Chrissy Teigen and John Legend have added another member to their family!
On Sunday (January 5), the married couple became a family of five with the addition of a furry friend. “This is petey! another little heart in this house to love,” the model shared on social media with a video clip of their adorable new pooch, whom they recently adopted with help from Ellen DeGeneres. “The name petey brought to you buy dumb and dumber,” she said of the pup, who was named after the parakeet in the film Dumb and Dumber. “He’s a standard poodle and if he’s anything like his dad, he will be the biggest caramel Gumby ever seen.”
As the Cravings author revealed on Instagram, the couple adopted Petey after DeGeneres spread awareness about The Wagmore Pet Hotel & Spa — an animal daycare organization that handles boarding, grooming, and rescuing animals — that was in dire need of funds and homes for the eight puppies they sheltered after rescuing a mother and father. “Thank you @theellenshow and @wagmorpets for making us aware of this adorable little rescue family. this little guy grabbed our heart first and will hold onto it forever!” she wrote in an Instagram Story.
Along with Petey, Legend and Teigen are also the parents of two children — 3-year-old daughter Luna Simone Stephens, and 1-year-old son Miles Theodore Stephens.
