Bristol Palin just announced she’s pregnant with her second child.
A month after canceling her wedding, Bristol Palin has announced that she’s pregnant.
“I wanted you guys to be the first to know that I am pregnant,” shewrote in a blog post on the religious website Patheos. “Honestly, I’ve been trying my hardest to keep my chin up on this one.”
She continued, “I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you. But please respect [my 6-year-old son] Tripp’s and my privacy during this time. I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy.”
I am genuinely sorry that Bristol Palin lives in a world where getting pregnant out of wedlock — even if she considers it a mistake — would be viewed as a “huge disappointment” from her family and “close friends.” What kind of religious Web site is Pahteos that she has to preemptively inform its readers that she doesn’t “want any lectures”? And if she ever changes her mind about wanting sympathy, she has mine.
