American Idol alum Jordin Sparks has four new reasons to say, “Squee!” Her dog Maggie gave birth to a litter of puppies last week, and she named them Millie, Molly, Maddee and Minnie.
The singer has been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the quartet for weeks, frequently Tweeting photos of the expectant mother, including one shot of Maggie’s doggie ultrasound.
In a Tweet on Thursday, Sparks said that Minnie was “the runt,” of the litter. “Wook how wittle she is,” she said of another pup whose eyes were still sealed shut. We’re excited to see more milestones from this bunch in the weeks to come!
