Bristol Palin is rejoicing in the happy occasion of child birth, albeit, out of wedlock. The daughter of Republican half-term governor Sarah Palin, often preaches abstinence as her preferred way of life gave birth to her second child on Thursday.
Palin, 25, who has been an advocate of sexual abstinence before marriage, tweeted on Thursday that she had given birth to a girl, Sailor Grace. “My Heart Just Doubled,” she wrote.
The father was not named. Palin announced she was pregnant in June, a few weeks after her engagement to Medal of Honor winner Dakota Meyer was called off.
Her first pregnancy as a teenager gained widespread attention in 2008 when it was disclosed during her mother’s campaign as the running mate of Republican presidential nominee Senator John McCain.
Sarah Palin, a former Alaska governor, tweeted that the baby was born late on Wednesday. “Oh, perfect love! The best gift ever!” she wrote.
