Sarah Palin's eldest son, Track and his new wife Britta Hanson are having a baby. A Wasilla, Alaska, friend's Facebook page revealed the happy news by posting photos of expectant Hanson surrounded by baby gifts – it was tagged with numerous congratulations.
Track, a 22-year-old Army Reservist who plans to study at the University of Alaska after the commercial fishing season, married his high school sweetheart in a small ceremony in Hatcher Pass, Alaska, in May.
Hanson, 21, is a nursing student at the University of Alaska.
The Palins did not respond immediately to request for comment.
