Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol Palin, 17, is pregnant. Palin announced her daughter’s pregnancy news to stop the rumors going around about Palin faking her pregnancy to cover up for Bristol.
The photos above were found on a chick named Mercede’s myspace (private) and show Bristol and Trig, Sarah Palin, Bristol and Trig, Mercede and Trig, and there’s even a photo of Levi Johnson and Bristol. Check those out above!
The father of Bristol Palins baby is Wasilla teen, Levi Johnston, a source confirmed to Usmagazine.com late Monday night.
The hockey player attended alternative school Burchell High School last year.
The only thing is, could this be Bristol’s second pregnancy? Or is Trig actually Sarah’s baby boy? Well, we do know that Trig Palin is 4 months old. Trig Palin was born April 18, 2008. If Bristol Palin is 5 months pregnant, she would have had to have gotten pregnant immediately after giving birth to Trig. So makes you wonder if the stories are false and Sarah Palin is the actual mother to Trig?
Bristol Palin, one of Alaska Gov. Palin’s five children with her husband, Todd, is about five months pregnant and is keeping the baby and has plans to marry the father. That explains the photo above where Bristol appears to be wearing an engagement or wedding ring on her finger.
The Palins made the announcement today which was released by the John McCain campaign headquarters.
Bristol Palin made the decision on her own to keep the baby, McCain aides said. Sources have said the father of Bristol’s baby is named Levi.
“We have been blessed with five wonderful children who we love with all our heart and mean everything to us,” the Palins’ statement said.
“Our beautiful daughter Bristol came to us with news that as parents we knew would make her grow up faster than we had ever planned. As Bristol faces the responsibilities of adulthood, she knows she has our unconditional love and support,” the Palins said.
The Palins asked the news media to respect their daughter Bristol’s privacy in this matter.
“Bristol and the young man she will marry are going to realize very quickly the difficulties of raising a child, which is why they will have the love and support of our entire family. We ask the media, respect our daughter and Levi’s privacy as has always been the tradition of children of candidates,” the statement concluded.
McCain and his officials knew about Palin’s daughter’s pregnancy, when he chose Palin as his vice presidential running mate.
McCain officials said the news of the daughter’s pregnancy was being released to rebut what one aide called “mud-slinging and lies” circulating on liberal blog sites.
According to these rumors, Sarah Palin had faked a pregnancy and pretended to have given birth in May to her fifth child, a son named Trig who has Down syndrome. The rumor was that Trig was actually Bristol Palin’s child and that Sarah Palin was the grandmother.
A senior McCain campaign official said the McCain camp was appalled that these rumors had not only been spread around liberal blog sites and partisan Democrats, but also were the subject of heightened interest from mainstream news media.
The news was out there and this is a gossip website, so of course we will report on an interesting story.
So now we know Bristol, 17, is currently pregnant, but could baby Trig still be hers?
