    Bristol, who continues to live at home with her parents while finishing high school, said she enjoys motherhood. “I like being a mom. I love it. Just like seeing him smile and stuff, it’s awesome. It is very challenging, but it’s so rewarding,” she said. She said she’s had plenty of practice caring for children. “I’ve been baby-sitting my whole life,” she said. What makes it tough is “realizing I’m not living for myself right now.” Bristol’s pregnancy became national news just days after Sarah Palin was named Sen. John McCain’s Republican running mate last summer. Tripp’s father is Levi Johnston, Bristol’s classmate and a star on their high school’s hockey team. During the campaign, the governor said that Bristol and Johnston were planning a summer 2009 wedding.

    Though she says she doesn’t regret being a mom at 18, Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol said she would campaign to prevent teen pregnancies. “I don’t regret it at all,” Bristol Palin told Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren Monday night in her first interview since giving birth to her son, Tripp, on Dec. 28. “I just wish it had happened in 10 years, not now.” As governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin has been an advocate of abstinence-only s*x education in public schools. But her daughter said that expecting teens to eschew the pleasures of the flesh is “unrealistic.”
