Bristol Palin's custody drama takes most unexpected turn to date: Co-parental bliss with baby daddy Dakota Meyer

In the melodrama of Palin and Meyer's custody battle, no one could have seen this twist coming

It's been a tumultuous journey for Bristol Palin and her baby daddy Dakota Meyer.

The two met in 2013, became engaged at a Rascal Flatts concert in March 2015, called off said engagement in May 2015, and announced their pregnancy a month later. Palin gave birth to a girl, Sailor Grace, on Dec. 23.

This drama lingered into the early months of Sailor's life after Meyer pushed for child support and joint custody in January. Palin then made him take a paternity test -- a bizarre move for someone so heavily subsidized by teen abstinence non-profit, The Candie's Foundation.

Yada yada yada, Meyer passed the paternity test and gained joint custody.

Now, having travelled each of the Alaska State Supreme Court's routes for parental bickering, Palin and Meyer are evidently #coparenting more than amicably.

According to "court docs" obtained by TMZ, Palin even signed off on Meyer's petition to change their daughter's name from Sailor Grace Palin to Sailor Grace Palin Meyer.

"We're told both Bristol and Dakota are committed to co-parenting and getting along," TMZ reported. "They even spent Mother's Day together in Alaska."
