The Blurred Lines hitmaker split from Paula Patton, his wife of nine years, in February last year (14) and he has reportedly been dating 20 year old Geary since late 2014.

The couple has now moved the romance forward by adopting a puppy from a Los Angeles dog shelter. They took home a terrier mix called Bincy, and Geary has since shown off the new pet in a series of snaps posted on Instagram.com.

One of the pictures shows the dog perched on a mixing desk in a recording studio, with the caption, "#Puppymusicengineerintraining".
