To much of America’s surprise, Bristol Palin and her once ex-fiance, Dakota Meyer, went through with their celebrity wedding on June 8! The celebrity couple broke up a year ago, but began seeing each other again in April of this year. According to UsMagazine.com, Meyer subtly announced their marriage on Facebook with a captioned photo that stated, “On the other hand, we learn that we can never give up, knowing that with the right tools and energy, we can reverse any decree or karma. So, which is it? Let the Light decide, or never give up? The answer is: both.” Palin and Meyer’s apparent reconciliation is great news for their 5-month-old celebrity baby, Sailor Grace! Hopefully Palin’s 7-year-old son Tripp is also happy over his mother’s nuptials.
