(Newser) – Is there still hope for a Bristol Palin-Levi Johnston reunion? Maybe, Johnston tells ABC in an interview airing today on Good Morning America. "We’ll just remain friends for now. We’re both cool with that decision, and we’ll see," says the teen, who cites "me not being mature enough" as one reason for the break-up. It’s possible fatherhood will change that; Johnston says he is "growing up a lot."

"I don’t do a lot of things I used to anymore, I’ll tell you that," he says. "I’d give anything for Tripp, to be with him. There are a lot of changes when you’re a father, when you hold him for the first time, you know."
