Bristol's babydad finally gives an interview, to some tabloid crews apparently camped out in front of his house.
Was he forced to marry Bristol?
Johnston said he has dated Palin since his freshman year in high school. "We were planning on getting married a long time ago with or without the kid," he said. "That was the plan from the start."
What about his appearance at the speech at the RNC?
Johnston said he wasn't forced to campaign with Palin's mother. Bristol Palin invited him and Johnston jumped at the chance. It was a whirlwind experience for Johnston, who was seated with the Palins at the Republican National Convention."At first, I was nervous," he said. "Then I was like, 'Whatever.'"
What's with the ring tattoo?
Last July on a caribou hunt he lost a "promise" ring that Palin had given him. He said he decided to tattoo her name on the finger and not bother with more rings because he'd just lose them anyway.
Does he really not want kids like his myspace page says?
"We're up for it. I'm excited to have my first kid. It's going to be a lot of hard work but we can handle it."
So obviously Bristol and Levi (who dropped out of school) ignored their abstinence lessons, but they are getting an A+ in liberals' favorite class: Taking Responsibility for Your Actions 101.
Oh yeah. The baby, a boy, is due on December 18.
