See Bristol Palin's Growing Baby Bump in New Selfie
Bristol Palin announced her pregnancy in June
Bristol Palin‘s baby bump is making its big debut!
Sarah Palin‘s daughter took to Instagram last week to post a photo of herself in the dermatology office where she works as a medical assistant, giving fans the first glimpse of her tiny – but growing – pregnant belly.
Palin, wearing a black jacket and white top, is shown pursing her lips and holding up her cell phone in the photo, which she captioned: “Celebrated six years working for the best people I know .. This place is my home (I actually have a job #shocker).”
Palin announced on June 25 that she was pregnant with her second child.
“I’ve been trying my hardest to keep my chin up on this one. I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family,” she wrote in a blog post on the religious website Patheos. “But please respect Tripp’s and my privacy during this time. I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy.”
Palin, 24, who has yet to reveal the identity of the child’s father, was set to marry ex-fianc Dakota Meyer, a former U.S. Marine, on May 23. However, her mother announced just days before the wedding that the couple had called off their two-month-long engagement.
Palin fired back at critics of her second out-of-wedlock pregnancy in another blog post, writing, “This pregnancy was actually planned. Everyone knows I wanted more kids, to have a bigger family. Believing I was heading that way, I got ahead of myself. Things didn’t go as planned, but life keeps going. Life moves on.”
Palin is already mom to Tripp, 6, her son with ex-fiancé Levi Johnston.
