The reality star, who has made a huge chunk of change promoting so-called family values and sexual abstinence despite having a child out of wedlock as a teen, just announced she is pregnant again — a month after calling off her wedding to war hero Dakota Meyer.
Palin made the announcement on her blog, which is hosted by the faith-based site Patheos.
"I wanted you guys to be the first to know that I am pregnant," she wrote. "Honestly, I've been trying my hardest to keep my chin up on this one.
"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. Life moves on no matter what. So no matter how you feel, you get up, get dressed, show up, and never give up. When life gets tough, there is no other option but to get tougher.
"I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you. But please respect Tripp's and my privacy during this time. I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy," she continued.
"My little family always has, and always will come first. Tripp, this new baby, and I will all be fine, because God is merciful."
The internet immediately lit ip with people calling Palin out over the hypocrisy of presenting herself as a conservative Christian while having her second out-of-wedlock pregnancy.
@BristolsBlog Because abstinence works! Well, if you lay off the wine coolers and meth. Any idea who babydaddy is?— Sam Handwich (@YAMSBADGER) June 25, 2015
@BristolsBlog So sorry to hear that you're going to hell. That's harsh. Good thoughts.— John Grant (@grantjohna_john) June 25, 2015
@BristolsBlog Wow! Did you know somebody claiming to be you was paid $250,000 to lecture people about the importance of abstinence?— Tim Mohr (@DumbAnguish) June 25, 2015
But one tweet really got us thinking...
When Palin and Meyer's canceled nuptials were announced, she angrily denied claims that the relationship fell apart because he hid his first marriage from her. She worded her pregnancy announcement carefully, avoiding any mention of who the baby daddy is this time — and you would think that if it was Meyer, she would have said so. Go ahead and read between those lines any way you want.
