Bristol Palin has agreed to Wednesdays and Saturdays as visiting days for Levi and he’s happy with that.

“Saturday is usually the best day of the week for me. It’s the day I get to see my son,” he tells Entertainment Tonight. “I’m pumped that I get to see him twice a week. It feels pretty good. You can’t dwell on what happened.”

Levi and Bristol, despite their split, still find time to talk about their son Tripp.

“She tells me if something’s new but you know it is as far as we get. She called and told me he said ‘Dad.’ [We] actually got together and went into Anchorage and ate dinner, just the three of us and got him some ice cream,” he shares. “It was pretty fun. We just got to be good parents and work with each other. We keep conversation to Tripp and that’s about it.”

As far as the birthday party the Palins had for Tripp, Levi didn’t get to attend.

“I wish I was there for that but I couldn’t be. He looked really cute in all the pictures and I am glad,” he says. “Just seeing him happy is good, even though I’m not there.”

He may not have been there, but his face was.

“I think he looks more like me,” Levi says. “Everyone I’ve talked to says he looks more like me. I am trying to get him to play hockey. He’s really getting close with trying to grab the stick.”
