Bristol Palin, the pregnant teenage daughter of Republican V.P. candidate Sarah Palin, and her boyfriend, Levi Johnston, are considering a summer wedding.
Bristol, 17, and Levi, 18, haven't set a date yet, according to the boy's mom, Sherry Johnston. They announced their engagement and pregnancy last month.
The two "have been considering getting married next summer, but that could change," she said during a short interview outside her Wasilla home.
Meanwhile, the London Times, quoting an unnamed source, claims that "expectation is growing" inside the John McCain campaign that there may be a "popularity boosting pre-election wedding in Alaska." Don't bet on it, though.
Not long after Levi was finished thrusting into Bristol Palin, the couple was thrust into the national spotlight after her mother, the first-term Governor of Alaska, was unexpectedly selected as John McCain's running mate in late August.The baby is due in late December.
Sarah Palin announced her unwed daughter was pregnant on September 1 after rumors that Bristol was the real mother of Sarah's infant son Trig.
In a short statement, the McCain-Palin camp said only this: "Bristol and the young man she will marry are going to realize very quickly the difficulties of raising a child, which is why they will have the love and support of our entire family."
Sherry Johnston eventually disclosed that son Levi Johnston, a former high school hockey player and self-proclaimed redneck, was the father.
Levi Johnston attended the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn., that week as Palin accepted the nomination. Talk about paying the price for bad judgment. Have unprotected sex, become a Republican. We feel for you, L.
