She uploaded a video of the blue-ish grey puppy running through grass, alongside a caption that read: “Welcome to the family”, with a blue heart emoji.

Now, she has provided her followers with another look at the adorable pup, with a photo uploaded to her Instagram story.

In the photo, Kesselaar can be seen holding the dog as he sits in a cross body bag, which she has strapped to her chest. The puppy looks content as Kesselaar pouts as she takes a mirror selfie.

Again, Kesselaar used the blue heart emoji, which has led to fans wondering if the couple’s dog may be named Blue.

Kesselaar is the long-term girlfriend of Newcastle defender Botman, who has been a key player for the Magpies in their recent rise to the top end of English football.

The 23-year-old Netherlands international has not kicked a ball for Eddie Howe’s side since their remarkable 8-0 away win over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Sunday, September 24.

In that time he missed the 1-0 Carabao Cup victory over treble-winners Manchester City, as well as a Premier League win over Burnley, draw at West Ham United, the 4-1 demolition of Champions League giants Paris Saint-Germain.

Head coach Howe does hope to have Kesselaar’s other half back in action soon, though.

In a recent press conference, he told the media: "We were missing some big players today and that makes the recent games all the more positive for us because when you’re stretched, you need the depth of your squad

.“I think we’ve shown that. The players that have come in have been brilliant for us but I thought we missed Joelinton. We’ve definitely missed Joe Willock for such a long time. Sven [Botman], Anthony [Gordon], these players can make a difference, especially in a tight game when we’re fatigued and 2-1 up.

“That’s something we need to look at and hopefully we can get those players back in the next two weeks.”
