Tripp is reportedly earning his mamma Bristol $300,000 for first-look photos. The photos will appear in an upcoming issue of People Magazine. According to reports, the money went up once the other Grandma, Bristol's fiance Levi Johnston's mother, was arrested on drug-related charges. I can't vouch for the accuracy of that, but, hey, at least Tripp has some money for a college fund. Of course, his parents aren't even in college yet so maybe the money will go toward getting them an education? (At this point, Bristol is working on getting through high school and daddy Levi is set to be an electrician's apprentice.)
Apparently Sarah Palin had hoped her daughter would tie the knot with Johnston before the birth of their son, but sometimes timing isn't everything, is it? I'm not at all surprised that we're seeing photos of the baby or that they were sold for cash. Like so many other celebrity parents these days, Palin the elder used her kids to stay firmly planted in the spotlight. I'm happy for Bristol and Levi, and for Sarah to have a grandson, but I hope they're able to let him lead a somewhat normal life after all this. After all, he is just a little baby!
