BIIG DEX,” he wrote in reference to Dexter’s white patch of fur. Mother-to-be Gigi Hadid also took to the comment section to gush over the latest addition to the family. “My nephew A VERY GOOD BOY DEXTO FROM ABOVE”

The British-Albanian and the part-Palestinian duo began dating in 2019 and celebrated their one-year anniversary this June. They were first linked in the summer of 2019 when they were spotted at the British Summer Time Music Festival in London and later stepped out together at New York Fashion Week in September 2019. Two months later, they made their red carpet debut at the American Music Awards.
The couple has been enjoying spending time quarantined together due to restrictions on movement amid the pandemic. In an interview, Lipa told Good Morning Britain “Both my boyfriend and I are quite used to making anywhere a home. We travel a lot, so this is fine. It’s been really, really good. We’re good at doing our things, then coming together when we want to watch a movie or play a game or do some painting or go on our daily walk.”
Ever since the onset of the pandemic, there has been a huge increase in adoptions worldwide. The New Rules singer isn’t the only musician who has added a furry friend to her family during quarantine. Billie Eilish also adopted one of the pitbull puppies she was fostering in April, Megan Thee Stallion welcomed a puppy named Dos, and Selena Gomez expanded her furry family with a pup named Daisey.
