New York, May 7 (ANI): Sarah Palin might be famous and rich, but her nineteen-year-old daughter, Bristol, has said that she does not rely on her parents for financial help.
In an interview with People magazine, the teen mother that she is on her own and works a full-time job to cover the costs of raising her 16-month-old son Tripp.
"My parents help out, but they're not at my disposal. I think that's a huge misconception," the New York Post quoted Bristol as saying.
Palin, the former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate, has earned millions in book and TV deals since she entered the US national stage alongside running mate John McCain in the 2008 presidential race.
However, Bristol said that her mother's fame does not ease the burden of childcare.
"I'm doing it by myself. I would say the majority of any paycheck I receive is going to Tripp. Childcare is very expensive, formula is expensive, diapers are expensive-and you don't think about that as a kid, at all," said Bristol.
However, the single mother is finally getting help from Tripp's father, Levi Johnston.
Reports suggest that the pair is enjoying a civil relationship after Johnston made child support payments on time for two months in a row. (ANI)
