Bristol Palin, 18, daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, has given birth to a son named Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston on Sunday.
According to People magazine, the baby weighed 7 pounds, 4 ounces.
The governor’s office did not release information on the birth stating it was a private, family matter. John McCain also would not discuss the birth.
Bristol Palin came into the spotlight when her mother announced that the unwed teen was pregnant on the first day of the Republican National Convention. The campaign then issued a statement saying that Bristol and the father of the baby would get married. It was later revealed that the father was Levi Johnston by his mother. Johnston was with the family when Palin accepted the vice presidential nomination.
Johnston has since dropped out of high school in order to support Bristol and the baby.
