Bristol Palin is expecting her second child.
The former Dancing With The Stars contestant announced the news which she described as “disappointing” in a blog post today:
“I wanted you to be the first to know that I am pregnant,” she wrote on her blog. “Honestly, 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, to my close friends, and to many of you,” she added.
The former two-time reality show star and memoir author continued, “at the end of the day there’s nothing I can’t do with God by my side, and I know I am fully capable of handling anything that is put in front of me with dignity and grace.”
Bristol, whose mom is the former Alaska governor and U.S. Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, was engaged to U.S. Marine veteran Dakota Meyer. The two called off their wedding days before the blessed event.
Bristol was thrust into the limelight when her mom, a staunch family values advocate, had to announce her pregnancy on the first day of the Republican presidential convention. She later got engaged to Levi Johnston who is the father to her first son in December 2008. They broke up a few months after, however.
She did not disclose who is her second child’s dad is.
