Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston are 'co-parenting'

(CNN) - Last month, Bristol Palin told Harper's Bazaar that Levi Johnston, her ex and the father of her son Tripp, was a "stranger" to her, yet reports have surfaced that their relationship is actually on the mend. In a statement to ABC's "Good Morning America," Palin defines the relationship as "co-parenting."

“I am doing my best to raise a happy, active and healthy boy,” Palin, 19, told “Good Morning America.”

“I believe that wherever possible, if the parents can cooperate and co-parent in a positive way, the child will benefit. Levi and I are turning a new page here as co-parents to this wonderful boy and putting aside the past because doing so is in Tripp’s best interest,” she added.

An article in Us Weekly claimed that Palin is back together with Johnston, quoting an unnamed source close to Palin who said the two are "very close" and "spend more time together than people think."

    While I am glad for the child and agree with the statement, "I believe that wherever possible, if the parents can cooperate and co-parent in a positive way, the child will benefit" – lets not take this for more than it it...as some new pearl of wisdom she is sharing with the world – pregnant teen+wisdom is an oxymoron. To be clear, I am speaking of the word combination and not the other moron, Sarah.
