“I don’t know if I’m happier for Nicole Kidman getting a dog or for the dog that’s getting a Nicole Kidman,” one fan wrote.

“Nothing better. This little fluff ball will love you like no other,” another user said.

In addition to caring for her new pet, Kidman is a mom to daughters Sunday Rose, 11, and Faith Margaret, 8, with husband Keith Urban. The actress also shares son Connor and daughter Isabella Jane with ex-husband Tom Cruise.

The new addition to the family comes after Kidman attended Giorgio Armani Privé’s fall/winter showcase during Paris Fashion Week and sat in the front row between Urban, 51, and her TV-husband Alexander Skarsgård.

Photographers caught her not only holding Urban’s hand but also affectionately placing her hand on Skarsgård’s knee.
