Sarah Palin’s oldest daughter, Bristol Palin, is engaged to Levi Johnston. The young couple called off their first engagement in 2008 but recently reunited.
“We got engaged two weeks ago,” Bristol tells Us Weekly. “It felt right, even though we don’t have the approval of our parents.”
Palin and Johnston have an 18-month-old son together named Tripp. While working out a custody agreement they reconnected.
“Bristol at 19 is now a young adult,” Sarah Palin said in a statement to the “Today” show. “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.”
