The picture of Tripp with the long hair pulled back with a clip of some sort makes me wonder if a set of male/female fraternal twins are being presented as Tripp.
The picture from TLC was taken July 3, 2010 at Todd’s parents house in Dillingham.
Remember what else happened around that time?
The cover shot for the above article from the July 14, 2010 issue of Us Weekly would have been taken around the same time as the photo of Tripp with hair pulled back.
Here’s a side by side of Tripp cropped from the two pictures for comparison.
To me, Tripp’s face looks softer, rounder and feminine in the picture with the hair pulled back. The cheeks seem fuller. The difference is hard to explain unless fraternal twins are being used.
If twins are being used then I think it’s very doubtful that Bristol gave birth to them.
