Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston are both single parents now.
The young couple, who welcomed son Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston two months ago, have gone their separate ways.
Rumors had been swirling, and Johnston, 19, finally confirmed Wednesday that they have been broken up for a while.
After being thrust into the national spotlight last summer, Johnston and Palin, the eldest daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, had said they were planning to marry this summer after she finished high school.
Bristol, 18, continues to attend Wasilla High School in her native Alaska and is said to be thinking about attending college in the fall. Johnston left an apprenticeship with ASRC Energy Services Inc. in January after local media revealed the program required a high school diploma, and Johnston had never graduated.
Almost every family has a rebellious member and my guess is that young Bristol Palin more than meets the criteria for the Palin's. First, she's having sex as a teen and gets knocked up by her high-school boyfriend, then she tosses more mud in the face of her conservative mother's views by going on to TV and remarking that "it's unrealistic" for teenagers to practice abstinence. And now she's become another sad statistic: single, teenage mom as well as perfect foil for self-righteous liberals for as long as her mother remains in the national spotlight.
