American fashion model Angie Harmon has defended Bristol Palin’s decision to have a child out of wedlock in an interview.
Harmon, 36, who had recently been in the news for venting out her frustration at being called a “racist”, also praised the Republicans for being more understanding.
“I think one of the greatest things about the Republican Party is the understanding, we don’t point fingers and we have class,” Fox News quoted her as saying.
“Lets keep in mind here, how old is she, 17? I don’t care what anybody says, this person is still a young person and okay she's got a big situation on her hands but for anyone to sit there and make fun of her or judge her is just cruel and wrong.
“She is and in a position that any girl could be in: is this guy marrying me because he loves me and wants to be with me? To be in my life and our child''s life? This is a big deal; we''re getting married at 17! Nowadays, those don’t last.
“So if everyone could just get off her and let her live her life and do it in a way that she thinks is best, I'm all for it. I really am. She has my support 100 percent, she''s a sweetheart.
“I've got three daughters and I'm going to stand up for them and support them in whatever they want to do,” she added.
