Alaskan governor pregnant with fifth child

Filed under: Your Pregnancy, Work Life, In The News

Congratulations are in order for Alaska governor Sarah Palin and her husband Todd. The governor announced last week that she's due with her fifth child in mid-May. She's a 44-year-old mother to son Track (18) and daughters Bristol (17), Willow (13) and Piper (6). Husband Todd is her high school sweetheart.

Governor Palin assured the people of Alaska that her pregnancy and delivery would not interfere with her work. When her youngest daughter was born six years ago, Palin was mayor of Wasilla, Alaska. "I had Piper on a Monday and I was back to work on a Tuesday," Palin said. "I even brought her to work with me."

The Republican governor has job approval ratings in the 90s and has been mentioned as a potential vice-presidential running mate for John McCain. She's also active as a sports team mom and school volunteer, runs marathons, and is absolutely gorgeous. She competed in the Miss Alaska pageant and recently appeared on the cover of Vogue magazine.

Good luck to you, Governor Palin, but could I ask just one thing?

Stop making the rest of us look bad.
