Alaska Woman Pregnant

Illustration for article titled Alaska Woman Pregnant

Bristol Palin has announced in a blog post that she’s pregnant. Bristol Palin recently decided not to marry a man named Dakota. Well, shit.


In a brief post on Patheos, where she apparently maintains a blog, Palin the Younger announced the big news, in a post titled “Big News:”

(I’m announcing this news a lot sooner than I ever expected due to the constant trolls who have nothing better to talk about!!!)

I wanted you guys to be the first to know that I am pregnant.

Honestly, I’ve been trying my hardest to keep my chin up on this one.

At the end of the day there’s nothing I can’t do with God by my side, and I know I am fully capable of handling anything that is put in front of me with dignity and grace.

Life moves on no matter what. So no matter how you feel, you get up, get dressed, show up, and never give up.

When life gets tough, there is no other option but to get tougher.

I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you.

But please respect Tripp’s and my privacy during this time. I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy.

My little family always has, and always will come first.

Tripp, this new baby, and I will all be fine, because God is merciful.

In 2010, Palin was paid more than $250,000 to participate in a series of PSAs about the consequences of young motherhood:

God damn.

Wow. It’s almost like abstinence-only education doesn’t actually work. Who knew?
