Caribbean Fever - Your ONLY destination to all things Caribbean and more
The pair, both 20, say they reconnected about three months ago while working out a custody agreement for their 18-month-old son, Tripp. “I really thought we were over,” Johnston tells the magazine, which puts the formerly star-crossed lovers on the cover. But after a walk, Bristol says she was stunned how different her former fiancé was. Later, Johnston texted her: “I miss you. I love you. I want to be with you again.” “I was in shock,” Bristol says.
According to the magazine, Johnston and Palin secretly got engaged two weeks ago. Perhaps that explains the public apology Johnston issued last week via People magazine, for lying about the Palin family. (No word yet on what celebrity periodical will be catering the reception, but our money is on OK!)
There’s still no word on how that was received, but maybe we have a clue: Bristol is only now telling her mom, via a tabloid magazine, that she’s getting married. “It is intimidating and scary just to think about what her reaction is going to be,” Bristol says. “Hopefully she will jump on board.”
In a statement to NBC's Today Show this morning, Sarah and Todd Palin said they want what's best for their kids and that Bristol believes in "redemption and forgiveness to a degree most of us struggle to put in practice in our daily lives."
