Bristol Palin and husband Dakota Meyer’s relationship has been a bit of a whirlwind over the past two years.
In 2015, Palin and Meyer broke off their first engagement. Several months later, Palin learned she was pregnant with Meyer’s child. Following the birth of Sailor Grace Meyer in December 2015, a bitter custody battle ensued.
Then, somewhere between giving birth to Sailor Grace and coming to a custody agreement in March 2016, Palin and Meyer fell in love again.
The pair secretly got married on May 25, 2016.
Palin and Meyer released this joint statement after their nuptials:
“Life is full of ups and downs but in the end, you’ll end up where you’re supposed to be. We are so happy to share with loved ones the wonderful news that we got married!”
Soon after, the Meyer family made another announcement — Tripp, Palin’s first son from a previous relationship, and Sailor Grace were getting another sibling:
Palin gave birth to her third child on May 8:
The Meyer family welcomed a beautiful little girl named Atlee Bay, making Dakota and Tripp outnumbered by one.
The proud father also shared the photo to his own Instagram account with a caption that read:
“Meet Atlee Bay!!! The newest edition of the Meyer family!! @bsmp2 #dadlife #ownthedash”
Palin’s mother, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, got in on the action, congratulating her daughter and son-in-law by sharing a message with the Daily Mail that said:
“What a happy story! What a happy day! Babies are the best ingredient in our world, and we’re blessed to help welcome Atlee Bay to it. The whole family couldn’t be more thrilled!”
The thrilled parents have yet to release an official statement after welcoming their daughter, but it seems as though mom and baby are doing just fine.
