The Daily Dish Below Deck

Meet Kate Chastain's New "Whittle Baby"

See the new addition to the Below Deck chief stew's family.

By Laura Rosenfeld

Since Below Deck chronicles the crew's time at sea, we only really get to see what they get up to during the charter season, and we sometimes don't know much about their lives on land. Thankfully, we have social media, where the crew can always keep us up to date on their latest goings-on, and Kate Chastain just shared a major life update on Instagram. 

How to Watch

Watch Below Deck on Bravo Mondays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

Why, the Below Deck chief stew's family just got a little bigger! Kate shared in her Instagram Story on Sunday that she has brought a "whittle baby home," aka a new dog named Bodhi. And she did it all on #NationalDogDay, to boot!

We only caught an itsy bitsy glimpse of the little pup, as you can see in the below still, but we can already tell that he's absolutely adorable.

Kate has great taste in pets, after all. If you follow Kate on social media, you know that she's been dog mom to her Havanese, Halo, whom she rescued a couple of years ago.
