Bristol Palin has got a new face just in time for her new reality show!
The former Dancing With The Stars contestant has admitted to getting corrective jaw surgery while dismissing that it was plastic surgery purely for vanity reasons.
And Bristol, 20, — who will star alongside her son Tripp, 2, on a new reality show on the Bio Channel later this year – is thrilled with her new look.
She told US Weekly: “It’s not plastic surgery. I had corrective jaw surgery back in December, 2010.
“It improved the way I look, but this surgery was necessary for medical reasons, so my jaw and teeth could properly realign. I don’t obsess over my face.
“I’m absolutely thrilled with the results. I look older, more mature and don’t have as much of a chubby little baby face!”
In her yet untitled reality show, viewers will watch the single mom move from Alaska to Los Angeles with her young son to work at a charity.
Bristol will live with her former Dancing With The Stars rival Kyle Massey, who became a friend on the show, and his brother Christopher.
It’s a busy time for Sarah Palin’s eldest daughter; in March she signed a book deal about her life in Alaska in the media spotlight surrounding her famous mom’s 2008 Republican vice-presidential campaign.
Bristol, then a teenager, caused headlines around the world when it was revealed that she was expecting a baby with former fiancé Levi Johnston during the campaign.
