Sarah Palin reportedly has another grandchild on the horizon. The former Alaska governor's eldest son Track's recent bride, the erstwhile Britta Hanson, is pregnant with the couple's first baby, according to the gossip website Gawker.
When the two were married earlier this year on a ski slope in Alaska, the Fox News commentator told People Magazine "our families couldn't be happier" in a joint statement with Hanson's parents.
"These are two hard working, humble, active, studious young adults who grew up together. We're tickled that after two decades of friendship we proudly witnessed their marriage, knowing their new life together will be blessed," the statement said.
The couple's wedding was reported in May, though the date of the wedding was not made clear. It is also not clear when the baby is due.
Gawker cited a picture of pregnant-looking Britta, posted on a friend's Facebook page, as its confirmation of her new maternal status.
Track, 22, and Britta, 21, had been dating since high school. Army reservist Track was deployed to Iraq during the 2008 campaign and Britta is reportedly a nursing student at the University of Alaska.
