Alaska Governor and former Republican V.P. candidate Sarah Palin welcomed her first grandchild this week, but admitted that she felt both fear and despair when she first learned that her teenage daughter Bristol was expecting.

"We are over the moon with the arrival of this healthy, beautiful baby," Sarah Palin said in a statement dated December 31 and posted Friday. "The road ahead for this young couple will not be easy, but nothing worthwhile is ever easy."
