Bristol Palin revealed her baby bump for the first time in a selfie celebrating six years working as a medical assistant. Palin has yet to name the father of her new baby.
Palin posted a selfie on Instagram that gives fans the first glimpse of her tiny – but growing – belly, reports People magazine. Bristol Palin, who is wearing a black jacket and white top, is making “duck lips” in the photo. Although the baby bump is small, you can still see it!
“Celebrated six years working for the best people I know. This place is my home (I actually have a job #shocker)” told her fans — although she didn’t mention the baby bump. Bristol has been attacking her media detractors lately over criticisms of her second baby, both over Instagram and on her blog, Patheos.
“I’ve been trying my hardest to keep my chin up on this one. I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family,” Bristol Palin wrote in a recent blog post on Patheos in which Palin announced she’s pregnant again. “But please respect Tripp’s and my privacy during this time. I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy.”
Palin still hasn’t revealed the identity of the father, although fingers are pointing at ex-fiancé Dakota Meyer, a former U.S. Marine, as the cause of Bristol’s new baby bump. Although Bristol was set to marry Meyer, just days before her wedding, Sarah Palin announced the couple had split.
Meyer has also kept mum about possibly becoming a father as previously reported by the Inquisitr, although he did upload a snap to Facebook, criticizing the media for being more concerned about Bristol Palin’s bump than current world issues. “‘I urge you to go beyond what is spoon fed to you and see what is truly going on out there,” the ex-marine said, according to the Daily Mail.
Bristol Palin has waffled back and forth about whether the baby was planned, initially apologizing tearfully for “disappointing” her followers, but immediately about-faced, and fired back at critics, writing, “This pregnancy was actually planned. Everyone knows I wanted more kids, to have a bigger family. Believing I was heading that way, I got ahead of myself. Things didn’t go as planned, but life keeps going. Life moves on.”
Bristol Palin’s new baby bump and broken engagement isn’t her first — Bristol has a son, Tripp, who is six, with ex-fiancé Levi Johnston.
