Bristol Palin: Engaged to Levi Johnston!

Bristol Palin: Engaged to Levi Johnston!

Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston are back on – in a big way!

The 19-year-old daughter of Sarah Palin and her 20-year-old beau told Us Weekly exclusively about their plans to get married – and revealed that even Sarah didn’t know about the engagement until now!

“It felt right, even though we don’t have the approval of our parents,” Bristol said. “It is intimidating and scary just to think about what her reaction is going to be. Hopefully she will jump on board.”

Levi apologized last week for “youthful indiscretion” after breaking up with Bristol last year.

Bristol and Levi were previously engaged but broke it off just after son Tripp was born in December of 2008.

UPDATE: Sarah issued a statement to NBC News, saying, “Bristol at 19 is now a young adult. We obviously want what’s best for our children. Bristol believes in redemption and forgiveness to a degree most of us struggle to put in practice in our daily lives.”

Bristol told People, “With [my mother], [Levi's] actions will have to speak louder than words. And he’ll have to get his education and a job and be willing to support Tripp the right way. And then I think she’ll come around.”

  • justsayno

    for real???!!!!!

    these two have been bad mouthing each other over the web for ages
    and now they’re engaged???!!!! WTF

    for once I’m going to agree with Sarah and say NO WAY!!!!!

  • jilly

    Baby is cute but why is she looking like a 40 year old?

  • BEAN

    Wtf didn’t they hate each other like 5 minutes ago? So because he apologised for lying everything is good? If he was lying for money that tells you what type of character he is, so why would you want a relationship with that?

    Some girls are honestly so foolish. We need a generation of stronger women. This is a joke. I hope it’s not true.

  • dani

    They deserve each other.

  • http://www.TheInfamousLife.com miss infamous

    Two idiots deserve each other!

  • amy

    that poor child, born into a family full of idiots

  • mailey

    in theory it’s nice to have a family for their son. but there can’t be a solid foundation for this with them having trashed each other so much before.

    if they disrespected each other to that degree before, then i don’t see how this could work in the long run. the first big fight they have, they’re going to hit the media again. really sad.

  • cm

    my question is… is anyone of them a real blond? cause the baby is blond.

  • jessica

    their son got his grandpa’s blue eyes. the parents have hazel eyes.

  • kelly

    @jessica:
    the parents don’t have to be blond for their children to be blond.
    eye, skin, and hair color are complex traits determined by a complex interaction of multiple genes.
    bristol and levi are carriers for blond hair and blue eyes inherited from their parents, grandparents and beyond that can manifest themselves in their children.

  • annie

    @cm:

    and the baby has blue eyes like bright blue eyes neither parent has blue eyes. that’s not his kid lol.

  • claire

    yes, both my parents have brown eyes and i have green eyes. my grandmother has green eyes. my mom is a carrier for green eyes so i got it.

  • w11

    Clearly this is because he got to Hollywood and realized no one cared about him. I bet her mother is behind this. Pretty sure she’s gearing up to run for the presidency, can’t have that idiot out there selling stores. She probably paid him off, and lord knows he needed the money with his IQ and lack of education. That poor baby.

  • therese

    wow, american school system sucks.

    u people dont even understand simple genetics.

  • eyeh8twilight

    You know, in the past there’s been bad stories about him. He’s not paying child support, he only cares about fame… I don’t believe that at all. He’s taking care of his child when he has to, I think he’s alright. I mean, he’s 20 or 21 now, right? What 21 year old knows how to take care of a child? I like Levi. I might get his playgirl…

    Sarah Palin put out that bad crap about him. She doesn’t like him ONLY because he knocked up her daughter. I’m rooting for Levi, stick by the kid and you’ll be alright. Ever since he was on My Life on the D-List, I’ve had a change of heart. Doing publicity with Kathy Griffin was a VERY smart move.

  • melissa

    @eyeh8twilight:
    haha i watche dhim on D-List too and he seemed like an ok guy actually. he was funny and was sweet to kathy :)

  • Rain P.

