Cute Alert: ‘DWTS’ Winner Kellie Pickler’s Hubby Surprises Her With A Puppy

Kellie Pickler may have taken home the coveted Mirrorball Trophy last night, but this morning she got a way more cuddly prize.

Dancing With The Stars victor Kellie hit GMA with her fellow finalists, and her hubby had a very sweet congratulatory video message waiting for her. What was in the message? Um — a puppy!

Kellie’s main squeeze, Kyle Jacobs, surprised her by holding up the precious little thing in all it’s fur-bellied glory. The pup was also wearing a fancy bow-tie. Jacobs praised his love’s dancing skills by saying:

“Baby, you won ‘Dancing With the Stars.’ I can’t believe it. You’ve never danced a minute in your life. You’ve been doing this for two and a half months and you just won ‘Dancing With the Stars.’ That is crazy. I’m so proud of you. I love you so much, and my little gift to you is this little devil right here. We should call him Tango, because you rocked the tango, let’s be honest.”

Professional dancer Derek Hough also had some kind words for his winning partner. He gushed, “She doesn’t dance or do anything athletic. So to see her come out and do that was phenomenal. It blew me away. And I was really happy to bring that out.”

Congrats, Kellie! Enjoy picking up after Tango for eternity the unconditional love of an adorable animal.
