Former Fiance Of Palin's Daughter Speaks Out

The former fiance of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's daughter says he hopes they can reconcile at some point.

Levi Johnston told ABC's "Good Morning America" on Monday that he and 18-year-old Bristol Palin ended their engagement after deciding it would be better if they separated for a while.

The two are the parents of an infant son, Tripp, born on Dec. 27. Johnston says the couple needed time to grow up before following through on marriage plans.

Says 19-year-old Johnston, "I'd like to get back together with her. I don't know what she's thinking."

Asked if they are civil when chatting, he says, "Yeah. For the most part."

As for the future, he adds, "Whatever happens, happens."

Sarah Palin announced her daughter's pregnancy days after being picked by John McCain to be his GOP vice presidential running mate.

Johnston says he sees his son "whenever I want to."



Previous Story, 3/11/2009:

The engagement is off for the teenage daughter of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and the father of her baby.

Levi Johnston told The Associated Press on Wednesday that he and
Bristol Palin mutually decided "a while ago" to end their relationship. The 19-year-old Johnston declined to elaborate.

Eighteen-year-old Bristol Palin says in a statement to the AP that she is "devastated."

The two are the parents of a boy named Tripp, who was born Dec.
27.

Sarah Palin revealed her daughter's pregnancy days after being
named John McCain's running mate on the Republican presidential
ticket.

In an interview that aired on Fox News last month, Bristol Palin said her fiance saw the baby every day and described him as a "hands-on" dad.

The two had said they were considering a summer wedding.

    I figured that they weren't going to be married. It was just a cover for Palin while she was running mate for McCain. She did not want the press to make a big deal about her daughter's pregnancy so she had then "say" they were going to get married.

    Accept not imposter substitues, we carry the best OSOC snake oil in the country. We use the finest liberal snakes and congressmen in the world. These are the most venonous snakes. They post as imposters, lie, cheat and steal if necessary for their cause. The poster from 3-16 at 4:58, get an identity and a life. You really shouldn't pick on a moderate democrat, it might come back to bite you. There is no peace when the chosen one spent more than Bush did in 8 years with 2 wars going on. Get it? Comrad.

    I take back everything I have ever posted on WITN. I am now a liberal and atheist and I love life and am no longer bitter. It feels so wonderful and I encourage all of you to become an atheist liberal. PEACE AND LOVE TO ALL

    ALEX: Your character has nothing to do with your education. OK, you have a degree, that makes you well educated. It does not have anything to do with your character. Someone can question your character, wisdom, common sense, morals and even your knowledge of some issues, just not your education

    No Obama Snake Oil Co.; maybe you and a lot of other "holy rollers" are in the wrong party. Perhaps the Republican Party's name should change from GOP to HOP (Hypocritical Old Party). HOP around on issues to make yourself and your kind look good and your foes look bad. That's priceless!

    Crystal, are you a politician? Otherwise, no one cares about your family issues. You're no celebrity. I just felt like saying that. Have a good day!

    Why is this news worthy? I suppose there was nothing else to talk about in the world? Oh, by the way, My son and his girlfriend broke up too.
