Bristol Palin: Just Kidding, My Pregnancy Was Actually Planned

It's a "blessing," not a disappointment

Liz Raftery

Less than 48 hours after posting a less-than-joyous pregnancy announcement on her personal blog, Bristol Palin is now reversing course and saying that the pregnancy was totally planned.

"So here are the things you should all get straight before you continue to mock me, judge me, and talk about me," Palin wrote on Sunday, in a post titled "My Little Blessing." "None of us are perfect. I made a mistake, but it's not the mistake all these giddy a--holes have loved to assume. This pregnancy was actually planned."

The former Dancing with the Stars contestant's short-lived reality show, Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp, aired on Lifetime in 2012, documenting her life as a single mother raising her son, Tripp.

Palin - who gets paid thousands of dollars a year as an advocate for abstinence education - referred to her pregnancy this past Friday as "a huge disappointment," but has apparently had a change of heart.

"Everyone knows I wanted more kids. ... Things didn't go as planned, but life keeps going. Life moves on," Palin wrote. "But I do not regret this baby. This baby is not a disappointment, and I cannot wait to be a mom times two. Tripp is going to make the best big brother!!"

(In the post, Palin also clarified: "I have never been paid as an 'abstinence spokesperson.' I was employed by the great people at The Candies Foundation." The Candies Foundation is a non-profit organization that advocates for abstinence to prevent unwanted pregnancies.)

Congratulations to the Palin family on this devastating exciting news.
