Veep hopeful Sarah Palin has announced that her 17-year-old daughter Bristol is five months pregnant.
Palin released a statement confirming Bristol is planning on keeping her baby and tying the knot with the child's father. "Our beautiful daughter Bristol came to us with news that as parents we knew would make her grow up faster than we had ever planned," stated Palin. "As Bristol faces the responsibilities of adulthood, she knows she has our unconditional love and support."
The camp of GOP hopeful John McCain stated that they were aware of Palin's daughter's pregnancy, and that it didn't affect McCain's decision to have the Alaska governor as his running mate.
