• Her youngest son has Down syndrome. When Palin announced to friends after 4-month-old Trig's birth in April that he had been diagnosed with Down syndrome, she wrote them a private e-mail she shares with PEOPLE: "This new person in your life can help everyone put things in perspective and bind us together, and get everyone focused on what really matters ... Those who love him will think less about self and focus less on what the world tells [us] is 'normal' or 'perfect.' "

• She has a son serving in the Army. Palin's son Track, 19, is expected to be deployed to Iraq this fall. "He's looking forward to it and we're proud of him," Palin's husband, Todd, tells PEOPLE. "He's grown up a lot in the past year." Says Palin: "I'm proud of him but I worry."

• Her husband Todd is part Eskimo. Together 20 years, Todd, also 44, and Sarah "always wanted enough [kids] for a basketball team," she says. Todd is part Yupik Eskimo and helps run a family commercial fishing operation in addition to a fulltime job as an oil company production operator. As a hobby, he races snowmobiles. He caught Sarah's eye in high school and they married in 1988. "He was the best basketball player I'd ever seen," she says.

• She's a former beauty queen. The 1987 University of Idaho graduate tells PEOPLE: "I did the beauty pageants to earn money for college." Adding in a Vogue interview, "They made us line up in bathing suits and turn our backs so the male judges could look at our butts. I couldn't believe it." The former Miss Wasilla, however, prefers basketball and hunting and fishing to bathing suit and evening gown contests. "I love the outdoors," she tells PEOPLE.

• She has a sense of style. Palin may be comfortable in a fisherman's vest or hunting fatigues, but on the job as governor she wears Kazuo Kawasaki designer glasses and black Franco Sarto boots!

I like her glasses, they don't detract from her beauty. But I think she's going to face criticism for her hair. Just saying. . .

If women over 40 don't want to take the chance of Down's Syndrome, they shouldn't try for more children. Just saying. . .
