Reese Witherspoon and her family have welcomed a cute new addition just weeks after the death of their beloved dog Pepper.

The actress, 44, who famously played Elle Woods in Legally Blonde, was left heartbroken when her pet pooch Pepper died last month.

Pepper had featured heavily on Reese’s social media and the star was inundated with supportive messages from her celebrity pals, including Laura Dern and Julianne Moore, following her dog’s death.

Reese is also a dog mum to a bulldog called Lou and a labrador called Hank and just weeks after losing Pepper, she and her family have now welcomed yet another pup into their home.

Taking to Instagram, Reese introduced their newest member, an adorable black and white puppy called Minnie Pearl.

She captioned her cute post: ‘Introducing Minnie Pearl. Welcome to the family little one ❤️.’

Reese also shared footage of Minnie Pearl settling into her home to her Instagram story, while playing Stevie Wonder hit Isn’t She Lovely playing in the background.

News of Minnie’s arrival comes after Reese was seen paying tribute to Pepper.

Sharing a sweet snap of Pepper, Reese wrote: ‘Our sweet Pepper passed away yesterday. My goodness, she was such a loyal and devoted family member.

‘I am so heart broken, but I am also deeply grateful for all the love and comfort she brought our family. Now she’s in dog heaven where all great pets go.

Chasing tennis balls, running through open fields of wild flowers and being the Queen that she is. That’s what I believe. 🎾🌸 👑. We will always love you Pepper.’

The star’s daughter Ava, 21, who she shares with ex Ryan Phillippe, revealed that Pepper had been battling an aggressive cancer and had taken a ‘turn for the worst’.

Ava penned: ‘Today is a tough day. Our sweet girl, Pepper, passed away last night from an aggressive cancer, which she’d been battling for months now. Just when we thought she was getting better, things took a turn for the worst, and she passed peacefully, surrounded by those who love her.’
