Bristol Palin is officially a mother of three after welcoming daughter Atlee Bay in early May. The 26-year-old took to social media to announce the birth of her third child as she posed with husband Dakota Meyer and their new daughter while still in the hospital.
Since then, Bristol has been continuously updating her followers with photos of little Atlee as the family embraces the newborn. Palin has posted photos showing her growing family of five as she introduced 8-year-old son Tripp and 1-year-old daughter Sailor to their new sibling.
Bristol captioned one such image with “everything in life right here” as she and Meyer smiled for the camera alongside their children. Fans have taken to commenting on the post as they show their support for Palin and Meyer by telling them they have a beautiful family.
“Congratulations! You have an absolutely beautiful family.”
Another Instagram user even thanked Bristol for sharing glimpses into her family life as she shares photos of her newborn baby.
“Awww. So beautiful. Congratulations and so happy for y’all. Thanks for sharing these special moments with us.”
While Bristol is known for being the center of controversy as the daughter of former Governor Sarah Palin, there were no detectable haters on her most recent posts showcasing Atlee.
Bristol’s latest photo of baby Atlee came this week as she gave her followers a look at her daughter wearing a monogrammed nightgown. Her fans seem to like the name she chose for her second daughter as they complimented Atlee in the comments.
“I just love her name!!!!! So precious!”
People magazine reported on Atlee Bay’s birth back on May 8 when Palin and Meyer first told the public their baby was born.
“Bristol Palin and her husband Dakota Meyer welcomed their daughter, Atlee Bay, with both of her parents taking to Instagram to share the good news on Monday.”
The article quoted Bristol as saying “welcome to the world” to her little girl, while Dakota “couldn’t contain his excitement at becoming a father for the second time” as he enthusiastically captioned his post.
“Meet Atlee Bay!!! The newest edition of the Meyer family!! @bsmp2 #dadlife #ownthedash.”
Meyer has since gone on to also share images of Atlee, who is his second child with Palin, on social media.
Bristol shares son Tripp with ex Levi Johnston, but that hasn’t kept Dakota from being a doting stepfather as he embraces his growing family. In fact, he also shares photos with his wife’s 9-year-old brother, Trig, as he enjoys spending time with her family as well.
When it comes to Bristol’s family, Sarah Palin took to social media to share her congratulations on Atlee’s birth. The former governor of Alaska took to her website to share an image of Bristol and Dakota as she shared her excitement.
“The whole family couldn’t be more thrilled!”
Bristol and Dakota seem to have put their rocky past behind them as they work on expanding their family and share happy photos with followers. Just weeks after giving birth, Bristol posted a family photo showing her and Meyer with all three children.
She had a heartfelt caption to convey how she’s currently feeling about her life with Dakota as well.
“My [heart] is so full.”
Readers may remember the couple split up after calling off their wedding in March 2015. However, they quietly rekindled their romance after she gave birth to their first daughter, and they eventually married in a private ceremony.
E! News covered the couple’s relationship timeline as it did get a bit complicated. The site quoted the pair as confirming they did indeed get married in 2016.
“Life is full of ups and downs but in the end, you’ll end up where you’re supposed to be. We are so happy to share with loved ones the wonderful news that we got married!”
Indeed, it appears as if Bristol and Dakota are living their “happily ever after” as they continue to share photos of their newborn daughter alongside their growing family.
