In the Pure Gossip CategoryI thought of Crystal Gayle's song when I heard, from more than a couple people, that Bristol Palin's "fiance" has fathered another child besides Tripp. This is being whispered by a few sources... and then I listened to Bristol's very vague answers about Levi Johnston during her recent exclusive interview with Greta, available here on YouTube. "Eventually, we'd like to get married," said Bristol. It sure doesn't sound like there are any firm plans. We all thought the wedding was to take place last year, before Tripp's birth. And then the wedding was supposed to happen this summer. Could Levi's dallying around have anything to do with the hesitation?
Babies, Babies, Who Are Those Babies?The baby that Sarah Palin brought into camera range as Greta was talking to Bristol could be, finally, the missing Tripp! We didn't get to see much of him close up, but during the interview, several photographs of babies floated on the screen, interspersed with the live shots. Just to play devil's advocate, we saw no attribution for any of the photos, nor any dating for the photos. We should not assume that all the photos were of the same baby. Especially that one image of a grumpy-looking wide-nostriled baby sitting up. Just sayin'...
The Birth Date IssueSince we have no way of verifying Tripp's birth date, I spent some time looking at babies on YouTube...
Here's a baby at 4 weeks:
And here's one at 7 weeks (Tripp's age if he was born 12-27-2008):
A seven-week infant seems to have more awareness of its surroundings, and responds more affirmatively to stimulus.
The shot we had of "Tripp live" could be at four weeks, five, six or seven weeks of age. From what I've read, it is not at all uncommon to get pregnant again within 2-6 weeks of giving birth. A little fudge on Trig, a little fudge on Tripp, and you've got a creamy bowl of Mudflats #4 winner of the new Sarah Palin Ben & Jerry's flavor: "I Can See Fudge From My House!"
