Gov. Sarah Palin is a Grandmama--That's a Tripp!
Shhhhh--Don't tell anyone but, Governor Sarah Palin is a young "GG"(that's Gorgeous Granny).
I just heard the news: Bristol Palin, the unmarried 18-year-old daughter of former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has given birth in Alaska to a son.
Even though People magazine reports that Bristol Palin gave birth to Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston on Sunday, you shouldn't go around telling people because according to the governor's office "this birth is a private family matter."
Little Tripp weighed 7 pounds, 4 ounces. The father is high school dropout Levi Johnston, a former hockey player at Alaska's Wasilla High School. He has said he and Bristol plan to marry--perhaps when one of them becomes a high school graduate?
As the grandmother of six--soon to be seven grandchildren I understand Governor Palin's excitement over the prospect of becoming a young "GG." But Governor, with all due respect--you did announce Bristol's pregnancy to the world. At that point it was no longer private. Now that the inevitable has happened--the birth, and now you want this matter private? Even after People Magazine and Yahoo wrote about it? What's the point of achieving celebrity status if little things like the Governor becoming a grandmama shouldn't be news?
