Bristol Palin, Sarah Palin's Daughter, Pregnant At 17

Bristol Palin, the 17-year-old daughter of John McCain's running mate Sarah Palin, is pregnant.

In a statement released Monday, Palin said that her daughter is five months pregnant and that Bristol plans to keep her baby and marry the child's father.

"Our beautiful daughter Bristol came to us with news that as parents we knew would make her grow up faster than we had ever planned. We're proud of Bristol's decision to have her baby and even prouder to become grandparents," said Palin.

"Bristol and the young man she will marry are going to realize very quickly the difficulties of raising a child, which is why they will have the love and support of our entire family."

The announcement was made, in part, to rebuff rumours that Bristol was the real mother of Sarah Palin's infant son, who was born in May. The Palins say that's not true -- but she is pregnant now.

The Bristol Palin pregnancy disclosure has also reopened the question of how much presidential candidate John McCain really knew about Palin before selecting her as his running mate, a move that surprised the political world last Friday.

At the very least it's added yet another wrinkle to the presidential race.
