A 9-month-old mystery may just have been solved.
On Christmas Eve, Palin shared the first photos of her newborn baby girl, Sailor Grace, who was born Wednesday. And while throughout Palin’s pregnancy, she never chose to reveal the identity of the little girl’s father, her ex-fiancé, Dakota Meyer, may have just given us a huge clue.
Meyer shared a photo of Sailor in her mom’s arms at the hospital on Twitter Thursday, with the caption, “Best Christmas present ever!! I couldn’t be more proud of this little blessing.”

Just before Palin announced her pregnancy, she and Meyer, a 27-year-old U.S. Marine veteran and Medal of Honor recipient, mysteriously called off their engagement. When Palin took to her blog to announce her pregnancy about a month later, she said the baby was not an accident. Meyer did not comment at the time. No further clues were revealed about the baby’s father’s identity — that is, until now.
Meyer isn’t the only one who’s excited about Sailor’s arrival — Palin’s mom, former Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin shared a note on Bristol Palin’s blog.
“Oh, perfect love! The best gift ever!” she wrote. “Thank you, Bristol, for your strength and good heart and your love of life. The most important people in Bristol’s life were there to witness the miracle of Sailor Grace Palin’s arrival last night.”
