Newly re-minted reality TV star Bristol Palin has vowed once again to not have sex until marriage, now understanding that being an unwed mother is “hard.” Palin sat down with InTouch magazine to talk about her son and her boyfriend, Gino Paoletti, and their mutual decision to wait until marriage.
According to the magazine, Palin did the reality show because “since I have this platform, I want to use it for good” and had nothing but glowing things to say about young Tripp, who she is very thankful for, but recognizes she was quite too young to handle the way she would now that she has matured:
So hard, in fact, that Bristol, now 21, is determined to walk down the aisle before even contemplating having another child. “Gino and I are going to wait until marriage,” she tells In Touch of her pipeline worker boyfriend, Giacinto “Gino” Paoletti, also 21. “I’m doing what’s best for me. It’s between me and God, and I know it’s right.”
“My sister Willow is 17, and when I was her age, I was eight months pregnant, and I look at her and I think, ‘Holy cow, I was just a baby!’ ” Bristol reflects to In Touch. “I don’t care what your background is — it’s so hard.”
