Tripp Johnston: Bristol Palin's New Son!

STOP TRIPPIN’

Bristol Palin, the 18-year-old daughter of former Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, gave birth to son Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston on Sunday in Palmer, Alaska.

“We think it’s wonderful,” Colleen Jones, the sister of Bristol‘s grandmother Sally Heath, told People. “The baby is fine and Bristol is doing well. Everyone is excited.”

The baby’s father, Levi Johnston is studying to be an electrician and has been dating Bristol for three years. The couple will reportedly tie the knot this summer, but the in meantime, Levi has Bristol tattooed on his finger.

Bristol is taking correspondence courses to obtain her high school diploma.

Congrats to the happy couple!

    isnt her brothers name tripp? or maybe not.

    no wait its trigg right?

  • Me!

    Hey, wazz up with those crazy names in that family?

  • Kelly

    her older brothers name is track and her younger brothers name is trig………..i think?

  • ewww

    what’s with the goofy names? Well, it’s better than nasty Bronx Mowgli

  • Sarah May

    Yeah, her bro’s name is Trig. Whats up with the weird names. I mean I think this one ties Bronx Mowgli. If this kid ever moves to an urban area like LA, that boy is gonna have jokes on him 24.7. First the celebrities with weird names, now political people’s kids. Let’s go back to the 1950′s please!

  • Kip

    I don’t think it’s a political people thing. I think it’s a Palin thing.

  • ri23

    Nobody cares.

  • mike

    lol

  • lolita

    How fitting. Tripp was born to a Tramp! Ain’t that a trip…..

  • Elena

    Slut. What an un-classy family. All of them.

  • sarah

    lmao lolita

    tripp is such a stupid name, stupid name for a future stupid drug addict, i bet he’ll kill himself before age sixteen

  • Suzy

    Congrats I hope the whole thing goes well, it is always hard no matter how you go about it. Of course if Obama’s daughters ever get pregnant at a young age, I guess she will get an abortion, It is nice to know that their are some people left in this world that put babies above animals. Unlike all the lefty liberals that think it’s more important to save chickens than humans. Too bad that is what we are going to have in office. Instead of a woman who understands the importance of life.

  • brie2009

    I hate to sound soo mean but I cracked up when I hear the name. I mean its just funny to me that Sarah gave out weird names to her kids ( Trigg, Track, Bristol, Piper, and Willow) and now her daughter Bristol is picking up that weird name thing from her mom!

    But congrats for the baby anyways and that the baby is healthy. But Tripp is a better name than Bronx Mowgli Wentz (BMW!)

  • Mimi

    what a dumbass name

  • dani

    Suzy @ 12/29/2008 at 7:05 pm

    Generalize much? Of course McCain, who cheated on his first wife who was disabled and cheated on Cindy could have been elected. Then we could have had Palin as the VP–a woman who lies, uses her connection to get her family perks, steals clothes, excuses her daughter’s pregnancy even tho she preaches abstinence. Gee–are all republicans like this?

  • anon

    Good one dani. I agree. this Palin family lacks all kinds of class and smarts..and let’s hope the father of the baby tells his druggie mother to stay away from the newborn.

  • lakers fan in boston

    whats up with this family and the guys having the beginning of their names start with “t”
    trig,track, todd, and no tripp

    i swear they r fucking retards

  • Sheri

    Wow … that’s a lot of weird “Ts” in their family chain (Track, Trig and now Tripp). Don’t like it at all ~ but I love Bristol’s name. I think her name is very feminine and pretty (she was named after Bristol Bay, Alaska where I used to live). Anyway, God bless this young couple and their new baby.

  • * VICTORIA *

    LOL, ” DANI “…….A college friend of my son’s live in Alaska, near the Palin’s…….He says there are ” lots of odd names in that town “……Like they are trying to ” out-do each other with weirdness “…….He stated old Levi had NO intention to getting engaged to Bristol ( according to his friends and hers ), until Sarah was thrown in the public limelight……They practically begged him, and offered him some ” perks “, to go along with the ” engagement plan “…….( according to the locals )….He does NOT know how much of this true or not, but it makes for an interesting storyline……

  • sarah

    Umm Dani…..What in the hell does that have to do with killing babies. I don’t know about your morals or values but as far as the political thing goes it all stops with whoever it is that is peachy keen with killing infants. I don’t care what the hell Obabma promises everybody, if you are ok with killing the most innocent of life then you have got something wrong with you! And I HOPE all Republicans do feel that way. If they do then I guess the human race has a chance at sustaining since all you Dems. feel chickens have more right to life than we do. IDIOTS!!!!!

  • Jill

    Wow, Republican family values at work. Two high school dropouts have an out of wedlock baby while Grandma gets busted for cooking meth.

  • birth control is overrated

    Glad to see that whole abstinence thing worked out so well for them. Smart move Sara Palin! Sex education and birth control is for SINNERS.

  • Alice

    Stop judging, people makes mistakes. Sarah Palin didn’t get pregnant, her daughter did. I have a brother messed up on drugs, and I’ve never even tried drugs. You’re all such hypocrites.

    And might I also point out Jared how ridiculous I think it is that you completely ripped Sarah Palin during the election, and now you say “Congrats to the happy couple!”

    Hypocrites. All of you.

  • Mr. Blonde

    How are Piper and Willow and Tripp weird, #13?

    It’s not a baby, #21.

  • Nanea

    Tripp is very fitting as a name, seeing that Grandma Johnston already has a drug problem.

    But how can one study to be an electrician? Will Levi get a BA or MA degree for being an apprentice? More delusion from Camp Palin, looks like it. Of course it sounds classier than saying – sorry, dropped out of high school, no college for him.

  • yoyo

    OBAMA WON!

