Bristol Palin is pregnant with her second child. She revealed the news on her blog today — a little earlier than she wanted to — in an extremely candid post.

"Honestly, I’ve been trying my hardest to keep my chin up on this one," Palin wrote. "When life gets tough, there is no other option but to get tougher. 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."

Tripp is Palin's first son with ex-fiancé Levi Johnston. Palin announced that she was pregnant with Tripp during her mother Sarah Palin's vice presidential run in 2008. Bristol Palin was recently engaged to Dakota Meyer, but the two called off their wedding in May.

Palin ended the post announcing her pregnancy by saying that her family would always come first and thanking God. (Patheos)
