Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston cancel their engagement

Bristol Palin, 18-year-old daughter of former Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin, has called off her engagement to Levi Johnston, the 19-year-old father of their newborn son, Tripp, People.com is reporting. The young couple shot to notoriety during last year’s presidential campaign, and became the target of many comedians, including Tina Fey in a Saturday Night Live satire of the VP debate between Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and then-Sen. Joe Biden. In the skit, Fey, as Palin, said she was against gay marriage because she believed marriage was "a sacred institution between two unwilling teenagers." About the split, Bristol told the Associated Press that she was "devastated." Johnston said the breakup was a mutual decision.

    And the entire world said…”Yeah. That sounds about right.”

    I feel sorry for them, I really hoped that they would get married but I think they’ll be able to be good parents without getting married, or at least I hope so.

    The one to suffer most in this will be the innocent child. He will grow up in a broken family. Ideal situation to bring a child into the world is with both a mother and a father. Is this rocket science? No one has common sense these days?? Sad.

    the best thing for a child is a happy, healthy parent to raise them – whether it is a man or woman or some combination of the two.

  • John

    They were NEVER going to get married – it was all a political thing so that Mom wouldn’t look bad while running for VP – and what a joke that was!

  • bloodbath

    Typical white trash. No one should be surprised – it was always a fake engagement – as fake as her mother, Sarah.
    No one should be surprised when they finally admit Trig is hers too.

    I guess SILLY Sarah Failin’ and her family finally figured it was time to end the CHARADE, and NOW is as good a time as ever! OsiSpeaks.com

    S. Palin obviously is a hypocrite with her obsession to have government intervene in the most personal lives of everyone. In favor of funding for big government to restrict education that teaches the biology of the birds-and-bees, use of pencillin (because it’s about evolution), and science in general (stem cell research to help Parkinson’s patients, spinal cord paralysis like Christopher Reeve’s, and Alzheimer’s victims, she has always been more into speaking in tongues while spending on herself. Her child turned out the exact same way that many in the Deep South still do when fundamentalist religion overtakes reason and parental role models.
    r job, while her child has a child out of wedlock

    “No one should be surprised when they finally admit Trig is hers too.”
    How does anyone still actually believe that? Frankly, I don’t care about any Palins or anyone else, but anyone who passed 8th grade science is (or should be) aware of the fact that Down Syndrome is most prevalent among older mothers. Go read a book and stop being so venomous.

  • Jerry Ulibarri

    The Republicans wanted this to be our Second Family.
    Amazing.

  • jojo

    Go back and read your science books- downs syndrome is also more likely when the mother is quite young – both ends of the spectrum with a slightly higher risk in the older

  • Me

    Down’s syndrome is also prevalent among DRUGS USERS. LEVI IS A KNOWN DRUG USER. His mom is a druggie/ dealer. He is known to deal in the area as well. I don’t know about Bristol, but one would imagine if the boyfriend uses drugs…she likely does as well. But either/or using drugs produced the first Down’s Syndrome baby. Please. Even Sarah’s staff does not believe the first baby is Sarah’s. And Sarah had an affair with her husband’s best friend/ business partner. NO moral character, any of them. Sarah is corrupt and immoral.

  • Person

    Guy/girl below me, yes, Bristol uses drugs, or at least she used to. I went to school with her for a short time, and she was a known heroin user.

    Only about nine percent of total pregnancies occur in women 35 years or older each year, but about 25% of babies with Down syndrome are born to women in this age group. The incidence rate for a 45 year old mom is 1 in 35. The likelihood that a woman under 30 who becomes pregnant will have a baby with Down syndrome is less than 1 in 1,000, but the chance of having a baby with Down syndrome increases to 1 in 400 for women who become pregnant at age 35. This fact is sited from http://www.nichd.nih.gov/publications/pubs/downsyndrome.cfm
    Jojo, if you have a reputable site to support your claim, please list it so that we can view these facts.
    Thanks,
