Congratulations to former reality TV show star Bristol Palin on the birth of her third child, a daughter, with her husband Dakota Meyer.
The daughter to former Alaska governor and US Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin shared the news on her Instagram account. “Welcome to the world Atlee Bay” the former Dancing with the Stars alum captioned a photo of herself cradling her newborn with her husband by her side.
Palin and Meyer married last year and are parents to 1-year old daughter Sailor Grace
; and 8-year old son Tripp Johnston,
who is Bristol’s son with her ex-fiancé Levi Johnston.
Bristol Palin may have kept her baby bump hidden on social media throughout most of her pregnancy, but the expectant mom proudly showed off her growing stomach on Thursday in celebration of her final trimester.
The 26-year-old, who is about seven months pregnant, took to Instagram this afternoon to share a photo of herself flaunting her baby bump in a long black top.
‘Last trimester!’ she captioned the selfie, which sees her posing in front of a mirror in her Alaska home.
Bristol Palin and her husband, Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer, are expecting their second child together, Palin’s third.
The couple announced the news with a photo this past Friday, December 9 of Palin, husband Dakota Meyer, and the Dancing with the Stars alum’s 1-year-old daughter, Sailor, as well as Bristol’s 7-year-old son, Tripp, who she shares with ex-fiancé Levi Johnston.
“We are so excited to announce that our family is expanding!” the couple said in an exclusive statement. “God has blessed us so much; we are thankful for His grace and new beginnings. A springtime baby in the Meyer home and we can’t wait!”
The duo married this June 2016 but after the couple got engaged in May 2015, then called off the wedding. When paternity tests showed that Meyer was Sailor’s dad, he filed for joint legal and physical custody of the newborn, as well as child support from Bristol. Shortly after, they rekindled their romance and got hitched!
Palin is the eldest daughter to former Alaska Governer Sarah Palin.

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.
