Bristol's mom Sarah Palin posted a special note on Bristol's blog, with the message, "Oh, perfect love! The best gift ever! Thank you, Bristol, for your strength and good heart and your love of life. The most important people in Bristol's life were there to witness the miracle of Sailor Grace Palin's arrival last night."
She continued, "Thank you for sharing the miracle with Piper, Marina, and me, Bri!” referring to Bristol's sister and a friend, “And we thank Todd [Palin] for taking care of the rest of the family during this most precious beginning of a great new chapter!"
Bristol and Dakota called off their engagement in May just weeks before their wedding. A month later, Bristol announced she was pregnant.
