Levi Johnston Dad

Levi is about to become a father for the second time, but he also wants to be in his first son’s life more!

Levi Johnston and Bristol Palin share a three-year-old son, Tripp Palin, but the father hasn’t seen his son recently, he tells The Insider in a new interview. “I love Tripp more than anything and he is my son but I don’t feel like a dad to him,” he confesses. “Not by choice… hopefully one day I can be.” 

Levi, 21, and pregnant girlfriend Sunny Oglesby, 20, admit the pregnancy was accidental because they forgot to take birth control on a camping trip, and they’re already considering Tripp to be a “big brother” to their new edition.

Levi says he will “never” be a dead beat dad, and Sunny defends him, saying, “I’m tired of people thinking that my boyfriend’s a bad father, especially now that I’m having his baby. I don’t want people thinking that about him.”

She adds,”He tries to get Tripp all the time.”

The couple say Sarah Palin is to blame for Levi’s bad reputation, and that’s reason he doesn’t get to see his son. They think she’s keeping Tripp away from Levi because Sarah plays a “big role” in Bristol’s life, and her daughter listens to her.

“It’s really sad, his image, because it’s pretty much the complete opposite of how he is in real life,” Sunny insists. “He’s an awesome dad.”

Hopefully Levi will be reunited with Tripp in the near future so he can be a father to his son!
