Governor Sarah Palin, daughter & grandchild in an exclusive interview. * * * * * [FEB 16 2009]

Bristol Palin described to Fox's Greta Van Susteren the moment when she, her boyfriend, Levi Johnston, and another friend told her parents that she was pregnant. She described that moment as "harder than labor."

But this was not the only surprise Bristol Palin said she had for her mother, Alaska's youngest governor. She told Van Susteren she had only told her mother she was doing this national television interview - in which Van Susteren and crew flew to Alaska - one day prior to the taping.

Nevertheless, Governor Palin appeared at the interview, with baby Tripp in tow.

Palin, who backed an abstinence-only sex education program when she ran for governor in 2006, told Van Susteren to expect abstinence from all teenagers was "not realistic."

"Get beyond the ideal of abstinence," the 44 year old, new grandmother said. "Hey, life happens."

"Not the most ideal situation, certainly you make the most of it," said the governor.

Bristol Palin said she is getting help from many members of her family with raising the infant while continuing her studies. She told Van Susteren she has no immediate plans to marry Levi Johnson, who she described as a 'hands on Dad." Last year, there were reports that the couple would marry in the coming year.

"Eventually we'd like to get married," the young mother said. "We're focusing on getting through school though, getting a career going."
