Sarah Palin, everyone’s favorite Alaskan hockey mom, is about to be a hockey grandma, again.

Track Palin, 22, the oldest son of the former governor and ‘First Dude’ Todd, tied the knot a few months ago in Alaska with his high school sweetheart, Britta Hanson.


Track is an Army reservist, who plans to enroll at the University of Alaska after the commercial fishing season ends. Britta, the daughter of a minister, is in nursing school.

Hanson posted a photo on her Facebook account that appears to be taken after a baby shower as she is surrounded by gifts including two different brands of diapers. Below the photo are messages of congratulations from her friends.

The notoriously salacious blog Gawker, which published the photo, quipped: ‘Britta looks to be several months along —perhaps more than two months?’

So far no official word has come from the Mama Grizzly who is no stranger to Facebook or Twitter.

Our friends at the Ministry of Gossip remind us that Track is the first of the Palin children to get married. Track’s sister Bristol beat him to parenthood, but her much publicized relationship with Levi Johnston produced Sarah and Todd’s first grandchild, Trigg, but the couple broke things off.
