Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have added to their family… with a new pet!
On June 12, the engaged couple took to social media to share the news that they've gifted J.Lo's son with ex Marc Anthony, Max, a puppy they've yet to name.
"Welcome to the fam, @tbdpupofficial! We got Max this adorable lil golden doodle and we haven't named him yet! ✨What should we name this cutie!? Tyson or Yankee? All will be revealed soon! 🐶," the actress captioned an Instagram video showing the adorable brown dog playing with Max.
At one point, the puppy got a little too excited and tinkled on his new human — between kisses and licks, Max can be heard saying, "I think he peed on me" — but the 12-year-old didn't seem to mind. Asked what he wanted to name the dog, he responded, "Something like 'Mike,'" which drew laughs. But Mike clearly isn't sticking.
Alex also shared the happy news on social media. "We surprised Max yesterday with a new puppy, a Goldendoodle. So cute, but there's one thing left to decide … his name! We are having a family debate and would love your help!" Alex captioned a family photo with the new dog, J.Lo, her two kids and his own dog, Lady, adding, "It's between these two names: Tyson or Yankee Doodle??? Let us know what you think! Thanks!" The retired Yankees slugger added the hashtags #LadyGotaBrother and #ImAGranddad."
The couple created an Instagram account for Max's dog that amassed more than 12.4 million followers in less than two days. In the bio, they called themselves grandparents: "Welcome to my official Pup Insta! 🐶 Woof Woof! I love my grandmama @JLo and granddaddy @arod."
Among the corny but sweet captions accompanied the cute pet pics? "Can't wait for this guy to teach me how to play [ball] ⚾️! 🐶," Alex wrote on one photo. "Me and my dad Max. We're already the best of buddies! 🐶," reads another snapshot of Max holding his new furball.
Yet another photo referenced "Auntie Emme," Max's twin sister: "I may be sleepy, but I sure do have the best Auntie in the world 🌎! 🐶," reads the caption.
