Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston announce engagement

Celebrity magazine US weekly was the first to know

Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston are getting married—and they told US Weekly about their plans even before notifying their parents. The celebrity magazine reports Bristol and Levi got engaged two weeks ago without the blessing of their parents. In fact, Bristol says she finds the prospect of telling her mother, 2008 vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, “intimidating and scary.” The younger Palin is featured on the cover of the magazine with Johnston, along with their 18-month-old son Tripp. The couple says they reconnected while working out a custody plan and hope to get married within six weeks in Alaska.
