Sarah Palin and her daughter Bristol, 19, are shown in matching jeans, carrying their babies in this week's issue of In Touch. With a cover headline of "We're Glad We Chose Life," the two women are interviewed in their Wasilla, Alaska home about their parenting styles and how Bristol's unplanned pregnancy brought the two of them closer together. While Bristol refers to her son Tripp as the "love of my life," she also addresses the emotional and physical hardships of single-parenting: [Sarah Palin] lets Bristol learn and make mistakes on her own, and it's understood that Bristol will support Tripp financially as much as possible — which means buying her own diapers and formula."There's no mistaking that Tripp is her baby, and she is in charge," Sarah explains. "this whole experience has made her grow up so quickly , but she has taken total responsibility and never gripes about it.""I couldn't ask for a better baby," [Bristol] insists. "But the reality is I'm 19 years old and I have a 1-year-old. I wish I could be in my 20s with a baby and not be in my 20s. Just having him so young — I have to work, and I have to provide for him, because I'm a single mom." What do you think? Share your thoughts.[In Touch via Jezebel]Related stories:
