After passing the last few months of her pregnancy under public scrutiny, Bristol Palin, the 18-year-old daughter of former vice presidential candidate and current Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, gave birth to a boy on Saturday and named him Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston.

Bristol Palin, 18, gave birth to Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston on Saturday, People magazine reported online. He weighed 7 pounds, 4 ounces. Colleen Jones, the sister of Bristol’s grandmother, told the magazine that “the baby is fine and Bristol is doing well.”
The governor’s office said it would not release information because it considers the baby’s birth a private, family matter. Palin family members, hospital employees and spokespeople for the governor’s former running mate, John McCain, either would not confirm the birth or did not return messages from The Associated Press.
The father is Levi Johnston, a former hockey player at Alaska’s Wasilla High School.
