How I Really Feel About Levi’s New Baby

How I Really Feel About Levi’s New Baby September 17, 2012

As you have undoubtedly heard, Levi just welcomed a baby with his girlfriend last week.  Immediately, people wondered how I would respond to the news that my son Tripp has a new half-sister.

Which strikes me as a little odd.  Though I don’t have much interaction with Levi, of course I’m happy for him.  A child is a blessing and I know they are experiencing the joys (and challenges!) of having a newborn.

Tripp sent the new baby flowers, and we both wish all the best for her!

    Nice!! No need to waste energy on negative thoughts and feelings. Life is too short!

  • James

    It shouldn’t strike you as odd given your previous public comments on learning she was pregnant.

    But good for you for wishing them the best, and good for you for allowing Tripp in Levi’s life again. I hope you keep it up, because Tripp needs all of his family. Levi truly wants to be a father to his son. He would gladly have him on all of his court ordered days.

    Tripp has two parents, not just one and my wish for him is that he gets to be a great big brother and be a big part of both sides of his family.

    • Jann Marthaler

      I believe that she was saying that the fact that people were wondering how she would respond was striking her as odd…not that the baby was born. Of course she knew about it.

    • Valerie

      I don’t understand your comments about Tripp in Levi’s life “again”? Bristol as begged Levi to be in Tripp’s life, Levi didn’t answer messages or invites to see Tripp. And lets face it, Levi will never be a dad to Tripp now that their is another child with yet another girl friend. I wonder has Levi figured out that his moral’s are in real question now? Once could be a mistake or accident, twice the boy has a keep it in his pants problem. And complete disregard for any respect to these girl’s that will go it alone when he bails on her too.

      • James

        I understand that you don’t understand, there are two sides to every story.

        • rebecca

          what the heck, james?? everyone understands there are 2 sides to every story. duh!! let me put this in braille for you. bristol is court ordered to let levi have tripp for his non-custodial visitaions. ya really think she would go against a court of law, or even to just be a little stinker and not allow levi access to his son?? levi is responsible for picking up the phone or emailing bristol with plans as to when he plans on getting his son. bristol does not get to decide that. only levi can. if he doesn’t want to see his son, that is up to him!! however, bashing bristol and saying awful things is not a very Christian thing to do. instead of feeling bad for “poor little levi”, your heart should go out to tripp…..he is the one that is without a dad at his dads own doings. LEAVE BRISTOL ALONE!!!!!

          • James

            You are wrong about what Bristol would do, but I only said good things about Bristol here and good things about Levi so what is your problem?

          • Truth101

            James, There is nothing nice to say about a turd like Ricky Hollywood. The little turd has another kid to care for and he can’t walk away from this one and blame it on the Palins. What is the lowlife scum going to do contact TMZ and tell them the Palins made him do it?

      • melinda

        Didn’t answer messages or invites??? Oh, you mean during Bristol’s reality show? That was all staged for the cameras and of course Levi wouldn’t be a part of that. See, unlike Bristol, he’s done with Hollywood. And what the heck…. why would she set that up for the cameras and do that to her son? Is the money worth that much to her to mess with Tripp?

  • Laura Beth Eck

    Bristol, I think you are an amazing woman! I think it is great how you have handled Levi and Tripp’s new half-sister…you have class!

  • christina

    I wish you and your baby boy all the best. Hopefully Levi’s eyes will open to see he has 2 wonderful gifts from god that he needs to be there and support.

  • Isabella

    Shut up! No way! You poor ninny.

  • Nancy Daughton

    Proud of you Bristol, since you two arent compatible, and you’re living your life, let him live his. You need to get along for the sake of the child. And yes, any child born is a blessing. Nice gesture sending flowers. Love ya.

  • Rosanna

    i honestly am very proud of you and how mature you are about the whole situation, Tripp is very lucky to have a devoted mother like you.

    As for me i don’t understand why he insists on having more kids if he cant take care of his first child.

  • classy!!!!!!

  • Cathy

    What happened to Gino. You two seemed so much in love together. I thought we might be getting another wonderful Palin in the near future for Tripp to play with.

