Think Ricki Lake only has her two sons at home? You're in for a surprise.
"This is my daughter Jeffie," Lake, 43, says in a video
introducing her 8-year-old goldendoodle
. "She's shy."
"My son Owen named her Jeffie after Jeff from The Wiggles
," she says. "He was 2 years old and he was obsessed."
Lake will be returning to daytime television this fall as the host of The Ricki Lake Show
, and Jeffie, along with canine sibling Pacha, may be joining their mom for appearances on the small screen.
