‘I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you,’ Bristol added.

Bristol did not reveal who the father of her second baby is. Bristol announced her engagement to US Marine Dakota Meyer in March of this year. The couple had been dating for less than a year at the time of their engagement. However, their relationship was short lived as Bristol and Meyer parted ways last month. Bristol’s mother made the announcement on her behalf, explaining their wedding had been called off via a Facebook post. 

24-year-old Bristol is the eldest daughter of the ultra conservative former Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin. Bristol came to prominence in 2008 during her mother’s unsuccessful run for Vice President when her pregnancy – out of wedlock – was announced. She was 17 at the time and gave birth to her first child, a son Tripp. Tripp’s father was Bristol’s then partner Levi Johnston

Bristol and Levi planned to marry but rumours surrounding their unhappy relationship began circulating soon after the birth of their child. Bristol, hypocritically, became an advocate for teen abstinence. Bristol has made something of a career out of her pseudo celebrity status by appearing on numerous reality shows including Dancing With the Stars and even starring in her own series, Bristol Palin: Life’s A Tripp
