Bristol Palin, oldest daughter of former Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska, and spokesperson on abstinence, is pregnant for the second time.
The 24-year-old revealed in her own blog that she has conceived for the second time. She says it is a matter of a huge disappointment for her family.
Bristol, who is a speaker on abstinence, has been criticized by several people for her revelation though she is clear she does not want to hear any lecture for this.
In the blog she mentioned, “At the end of the day there’s nothing I can’t do with God by my side, and I know I am fully capable of handling anything that is put in front of me with dignity and grace.” She also wrote, “When life gets tough, there is no other option but to get tougher.”
She asked people to respect her privacy. Her family will always be the most important thing in her life.
Sarah Palin had said Bristol and the baby’s father will get married some time. However, Levi Johnston and Bristol eventually ended the relationship.
Bristol was pregnant for the first time in 2008, the same time her mother was selected by U.S. Sen. John McCain to be his running mate. Bristol competed in the fall season of “Dancing with the Stars” and finished third place. She decided for a career as teen pregnancy prevention spokesperson and Teen Pregnancy Prevention Ambassador for the Candie’s Foundation in 2009. Her life has always been under scanner.
