NEW YORK -- Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston say they're engaged and hope to get married within six weeks in Alaska.

Palin, the daughter of 2008 vice-presidential candidate and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, is featured on the cover of Us Weekly with Johnston, holding their 18-month-old son, Tripp.

Palin and Johnston tell the magazine they reconnected while working out a custody plan and became engaged two weeks ago.

Sarah Palin and her husband, Todd, said in a statement on NBC's "Today" show Tuesday that they want what's best for their children and that Bristol believes in "redemption and forgiveness." Representatives for Palin did not immediately return messages from The Associated Press seeking comment.

Johnston recently acknowledged telling lies about the Palin family after he and Bristol broke up last year. He says he's apologized.
