How to Watch

After first announcing that she adopted a Brussels Griffon named Ruby Rose over the holiday season, D’Andra is revealing how thankful she is to have the precious pooch as part of the family. In a precious photo posted on January 21, D’Andra can be seen holding the adorable dog in her arms.

“My sweet baby Ruby is turning 4 months old!” she wrote in the caption of the picture. “She’s been such a blessing through the hardships I’ve endured the past few weeks.”

D’Andra has overcome a number of health-related issues over the past couple of months. She underwent ankle replacement surgery in December, shortly before welcoming Ruby into her household. ““I couldn’t have asked for a better present than a new baby #brusselsgriffon doggie! She will be keeping me company as I heal from my ankle replacement and foot surgery,” she explained on Instagram at the time. “Ruby truly couldn’t have come at a better time in my life! “

Later that month, D’Andra was also briefly hospitalized after testing positive for COVID-19. She returned home just in time for New Year’s Eve, taking to Instagram to write, ”Yay, this is the BEST New Year’s Eve night I could have ever imagined. I’m so happy to be home and with my #hotthubby @jeremytlock again!”
