(CNN) - For once, John McCain may not have been the center of attention at his own airport arrival.
The Arizona senator, arriving in the Twin Cities Wednesday afternoon to accept his party's presidential nominee, was greeted by both his family and that of running mate Sarah Palin's - including 17-year-old daughter Bristol and her newly revealed fiancé, Levi Johnston.
It was the first time McCain had met Johnston, whom earlier this week the Palins revealed was the father of their daughter Bristol's unborn baby.
Bristol Palin and Johnston firmly held hands as McCain embraced the couple, and appeared to offer his congratulations.
Several other members of the Palin family were also on hand to greet McCain, including the Alaska governor's oldest son, Track, who is slated to head to Iraq later this month.
All of McCain's children were also on the tarmac to greet their father - including his three children from his first marriage - Sydney, Andy and Doug, and his four children with current wife Cindy - Bridget, 23, Jack, Jimmy and Bridget, 17.
