Bristol Palin was hoping and pleading with her ex-fiancé Dakota Meyer to form some semblance of a relationship with their daughter, Sailor Grace, it was revealed in court documents.
She may be getting her wish, too, as the parents have come to an interim agreement over the visitation of their daughter.
Text messages between the two were revealed in court documents, obtained by the Daily Mail, showing the two of them having differing views of the situation.
"I want you to be a part of her life, from the bottom of my heart I do," Sarah Palin's daughter told Dakota in a January text message, saying there was nothing holding him back from seeing her.
The couple had been locked in a bitter custody battle over their daughter, who was born in December 2015.
Just last week, it was reported that Dakota had filed an emergency custody motion asking a judge to rule immediately on a temporary custody agreement.
Bristol opposed the motion saying that his demands would interfere with her consistent breastfeeding.
But, the newspaper reveals that Dakota will be able to see his daughter on March 19 with Bristol's supervision, under the newly-agreed upon arrangement. Dakota will now get to see Sailor every two weeks under the current agreement.
The agreement is the latest in the custody saga, much of which was played out in text messages.
"Please come see her soon," Bristol texted in January. "I know you're busy but I'd even meet you somewhere, she changes so much everyday, I don't want you to miss anything."
Dakota said his schedule would never prevent him from seeing Sailor but he wanted everything worked out.
"There's nothing on my end holding you back Dakota. I want you (and your family) to be in her life as much as possible," she wrote. "It's not about us, and I don't care if you hate me, put it aside and put her first.
"She grows everyday and everyday I literally just think about how much you're missing by not seeing her, so realize I'm not bs'ing you and I want you to be a part of her life, from the bottom of my heart, I do."
Dakota said, "I don't hate you Bristol I have no reason too [sic] but my hands are tied when I legally have no right to a child that is mine."
According to the court papers, Bristol had "repeatedly invited Mr. Meyer to see his daughter" but demanded that those visits didn't interrupt the breastfeeding schedule.
"It is in Sailor's best interest that breastfeeding continue and that Mr. Meyer's visitation be fashioned so that he may begin bonding with Sailor without disrupting her breastfeeding schedule," a court document said.
The news of an agreement comes just a week after she also settled a longtime custody battle with Levi Johnston, the father of her son Tripp, who is now 7 years old.
Levi said the custody battle cost him $100,000.
