There's a new member of the Clarkson-Blackstock family! No, not that little one
, but a new dog.
"Everyone ....this is our new little puppy Wyatt," Kelly Clarkson
, 31, Tweeted
on Friday, introducing her brown-haired pooch. "He can't replace my Joplin that passed away but he's pretty great!"
The singer and mom-to-be lost dog Joplin
last November, announcing on Twitter, "He fought his whole life to survive & now he can rest. I loved him."
In the months since, Clarkson has been prepping for the birth
of her first child, with husband Brandon Blackstock
, and it seems Wyatt has been helping with that, too.
"He loves to be held like a baby," she wrote alongside another photo of the pup, "which is great practice for me."
