Uh oh. During a trip to visit his dad Levi in Alaska, Bristol Palin's son came down with a nasty case of meningitis. Not only that, but he had to be hospitalized for the infection, according to The Sun.

Levi Johnston's wife Sunny gave fans on updated on Tripp's illness on Instagram. "He was sick for days and was just getting worse, after taking him into the ER and running every test you can think of, he was diagnosed with viral meningitis," she wrote on Instagram. "His dad, mom and I and our families have been pushing him along to his recovery. He is doing much better now! Thank you all for the prayers and well wishes. It was so scary for us all!"

A source told The Sun that Tripp is now out of the hospital and will remain with his father in Alaska. Bristol herself has yet to speak out on her son's hospitalization.

Bristol and Levi split in 2020, and have been successfully co-parenting their son. In Sept. 2018, the former Teen Mom star opened up to Us Weekly about their relationship.

“We have the same common goal of what’s best for Tripp. It’s taken us a long time to get there, but we’re getting there,” Bristol said. “He’s definitely a part of it. Tripp goes back and forth to Alaska quite a bit, and Tripp will spend summers there. When Tripp has a long weekend from school, he’ll go there as well. They’ve got a good relationship, and he’s a great dad.”

We're sending lots of well wishes Tripp's way!
