Levi Keith Johnston (born May 3, 1990) is the former fiancé of Bristol Palin. He first received media attention in August 2008 upon Sarah Palin's announcement that Bristol was five months pregnant and that Johnston was the father. Plans for a wedding were canceled after the couple broke off their engagement in March 2009.
Johnston has since pursued a career in the entertainment industry as an aspiring actor and model, and has engaged in several public feuds with the Palin family.

Johnston is the elder of two children born to Sherry and Keith Johnston in Wasilla, Alaska. He has a younger sister, Mercede. Johnston is of Mexican and Canadian descent. After dropping out of Wasilla High School in his junior year,he began working full-time for the Alaska North Slope oil fields as an apprentice electrician,but he quit his job in January 2009. He is an avid hunter who has hunted bears, caribou, elk and sheep.[clarification needed]In September 2008, it was reported that Johnston had "antlers scattered about the yard of his family home."

According to Johnston, he and Bristol began dating during their freshman year of high school. After losing a promise ring during a caribou hunt, Johnston had Bristol's name tattooed on his finger.

On September 1, 2008, Sarah Palin announced that her daughter, Bristol, was pregnant by Johnston, and that the two would be married. Johnston denied claims that he was pressured into a shotgun wedding, stating, "We were planning on getting married a long time ago with or without the kid. That was the plan from the start." Bristol gave birth to their son, Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston, on December 27, 2008,but the two broke off their engagement in March 2009. In May 2009, Johnston commented that his relationship with Bristol was improving and that they were determined to jointly raise Tripp.
