Everyone assumed that Dakota Meyer was the father of Bristol Palin’s new little girl, but for some reason, these two decided to stay quiet about it all. Bristol didn’t confirm who the father was and basically avoided the subject. Radar Online is now sharing that Dakota himself has confirmed that he is the father of Bristol Palin’s new little bundle of joy. Although the two didn’t get married, they are going to always be connected now. Her daughter Sailor Grace was born on Christmas Eve.
Dakota Meyer went to his Twitter page to confirm that the baby girl is his and that he is blessed to be sharing a daughter with Bristol Palin.

Back in May, Dakota Meyer and Bristol Palin had big plans to get married. Just a couple of days before the wedding, Bristol admitted to the world that they were calling it off. Bristol said that it was “painful.” A month after that, Bristol shared that she was pregnant, saying it was a “huge disappointment” to her family. Bristol refused to share who the father was which caused a lot of speculation.
Heavy shared the statement Bristol Palin released after their wedding was canceled.
“Regarding salacious headlines in recent days about ‘secret wives,’ Dakota and I discussed our past relationships prior to our engagement. Dakota was legally divorced years ago, as any good reporter could and should have disclosed to readers. As usual, false stories and dramatically written headlines begging controversy should be disregarded, and we have faith that our privacy will be respected at this time by those with decency.”
It was obvious that Bristol Palin got pregnant while she was still with Dakota Mayer, but the fact that she wouldn’t admit if the baby was his had everyone wondering. There was speculation that Bristol could have been with someone else, and this might be one reason that she didn’t share who the father of the baby was, but obviously that is not the case at all. Bristol revealed that her second pregnancy was actually planned.
There was also a bit of speculation about why Bristol and Dakota didn’t end up getting married. Meyer was previously married to Cassandra Will of it and didn’t want to share if he was divorced or what went on with these two.
When the news came out about Bristol Palin’s pregnancy, Radar Online did share that Dakota was the father, but neither Dakota nor Bristol was willing to confirm this news. It is great that now the truth is out and everyone knows that he is the father of their little girl. Hopefully, Bristol and Dakota can work well together when it comes to their daughter.
There are a few things about the birth of Bristol Palin’s’ daughter that are odd, though. Dakota Meyer was not in the delivery room with Palin at all during the birth of the baby. Her sister Piper and friend Marina Lupas were both in the room with her. They are also giving the little girl the last name Palin so her name will be Sailor Grace Palin.
