    Well, look who's happy about the new lady in Levi Johnston's life.

    A source told us that Levi, 20, has been dating day-care instructor Sunny Oglesby, 19, for two months since meeting through mutual friends (they're "in a relationship" on Facebook!) and Sunny can't wait to meet her guy's little guy.

    And Bristol Palin thinks that's just great!

    READ: If we ignore the Palins, will they go away?

    "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 exclusively 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!" she added.

    Well, according to our source, Bristol won't be disappointed.

    "She said she's so excited to meet Tripp," the source says. "He's been in Los Angeles with Bristol for the past few months and [Sunny] can't wait to meet him when they get back to Alaska."

    Tripp's mom was busy doing Dancing With the Stars.

    According to her Facebook page, which boasts a profile pic of her and Levi sharing a smooch, Sunny is from Oregon but currently resides in Wasilla and teaches at Big Lake Elementary School.

    A nice small-town girl who works with kids? We urge Levi to hang onto this one if he's really serious about that run for mayor.
