Levi Johnston, Bristol Palin Tattoo

Bristol Palin is the daughter of former Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Bristol Palin is 18 and a mother.

The announcement of a pregnant Bristol Palin came the same week as the September 2008 RNC. Great PR.

Bristol's father is Todd Palin and she has four siblings: Willow, Piper, Trig and Track Palin. The name of her baby's daddy has also now been revealed: He's an 18-year-old high school hockey player and self-proclaimed redneck named Levi Johnston.

The couple, who got engaged on more than one occasion and are now broken up, is the proud parents to Tripp Johnston. Bristol has admitted that being a teenage mom isn't ideal - but as Sarah Palin has said about the situation, "hey, life happens."

This is especially true when you don't teach your kids about contraception. Just sayin.

Bristol has proven to love attention almost as much as her mother: she's exploited her pregnancy for fame and fortune, actually competing, for example, on season 11 of Dancing with the Stars. We'll still awaiting word on what makes her a star.

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.
