James Middleton Just Introduced His New Puppy on Instagram (& She Has a ‘Lion King’ Name)

James Middleton’s (fur) family just got a little bit bigger: The 33-year-old is now father to a new puppy.

On Monday, the Duchess of Cambridge’s younger brother shared some snaps of the newest member of his clan, an adorable pooch named Nala. “Introducing Nala Middleton. She is daughter of Zulu & granddaughter of Ella,” he captioned an Instagram post. “I cannot wait to share many adventures with her and the rest of the pack.” Something tells us he's going to document this dog's every move.

He also made sure to leave a cryptic note at the end of his post writing, “(Ps more very exciting news to share soon).” Interesting.

According to his Instagram Story, Nala (who shares a name with a beloved female lion from The Lion King) is only ten weeks old. This isn’t Middleton's first rodeo when it comes to raising animals. He actually has a total of ten pets—including this latest addition—and has been an advocate for animals throughout his life.

In fact, he recently launched a dog food company called Ella & Co (named after Nala’s G-Ma obviously) and announced the news in a radio ad. The animal lover’s brand is offering freeze-dried raw food with healthy, natural ingredients.

On the website, Middleton describes Ella & Co as a "happiness and wellbeing company for dogs," noting that each serving will provide vitamins, proteins and natural nutrients for a balanced diet.

Welcome to the family, Nala! Now, if we could only figure out what the other exciting news is...
