Although Levi Johnston is going to become a papa for the second time, he indicated in a recent interview that he doesn't "feel like a dad" to Tripp, his son with Bristol Palin.
According to RadarOnline, Levi mentioned he hasn't seen his son lately. "I love Tripp more than anything and he is my son, but I don't feel like a dad to him," he explained. "Not by choice…hopefully one day I can be."
Levi told Brooke Anderson on The Insider, "There was a time we went to the cabin and forgot the birth control pills and, you know, about a month later we found out we were having a baby."
His girlfriend, Sunny Oglesby, came to his defense and added, "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."
In fact, Sunny thinks Sarah Palin is the primary reason for Levi's bad image. "It's really sad that [the Palins have] put that image out for him, 'cause, I mean, everyone's gonna believe them because they're more famous…. You know, it's Sarah Palin, and she has a lot of fans, so everyone believes that, and Levi really doesn't have a chance against them."
Levi pretty much agrees and thinks Sarah is keeping him away from her grandson. "I think she's, you know, she plays a big role…on Bristol, you know. Bristol looks up to her, and that's a family, and, you know, I listen to my family."
The full interview will air on The Insider tonight.
