and John Legend
are ready to give all of themselves – to their new puppy.
The Sports Illustrated
swimsuit model and "All of Me" crooner have adopted another furry friend: a three-legged black French bulldog named Penny. (Check her out below!)
"She's a little tripod. She has been abused, and we are so excited to welcome her to the family," Teigen, 28, told PEOPLE at Spike TV's Guys' Choice Awards
And there was a reason her main man wasn't in attendance: Legend planned to bring Penny home from South Carolina on Sunday. The appropriately P-named pup joins the couple's two other bulldogs, Pippa and Puddy
As for whether she plans to become more than just a puppy parent, Teigen played it coy.
"If dogs are the starters for babies, we should have three or four babies by now," she said. "I like to think of ourselves as working on babies all the time. And working on getting dogs all the time."
The Guys' Choice Awards air Wednesday at 9 p.m. on Spike TV.