    I think that baby is adorable…….omg.
    What a freaky relationship they have.
    Hope they make it. Their baby deserves it.

  • um

    Well, well well, well well!!!!!

  • burnt bacon

    Was Caribou Barbie standing behind Levi with a shotgun when they made this announcement?
    .
    You’ve got to see it from Sarah’s perspective, though. She’s been out of the spotlight for an entire five minutes, and we just can’t have that, can we?
    .
    She makes the Karda$$h0les look downright reclusive.

  • Nicole

    WTF?!?!

  • lmao

    Her mother must be pissed!!!!!

    Kudos fro US Weekly for actually getting an exclusive, for once lmao

  • nata

    This is a low blow to her mother. I don’t care who she is, she is her mother and she owes her respect. This individual has trash her and her family. Where is her dignity? If I were Sara I will be really hurt by this. You don’t announce your family that you are getting marry thorough a magazine! That is just unacceptable.

  • Ms. Anonymous

    I see a reality show in their future.

  • ace11

    doesn’t bristol know Levi slept with Kathy griffen?

    multiple times?

    she doesn’t care?

    thats as low as you can go

    Beautiful baby

  • Crittle

    Ahahaha. Well, obviously Bristol doesn’t have any respect for her mother or family (or maybe even herself). After all that trash talking both sides did, but I’m not surprised. I bet they wanted to be together all along, I wonder what mama Palin has to say.

  • danielle

    Wow, what a great start to their marriage–they are both afraid to tell their parents they are engaged. So instead of telling them like mature adults, they announce it on the cover on a major gossip magazine. Really mature.

  • Lara CROFT TR

    Yeah… that’ll last. I feel sad for the baby.

  • mia

    From what i read above here is the update from Sara Pailin , so this is what she said probably before this went into publication.

    UPDATE: Sarah issued a statement to NBC News, saying, “Bristol at 19 is now a young adult. We obviously want what’s best for our children. Bristol believes in redemption and forgiveness to a degree most of us struggle to put in practice in our daily lives.”

    I don’t think Saras Pailin will find this one easy but it is amazing what we do for our kids/grandkids. As for Levi Johnson he will have to prove himself to be liked by the family again, cut out the bullsh.it and lies.
    He has alot of hard work ahead of him and taking off his clothes is not one of them. I would bet money Bristol insisted on a bloodtest after him being with Kathy Griffen. I never liked her so didn’t watch her show.

    I have to read more somebody said he admitted to lying for money of course. I hope Bristol knows what she is doing. He might be a looker but she is a very pretty girl and their are lots more of him in the sea.

  • elle

    that kid is freaking cute.

  • Suspicious

    Why do I have the feeling Sarah Palin is behind this? I think she’s gearing up to run for president and needs her entire family intact.

  • Rhonda

    girls are getting stupider

  • http://styleandvogue.blogspot.com DarkEmpress

    Well they have already sold this story to US.. Lets see if they get a reality show together.

  • charlaine

    It is not easy being a parent.
    Sarah Palin has proven to have tremendous class and dignity.
    It is very disturbing that her daughter would get engaged with this goof ball.He cannot even talk care of himself or his son..
    To go behind her mother’s back is hurtful and disrespectful.
    Bristol is only 19..Well good Fing luck to you..you moron..
    I am sure you will be pregnant again…I can see you running back to mommy..Cause all Mother is to you is a meal ticket ..

  • Jamie

    Sounds fishy, he issues a statement saying all his statements about Bristol’s family was a lie and now they are getting married? I think mommy dearest has something to do with this.

  • http://www.scallywagandvagabond.com Kate McDermott

    Who needs approval from your parents when you’ve got a big fat check flying into your mailbox hole courtesy of America’s biggest tabloid whore. Can we all shout ‘payola’ all together?!

    @Jamie:

    I don’t but wish i did see it that way it would make more sense.

    What gets me is i have looked all over the net and he does not say
    what is a lie and what he said that isn’t a lie.
    So is all of it lies ? Or if not which parts?

