'Dancing with the Stars' finalist Bristol Palin wants to make one thing clear: She's hardly carrying a torch for Levi Johnston.

In fact, Palin -- who, in July, announced her sudden engagement to the father of her baby boy before abruptly breaking it off -- is now going out of her way to explain how thrilled she is that he's moved on.

"I have to be happy for Levi's new relationship because it sounds like his new girlfriend is influencing him to want to actually spend time with Tripp," Bristol, 20, tells E! News. "I sincerely appreciate her influence because [Levi] hasn't asked to see Tripp in over five months, so I'm happy for this new development!"

The new girlfriend, 19-year-old Sunny Oglesby, is "In a Relationship with Levi Johnston" on her Facebook page, which also features a photo of her kissing Palin's 20-year-old ex.
