The boyfriend of Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's unwed, pregnant daughter will join the family of the Republican vice presidential candidate at the GOP convention in St. Paul, Minn.
Levi Johnston's mother said her 18-year-old son left Alaska on Tuesday morning to join the Palin family at the convention. The boy's mother, Sherry Johnston, said that there had been no pressure put on her son to marry 17-year-old Bristol Palin and that the two teens had made plans to wed before it was known she was pregnant. "This is just a bonus," Johnston said.
