ANCHORAGE, Alaska (TheBlaze/AP) — Bristol Palin has tied the knot with the father of her second child, according to an exclusive report from Entertainment Tonight.
Palin family attorney John Tiemessen pointed to the story, which was published online on Wednesday; it announced that Palin — the 25-year-old daughter of 2008 GOP vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin — married her former fiance, Medal of Honor winner Dakota Meyer.
"Life is full of ups and downs but in the end, you'll end up where you're supposed to be," Palin and Meyer jointly told the outlet. "We are so happy to share with loved ones the wonderful news that we got married!"
They continued, "Hard work and God's grace are the foundation of our new life together, and with the love and support of our family we know we can get through anything."
The two are reportedly on their honeymoon.
Tiemessen noted the only thing he could say was to direct a reporter to the Entertainment Tonight story, which did not say where or when the marriage occurred. He added, "When they say exclusive, they mean exclusive."
He said he will be free to talk about the matter Thursday evening.
The announcement might surprise some, considering events that were reported in the news earlier this year. For instance, in January, Meyer filed a lawsuit against Bristol Palin, seeking joint custody of their child, Sailor Grace Palin, who was born Dec. 23.
Meyer, a former marine living in Greensburg, Kentucky, was engaged to Palin, and the wedding was abruptly called off a week before it was to have been held last year.
