Bristol Palin Poses with Daughter Sailor Grace and Ex-Fiancé Dakota Meyer After Child Support Victory
brightcove.createExperiences(); Hours after former fiancé Levi Johnston was ordered by a judge to pay $61,915.20 in back child support for their 7-year-old son, Tripp, Bristol Palin shared a happy Instagram pic.
The 25-year-old mother for two posed with 5-month old daughter Sailor Grace and her second ex-fiancé Dakota Meyer in the black and white pic – with a picturesque Alaskan mountain skyscrape in the background.
“Baby daddy BFF,” Palin captioned the photo – perhaps suggesting their ongoing custody discussions are going much smoother than Johnston’s did.

Palin and Meyer currently have joint legal and physical custody of their child. In March, an Alaskan judge ruled Meyer, who lives in Kentucky, could visit his daughter twice a month for four consecutive days. Earlier this month, Palin agreed to have Dakota’s last name changed to Meyer, after the 27-year-old Marine Corps vet filed a court petition.
Previously, Palin’s lawyer told PEOPLE the two are “talking directly and just being parents without involving the lawyers.”
Johnston was finally awarded joint custody of son Tripp in February after filing a petition in 2013. The 26-year-old shared the news on his Facebook page.
“I’m so happy to have my son in my life, and to put all of this back in (sic) forth in the courts behind me,” he said. “It might have taken me 7 years and cost me around $100,000 in lawyer fees, spread out among 3 different lawyers, as well as a lot of patience, but it was all worth it.”
“These babies are my world and I will always be doing what is best for them,” Palin responded in a supportive Instagram post after the February ruling.
“Every child deserves two loving parents, so I will continue to encourage that no matter what. I have never, and will never, keep them from having a positive relationship with their fathers. I did not ‘lose’ any custody case – my son has always spent most of his time with me and he will continue to do so, he is happy, healthy, and knows both of his parents love him. Matthew 5:11.”
