(Newser) – First comes love, then comes an almost-marriage that gets called off at the last minute with no explanation, then comes a baby in a baby carriage whose father isn't explicitly announced, then comes a nasty custody battle, then comes ... actual marriage. Yes, Bristol Palin and Dakota Meyer secretly got hitched, they announced to ETOnline Wednesday. "Life is full of ups and downs but in the end, you'll end up where you're supposed to be," the couple says. "Hard work and God's grace are the foundation of our new life together, and with the love and support of our family we know we can get through anything."

Rumors had been flying that Palin and Meyer were back together after recent social media posts, like a picture of the couple together that Meyer posted on Facebook Tuesday along with a cryptic note about never giving up. He also posted a photo on Instagram of them fishing together last week. Last month, Palin posted a photo on Instagram of the two of them together with their daughter captioned, "#coparenting." And then, in perhaps the pièce de résistance, she posted a photo of the three of them together again on May 26 captioned, "b a b y d a d d y b f f." (Meyer was once pictured holding a baby near an unsecured gun.)
