Bristol Palin has been front and center in the news in recent days since word of her ex-fiance Dakota Meyer's so-called win in family court hit the media. Although some believe this means Bristol Palin has lost custody of daughter Sailor Grace--that's not the case. Instead, Meyer filed for interim visitation and interim joint custody of the two-month-old baby--and both were granted.

In a new development, Dakota Meyer has filed for "expedited consideration of visitation," which is a move to see the baby sooner rather than later.

Bristol Palin and Dakota Meyer announced their engagement back in March of 2015. They planned to marry in May. Just days ahead of the nuptials, former Alaska governor and Vice Presidential hopeful Sarah Palin announced the wedding was off.

Bristol Palin hasn't officially confirmed that Sailor Grace's father is Dakota Meyer, but the media took his posting of her holding the newborn baby as confirmation enough.

"Best Christmas present ever!! I couldn't be more proud of this little blessing," Meyer captioned this picture of the newborn baby girl in Bristol Palin's arms.

Bristol Palin and the father of her first child, son Tripp Johnston, reached an agreement to co-parent the seven-year-old last week, too. She and Levi Johnston have taken steps to share custody of the little boy. Sarah Palin announced Bristol's first pregnancy when she was running for VP alongside John McCain in 2008.

Levi Johnston shared some words of wisdom to fathers fighting for their co-parenting rights that Dakota Meyer might very well heed.

"I want to say that even though fathers in this country don't usually have the upper hand in court, I encourage every father to never give up on fighting to keep their kids in their life," he said. "It's always worth it."

Hopefully Bristol Palin is learning to share, because it seems that's exactly what she'll soon be doing with both of her children.

Do you expect Bristol will accept these rulings or will she head to court to protest sharing her children with their fathers?
