Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston are 'co-parenting'

Last month, Bristol Palin told Harper's Bazaar that Levi Johnston, her ex and the father of her son Tripp, was a "stranger" to her, yet reports have surfaced that their relationship is actually on the mend. In a statement to ABC's "Good Morning America," Palin defines the relationship as "co-parenting."

“I am doing my best to raise a happy, active and healthy boy,” Palin, 19, told “Good Morning America.”

“I believe that wherever possible, if the parents can cooperate and co-parent in a positive way, the child will benefit. Levi and I are turning a new page here as co-parents to this wonderful boy and putting aside the past because doing so is in Tripp’s best interest,” she added.

An article in Us Weekly claimed that Palin is back together with Johnston, quoting an unnamed source close to Palin who said the two are "very close" and "spend more time together than people think."

    Who cares, the Palin grandbaby is the poster child for abortion, now matter how much money it has it will have to go though life knowing the only reason it was not aborted was its grandmas political views. There is no hope for mental stability of the poor kid. It would be bad enough knowing its grandma couldn't even finish a 4year term in Alaska. Sarah Palin was too stupid to even run that state, why would anyone think she could run 50 of them?

    Everyone saying they are a typical "American Family" is sadly mistaken. When a teenager has a child out of wedlock, they certainly do not have all the help and support systems Bristol has. I was a teenage mother. I still managed to attend college, graduate with a Masters and obtain a good job to support my child. With that said, Bristol does nothing but live off of her mother(idiot) and her mothers fame. She has done nothing or accomplished nothing on her own.

    Most single mothers (especially young ones) have a very rough and diffcult path before them. They work full time jobs to barely make bills after paying a sitter. Then they miss so much time with that child, that by the time he/she is older they regret what they missed. But their children grow up proud knowing that their parent was able and willing to provide a life for them with honest work!!! The point here is Bristol is not a "typical" single unwed mother. She is a spoiled brat, that still relies heavily on her mother and probably always will. Since she was not raised by an intelligent women able to make her own path without the help of others.

    And this is news why??? They could do the "right thing" and get married, that way Tripp would have a "real family". Many people have gone the married route with no adverse effects. Of course, you have to be mature and grown up in order to make a marriage work. It's a job, not "playing house" which is what it seems like with these two.

    Sarah Palin is a very attractive lady. I think we need to nickname her "Scarf", because every time she goes outside without one, her skull whistles.

    Sarah Palin can see the "Oil Spill" from her home.

      People come on stop the hatred and name calling. Have none of you read the news of all the young people who take their own lives because of constant bullying? No one so young should have to be subjected to such petty hatred, jealousy and plain bigoted opinions! You would not judge you sister, niece, child or grandchild with such filth and hatred. Leave these people alone. Yes a mistake was made. The mistake does not make them non christians, or terrible people. Everyone of you should be ashamed. A mistake does not make a tramp, or trailer trash, nor does it mean she sleeps around and has vanerial diseases. As a nation we should be move forgiving, and able to lend a hand to someone who has fallen, made a mistake, or just plain needs support. All of you hateful people need to back off! She is a human being and deserves to be treated like one, not drug through the mud. One of these days that child will grow up and read stupid postings by you people. It's not ok to malign and beat people down all the time. It is time to rise above all this and just realize she made a mistake, just like your sister, mother, aunt, cousin, or friend and she is no more lower class than any of those people. I don't care who her mother is! She is an individual and does not deserve this. It is ok that she is being a spokesperson for teenage pregnancy. Who better than someone who is living it? She is able to earn a living and go to school all while raising a child. Obvioulsy she is smarter than a lot of you posting on here. Now back off and grow up. There is enough teen suicide without you guys pushing people to it. You must be proud of yourselves. All high and mighty bashing young people and can't even post your own names. Wow.

    Fox News, Rush, and the entire cast and crew make so much more money when Republicans are mad and they can sit in the middle and bank off the ad revenue.

    Who cares – other than their families? Bottom line this would not have been news had it not been for her idiot mother. It's unfortunate that these kids have had their personal issues aired publicly – but they can only thank Bristol's mother for that mess. I think most would agree that it is always in the best interest of the child if the parents can meet halfway for the good of the child. I applaud them for trying to find ways to improve their relationship so that the child doesn't suffer. Now – go have a happy life and stay outta the news.

    Sadly, it may be true that the Palins are a "normal" American family. The average American is undereducated, destructive, hateful, ignorant, and bereft of independent thought. These are not quality people. If they were smarter, they'd understand they're an embarrassment. Anyone who thinks a "normal family" like the Palins should be in the white house, are more than likely "normal" white trash, also with no desire to strive to be "exceptional".

      It's not that others don't have faults, but we don not put it in the national spotlight EVERY time we make some type of life decision. This isn't news, it's two single parents trying to get along to take care of their child. These two aren't the first nor will they be the last to do this so why put it as "news"? But I think that a lot of people who do criticize (sometimes I'm one of them) Bristol and Levi is because during the campaign, they lied about getting married. They knew from jump that they had no intentions on getting married. Keep it real, don't fake the funk for personal gain because the truth is going to come out sooner or later.

Seriously, she'd never get a major candidacy after the ethics thing. What has she got except the same unwanted notoriety? After 2012 she'll be wearing Gary Coleman's teeny shoes: no work in her field, and too famous to get a real job, so who can blame her for shoveling in the cash?

      Let's see, the daughter of nominated GOP VP gets knocked up, big deal is made that boyfriend is the "fiance" and they're getting married. Both paraded throughout the United States during presidential campaign. Breakup after the kid is born, mother loses the presidency for McCain (and there's no doubt in my mind more people voted against Palin than for Obama). Bristol graduates high school, now living in her own place, going to school, working, part time mother – the kid is in day care, also working and traveling for Candies as their "Don't Get Knocked Up" spokeshole making who knows how much money, plus receiving child support from Levi and no doubt receiving money from the millionaire grandmother. Oh, and has her face splashed across CNN at least once a month for nothing more substantial than to report she is "co-parenting" with the father of the kid.

      Yep, sounds like the average all American family to me.

Do you really believe, two hormonal teenagers who managed to have a baby while Bristol was 'supervised" living with parents and siblings, are excercising extreme self control now that Bristol has her own apartment? At age 2 I'm sure that baby is sleeping throughthe night, how much co-parenting requires an overnight stay?

I don't know what it is about this family, but like most posting here, I can't for the life of me figure out why Bristol, her child, or the child's father is news. They're now co-parenting – BFD.

      yes, I care...even if I personally don't like the Palins, a lot of people do, and they define the new conservatism for a lot of people. It's bad enough that some liberals don't understand a child has two parents – unfortunately some liberals associate the keeping of historical priveleges in regards to child rearing with the woman – a woman's issue. And some conservatives have ancient viewpoints on gender roles...so any time you get these two groups agreeing with each other, its disaster.

      I'm glad Palin, Bristol recognizes the child has two parents, and hopefully she'll recognize that its simply a fact, and not something she can pick and choose to recognize as her mood swings.

      Alaska law needs to change. Two parents, equal time, equal support from both, no more gender bias.

Because of his great speeches and NO ACTION we as a country are broke, all of our 401K money is basically gone due to the sad economic situation we are in. The Tea Party that you and other FOOLS laugh at is gaining steam every day and Sarah Palin is one of those leaders. Most of the DEMS will lose their seats in the next election.

    the dems will NOT get voted out, the party of 'no' has done a good job of showing us that they have zero to offer and our best chance is with Obama
