After months and months of anticipation, Miley Cyrus’ new album has finally been released. However, among all the success she’s experienced during the last few weeks, the singer also recently went through a breakup with her fiance, Liam Hemsworth.

Luckily, the good seems to be outweighing the bad in the 20-year-old’s life, which she made clear during an appearance on TODAY Monday, and was reiterated by her father, Billy Ray Cyrus.

“All I know for sure is I heard my daughter say today that she’s the happiest she’s ever been in her life immediately following [the breakup],” he told Entertainment Tonight. “That’s when I saw Miley being so happy. Somewhere along the stress and strain of different things, I didn’t see her smiling as often for a little while, and all of a sudden she’s like the sun, and when she smiles, it’s light. Everything happens for a reason and the main thing for me, as Miley’s daddy, is she’s happy.”

Take that, Liam!
