Bristol Palin, who launched an abstinence campaign after giving birth as an unwed teenage mother, announced Thursday she is pregnant with her second child out-of-wedlock.
The disclosure came a month after her wedding with Medal of Honor winner Dakota Meyer was called off.
Palin, the daughter of 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, directed Twitter followers and Facebook friends to her blog, where she announced the pregnancy. Her representative, David Martin, and Palin family lawyer John Tiemessen confirmed the blog post.
Martin declined further comment.
“I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you,” the 24-year-old Palin wrote, before asking for privacy for her and her son Tripp.
