ABC News' Sheila Marikar (@SheilaYM) reports: Sarah Palin has something to celebrate – her eldest son, Track Palin, 22, just married his high-school sweetheart, Britta Hanson, 21.
"Our families couldn't be happier!" the Palins and the Hansons told People magazine in a joint statement released today. "These are two hard working, humble, active, studious young adults who grew up together. We're tickled that after two decades of friendship we proudly witnessed their marriage, knowing their new life together will be blessed."
The two wed in a “small ceremony” in Hatcher Pass, Alaska, according to the statement. The couple will have a larger wedding celebration this winter at Alaska's Alyeska Ski Resort.
Track Palin is an Army Reservist who spent a year in Iraq. According to People, he plans to study at the University of Alaska after the commercial fishing season. Hanson is a nursing student at the University of Alaska.
Track is the first of the Palin children to get married. Bristol Palin got engaged to Levi Johnston, the father of her 2-year-old son, last July, but called off the wedding less than a month later.
