Congratulations are in order for new mama Bristol Palin.

The Alaska native and daughter of former Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin, welcomed daughter Sailor Grace on Wednesday, just two days before Christmas.

Palin, 25, took to Instagram on Thursday to share the news with a sweet snap of herself and her bundle of joy in the hospital.

“My sweet Sailor Grace was born yesterday, our family couldn’t be more complete,” she captioned the photo, adding a double heart emoji.

Baby Sailor’s arrival officially makes Palin a mother of two. She welcomed her first child, son Tripp, in 2008 with then boyfriend Levi Johnston.

The unmarried mother announced her second pregnancy in June in a blog post on the religious website Patheos, explaining that she understood fans might be disappointed in her.

“I wanted you guys to be the first to know that I am pregnant,” she said. “Honestly, I’ve been trying my hardest to keep my chin up on this one.”

In a second post on her own blog, she clarified that her family would be her number one priority.

“My little family always has, and always will come first,” she said. “Tripp, this new baby, and I will all be fine, because God is merciful.”

In October, she took to Instagram to announce she was expecting a girl [DASH] who we eventually learned would share the same name as Kristen Cavallari’s new baby — and has continued to be open about her pregnancy, sharing multiple photos on social media.
