Bristol Palin is pregnant, says she doesn’t want lectures or sympathy

Bristol Palin pregnant

Bristol Palin surprised fans (and family?) when she announced earlier today that she is pregnant with her second child.

In her blog entry, Bristol states “I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you.”

She then adds, “But please respect Tripp’s and my privacy during this time. I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy.”

Bristol, who broke off her engagement with fiance Sgt. Dakota Meyer last month after news broke of his previous “secret” marriage, suggested in her post that she was pressured into making the pregnancy announcement. The post began with this statement–and the parentheses are Bristol’s own: (I’m announcing this news a lot sooner than I ever expected due to the constant trolls who have nothing better to talk about!!!)

She continues:

I wanted you guys to be the first to know that I am pregnant.

Honestly, I’ve been trying my hardest to keep my chin up on this one.

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.

Life moves on no matter what. So no matter how you feel, you get up, get dressed, show up, and never give up.

When life gets tough, there is no other option but to get tougher.

From there, she talks about the inevitable disappointment among fans and family, as well as not wanting sympathy or lectures.

Bristol concludes by writing, “My little family always has, and always will come first. Tripp, this new baby, and I will all be fine, because God is merciful.”

Bristol provided no information as to who the father of the baby is.

  • Wowza

    I remember 6/7 years ago when her and her mom were on Oprah and Bristol made a promise to Oprah (and the world) that she would never have premarital sex again… and when Oprah pressed her on that promise by saying that’s a hard promise to keep she acted offended Oprah would say such a thing… ya know… her typical
    b!tchy, snarky, I’m better than you attitude Bristol always has.

  • Is Tripp her ex or her son!

    • SSSSS

      her son

  • EK620

    I don’t get it. She runs around & *lectures* against premarital sex (which is fine if that’s your thing…). But then behind closed doors she has premarital sex, gets pregnant and doesn’t want a lecture? Please, girl!

    I’m so sick of these hypocrites!

    • Charla

      It seems like every day in the news a religious spokesperson is admiting to transgressions, all the while demeaning others for their “immoral living.” The hypocrisy is astonishing with all of them.

      • EK620

        I couldn’t agree more! I’m so tired of it.

      • spottedgiraffe

        I don’t think Bristol should be considered a religious spokesperson but I get what you’re trying to say.

  • P

    I’m going to take a wild guess.. she cheated on her fiancé, got pregnant by the “other” guy, her fiance found out AND THAT is the real reason her wedding was cancelled at the last second. Just a guess lol.

    • Myndee

      That’s what a lot of people are saying. Bristol is already dragging the poor guys name through the mud to make herself the victim

    • EK620

      I wouldn’t be surprised. This entire family is trash, sad to say. Bristol & her parents got in to a drunken brawl a few months ago in Anchorage. Supposedly they were yelling “don’t you know who we are?!” at the people they were fighting with. Can’t remember the exact details but it was in the local paper this winter. Such an embarrassment to Alaska.

      • spottedgiraffe

        What a bunch of criminal thugs. Why weren’t they arrested?

        • EK620

          The homeowner (where the fights took place) declined to press charges.

          • spottedgiraffe

            What an idiot. Now they will think they’re above the law and pull this again.

            • EK620

              Agreed. And the worst part about the whole thing is that, according to police transcripts that were released, Bristol tells officers her 5 year old son was in the car the whole time they were inside partying. The car was in fact a stretch Hummer (yes, they arrived to a house party in a stretch hummer) and the child was likely being supervised by someone. Nevertheless, how trashy to get fall down, sloppy drunk with your child just outside.

              • Myndee

                How trashy to take your kid with you while you get sloppy drunk. She really couldn’t get a sitter at her house? Wasilla isn’t far from Anchorage, it’s not like she was leaving the state, she was going 45 minutes, tops, away.

    • Rachaele

      I wondered why she didn’t go through with the wedding. A past marriage when you are really young doesn’t seem like a deal breaker. Your theory makes more sense.

