Bristol Palin Gives Birth To Baby Boy

Sarah Palin has a grandson. Bristol Palin, Sarah Palin's daughter, gave birth to a 7lb 4 oz. baby boy on Sunday December 28th in Palmer, Alaska. His name is Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston. According to People magazine they were given the lead from Colleen Jones, Aunt of Sarah Palin. Both mom and baby are healthy and doing fine.

Bristol Palin, at age 18, gave the world a bit of controversy during the 2008 Presidential Race. Her mother Sarah Palin announced her daughter's pregnancy during a campaign event after she was named as John McCain's running mate and would hold office of Vice President if elected.

The controversy ensued because Bristol Palin's pregnancy came at such a young age, she was unmarried and her mother was running for a high elected office of the United States of America. Sarah Palin's stances on birth control, abortion and safe sex practices came under fire with the announcement of Bristol's pregnancy.

No matter what Sarah Palin's politics were Bristol decided to do her own thing. She also stated that she plans to marry Levi Johnston, the baby's father, some time in the future. Levi Johnston is a former hockey player for Wasilla High School in Alaska.

Although Sarah Palin did not get elected as Vice President of the United States she retains her role in Alaska as Governor. Speculation has been going on that she may run for President in 2012 but those rumors are unfounded as Palin told CNN "Right now I cannot even imagine running for national office in 2012."

The birth of Bristol Palin's baby boy will give Governor Sarah Palin a new role in life, that of Grandma. For many that is an honored position to hold, more honored than that of President or Vice President. Not only will she be mom to Bristol and her other 4 children Track, Trigg, Willow and Piper but also the doting grandma to baby Tripp.

It seems unusual name choices are picked in the Palin family but they are no weirder than some of the names that have topped the baby name lists of past years. Those names include Lian, Shen, Trucker, Dresden, Alegria, Maybelee, and X, Zyretion (A name with a comma in it!).

The Governors office reported that the birth of baby Tripp was a private family matter and refused to give comment to Reuters.
