In late-August 2019, Todd Palin filed for divorce from wife of three decades, Sarah Palin. The news didn’t hit the mainstream US media until a week later.
Per the leaked court documents, Todd reasoned “incompatibility of temperament” behind his decision to seek divorce.
In addition to seeking joint custody of their son Trig (b. 2008), Todd wanted a fair distribution of assets between him and now-estranged wife Sarah.
Kids, Wife, Married
The same month that Tood filed for divorce from Sarah also marked the duo’s 31st wedding anniversary.
Married in 1988, Tood and estranged wife are parents to five kids: Track, Willow, Piper and Bristol. Of all children, Bristol is perhaps the most recognized — the Teen Mom alumn became a household name after being pregnant at age 17.
To those unfamiliar, Sarah rose to national stardom as a quirky governor of Alaska. Her short-lived vice-presidential candidacy in 2008 brought her further notoriety.
