Listen, these two could either be con artists who deserve each other or a young couple who made a few mistakes, learned from them and now are genuinely interested in attempting to pursue a life together--either way, you hope they do what's best for their child.Ah, young love. After weeks of rumors, Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston tell Us Weekly they are getting married — with or without the approval of the bride's mother, Sarah Palin.
The pair say they reconnected about three months ago while working out a custody agreement for their 18-month-old son, Tripp. “I really thought we were over,” Johnston, 20, tells the magazine, which puts the formerly star-crossed lovers on the cover. But after a walk, Bristol says, she was stunned how different her former fiancé was. Later, Johnston texted her: “I miss you. I love you. I want to be with you again.” “I was in shock,” says Bristol, 19.
According to the magazine, Johnston and Palin secretly got engaged two weeks ago. Perhaps that explains the public apology that Johnston issued last week via People magazine, for lying about the Palin family. (No word yet on what celebrity periodical will be catering the reception, but our money is on OK!)
