James Middleton was supposed to be getting married this month.
But due to the COVID-19 restrictions, he and his fiancee Alizee Thevenet had to postpone their nuptials.
So the couple are instead the proud new parents to their latest fur baby, Nala Middleton.
Taking to Instagram on Monday, James, who has five other dogs and has credited his pups with helping him through the darkest depths of depression, announced the safe arrival of his latest addition, who was bred from one of his older Cocker Spaniels Zulu.
"Introducing Nala Middleton ❤️🐾 She is daughter of Zulu & granddaughter of Ella. I cannot wait to share many adventures with her and the rest of the pack 🐾," the 33-year-old penned, before teasing he would have "more exciting news to share soon."
While James didn't elaborate further about exactly what the exciting news could be, it could perhaps have something to do with his newly-launched happiness and wellness company for dogs, called Ella & Co, which provides frozen dried raw food for dogs.
The younger brother of Kate and Pippa Middleton also shared an album of photos of his beautiful new 10-week-old cocker spaniel, who boasts enormous green eyes and a fluffy chocolate-coloured coat, and it's fair to say we wish we could give her a cuddle.
James dubs himself a "dog dad" and is the proud owner of five other pups called Ella, Zulu, Inka, Luna and Mabel. The majority of his dogs are spaniels, except for Mabel who is a Golden Retriever.
Last year, the British entrepreneur spoke candidly about the positive impact his animals had on his depression.
"I recognise, too, the role my dogs — Ella, Inca, Luna, Zulu and Mabel — have played in my recovery. Ella, particularly, has been my constant companion for ten years and she's been with me to all my therapy sessions. In her own particular way, she has kept me going," James explained in the Daily Mail.
"As a result, Ella and I now volunteer with the Pets As Therapy charity and Ella is a fully-fledged therapy dog for PAT."
