Consider the source but Levi Johnston, ex-boyfriend of Bristol Palin claims the teen’s pregnancy was no accident.
According to the Associated Press, who got their hands on a copy of Johnston’s new memoir titled Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs, Johnston reports that Bristol was jealous of her mother’s pregnancy:
Johnston says when Bristol found out her mother, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, was expecting a baby she responded she should be having a baby, not her mother. He says she told him in March 2008, “let’s get pregnant.”
Johnston claims Sarah Palin initially wanted to adopt Bristol’s baby to “avoid a scandal” but he and Bristol wouldn’t allow it. Tripp Johnston was born in December 2008.
According to the AP Johnston also says he and Sarah Palin were present for the birth but she later said he wasn’t there. He also says she refused to be called grandma and wanted her first grandsom to call her “Mommy Sarah”.
Like I said, consider the source. But Johnston’s claims raise an interesting issue. Is it weird for moms and daughters to be pregnant at the same time? If you were in high school and your mom got pregnant, would it make you uncomfortable? Does Bristol have a point? I suppose it all depends on the ages of everyone involved. If my mom was 55 and got knocked up while I was a senior, I might feel a little weird. Levi claims Bristol was jealous of her mom’s pregnancy, so is it wrong for a mother with a teen daughter to pregnant – could that really ignite jealousy or competition or is Bristol just an idiot?