    • Guest

      Watch it the father be Tripp’s dad lmao

    • Kera

      That’s what I thought too. It was very strange, especially since up until then they seemed relatively happy together. I think it speaks volumes that she doesn’t make any mention of the father, and doesn’t even make it sound like he’ll be part of the kid’s life. Unless her ex is major d-bag you’d think he’d be supportive, and it wouldn’t have killed her to say ‘Even though we are not together XXXXX is supporting me and will be there for the baby.’ So yeah, I’m betting it’s someone else entirely and she just wants it to sound like it might be he ex-fiance’s baby so she doesn’t look like a major skank.

  • Murphy

    Yeahhhhh got pregnant with some other guy’s baby while engaged to a Medal of Honor recipient, CLASSY!!!

  • Hey Now

    I’m kinda shocked Willow hasn’t been pregnant yet. I watched a few episodes of their realty show a few years ago and she seemed pretty sneaky with her then boyfriend.

  • hmm

    Remember all those stories back then that questioned whether Sarah Palin was Trig’s real mother and suggested that Bristol was? That people who worked in Gov. Palin’s office at the time didn’t even know she was pregnant. I’m starting to wonder now. I mean I have seen more photos of Bristol with Trig over the years than I have Sarah with the him. Just sayin.

    • SSSSS

      yeah, sarah never looked pregnant in the photos from back then, but didn’t they come forward with news of bristol’s teen pregnancy to silence the rumors? Although, I guess she could have had babies back to back. I don’t remember whether or not the website I was looking at had found photos of Bristol during the time that Sarah was pregnant with Trig.

      • Megs

        I read several places and remember hearing back then Bristol was mysteriously out of school for an entire four months leading up to “Sarah’s” delivery. Not sure if that’s true or not, but if it is…Hmmmm

        • SSSSS

          I just went searching, and this is a really good article with compelling evidence that Trig is Bristol’s baby, not Sarah’s: starcasm is moderating my comment because I’m trying to add a link, so I’ll do it this way: kikoshouse[DOT]blogspot[DOT]com/2014/05/five-years-on-why-sarah-palin-birth.html

          • twelfthnight

            I can believe that. Besides, it was a perfect pity card for Sarah as a politician to have a handicapped kid. Sarah said in interviews they tested and knew before birth that he’d have down’s, so it wasn’t a surprise.

            It’d just be sad if she had a teenage daughter with a handicapped child, and she couldn’t use it for pity, people would just see her as a bad mother and Bristol as too incompetent to care for him.

            • spottedgiraffe

              Trig was nothing but a prop to use for when it was convenient. I remember Sarah had a family portrait done and everyone was in the photo but trig!

  • Jenn

    Maybe it’s time to start educating people on SAFE SEX and birth control since obviously her abstinence only education isn’t working. SMH


    You know who else didn’t want to be lectured? the kids who were forced to sit through your BS abstinence lectures. Hopefully they know more about birth control than you do–lets hope they had access to sex education in addition to your hypocritical abstinence speeches.

    • Jalek

      Her fees were $50k. Any group that hosted her must not have any funding concerns.

  • TA

    My favorite thing is when the extreme right Christians do something “sinful” and look like complete hypocrites and morons.
    But how sad that she announced to the world what a disappointment the baby is, poor child will read that someday.

  • blue9599

    Ah, abstinence only education at work folks.

    Maybe her own lectures can now include how to properly protect yourself.

    • SSSSS

      nah, she’ll charge double and say she really, really understands the importance of abstinence now.

    • Charla

      She was planning to be married by now so that her secret wouldn’t have gotten out. Lol She’ll probably say she only did the deeds once and somehow got pregnant. Lol

  • Bec

    Damn!it how hard is it to use birth control people? Get an implant and be done with it. What she means by the whole, “god is merciful” thing is, we have lots of money so I’ll be good.

  • twelfthnight

    My feelings echo everyone else’s. But on top of that, I wonder what they’re going to name this kid? I hope it’s not a boy, the boys in this family get the short end of the stick when it comes to names. Trig, Track, Tripp…. God isn’t that merciful if he lets you name a kid something like that.

