Well, that didn’t take long: Sarah and Todd Palin responded to daughter Bristol’s surprise engagement with a statement on Good Morning America. “We obviously want what's best for our children,” it reads. “Bristol believes in redemption and forgiveness to a degree most of us struggle to put in practice in our daily lives. We pray that, as a couple, Bristol and Levi's relationship matures into one that will allow Tripp to grow up graced with two loving parents in his life.” So, um…is that a “congratulations”?

Meanwhile, Bristol is already talking to People—and for a newly engaged gal, she doesn’t seem all that overjoyed. She wasn’t wearing a ring—and when asked if she is marrying Levi Johnston, she said, “Yeah. I mean, I don't really want to get into detail about what's in store for our future, because who knows? But all I'd like to say about it is, hopefully we will be a family.”
