Teen Mom OG alum Bristol Palin fell pregnant when she was only 17. The 29-year-old mom of four was apart of Teen Mom for just one year prior to her announcing her brave decision to walk away from the reality show, she shared on Instagram in April of 2019;
"Teen Mom OG wasn't a fit for me, it took away my peace.. and honestly - my peace has a price tag that no one but God can afford," the mom of three wrote. "$ doesn't impress me, I don't entertain bs, and walking away from this show allows God to rebuild me (and my little fam) in the right direction."
Bristol Palin’s 11-year-old son, Tripp made a recent trip to Alaska to visit his dad Levi, Bristol and Levi parted their ways 10 years ago, they do a wonderful job of co-parenting their son. The Teen Mom Star alum had spoken about their relationship to Us Weekly;
“We have the same common goal of what’s best for Tripp. It’s taken us a long time to get there, but we’re getting there,” Bristol said. “He’s definitely a part of it. Tripp goes back and forth to Alaska quite a bit, and Tripp will spend summers there. When Tripp has a long weekend from school, he’ll go there as well. They’ve got a good relationship, and he’s a great dad.”
It was during this trip to visit his father that gave the family one horrible scare when he spiked a fever and then being sent to the ER, undergoing every test under the sun, finally, he was diagnosed with Viral Meningitis and subsequently was hospitalized.
Bristol has not yet spoken publicly about her son’s hospitalization however a source informed the outlet that Tripp has now been discharged from the hospital and will remain with his father in Alaska for now.
According to The Sun, Levi’s wife Sunny shared an Instagram story depicting the close relationship of the father and son, captioning;
"The bond between these two,"
She later considerately updated the followers by posting;
"He was sick for days and was just getting worse, after taking him into the ER and running every test you can think of, he was diagnosed with viral meningitis."
"His dad, mom, and I and our families have been pushing him along to his recovery. He is doing much better now!"
Sunny concluded her post by saying;
"Thank you all for the prayers and well wishes. It was so scary for us all!"
"In all seriousness though - no matter what life throws your way, know that there is light at the end of every single tunnel, and the sun will always rise.
"God has a plan over all of our lives, and hitting rock bottom - like a year ago felt for me - is undoubtedly, an opportunity to be rebuilt better than before.”

Bristol has been through a lot and never gives up hope, she has come out of the divorce stronger and has moved on for the better and Bristol will get through this too and be the best supportive mom for your son Tripp
