“Honestly, I’ve been trying my hardest to keep my chin up on this one.”

“I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you.”

“But please respect Tripp’s and my privacy during this time. I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy.”

Since 2011, Bristol Palin has been a spokesperson for the Candies Foundation promoting teen abstinence programs. According to, Bristol makes hundreds of thousands of dollars a year advocating for abstinence among teens. Bristol was an unwed teen mother herself, giving birth to her first son Tripp in 2008 when she was 18.
