We're well aware that Bristol Palin's heart is in the right place.

But the next time she films an anti-teen pregnancy PSA—and we hope there is a next time—she may want to try for a more compelling message than, "I'm privileged, so it's OK that I got pregnant, but you're not, so don't." (We paraphrase...but just barely.)

"What if I didn't come from a famous family?" she asks in the 30-second spot for the Candie's Foundation. "What if I didn't have all their support? What if I didn't have all these opportunities? Believe me, it wouldn't be pretty.

"Pause before you play."

The 19-year-old Palin, who last year was appointed ambassador for the foundation, appears alongside son Tripp in the campaign, which officially rolls out in print and video form this May—coinciding with National Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month.


Bristol & Co. will be happy to know that there are no teen matriarchs in our Hollywood's Hottest Moms gallery. Message received!
