Bristol Palin on The Secret Life of the American Teenager: First Photo

by at . Comments

The Secret Life of the American Teenager is set to welcome an American teenager whose personal life has been anything but secret for the past two years.

Bristol Palin, 19, will appear as herself in the July 5 episode.

The series, now in its third season, focuses on families, friends and how they deal with the unexpected pregnancy, and subsequent motherhood, of a teen.

Main character Amy Juergens, played by Shailene Woodley, will befriend Bristol Palin at a program for teen mothers, at which point Bristol delivers her line:

"We're all teen moms and musicians. The program – it's for teen moms."

Nice. Here's a photo of The Secret Life of the American Teenager moms ...

Having just gotten back together with baby daddy Levi Johnston, according to reports, things are going well for Bristol, mother of 18-month-old Tripp.

As well as they can be expected to, at least. The daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin takes care of herself and Tripp by working multiple jobs.

Aside from the controversy of Mercede Johnston's blog, life is really on the upswing these days, and we look forward to seeing Bristol's TV debut.

Follow the jump for a clip of her on the show ...


Teen pregnancy is a retilay in this country. I hope the Bristol's pregnancy will open conversations across the country with mothers and daughters. Girls need to know that this can happen to everyone, not just teen celebs. It is honorable that she will be having the baby and in the height of her pregnancy while promenading through the political arena. I hope the media isn't cruel to her. She is after all a teenager that obviously made a poor judgment call.


Isn't everyone on this show pregnant? Even the virgins? PS - Is it me or is Bristol Palin slowly morphing into a chipmunk?


Her performance is beyond wooden... it's petrified.


@Sam: It's true. She really does deposit the paychecks she's earned from all her public appearances and tabloid covers in a sensitive manner.


The brief clip of Bristol Palin's acting debut shows the rare talent, sensitivity, and astonishing beauty of Gov. Palin's eldest daughter.

Bristol Palin Quotes

Teenagers need to prevent pregnancy to begin with -- this isn't ideal. But I'm fortunate to have a supportive family, which is dealing with this together.

Bristol Palin

Tripp is so perfectly precious; we love him with all our hearts. I can't imagine life without him now.
