Witney Carson has welcomed a new “baby” into her family — the fluffy and cuddly kind!

The Dancing with the Stars pro revealed Friday that she and her husband Carson McAllister added a puppy to their small family.

“We have a baby & she’s perfect,” Carson, 23, captioned the adorable Instagram picture of her hubby sitting in the car and holding the sleeping white pup in his arms.

In January, PEOPLE exclusively reported that the Mirrorball Trophy winner tied the knot with her high school sweetheart in a winter wonderland, three-part celebration on New Year’s Day.

“I’m just excited to start our lives together,” Carson, who exchanged rings with McAllister at a small religious ceremony before hosting a large dinner and reception at NOAH’s Event Center in Lindon, Utah, told PEOPLE.

Carson won the Mirrorball Trophy with Alfonso Ribeiro on the season 19 finale in 2014 and was most recently paired with Vanilla Ice on season 22. After being eliminated during week 4, Carson said of working with the rapper and HGTV star, “This guy is the most hardworking man that I have ever met in my entire life … He’s taught me so many things about life and positivity and raps.”

Dancing with the Stars airs Mondays (8 p.m. ET) on ABC.
