Just two months after Track Palin married high school sweetheart Britta Hanson, the couple have a baby on the way.

Gawker is reporting that Hanson published a Facebook photograph of herself with an apparently pregnant stomach and surrounded by colorful gift bags and diapers. Beneath the picture, Facebook users congratulated the presumed mom-to-be. (Bristol Palin on her family: ‘I think we have some of the thickest skin’)

Track, the son of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, married Hanson in a small Alaska gathering in May.

“Our families couldn’t be happier!” the Hansons and Palins told People magazine in a joint statement about the newlyweds, who began dating in high school. “These are two hard working, humble, active, studious young adults who grew up together. We’re tickled that after two decades of friendship we proudly witnessed their marriage, knowing their new life together will be blessed.”

This would not be Sarah Palin’s first grandchild. Her 20-year-old unwed daughter Bristol gave birth late in 2008, at age 18. Bristol is now a safe-sex advocate for the Candie’s Foundation. In one abstinence public service announcement, she cautions: “Pause before you play.”
