(Newser) – Bristol Palin's husband-to-be is a self-described "redneck" hockey player who "doesn't want kids," according to his MySpace page. High school senior Levi Johnston has been dating the 17-year-old daughter of John McCain's new running mate for a year, and the teen's pregnancy was no secret in Wasilla, Alaska, reports the New York Daily News. The Wasilla Warriors coach describes Johnston, 18, as "a good kid."

Alaska records show Johnston paid $370 bail last year for snagging salmon out of season. "I live to play hockey. I like to go camping and hang out with the boys, do some fishing," Johnston wrote on his MySpace page, which has been yanked off the web. He describes himself as in a relationship, but under a section asking about children, he wrote: "I don't want kids."
