There’s a new pitter patter of little feet at Kellie Pickler’s home – but not that kind.
“Me & Peanut,” the Dancing with the Stars champ Tweeted on Sunday, sharing a photo of her furry friend captioned #MyNewPup.
Pickler and her husband, Kyle Jacobs, are already pet parents to a menagerie of animals, including a number of dogs, a cat and a snake.
After she took home the mirror ball trophy in May, Jacobs surprised Pickler with a white furball whom he suggested they name Tango in honor of her achievement. While we’re not sure, it seems the former American Idol may have wanted to name her new mutt Peanut instead.
