Bristol Palin's ex-fiancé Dakota Meyer wants to see his daughter and wants to see her now. 

On Friday, the 27-year-old veteran filed a motion for interim visitation and interim joint legal custody of newborn Sailor Grace, the daughter he had with his former girlfriend. While proceedings are still underway for the joint legal custody he previously requested, he also filed a motion for expedited consideration of visitation to hurry the process and inevitably see the child. 

While Palin has never publicly called Meyer the father of 2-month old Sailor, her former fiancé shared a photo on social media of the baby in the hospital after her birth, calling her the "best Christmas present ever." 

The former pair announced their engagement in March 2015 and were scheduled to become husband and wife the following May. However, Palin's famous mother, former Vice Presidential hopeful Sarah Palin, announced on Facebook just days earlier that the wedding had been called off. Sailor was born seven months later. 

Their next court date is slated for March 30 for a trial setting conference.

While that custody battle continues to brew, Palin finally reached a parenting agreement with her other ex, Levi Johnston, who is father to her 7-year-old first son, Tripp Johnston

On Tuesday, Palin's former teenage beau took to Facebook to announce his happy news after nearly three years of back and forth in court. 

"I'm happy now to be successfully co-parenting," he wrote, signifying he had finally achieved equal custody. 

He also offered some inspirational words to other dad struggling legally to be in their children's lives. 

"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."

Hear that, Dakota?
