Rumor Confirmed! Bristol Palin Drops Relationship Bombshell

The rumors have been confirmed — Bristol Palin, daughter of reality star and former governor of Alaska Sarah Palin — is married!

After a year of “baby daddy drama” with ex Dakota Meyer, including a called-off marriage and a custody battle over their shared daughter Sailor Grace, the two unexpectedly announced that they are married.

The two shared the happy, surprising news with Entertainment Tonight.

“Life is full of ups and downs but in the end, you’ll end up where you’re supposed to be,” they told ET. “We are so happy to share with loved ones the wonderful news that we got married!”

Didn’t see that one coming.

The 25-year-old reality star and 27-year-old Marine Corps vet sparked relationship rumors and whispers that their tumultuous, on-again, off-again romance was definitely “on again” when Dakota Meyer published a sweet, speculative post on his Facebook page, sharing a picture showing himself smiling, while a clearly happy and definitely be-ringed Palin grasps his bicep lovingly and smiles, as well.

“On one hand, we know that everything happens for a reason, and there are no mistakes or coincidences,” Meyer, 27, captioned it. “On the other hand, we learn that we can never give up, knowing that with the right tools and energy, we can reverse any decree or karma. So, which is it? Let the Light decide, or never give up? The answer is: both.”

Awww. How sweet.

Of course, many Facebook fans and friends were quick to point out that Bristol Palin clearly seemed to be wearing an engagement ring and a wedding band, but it wasn’t until Wednesday that the happy couple confirmed their news to Entertainment Tonight.

“Life is full of ups and downs but in the end, you’ll end up where you’re supposed to be,” the newlyweds told ET. “We are so happy to share with loved ones the wonderful news that we got married!”