    • kik

      Tug lol

      • masha

        Tug… That’s what got her in that situation in the first place ??

        • Bruja

          +100 points to you! =-)

    • Charla

      Probably Leaf, Trout, Black Bear, or something along those lines.

    • Kera

      I dunno her ex Levi Johnston named one his daughters ‘Breeze Beretta’. I wouldn’t be surprised if Bristol tried to compete with him and gave her daughter an even more stupid name.

    • spottedgiraffe

      Probably will name him Antler

    • Bruja

      Tic Tac!

    • Jen M

      Slipp or Dipp.

  • BreBreezieBre

    Poor woe is me Bristol, how about practicing what you preach! Put your big girl panties on and take what ever lecture people give. How about if you want people to respect your privacy then don’t go directly to the Internet and post that you are pregnant. I guess this is the real reason the wedding was called off

  • Shani

    I hope she names is Tropp. There’s just something magical about Tripp and Tropp together… makes me think of horses.

    • c8h10n4o2

      The Billygoats Gruff fairy tale comes to mind!

  • Me

    Seeing everyone’s comments about Bristol speaking out and lecturing about waiting to have sex or use protection.. makes me think of Teen Mom girls.. they get paid to to do those talks and Catelynn and Maci just had there 2nd ones and still not married.. with all these girls telling others to wait and they are still getting paid while not following their own advice.. Great examples..

    • Guest

      The Teen Mom girls are promoting safe sex which is very different from abstinence. But I get your point.

  • Lauren

    So much for practicing what you preach. You don’t want any lectures? Then don’t go running your mouth about being abstinent & whatever & then turn up pregnant. Own up to your crap & admit that you’re an adult who has sex & got knocked up. It’s not the end of the world. But lose the entitled attitude & ignorance.

  • Guest

    What a hypocrite.

    “At the end of the day there’s nothing I can’t do with God by my side”. I’m sure God wasn’t even on her mind before she got knocked up.

  • What a Turd

    I believe in abstinence, but I can’t stand these people that go preach about it and don’t practice what they preach. If you want have sex that’s fine. But don’t go all high and mighty on everyone only to be like “Hey sorry I’m pregnant”. And anyway, if you choose to be abstinent you don’t have to go waiving it everyone’s face. It’s suppose to be a private thing dumb*ss. She’s such a horrible example though and a two faced Christian. You say one thing. Practice another.

  • LaLa84

    Why would anyone give her sympathy for spreading her legs and not using birth control??

  • And her mother was worried about the Obama girls wearing short dresses not to long ago! This family reminds me of the Duggars, they preach and lecture other but do everything they just preached about not doing!

  • abcdefg98988

    Avoid going to megachurches, they have a shallow worldview. The Amish and the Mennonites are the strictest group in Christianity. Megachurches sometimes mislead people.

  • Miranda

    this is the funniest thing i have read all day. She has one brain cell and it doesn’t work.

  • gemma

    So let’s announce your big OOPS to the media so that one day this child can go back and read exactly how big of a disappointment he or she was to you.

  • savannah

    SYMPATHY? Oh no honey, no sympathy for someone who has preached so hard about “abstinance” and then got knocked up AGAIN, outside wedlock and tried to cover it up with a quickie marriage. No sympathy, clearly you know the inner workings on how a baby is made, preached to the masses on how awful it was to have a baby before marriage and then did the exact same thing AGAIN…My god. I hope your publishing company asks for their money back on the book you wrote on “abstaining until marriage”. I have NO issues with people making mistakes, we’re all human, I do however take issue with people who preach against the mistakes their making while banking the money that came from their career of hypocrisy.

  • Just another shining example of people who hold themselves up as role models, only to be shot down by their own stupidity. Just like the Duggars. Don’t put yourself on a pedestal if you have something to hide – it always comes out in the end. Stupid, stupid girl.