  • mel

    Congrats to the happy couple??? Happy couple? This couple is what 17, 18? I’m sorry there’s no happiness in that. I wish the baby and her family well, but this Palin and her family are terrible role models. I never want my kids to be this happy in their teenage years.

  • mccain palin 08

    true hockey fans to the core!!!! my cat’s name is Easton lol and I have 3 teammates with “Easton’s” in their families

  • mel

    Dani, Suzy and Sarah are idiots. I hate the way Republicans argument is always the leftist liberals want to kill babies. Yup Suzy and Sarah, I sit in my room thinking of how to kill babies. Please. I believe in choice. If you can’t understand that well then there’s no arguing with an idiot now is there?

  • brie2009

    Piper, Willow, and Tripp are names I have never head of. My whole family and friends think these names are weird too. But thats just my opinion.

  • Trailer Trash

    Trip, one “p” , is an upper class nickname for a child born “the third, same with “Trey”, ones calls ones son “Trip” or “Trey” if a father and grandfather of the exact same name are still living, one does NOT use these nicknames on birth certificates.

    The Family is a white trash joke.

  • sarah

    So mel you beieve in choice. I believe in choice too. I believe I get choose if have coffee or tea, what I want for lunch, what I want to do with my life, I have all sorts of choices. BUT…I don’t get to choose who dies and who doesn’t. Kind of like I don’t get to choose if you live or die. I don’t get why you idiots don’t see that. Is it just because you can’t see the baby? I can’t see it so therefore it isn’t really there, right? abortion isj ust the same as your mom deciding she doesn’t want you anymore, and killing you. So is that ok? It is absolutley crazy that people like you don’t seem to get this. It’s a baby, it’s alive, it’s murder, and murder is not a choice that we are supposed to have in our society, it is against the law!!! Here’s an idea: just google abortion and then hit images. Then after you do a little research on your so called CHOICE let me know if you feel any dfferent.

  • jenny

    YAY! Good for them. Im so happy for her. Love the name and love the family.

    It’s funny how all the libs just say how bad they are and she is for having a baby, yet we would never know about the democrats pregnancies because they choose to kill their unborn children. and with obamas plan saying that they can kill after birth, what the hell is that. Libs will treat chickens with more dignity than humans.

  • rd

    Blastocysts are not the same as infants. Read a science book instead of your manual on superstition.

  • lala

    and i thought celebrities gave their kids stupid names….
    until i read this.

    what a dumbass name!

  • rd

    If only people realize how ignorant they appear when they go on and on about “lefty liberals” killing babies. Just another bible thumper trying to lump all democrats under the same “Satan worshiping baby-killing” umbrella.
    Don’t you realize that there are just as many Republicans getting abortions as the Democrats?
    It’s also incredibly telling of one’s ignorance when one admits they support the death penalty.
    The world laughs at your hypocrisy, but you don’t care.
    Don’t you realize you would save more babies by encouraging safe sex? Then there will no unwanted babies and less abused children. This is where you should be focusing your efforts.

  • brittany

    this baby has nothing to do with abortion, so its ridiculous that there is this argument on here

  • samantha

    bristol’s name is a county in ma, and so is her sons mid name easton. these were places in england first as well. that doesnt make the names less weird, and im sure they dont know this, but w.e.

  • rd

    Google blastocyst while you’re at it.
    And then ask yourself if you belong to a group that thinks ALL birth control is a sin.
    And then ask yourself if you care more about the children who are tortured daily in abusive households or their cruel parents who never even wanted them?
    Obviously the answer to this is we care more about the abused children than the abusive parents. The follow-up solution, by the bible thumpers, is “there is always adoption”.
    But adoption is not the panacea that religious fanatics make it out to be.
    Why? Because only in a fantasy world are all unwanted children put up for adoption.
    Most abusive parents KEEP their babies in the misguided notion that having a baby will not change their lifestyle much. Go to any WalMart at 11pm and see the crappy parents who can’t be bothered to put their kids to bed at a normal heathy time.
    It’s just sad.

  • Hannah

    Like mother, like daughter. Sara was pregnant when she married Todd.

  • mel

    Oh Sarah, I’m just dumbfounded by your hypocrisy. “I do believe in choice, just not your choice of what you can and cannot do with your very own body.” LOL. My dear confused Sarah, how you can compare my mom killing me now and a FETUS conceived through rape or whatever else is beyond me. And yes you do have choices whether it is in direct correlation with life and death or not. You get to choose life or death by deciding whether you will allow or protest against the death penatly, war, euthanasia, etc. It’s not absolutely (which by the way is the proper way to spell it) crazy that I disagree with you (we are humans after all). I’ve done my research & not just through google. & I know the pros & cons to both sides. I’ve made up my mind & I’ve decided that no one is going to tell me it’s okay for the government to tell me what I can do with my body.

  • yup

    and this is news???

  • kelly

    that is so mean i mean really?
    trigg, tripp, track

    WHAT WRONG WITH SARAH AND BRISTOL

  • OOPS!

    Grandma Johnston is a drug dealer. Grandma Palin pals around with drug dealers, so she is guilty by association. (her own motto).

  • Cali

    Congratulations to Bristol and her boyfriend! Love the name she chose!

    A baby is a blessing, but it will be hard raising a child that young, I’m sure. Hope everything works out for them.

  • janloves

    God bless the Palin-Johnston Family. By the way, whay race is the baby? Hillbillie or Halfbreed?

  • janie

    I wonder if Grandma Johnston is Track Palin’s drug dealer.

  • heather

    They named him Tripp to honor the drug trip they were on when he was conceived.

  • denise

    They were trippin’ when he was conceived…bwahahahahahahaha

    Just another teenage pregnancy statistic.
