Speaking to People magazine, the young dad said, I publicly said things about the Palins that were not completely true. I have already privately apologized to Todd and Sarah. Since my statements were public, I owe it to the Palins to publicly apologize."

Bristol Palin gave birth to her and Johnstons son Tripp in December 2008, which became a major issue during her mothers' vice presidential campaign, launched that year with Republican presidential candidate John McCain.

In the past Johnston has made several accusations about the Palins that have raised a few eyebrows. All the time Bristol and I were together, Ive never seen them sleep in the same bedroom, he claimed about the Sarah and Todd Palin in a 2009 Vanity Fair interview. There was a lot of talk of divorce in that house& Todd would say, All right, do you want a divorce? Is that what you want? Lets do it! Sign the papers!

Johnston says in the statement, So to the Palin family in general and to Sarah Palin in particular, please accept my regrets and forgive my youthful indiscretion. I hope one day to restore your trust."

Bristol Palin, who recently enjoyed filming a guest spot on ABC Family's teen series The Secret Life of the American Teenager released a statement in response saying, Tripp one day needs to know the truth and needs to know that even if a mistake is made the honorable thing to do is to own up to it."
