Former reality TV star Bristol Palin welcomed her second child, daughter Sailor Grace, on Christmas Eve. Palin made the announcement on her blog at Patheos, saying “Our family couldn’t be more complete.”
The baby’s father, Palin’s ex-fiancé Dakota Meyer, also posted pictures of Sailor Grace to his social media accounts, calling her the “Best Christmas present ever!!” and saying “I couldn’t be more proud of this little blessing.”
The conservative Palin has take a lot of heat online by having a second child out of wedlock (her son was born during her mom’s Vice Presidential run in 2008 when Bristol was still a teen) but she has owned up to her mistakes and has held her head high as she moves forward with life. Her mother, who was criticized for saying she was happy about the child regardless of the circumstances of its conception, also wrote a sweet note to Bristol, saying,
Oh, perfect love! The best gift ever!
Thank you, Bristol, for your strength and good heart and your love of life. The most important people in Bristol’s life were there to witness the miracle of Sailor Grace Palin’s arrival last night.
Thank you for sharing the miracle with Piper, Marina, and me, Bri! And we thank Todd for taking care of the rest of the family during this most precious beginning of a great new chapter!
Congrats and best wishes to the family! I certainly love the little girl’s name and I hope for a lifetime of happiness and God’s love for her.
