Reality star Bristol Palin, 24, is pregnant with her second child!

The news comes less than a month after Bristol and boyfriend Dakota Meyer called off their Kentucky wedding.

The daughter of politician Sarah Palin announced her pregnancy on her Patheos Faith and Family Channel blog telling fans, “I wanted you guys to be the first to know that I am pregnant.”

Bristol, the mother of son Tripp, 6, with ex Levi Johnston, continued, “At the end of the day there’s nothing I can’t do with God by my side, and I know I am fully capable of handling anything that is put in front of me with dignity and grace. Life moves on no matter what. So no matter how you feel, you get up, get dressed, show up, and never give up.”

Palin recognized that the news could be “a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you,” but insisted, “I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy.”

“My little family always has, and always will come first,” she said. “Tripp, this new baby, and I will all be fine, because God is merciful.”

Bristol has not announced whether or not Meyer is the father.

Last month, as news broke that Bristol and Dakota's wedding was off, Palin told "Extra" that her daughter is "very grounded, very practical in terms of making a lifelong commitment, she knows that hey, everything’s got to be worked out before you actually make that commitment.”

Palin continued in her imitable style, "She posted something today, like, ‘Let god work everything out so that everything works together instead of maybe in the future everything falling apart,’ so that kind of speaks to her character and her heart, knowing that questions have to be answered, issues have to be worked out before you actually say I do, and I will be there with you for the rest of our lives... so that, just kind of alluding to some of challenges.”
