DUBAI: Meet Dexter, the adorable new puppy that British-Albanian hitmaker Dua Lipa and her partner part-Palestinian model and musician Anwar Hadid have adopted together.
This weekend, the “Physical” singer announced that she and Hadid adopted a dog from a Los Angeles-based animal rescue shelter, who they named Dexter.
The Grammy Award winning artist introduced the puppy to her 49.6 million Instagram followers, sharing several photos of their new "tiny best friend" snuggling up to the couple.
“Thank you @thelabellefoundation” Lipa wrote, “HE'S PERFECT.”
Anwar’s older sister, Gigi Hadid took to the comment section to gush over the latest addition to the family. “My nephew A VERY GOOD BOY DEXTO FROM ABOVE,” the mom-to-be commented.
The 25-year-old shared six pictures of their new pup wearing a blue sherpa sweater and a matching collar.
In one of the snaps, the new pup can be seen sandwiched between the pair. Lipa also shared an adorable picture of Dexter nuzzled inside a jean jacket.
Anwar, who is of Dutch and Palestinian descent, also took to Instagram to share photos of his new furry friend, writing “'Our spirit companion came to us with a big number 7 on his chest.. some things are meant 2 be! BIG DEX. (sic)”
The adoption comes just a couple of months after the couple celebrated their first anniversary together.
Taking to Instagram to pay tribute to her partner, The “New Rules” hitmaker wrote, “Nothing sweeter than 365 days being joint [sic] at the hip with you,” alongside a series of sweet snaps of Hadid.
Lipa and Hadid were first rumored to be a couple when they were spotted at a concert in Hyde Park, London, in July 2019 — and they soon made it Instagram official.
While the duo has kept things relatively lowkey, they have been spotted together a few times, including at the 2019 American Music Awards in November, which marked their first red carpet appearance together.
The couple recently spent a sun-drenched holiday in St. Lucia after months of self-isolation together at a London Airbnb.
They made their way back to the US last month, where they were spotted at Anwar’s mother Yolanda Hadid’s Pennsylvania farmhouse on several occasions.
