Bristol Palin, the 18-year-old daughter of former Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, gave birth on Saturday to a healthy 7 lb., 7 oz., baby boy in Palmer, Alaska.

The baby’s name is Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston

Baby Tripp takes his surname from his dad, Levi Johnston, an apprentice electrician and former Wasilla High School hockey player slash high school drop-out son of mom-on-the-run. The couple have been for three years. Bristol Palin is currently residing in Wasilla and completing her high-school diploma through correspondence courses.

We are being told that Levi and Bristol are still planning to get married.

No word yet on which charities got the nearly $200,000 worth of clothing and other items.