    I do not believe Sara Pailin called her own child a retard.
    In fact i don’t think most ppl do believe that part. And i am surprised that Mr. Pailin never knocked his lights out for saying that on National Television. It’s doubtful she/he= The Pailins talked about divorce ‘often while in his company. Those are things we don’t talk about with company or anybody else around. To me that’s another lie on his part.
    Obviously the mags and tv programmes told him it didn’t matter what he said it’s not like they could prove he was lying anyway.
    Did the little pri.ck ever think he would get back with his baby mama.?
    He has done a great amount of damage and now to turn around and say ‘ iam sorry i was young and angry. Bristol may be a forgiving person but it doesn’t mean her mom and dad are going to be the same asap.
    I think Levi Johnson is a disgusting little pri.ck. What was he doing taking the oxymorons like his mother? I don’t know i have young SIL’s and DIL’s and at this very moment i am thanking my lucky stars we have good relationships with all of the kids. Jesus Thank You.
    I am not an American so am not concerned about the political aspect of this stuff but i know as forgiving as i am i would have a difficult time forgiving him for the terrible lies he used against the family.

    Bristol has a decent job as a medical assistant. I have read that a number of times. Apparently goes to college at night so will be attending school for a long time as it appears to be very important to her. Levi Johnston graduated but needs to continue his studies by going to college or universatity. It’s not going to be easy by any means for either of them but can be done if you work hard at it.. I find Bristol Pailin to be much more on the ball for setting up future goals than he is.
    So far she has proven when she says she is going to do something she does it. I don’t know about him as they only showed his different
    discussions about him talking about her family. And anything for a buck.
    Kathy Gifford made me want to puke and he took that for money. BLAHH BARF! Seriously if i was a young man you would have to pay me large to get into the sack with that ugly witch. Even with a ton of makeup on she still looked like a clown.

    They are only kids so i wish them all the best they have a long rode ahead of them. I would think the way things use to be in the Pailin household as to Levi Johnson feeling like he was their bio ‘son will change for a long while
    At least ontill he can prove to them that they can trust him once again.

    Will ppl ever believe him again after him admitting that he lied for $$money$$ telling them things they wanted to hear. Doubt it. lol

  • to jamie

    you’re wrong, if mommy dearest had anything to do with this her daughter would not be marrying this jerk

    When i wrote my post i did not have the name @’JAMIE on it.
    Nor did i have the sounds fishy part on it.

    this whole paragraph was not posted by me even tho it looks that way

    I would bet money she won’t get pregnant again. That’s the one thing she spoke out about loud and clear . Did a commercial about it for the Candies Foundation. Did another commercial while doing her first acting gig.
    It only takes remembering one pill a day and if you don’t trust just the pill she can always get him to wear a condom as well.
    Geesh they even have the day after pill for women who are not on the monthly pill. In our city you drop in at the hospital in the morning before 10 am if you had sex the night before. They hand you the one pill with a small cup of water and off you go with no worries about being pregnant.

    Once bitten twice shy. I think the next time Bristol Palin has a child will be by choice. It’s one of the happiest experiences in the world when getting pregnant is planned as it should be.

  • lisa

    @Harmony:

    Harmony,
    i would say she knows all of this stuff by now.:)

  • heather

    I hope she stays at home keeps up her job ontill he proves himself not a little bit but ALLOT . Nobody will be able to tell her this stuff but she will have to learn by the old> live and learn.

    As long as she stays at home while they prepare for their future a lot can happen. For one she may never marry the guy. If that happens
    Levi most likely will never ever be believed again so will be out of a job.
    He will have to go get a REAL job.

    I think this is the best thing that could of happened.
    Make It or Brake It Baby,

    If they don’t make it maybe Kathy Gifford will move him in to be her cabana boy. BWHAHAHAHA

    Their son is adorable. I’m glad that he’s deciding to do the right thing and not be a statistic….I wish them the best. She looks a bit older than I remember her looking…she looks very matronly, unlike her mother.
