ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Levi Johnston is going for the ultimate exposure – the 19-year-old father of Sarah Palin’s grandchild will pose nude for Playgirl, his attorney said Wednesday.
To get ready for his close-up, Johnston is training three hours a day, six nights a week at an Anchorage gym with a local body builder.
A formal agreement hasn’t been reached with the online magazine, but the photo shoot is a “foregone conclusion,” said Johnston’s attorney, Rex Butler.
Johnston fathered a son with Bristol, the 18-year-old daughter of Sarah Palin, the former Republican vice presidential candidate who resigned as Alaska’s governor in July.
Just after Sen. John McCain chose Palin as his running mate in August 2008, Johnston was thrust into the national spotlight when Palin announced her unwed daughter was pregnant and the couple would marry.
The couple broke up after the birth of their son, Tripp, in December.
The relationship between the Palins and Johnston since then has often been strained, mostly over visitation issues.
Palin’s representatives did not respond to a request for comment on the Playgirl job.
