“My first pooch. Everyone say hi to Geronimo,” the singer Tweeted April 18, sharing a photo of the adorable pup sitting in his lap.

Days after announcing the dog’s arrival, he shared another pic of Geronimo sleeping on a blanket. He wrote, “I’ve turned into that guy that tweets pics of his dog.”
Welcome to the club!
