Powell, Irwin’s fiancée, shared the news on Instagram on Tuesday, revealing a new puppy, who appears to be a Cavalier King Charles spaniel, to the world.

Irwin commented, “my heart is overwhelmed with so much happiness and love ❤️ here’s to the next incredible life chapter.”

Irwin later shared a photo of Piggy playing with her brother Robert’s pug, Stella, showing the two are already off to being best pals. Irwin captioned the photo, “my heart ❤️.”

Adopting Piggy is a first for the couple. Before this milestone, Irwin and Powell got engaged on Bindi’s 21st birthday in July.
