Yesterday, Bristol Palin announced that she's pregnant for the second time.

Palin's first child, Tripp, was born in 2008. Her engagement to Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer ended a month ago.

“I know this has been, and will be, a huge disappointment to my family, to my close friends, and to many of you,” she wrote. “But please respect Tripp’s and my privacy during this time. I do not want any lectures and I do not want any sympathy.”

But let's go back to a different time. It's 2010, and Palin's teamed up with Jersey Shore's The Situation and The Candie's Foundation to make a pro-abstinence PSA. It says the word "situation" 17 times.

The organization reportedly paid her $262,500 to be its spokesperson.
