Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston Break Off Engagement

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's teenage daughter and the father of her baby have broken off their engagement.

Levi Johnston says the two 'mutually' decided 'a while ago' to end their relationship, but declined to elaborate what may have gone wrong with Bristol.

Eighteen-year-old Bristol Palin says in a statement that she is 'devastated', so it certainly doesn't sound like it was 'mutual' on her end.

After being thrust into the spotlight last summer with her pregnancy revealed just days after Sarah Palin was named John McCain's running mate on the Republican presidential ticket, Bristol said they were planning to marry after she finished high school: "Eventually, we'd like to get married. We're focusing on, like, getting through school and just getting an education and stuff, getting a career going."

While Levi claimed: "We both want to marry each other and that's what we are going to do. We were planning on getting married a long time ago with or without the kid."

However, in a recent interview with Fox, Bristol called her mother's stance on abstinence "not realistic at all" and said, "I hope people learn from my story. It's so much easier if you're married, have a house and career. It's not a situation you want to strive for."

It's not as if no one saw this coming. Levi -- a hockey player who dropped out of high school to take a job as an apprentice electrician, which he later quit after eligibility questions surfaced -- made his feelings clear in a private MySpace post when Bristol was five months pregnant, saying "I don't want kids."

The break-up comes less than three months after the birth of their baby, Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston.
