It's official: Bristol Palin is finally legal. The political daughter, abstinence advocate and soon-to-be reality TV star celebrates her 21st birthday on October 18th.
Bristol Palin has made headlines often during the last several years. First, she was known as Sarah Palin's pregnant 17-year-old daughter. Following the birth of her son, Tripp, Palin began making the rounds as an advocate for abstinence education. Speaking on Good Morning America in 2009, she said, "Regardless of what I did personally, abstinence is the only 100% foolproof way you can prevent pregnancy." In June, she took that message to the written page, publishing a memoir entitled Not Afraid of Life.
Although Palin has continued spreading the message on abstinence, her more recent endeavors have put her in the celebrity spotlight. Last year, she made it almost to the top on Dancing With The Stars. Apparently, she really likes reality shows, because she signed on to do a reality show on the Biography Channel. To finish her transformation into reality star, Palin got a whole new look in May, although she is adamant that the corrective jaw surgery was "necessary for medical reasons."
Whether or not you agree with her message on abstinence or her decision to become a reality star, you do have to admit that Bristol Palin has turned into a beautiful woman. Hopefully, her 21st birthday will be full of friends, family and fun.
