Congratulations are in order for Bristol Palin.

The controversial former Dancing with the Stars contestant and daughter of Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin became a mother for the third time on Monday.

Bristol herself shared the exciting piece of news via the photo above, which included husband Dakota Meyer and the couple's precious new bundle of joy.

Is it a boy? Is it a girl?

What is his or her name?

Palin answered all of those questions with a short and simple caption.

"welcome to the world Atlee Bay," she wrote, confirming that she now has another daughter and her name is Atlee.

Meyer, meanwhile, also confirmed the birth as follows:

“Meet Atlee Bay!!! The newest edition of the Meyer family!! @bsmp2 #dadlife #ownthedash.”

This is the second child for the couple, who are also the parents of a girl named Sailor. (Palin is also the mom of an eight-year old son named Tripp with ex Levi Johnston.)

Palin announced she was pregnant in December, telling Entertainment Tonight that "God has blessed us so much; we are thankful for His grace and new beginnings" and adding:

"A springtime baby in the Meyer home and we can't wait!"

This was a far different way of telling the world she was expecting than the first two times Palin created life in her womb.

First, it came to light that she was pregnant out of wedlock while her mother was running for Vice President of the United States in 2008.

She and Johnston attempted to maintain a relationship throughout that Presidential campaign, but eventually broke up and now share custody of little Tripp.

Then, after Palin went on a few speaking tours and appeared as a contestant on Dancing with the Stars, she called off her 2015 wedding to Meyer, just two days prior to when they were scheduled to become husband a wife.

A few weeks later, she confessed she was pregnant.

“I don’t want any lectures," Palin wrote online about two years ago, refusing to name Meyer as her baby's father at the time and adding:

"Honestly, I’ve been trying my hardest to keep my chin up on this one. When life gets tough, there is no other option but to get tougher."

We don't agree with a single political take that comes out of Bristol's mouth, but we felt pretty terrible for her after this announcement.

You almost never see a celebrity admit they were going through an unwanted pregnancy.

But here she and Meyer are now, happily married with a brand new child to care for at home.

“The whole family couldn’t be more thrilled!” wrote Sarah Palin on her website yesterday.

Bristol and Dakota got married last year and we send them our wishes for a happy and healthy daughter.
