Dancing with the Stars alum, Bristol Palin was looking white hot at the Candie’s Foundation 2011 benefit gala on Tuesday (May 3), flaunting a new figure and ‘do to match.
But what the 20-year-old abstinence ambassador was more interested in showing off was her son, Tripp‘s latest accomplishments.
“He’s talking and running around,” the proud mama said of her 2-year-old tot. “Right now he’s taking skating lessons, so that’s something fun that we get to go to. I love everything about him!”
While she’s enjoying motherhood, Bristol tells Us she’d prefer that her situation were a little different.
“There are a lot of things that I love about being a mom, but you know what? Being a teen mom is not ideal at all and I wish that I could have had Tripp when I was in a married relationship,” says Palin.
A staunch supporter of abstinence and teen pregnancy prevention, Bristol plans to share her ideals with her son, being completely candid about how difficult it was for her to raise him at such a young age.
“I’m going to let Tripp know how hard it was for me to be a teen parent and how not ideal it is,” she tells the magazine. “I know that he’ll learn.”
