After teasing fans with a photo of himself holding a onesie-shaped balloon with the words “It’s a Baby Boy” printed on it, Bones finally revealed that the new addition to his family was an adorable English Bulldog puppy.

Bones was all smiles when he introduced the wrinkled little pup to the world on Instagram with a photo and a simple caption reading, “Say hello to my little friend…”

He later revealed the puppy’s name, explaining that it comes from one of his all-time favorite TV shows.

“Meet “Stanley,” he wrote. “Named after one of my favorite characters of The Office… saw him and that’s who he looked like to me. So that’s his name.”

Stanley joins Bones’ family a little over a year after his beloved dog, Dusty, passed away. Dusty was Bones’ trusty sidekick and was 14-years-old at the time of his death.

It’s been quite a summer for Bobby Bones.

Additionally, Bones co-hosted CMA Fest, which is set to air on ABC next month. He will also appear on the July 21 episode of Family Feud on ABC.
