Bristol Palin, Daughter of Sarah Palin, is Pregnant

by at . Comments

Bristol Palin, the 17-year-old daughter of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, is five months pregnant, according to reports.

In an official announcement intended to knock down rumors by liberal bloggers that Sarah Palin faked her own pregnancy to cover up for her child, the Alaska Governor herself confirmed that her teenage daughter is expecting.

One of five children of Sarah and Todd Palin, Bristol is about five months along and is planning to keep the child and marry the father.

Bristol Palin made the decision on her own to keep the baby.

Bristol Palin (right) was rumored to be the real mother of Sarah Palin's infant son, born in May. According to the Palins, that's not true - but she is pregnant now.

Presidential hopeful John McCain, who named Palin as his running mate last week, knew of Bristol's pregnancy when he selected Sarah.

McCain officials said the news of the Bristol Palin pregnancy was being released to rebut what one aide called "mud-slinging and lies."

The rumors specifically revolved around a pregnancy scandal - that Sarah Palin had faked her most recent pregnancy and pretended to have given birth in May 2008 to her fifth child, a son named Trig, who has Down syndrome.

The gossip going around was that Trig was actually Bristol's child and that Sarah Palin the grandmother, covering up for her teen daughter.

Follow the jump for the Palins' statement on the subject ...

"We have been blessed with five wonderful children who we love with all our heart and mean everything to us. Our beautiful daughter Bristol came to us with news that as parents we knew would make her grow up faster than we had ever planned."

"As Bristol faces the responsibilities of adulthood, she knows she has our unconditional love and support."

"Bristol and the young man she will marry are going to realize very quickly the difficulties of raising a child, which is why they will have the love and support of our entire family. We ask the media, respect our daughter and Levi's privacy as has always been the tradition of children of candidates."

What do you think? Will this hurt Sarah Palin with voters?


Typical bible thumpers(republicans) the girl makes 1 mistake (unprotected sex) gets pregnant and now to save face for the elite shes marrying the father. Wow, what a life lesson. How about stay in school raise the kid go to collage and if the fathers still actively involved marry him , latter in life when your grown up. We forgive you for your first mistake,.. not force you to make another.


hhahaahhah! family values, church going, gun lover, abstinence preacher... and this is what she gets? a daughter that cant get her legs crossed?
see america? she cant even raise her kids right and she thinks she can be vp?
these people are nothing but rednecks! plus shes under investigation... just so you know! wow this is the best the GOP can come up with??


Don't they have scumbags in Alaske or is that agin their religion?

Avatar This site contains incriminating evidence that suggests that Bristol is the mother. It includes captions with her boyfriend's sister holding the baby, etc.


Another reason why conservatives dont live in the real world. Pro-Life + Pro-Guns.
Teaching abstinence.. How do you actually TEACH abstinence?
Dont have sex. its a sin
I see the father is called Levi... who obviously wasnt wearing any...


isn't this "baby mamma" redux? didn't fox news use that term to refer to michelle obama back in june? are they using that term to refer to palin's daughter? just curious?


It's not the child healthy labido that astounds me nor that she even became pregnant ... but it's the fact that she is the daughter of a bible thumping mother who spews the very values she can not even instill in her home and who, while preaching abstaining overloked explaining the minor details of birth control. This is beyond idiocy.


This is a plus. As Mark Steyn points out in his recent best seller, America Alone, if our western civilization is demographically to survive in the increasingly “hostile to the west� islamic world — and not end up like the sinking European populations — these are the precise people (the Bristol Palins’) we should thank for increasing their progeny.


And, in support of my last comment, I quote from the statement of conservative apologist Dr. James Dobson: "...they should be commended once again for not just talking about their pro-life and pro-family values, but living them out even in the midst of trying circumstances. "Being a Christian does not mean you're perfect. Nor does it mean your children are perfect. But it does mean there is forgiveness and restoration when we confess our imperfections to the Lord. I've been the beneficiary of that forgiveness and restoration in my own life countless times, as I'm sure the Palins have. "The media are already trying to spin this as evidence Gov. Palin is a 'hypocrite,' but all it really means is that she and her family are human.


In answer to your question: No, this will not hurt Palin with conservative voters; they only care when liberals or moderates appear immoral. When conservatives show any sign of vice or moral 'flexibility,' it's explained away and forgotten.

Sarah Palin Quotes

What I've had to do, though, is in the middle of the night, put down the Blackberries and pick up the breast pump. Do a couple of things different and still get it all done.

Sarah Palin

I am thankful to be married to a man who loves being a dad as much as I love being a mom so he is my strength. And practically speaking, we have a great network of help with lots of grandparents and aunties and uncles all around us. We have a lot of help.
