USMagazine, Monday, January 24, 2011, 2:41pm (PST)

Bristol Palin's moving on from former fiance Levi Johnston -- but she's not spilling all the details.

During an appearance on KWHL's The Bob & Mark Show Friday, the former Dancing With the Stars finalist, 20, was asked if rumors she was dating a 20-year-old Alaska pipeline worker were true.

When the mom of two-year-old Tripp (with Johnston) played coy, the hosts of the radio show -- based in Anchorage -- suggested she answer by saying, "I'm seeing a guy and he's really great and Tripp loves him and we're having a really good time and we're really good friends."

Her reply? "Yeah, we can go with that," said Palin, who recently moved into a new five-bedroom home in Maricopa, Arizona. "I'm thrilled. I love the town that I live in. I love my house. Tripp's happy; he's healthy."

The daughter of former Alaska governor, Sarah Palin, was less shy when it came to bashing her ex, who she said has seen their son "at the most, three times" for "like four hours" since she finished her run on DWTS.

She also confirmed that she wants to change her tot's last name from Johnston to Palin.

"Yeah, I've asked Levi to do it many different times, just get it out of the way, just sign over his parental rights, but I don't know if he will or if he wants to right now," she said, adding that she's willing to live without his child-support payments. "I've asked him to do that many times – just say, 'Hey, look, let's just avoid this custody case that's been ongoing since Tripp was born just get it over with just sign over your rights.'"
