How can a pregnancy be "planned" but also a "huge disappointment" to one’s family and close friends? Well, that's what Bristol Palin is serving up in her latest public statement following her pregnancy announcement last week. At the time, the 24-year-old sounded a tad forlorn. "I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you," she wrote. "Honestly, I've been trying my hardest to keep my chin up on this one." The rest of her blog post read as if she was making lemonade out of life's lemons, which makes her latest declaration a surprise.
"I made a mistake, but it's not the mistake all these giddy a$$holes have loved to assume," Palin writes in another Patheos blog post. "This pregnancy was actually planned." Although the daughter of Sarah Palin has not revealed who the father of the child is, notes People, she was engaged to 27-year-old Dakota Meyer up until a month ago. "Everyone knows I wanted more kids, to have a bigger family," she continues. "Believing I was heading that way, I got ahead of myself. Things didn't go as planned, but life keeps going." Palin also has a 6-year-old son with ex-fiance Levi Johnston.