    • melinda

      Tripp isn’t a Palin, he is a Johnston. There has been no name change. As for Gino, that was another fling. Too bad Bristol encouraged Tripp to call him “daddy”. Then there was Joey Junker. Next? Who knows…..

  • Nightbird

    Ugh, I think ‘whatever’. I feel sorry for the baby. Tripp has a great family and men in his life to follow as examples. This one may not. That’s sad.

    • ladydawnelle

      I agree with Nightbird

    • James

      Wow, how terrible to think like that.
      For the record the new baby has two great parents and an extended family that is over the moon. She is already spoiled rotten. Tripp is also part of that family and Bristol has been working with Levi lately to make sure Tripp sees his father.

      Remember there are two sides to every story, Levi loves both of his children dearly and wants to be in both of their lives regardless of what you have heard about him.

      • rebecca

        what we have heard and what remains to be seen are 2 quite different things. no one is making assumptions about levi, rather going by his own track record that he himself created!!! by the way, james… much are you getting paid to monitor blogs and say things that make levi look good??? i’m sure a lot of us are curious about that one. but, in case you are saying things because you, too, are a single dad, please get all the facts straight before voicing your ‘opinion’. do you really, honsetly think bristol would keep tripp from his dad??? i think not!!!!!

      • Truth101

        James, You are so full of it. Bristol just said in an interview that she has no contact with the sperm donor. Ricky is living with his extexded family. The drug addict mother and the stripper sister. Maybe Ricky and the stripper sister can get a gig and strip together.

  • Bekah

    Ok, looking at the comments here and trying to figure out how Isabella’s even fits into this at all. Really? You actually said that?
    Bristol, thank you for taking the high road here once again and doing what is right as well as setting the positive example for Tripp.
    Take care girl and God bless

  • Dana

    Good for you!! Very classy. Was very nice to send the flowers too.

  • hesnotmypresident

    Good girl sweetheart! Best way to handle it. Hopefully Levi will be preoccupied with his baby now and quit telling lies about you and your family. Tripp is adorable, and you are a great mom. Never believe anything else!

  • Kathy Sleen

    I hope the daddy grows as the baby does and you can someday attend little sisters birthday party with your boy. It would be best for the children. I make a point of telling the grandchildren the good things about their Dad. You could say to Tripp ” He sure was good looking and so are you.”

  • bellagrazi

    Bristol, you are always extremely gracious. A child is always a blessing. Tripp must be thrilled to have a new baby sister. Hopefully, one day you will give him more little brothers and sisters.

  • Truth101

    Bristol, It is amazing. Ricky Hollywood knocks up another girl. Ricky Hollywood trashed your family for money. Ricky Hollywood could care less about his son unless there is money attached to it. Ricky Hollywood owes thousands in child support. Ricky Hollywood can’t afford one child and now he has two. Ricky Hollywood the umemployed bum.

    The corrupt MSM could ask so many questions about that lying bum but they want to harass you about that lying turd’s second child out of wedlock.

    • Ralph

      Levi Johnston is not an unemployed bum. He has a job as an electrician.

      Your tone is so Christ-like.

      • rebecca

        out of all of that, the only untruth is that he has a job? wow!!!! thanks for establishing that the rest is true……i think we all knew that, though!!!

        • Truth101

          Ralph, Have you not heard the latest from the lying scumbag Ricky Hollywood? I can’t keep up with all of Ricky’s lies. The latest is Ricky Hollywood is an unemployed oil worker. Maybe Ricky should contact the liars at Yahoo to correct that story.

      • NanaJ

        Did he actually get a license as an electrician or he is just a helper? Sunny says she is a school TEACHER. I understand she was just a helper at pre-school.

        • Heather

          Sunny never said she was a teacher. She is a PRESCHOOL TEACHER. Nice way to take something out of context. Daycare is often considered preschool. Most of them actually teach instead of just babysitting.

        • Truth101

          Ricky Hollywood is an unemployed bum but he just got a check for $800 from the Alaska fund so that should hold him over for 1 day.

  • Keep on Truckin …

  • Steve

    You certainly have more character than Levi Bristol. good for you!

  • NanaJ

    Blessings to you and Tripp, Bristol. The flowers from Tripp was most gracious.

