Her due date is coming close and Bristol Palin is happy to share her growing baby bump with the world. She is now seven-and-a-half months pregnant with her second child, and even though this baby will once again be born out of wedlock, she is still thrilled about this little bundle of joy. The former reality star also revealed whether she is having another boy or a girl.
Palin took to her blog to post a recent photo of herself holding her bulging tummy in what looks to be at her home in Alaska. She is wearing dark leggings, a matching top and jacket and knee-length boots. She revealed that she is having a baby girl this time around. “P.S. I’ve got a baby girl on board!” she wrote.
She also posted the same photo on her Instagram as well. The controversial daughter of Sarah Palin announced her surprise pregnancy in June as she wrote how disappointed everyone would be with her once again. She took a lot of heat on having yet another child out of wedlock, as expected.
This baby is apparently the child of Bristol’s former fiancé, Dakota Meyer, whom she was supposed to marry last May. The wedding was called off and the baby announcement came a month later.
Bristol Palin is notorious for speaking out on her conservative views, especially on birth control and abortion. Even though she supposedly got pregnant unexpectedly, the 24-year-old mom says that she would always choose to give life to her child.
With a recent post that Bristol Palin wrote about birth control, haters came out in droves. Most people told her that she should not be discussing anything about this issue, especially when she has been pregnant twice now with two different men. The topic that she had been talking about was that middle schoolers in Washington State could have IUD’s inserted without their parent’s permission. She voiced her concerns about it.
“I know I’m the last to talk about birth control. (Two baby daddies right? LOLZ!). But I am expecting a girl and do have a 14 year old sister and I would be so concerned for her going into a clinic and having something pretty serious put into her body.”
Palin said that she is not against birth control, but that she had concerns that these girls could do this procedure without their parent’s permission. She doesn’t think that the government should be involved in what is a parental decision with their child.
“I’m not against birth control by ANY MEANS so do not twist my words. But I am against the government going between a parent and a child at such a young age. THERE IS A BIG DAMN DIFFERENCE. 10-11-12 year olds don’t know what’s best for them.”
Bristol doesn’t seem to be dating anyone right now, and that is probably a good thing at this point. She is focusing on the upcoming birth of her baby girl and spending some quality time with son Tripp before that happens. She will have her hands full with trying to raise two kids by herself, but then again, she does have her family close by to help out when needed, including Grandma Sarah.
While many are hating on Bristol Palin because they may see her as being judgmental and hypocritical, she has admitted her mistakes when it comes to sex and family planning. However, she does not feel that having a baby is a mistake at all, even having one twice out of wedlock. The expectant mom had previously blogged that her plan to have more kids kind of backfired at that time.
“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.”
Indeed she has moved on and is now looking ahead to her new life with her two kids. There is no doubt that this baby girl will bring joy to the life of Bristol Palin and the rest of her family.
