Bristol Palin, Levi Johnston engaged again
It's official, at least according to Us Weekly magazine: Bristol Palin, who was pregnant during her mother's vice presidential campaign, and Levi Johnston, the father of her child, have announced in a cover story that they are engaged to be married again. The pair were engaged before but parted ways. Then Johnston sowed some wild oats (including posing for Playgirl magazine) and Palin did a guest shot on The Secret Life of an American Teenager. But in deciding on custody of their son, 18-month-old Tripp, the two got cozy again and are now engaged. As you can see from the quote on the cover, Bristol is hoping that her mom will be okay with all of this.
So what does the elder Palin have to say?
Now, we Mommas know what Sarah Palin is probably thinking: Run Bristol, run! But for the record, Palin and her husband Todd said in a statement to the Today show that they want what's best for their children and that Bristol believes in "redemption and forgiveness." And that is true, we do want what's best for our kids, even when we don't agree with the choices they make. But we Mommas know that even when they do something that we think is really stupid, we're there for them.
