Deena Nicole is welcoming a new addition into her family, only it’s not what you think. The star announced on Twitter earlier today (October 22) that she and boyfriend Chris Buckner are shopping around for a new puppy.

“So excited about looking at puppies tonight with chris my mom and his mom :) yay,” Deena wrote.

So, does she want a girl pup or a boy pup? “I'm keeping an open mind,” Deena told a fan who asked her that very question. Always a good idea when you are looking for a dog!

Are you happy that Deena and Chris are getting a dog together? Do you think this is a sign of things to come for the loved up couple?
