Musician John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen have announced a new addition to their family - a French bulldog named Penny who only has three legs.
"She's a little tripod. She has been abused, and we are so excited to welcome her to the family," Teigen, 28, told People at Spike TV's Guys' Choice Awards last Saturday.
In a series of tweets, Teigen went on to reveal a bit more about Penny saying:
I won't get too into it but let's just say her first family were buttheads and we are happy to shower her with love for the rest of time!— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) June 8, 2014
She is such a little light of energy and I can't wait to meet her tonight. John on a plane with her now!— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) June 8, 2014
