Take that giddiness down a notch: Bristol Palin says that this time, she got pregnant on purpose.
"This baby is not a disappointment, and I cannot wait to be a mom times two," Sarah Palin's 24-year-old daughter said, countering the tone of the baby-on-board announcement she made Thursday.
Bristol Palin also wanted to clear up a much-repeated detail: the much-repeated thing about her being a hypocrite who makes a quarter-million bucks a year as an abstinence spokeswoman despite not abstaining from sex herself.
"I can't tolerate all the talk on this subject. I have never been paid as an 'abstinence spokesperson.' I was employed by the great people at the Candies Foundation. ... They are a teen pregnancy prevention non-profit and I worked for them when I was 18 and 19 — when I could share first hand the challenges of being a teen mother."
Palin is already mom to son Tripp, 6½, with whom she was visibly pregnant when her mom accepted the VP nomination to the Republican presidential ticket in 2008. She and her first baby daddy, Levi Johnston, were engaged twice but never married. He's since gone on to have two kids with wife, Sunny Oglesby, one before saying "I do" and one after.
Wasilla. Go figure.
