He’s a dad again!
Levi Johnston – best known as the ex of Bristol Palin – welcomed a baby girl on September 12 with his new girlfriend, Sunny Oglesby.
The little one was born at Mat-Su Regional Medical Center in Alaska at 5:28 AM, weighing a healthy 6 pounds 15 ounces and measuring 19 inches.
She’s the first daughter and second child for Levi, who fathered son Tripp by Palin three years ago.
Levi announced back in May that he and Oglesby already had a name picked out for their daughter, and despite widespread criticism, he didn’t back down.
The newborn is named Breeze Beretta, after an Italian handgun.
In all fairness, we have to remember that parents have various reasons for choosing the names they do. When moms name their children Chandler, Taylor or Cooper, they don’t actually hope that their offspring will grow up to make candles, stitch clothing or build barrels. So one can hope that Johnston and Oglesby just liked the lighthearted sound of their child’s name, and that they don’t expect her to become a prodigy gun pro (at least, not until she’s old enough to handle firearms safely).
Johnston and Palin’s problems have been well documented, and the tension between them continues; Johnston apparently is filing for custody of Tripp. But he’s said that while this pregnancy wasn’t planned, he’s delighted about both the baby and his relationship with Oglesby. “I’m actually in love, not just doing it because we have a child together,” he says.
For little Breeze’s sake, we do hope he’s being truthful.
All the best to the new parents and their tiny daughter. (And remember, Breeze – Pilot Inspektor and Moxie Crimefighter seem to be doing just fine so far.)
