Track and Britta Palin Welcome First Child!

by at . Comments

Sarah Palin is a grandmother again.

This time, it's her eldest son, Track Palin, and his wife Britta who welcomed their first child! Reporter Joe McGinniss, who is writing a book on the former vice presidential candidate, confirmed the news late yesterday.

Track and Britta had a baby girl named Kyla Grace Palin on Sunday night.

In May, it was announced that high school sweethearts Track Palin and Britta Hanson had tied the knot. The family never officially confirmed the pregnancy.

Britta was once roommates with Track's younger sister, Bristol Palin, in Anchorage. Bristol welcomed her son, Tripp, around two and a half years ago now.

Track's wife served as an executive secretary in the governor's office at one point, and she is currently a nursing student at the University of Alaska.

Track Palin, the eldest of Sarah and Todd Palin's five kids, is an Army Reservist, and has said he plans to study at the University of Alaska as well.

That will wait until after the commercial fishing season ends, however.

Track's name has been in the news for other reasons recently, after Mercede Johnston, sister of Bristol's ex-fiance Levi Johnston, claimed in an interview that Sarah made him join the Army because of his drug abuse.

Who knows if that's true. Congratulations to the couple on the most joyous of occasions, the birth of their beautiful baby daughter, in any event!
