Russell Wilson and Ciara have got a new pet dog.

The couple have opened their home up to a beautiful silver grey puppy who they hope will act as best friend to the children they raise together, son Future, three, and 10-month-old daughter Sienna.

Russell, 29, unveiled the majestic mutt on his Instagram account by posting a photograph of him cuddling the pooch to his 3.3 million followers.

The Seattle Seahawks quarterback captioned the snap: ''New Pup Alert!!! Welcome to the Wilson Family! [sic]''

Russell must be followed by an abundance of animal lovers as the photo has been liked almost 200,000 times.

The addition of a pet to the family is a further sign that the sportsman and Ciara, 32, are settling into domestic bliss since tying the knot in 2016.

The 'Goodies' hitmaker has made no secret of the fact that her husband Russell inspires her in life and gives her belief that she can achieve anything.

She said: ''Love conquers all. Love is the most powerful force on Earth. You can't go wrong if you put love in.''

Previously paying tribute to Russell on Instagram, Ciara said of her man: ''I love you so much ... You inspire me ... I am grateful for the man that you are to our house, the father that you are to our kids, the lover that you are. You inspire me to be better. You make me a better woman. I am a better woman because of you. You make me want to figure out ways to love in a way that I never knew I could but I sure want to try hard as heck to make you happy because you make me feel so good ... You are the best to me.''
