We haven't heard much about Levi Johnston's love life since he and Bristol Palin broke off their engagement (for the second time). Then again, we don't live in Wasilla, Alaska, where Bristol no doubt gets all the dirt on her ex through the small-town grapevine. And what she's heard about his newest girlfriend actually makes her pretty happy! Johnston, the father of Bristol's two-year-old son Tripp, has reportedly been dating 19-year-old daycare instructor Sunny Oglesby for two months now.
"I have to be happy for Levi's new relationship because it sounds like his new girlfriend is influencing him to want to actually spend time with Tripp," Palin, 20, tells E! News. "I sincerely appreciate her influence because [Levi] hasn't asked to see Tripp in over five months, so I'm happy for this new development!"
Five months? He hasn't seen his toddler for five months? Oh, that's right -- Tripp has been in Los Angeles while Bristol competed on Dancing With the Stars (and we're pretty sure Johnston's frequent flier miles ran out with his 15 minutes of fame). That's okay, then. As for the new girlfriend, who apparently moved to Wasilla from Seaside, Oregon, E!'s sources say that she's thrilled about her boyfriend's kid.
"She said she's so excited to meet Tripp... when they get back to Alaska," a friend tells the website.
Oglesby and Johnston recently took a big teenage step by declaring their relationship on Facebook (although Oglesby took down a profile photo of her smooching Johnston after the media got a hold of it). From her Facebook page, Oglesby seems like a normal 19-year-old Alaskan girl: under Activities and Interests, she lists "hunting," "fishing," "camping," and "If your makeup isn't done your hair is a mess and your in your pjs and he still cant resist taking you into his arms, he's a keeper!" If she's interested in taking care of Tripp and keeping Levi grounded, it sounds like she might be a keeper, too.
Are you glad that Levi Johnston has moved on? Chime in below!
