Bristol Palin Calls 3rd Birth 'a Breeze' in Sweet Post-Baby Update

Bristol Palin and family
Usually when you bring a new baby into the family, your life can get a bit chaotic for the first few weeks or months. But for this mama, quite the opposite has happened. After welcoming her third child -- daughter Atlee Bay -- earlier this month, Bristol Palin says her life has never been this "normal" and gushes about how her growing family has strengthened her marriage. 


The 26-year-old, who is married to Dakota Meyer, hasn't been shy about sharing photos of her super-cute family. In her pics (particularly the one above), she and her hubby, as well as son Tripp (whom she shares with ex Levi Johnston) and daughters Sailor and Atlee, look positively blissful.

And that's no camera trick. In her blog, the mom of three shared her joy and gratitude for all who helped make this labor and delivery as easy as possible. She writes: 

Her birth was a breeze, we had the best doctor/nurses imaginable, and Dakota did amazing!! He held my hand, took care – and encouraged me the entire time, I could not have a more supportive husband. This pregnancy has strengthen our bond and made our relationship stand even firmer on the foundation that we have proudly built up for our little family. I've been wanting to do an update on here for months but haven't had the time to sit down and even begin to gather my thoughts.

We can certainly see why she hasn't had a chance to write before now. She's got her hands full with three little ones, that's for sure!

Still, it's lovely to hear how her relationship with Meyer, whom she married last June, has evolved. Shortly before they had their daughter Sailor, their wedding was canceled. We're glad to hear these parents are on the same page and so supportive and respectful of one another now. She writes:

I feel like my life has never been this 'normal.' It’s been so wonderful and I give all the thanks to my husband.. he has shown me really what the definition of love truly is. He really is the most selfless man – and has been my rock through everything this past year.
