Does Bristol Palin live in the Austin area? An investigation

Bristol Meyer — neé Palin, daughter of former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin — might be your neighbor, and you don’t even know it. According to tabloid the Daily Mail, the former “Dancing With the Stars” contestant has been living in a suburb of Austin for the past few weeks. 

For the past couple of weeks, the 26-year-old has been living in a suburb of Austin, Texas, with her husband Dakota Meyer, their one-year-old daughter Sailor Grace, and her eight-year-old son Tripp, her only child with her ex-fiance Levi Johnston. 

Now, those Brits are not always the most trustworthy gossip hounds. Sure enough, their report does not provide proof of Meyer’s residence. We did a little digging through the political daughter’s Instagram account, and she has posted more than a few family snapshots that look a little warmer than Alaska. Not much in the way of location tagging, though.

The Instagram account of her husband, Dakota Meyer, provides a few more tangible clues. Meyer, a decorated Marine veteran, has lived in Austin in the past. His social media footprint points to plenty of recent activity in the capital of Texas.

So not much to go on. But if you see Bristol Palin out and about, don’t say you never got a heads up.
