Sarah and Bristol Palin Choose Life, Pimping Babies

by at . Comments

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and teenage daughter Bristol Palin both chose to have babies under tough circumstances. The decisions they made were honorable.

Posing with their sons on the cover of In Touch? Not so much!

It's hard to imagine a major political figure deciding it's smart to appear on the cover of a celebrity gossip magazine - a C-grade one at that - for credibility's sake.

This is not a sexist remark. We'd scratch our heads if Barack Obama were on the cover too ... next to Angie's "dangerous pregnancy" and Rachel Zoe's "scary diet" ...

They Chose Life

Bristol and Sarah Palin chose life ... and big paychecks!

Bristol Palin didn’t know what she was in for when Levi Johnston hit it without protection and knocked her up in 2008. But she gave birth to Tripp in December 2008.

Just a year earlier, at the age of 44, Sarah Palin carried her son Trig to term, even after she was told during a sonogram that he would be born with Down syndrome.

Now, the mother and daughter are sharing a unique experience - raising their baby boys together under the same roof and telling this fine publication all about it.

“The last few years have been unreal and surreal,” Sarah tells In Touch.

From our vantage point, we couldn't agree more.

Tripp sure is a cutie! And looks like Levi!


I have no problem with them 'choosing' life but wish they (and others like them) would stop trying to make that decision for others.


carrieoki, you have not read my comment properly. I'm stating that while Sarah did, indeed, give birth to Trig in April 2008, it was just three weeks later that her own daughter Bristol announced her pregnancy with Tripp. In reality, Sarah Palin had announced the pregnancy in March, stating, "I am not due until May 2008." Therefore, Trig was premature. However, in May 2008, Sarah had already given birth to Trig prematurely. Bristol came to her parents and discovered her own pregnancy when Trig was only three weeks old. So add another eight months, and then Bristol and Sarah gave birth to sons in the same year! "My uncle is only eight months older than me!" I'm not declaring any dispute over the birth mothers, just laughing at both. Yeah, both.


The babies are absolutely gorgeous...I would be proud to show them off too being that I am a mother of 3, I cant think of a time I havent pulled out photos of my kids (bath pics or not) to show them off to someone...its natural, so quit whinning about their provacy, theyre infants. And yes they got paid to take the photos and guess what? The kids are probably reaping the rewards of it aswell, wouldnt it be wonderful if we average mothers could get $$$ for photos of us with our kids so we could pay for their college without a second thought or being in debt, it seems to me like there are quite a lot of jealous people out there who are just mad because they arent as well off. get over yourselves, because there are plently of baby modeling agencies out there where parents get paid for photos of their children, are you going to them and complaining about THOSE children's privacy? No you are here saying something because of who the mother is and because you dont like her...


Helen - you're right. This article is about CHOOSING life. Isn't it fantastic that each of them is happy with her CHOICE?


I admire both Sarah and her daughter.They both could of had abortions and no one would have known. I'm looking forward to seeing more of Sarah on Fox news.


Palin is perfect for C-grade gossip tabloids. Actually, that's all she's suited to.


Actually, and also with you, "Correction." Actually, we were told Palin gave birth to Trig in April, 2008, but the fact is, Trig was handed off to Sarah Palin in April, 2008. To find out Trig's real birth date, we would need to see his birth certificate. Too bad it's not available by Alaska law. Sarah Palin has never taken legal action against numerous Alaskan blogs which state the fact that she did not physically give birth to Trig, and you know she whines and attacks much smaller issues! You can't sue the Truth.


Carmen, have you not seen articles with babies in them before? You sound like you live under a rock, or perhaps you just hate Palin and can't stand that she's popular. I doubt little Tripp will grow up feeling exploited that he made the cover of a magazine. Your comments are ridiculous. But thanks for the laugh. Get a life!


Actually, Palin gave birth to Trig in April 2008 (he was actually not expected to come until May or June 2008), while her daughter had Tripp that December. So in reality, they're only eight whole months apart. Just two weeks after Palin gave birth to Trig, Bristol and Levi announced the pregnancy to their family.


"Pimping" fits well. These two "ladies" are openly "selling" i.e. getting money for themselves from pictures of 2 babies who have no say in the matter and may grow up to resent being exploited. For most families around the world, bath photos are private! Have they no decency?
