During an interview with CBS News, the former governor of Alaska said it is her faith in God that has her excusing her daughter’s hypocritical pregnancy.
“Well, the cool thing about putting your faith in God… is he certainly is a God of second chances and third and fourth and fifth chances,” Sarah explained when asked how she responds to people who say Bristol’s pregnancy goes against everything the family stands for.
Although, the soon-to-be grandma for a second time did concede that the pregnancy was not ideal.
When CBS correspondent Tracy Smith addressed the pregnancy by saying, “That can’t be how you saw this playing out, unmarried and pregnant again.”
Palin responded, “Heck, no!”
“Being a single mom is . . . oh my goodness,” she added. “My heart goes out to the single parents, but my enormous admiration for what they’re able to accomplish doing double duty. And I watch Bristol do double duty all the time with her little boy, Tripp.”
Bristol announced her second pregnancy about a month after she ended her engagement to Dakota Meyer back in May. Her first son, Tripp, is from her previous relationship with her prior fiancé, Levi Johnson.
Bristol is expecting a baby girl this time around.
At the time, Bristol admitted that the second pregnancy was not easy to accept.
“Honestly, I’ve been trying my hardest to keep my chin up on this one,” she explained in her blog. “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.”
