Fake engagements, court battles, baby mama drama and sabotaging a former V.P. candidate in the press. That was the life of Levi Johnston for the past year.
Despite all of that, he and Bristol Palin just got back together!
The parents of 18-month-old Tripp are making it work after all, despite breaking off their engagement in March 2009 and a prolonged period of icy relations.
Things have thawed considerably between the young parents in recent months, and "Bristol and Levi are still very close," a source close to Bristol tells Us.
The eldest daughter to former Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin is "on her own in Anchorage" and she and Levi "spend more time together than most people think."
The expectant parents before the 2008 Republican National Convention.
Asked for comment, Bristol Palin would say only that "Levi and me are co-parents of Tripp and we are actively working on being good parents together."
Levi added: "Nothing is more important than Tripp. We are taking active steps to cooperatively raise him, sharing the joys and challenges of parenthood."
Earlier this year, Bristol said Levi was "a stranger to me," while Johnston told Entertainment Tonight that the Palins were basically trying to cut him out.
Things have changed since then, the Bristol source says, noting that "Bristol is a great mom and cares for Tripp; [she] and Levi are raising him together."
We couldn't be happier. Hope she makes good at that new abstinence pledge, though - we know she can get pregnant, but give it a few years at least.
