Bristol Palin Shares Sweet Pic With Brother Trig for World Down Syndrome Day

Bristol Palin shared some cute photos with her little brother Trig in honor of World Down Syndrome Day on Tuesday, March 21.

“Trig continues to light up our world,” the former DWTS contestant wrote on Instagram. “He IS the boss around here and continues to fill our days with so much laughter! He is stubborn and knows exactly what he wants – right this second.”

Bristol, who is expecting her third child, a baby girl, with husband Dakota Meyer this spring, added that her 8-year-old brother had the whole family “wrapped around his short chubby fingers.”

“Especially my dad who constantly stops by his school to make sure that he ate his lunch, and that his face is clean,” she wrote. “Trig is our definition of perfection and there isn’t one day that goes by without us feeling so thankful that God chose us to be his family.”

Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her husband, Todd, welcomed Trig in April 2008, after finding out during her pregnancy that she was carrying a special-needs child.

The former Alaska governor shared a video of Trig hamming it up in their living room on Facebook on Tuesday. “Our family is blessed to celebrate Down Syndrome Day today and everyday!” she wrote. “Like Todd says, ‘Had no idea he’d be king of this castle 24/7! Trig rules.’”

Earlier this month, Bristol, 26, shared the news that she and husband Meyer are expecting again. The pair are already parents of daughter Sailor, 15 months, and Bristol is also mom of son Tripp, 8, from her relationship with ex-fiance Levi Johnston
