Compliments of US Weekly.. even the blogs aren’t posting about this yet..
Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston reveal exclusively in the new Us Weekly that they are getting married.
And, they tell Us Weekly, former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has been kept in the dark about their plans … until now.
“We got engaged two weeks ago,” Bristol, 19, tells Us Weekly. “It felt right, even though we don’t have the approval of our parents.”
Bristol and Levi, 20 — who famously called off their previous engagement two weeks after welcoming son Tripp in December 2008 — tell Us Weekly they reconnected three months ago while working out a custody plan for their 18-month-old son.
“I really thought we were over,” Levi tells Us Weekly. “So when I went, I had no hope. I think we both just started talking — and then we took Tripp for a walk.”
Says Bristol, “When he left that night, we didn’t hug or kiss, but I was thinking how different it was. He texted me: ‘I miss you. I love you. I want to be with you again’ … I was in shock.”
Now comes the hard part: Getting the blessing of Sarah Palin, who has made no secret of her feelings for Levi. He irked her last fall by claiming that she referred to her infant son Trig (who has Down syndrome) as “retarded.” She fired back, telling reporters that anyone who posed for Playgirl would “say and do anything for even more attention.” Later, during an interview with Oprah Winfrey, she dubbed him “Ricky Hollywood” and called his “aspiring porn” career “heartbreaking.”
Says Bristol, “It is intimidating and scary just to think about what her reaction is going to be. Hopefully she will jump on board.”

This story is actually on a few websites. I just hope they’re ready for the backlash that’s to come from all the media cites.

I can understand why the two of them are a hot mess when they’re so young and they have a child and were in a crazy situation.
I just can’t understand how or why Sarah keeps commenting on it, she just needs to keep mum, her daughters love life does not need to be discussed in interviews!

I like Sarah but was not a fan of the ex fiance’s choices. Kissing and telling certain things aren’t cool no matter what, whether you’re famous or not.
Situations happen in American families. They just do. I have seen this type of situation happen time and time again. I also know of a few women who are married because of their being a mom and getting pregnant too. That’s nothing new to me imho.
