Emily Maynard's Birthday Surprise for Daughter Ricki: a New Puppy!

Posted on

Emily Maynard’s house just got a whole lot furrier!

The former Bachelorette surprised her daughter Ricki with a puppy for her 8th birthday.

“The newest addition to our zoo,” reads the caption of an Instagram photo Maynard posted on Sunday showing Ricki greeting a pint-sized white pup adorned with balloons.

Ricki, joined by a party pal, looked elated, but there’s no word yet on what her 27-year-old mom’s cats, Holly and Safari, think of the new pet.

We’re predicting catfights in the near future. Why? In April, Maynard shared a pic from a dog-sitting gig and wrote, “It’s silly how much I love this dog. My cats are pissed.”

Welcoming a pet is an amazing experience – and a big decision! Before bringing a pet into your home it’s important to consider your family circumstances and do your research on breeds.
