Per Politico, she released a statement:
Besieged by blog rumors about her 17-year-old daughter, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin — named Friday as running mate of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) — released a statement Monday saying her daughter is pregnant and plans to marry the father.
The governor and her husband, Todd, said their daughter, Bristol, plans to keep the baby.
"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," the Palins said in the statement. "As Bristol faces the responsibilities of adulthood, she knows she has our unconditional love and support."
Liberal bloggers have speculated extensively about the possibility that Palin's fifth child, born this spring, was actually her daughter's.
So much for those family values and all that abstinence bullshit eh? This explains why she kept holding the baby recently methinks....
