Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston say they're engaged and hope to get married within six weeks in Alaska. Palin, the daughter of 2008 vice-presidential candidate and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, is featured on the cover of Us Weekly with Johnston, holding their 18-month-old son, Tripp.
Bristol Palin tells the magazine that she finds the idea of telling her mother about her engagement "intimidating and scary."
Intimidating or not, I’m hoping she had the discussion with her parents some time between the interview and the appearance of the story in the newspaper. I don’t think hearing about your engagement from the Washington Post or Us Weekly is likely to make Mom a lot happier about the whole thing. (via The Corner).