  • very good. Interesting

  • Heather

    Some of you people are quite a show.
    1) Sunny isnt a teacher. she is a PRESCHOOL TEACHER. Nice way to take things out of context. Most daycares teach and are considered preschool because they do more than just babysit.
    2) Levi has a job as an electrician. Who the crap cares if he is a helper or not? If he is getting paid, does it matter?
    3) Levi is behind on child support because it is some crazy amount. Child support was set on what he made when he did Playgirl, the book, and other side gigs. Granted, he probably should have filed a modification for child support once he no longer made that sort of money. Most people…average people…dont have career politicians for parents. Levi’s mother gets disability. He is simply just your average Joe.
    4) Whatever Levi and Sarah Palin say about each other is their business.
    5) I think it was sweet Bristol sent flowers from tripp.

    • Truth101

      I see you are a Ricky Hollywood lover?
      Ricky Hollywood is an unemployed oil worker. That is his latest lie.
      Ricky Hollywood is behind on his child suppport payments because the scam artists that talked that loser into lying about the Palins took all his money.
      Ricky Hollywood is a lowlife scumbag that trashed and lied about the Palins for an easy buck. I am sure that drug addict mother and batty sister were right there whispering in his ear to do it for the money and for us. The Hollywood liberals used that scumbag up and now look where he is? He is back at home living in his drug addict mom’s basement.

      Sarah Palin never talks about that lowlife scumbag. He’s the creep that injects the Palin name into all of his problems.

      All the nasty lying shiz that scumbag loser said about his son’s family is out there and someday Tripp will read and see it. That is your Ricky Hollywood and the scumbag piece of shiz still won’t shut his mouth if he thought there was a free penny to put his pocket.

      Ricky Hollywood is scum.

      • Cheryl

        Wow, do you know this family personally ? I am always interested in knowing how people get their info before I judge people. I do not know Levi but I need more first hand knowledge before I can blame him for EVERYTHING..

  • aaron krohn

    I think your wishes for Levi’ the Liar’s newborn will go unfulfilled.
    And who better to know this??
    What has Levi the Liar done for Tripp….except to provide (during a date rape!!) the sperm from which he grew??
    He’s given no money and no emotional support….to you or to his son.
    He’s a total LOSER!!!

    I just hope that someone gets that new baby taken away from Levi the Liar… he’ll have a good chance to grow into a family who really cares for their children….even if it’s a foster family!!

    I know you’re a Christian who believes in forgivance and redemption…..but in Levi the Liar, you have someone who does NOT deserve your good wishes!!

    • melinda

      Aaron, that tale of alleged date rape at the start of Bristol’s book is not when Tripp was conceived, but rather when/how Bristol allegedly lost her virginity. She continued to have sex after that and eventually Tripp was conceived.

  • CJ

    Bristol, once again, you have taken the high road in a sensitive situation.
    Tripp is so Blessed to have a mama like you 🙂

  • Brooke

    But didn’t you express horror in a previous interview at the idea that Tripp might have to go to school with 10 half-siblings? That was certainly a mature, responsible comment to make as his mother by the way…

    • autumng

      Probably directed at Levi’s lack of ability to keep his pants zipped up and continuing to spread his “seed” before he’s wed.

      • melinda

        Actually autumng, that’s a family trait of Bristol’s. Bristol, her brother, her mother, her grandmother……

  • politicaljules

    I think the moral of the story here is…. Bristol is over it. We should strive to be over it too. It is not to drag everything through the mud again. Sometime very soon we aregoing to have to act like grownups.

  • Sarah

    Brooke, I think her whole logic about the situation is how it’ll effect Tripp in the long run. Other kids may make fun of him for having half-siblings and/or because of who his parents are. And like PoliticalJules said, all in all, Bristol is over it. Very sweet of you to send Tripp’s sister (half or not, they’re still related to an extent), flowers on his behalf :).



  • Penny

    Bravo for taking the high road. There are going to be a lot of disappointments in Tripp’s life related to having a dad like Levi who struggles with obvious character issues and what will ensure Tripp a normal life is having a mother who doesn’t lie for the absent father, but instead helps him to know both parents love him regardless of their shortcomings. I know as I speak from experience.
