Saying 'I'm sorry' isn't something that a lot of 20-year-old guys are prone to do, unless they have a good reason for doing it. And for Levi Johnston, who had a grand time trashing his one-time future mother-in-law Sarah Palin to whomever would listen last year, the mea cupla he recently issued was no doubt because of his rekindled romance with his former fiancée and Sarah's daughter, Bristol Palin.
According to Us Weekly, Levi and Bristol, who are parents to 18-month-old Tripp, got back together several months ago and decided to get engaged again two weeks ago, without telling either of their parents. Levi Johnston: Dear Palins, Sorry For The Lies

"It felt right, even though we don’t have the approval of our parents," said Bristol, who must have known that her mother, Sarah Palin, would probably not approve of her getting back together with the Playgirl centerfold who is also known as "Ricky Hollywood," as Sarah has called him in the past.
"I really thought we were over," said Levi, whose custody battle with Bristol made news headlines. "So when I went, I had no hope. I think we both just started talking-and then we took Tripp for a walk." Bristol Palin Sues Levi Johnston For Custody
Added Bristol: "When he left that night, we didn’t hug or kiss, but I was thinking how different it was. He texted me: 'I miss you. I love you. I want to be with you again' ... I was in shock."

Although Sarah has yet to publicly comment on the news, the Palin family released a statement on The Today Show that read: "Bristol at 19 is now a young adult. We obviously want what's best for our children. Bristol believes in redemption and forgiveness to a degree most of us struggle to put in practice in our daily lives."
Levi and Bristol are reportedly hoping to get married fast, reports Us Weekly, so expect to see wedding photos very soon.
