Josiah Carter's family just got a little bigger. The Below Deck alum announced that he and his boyfriend, Michael Groves, are "officially parents" to their new dog, River.

How to Watch

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

Josiah, who appeared as a stew in Season 6 of Below Deck, shared the happy news in a post on Instagram on December 27. "WE’RE OFFICIALLY PARENTS!! Earlier than planned this little ball of fluff joined our family today!" Josiah wrote in the post, which featured a collection of photos of him and his new fur baby. "Everyone meet 'River' our lovely Sproodle (Springer Spaniel x Poodle)."

Lucky for us, those aren't the only photos we'll be seeing of Josiah's new pup. Josiah also revealed that he has already started an Instagram account for River, which is giving us a "cuteness overload" right from the start, according to the very first post.

The first photos on River's Instagram account show him enjoying the holiday season in his home in the U.K., including how much he loves playing in some fresh snow.

Josiah will sail back onto our screens in the new Bravo series Below Deck Galley Talk premiering Friday, January 1 at 7/6c. Check out a sneak peek, below.
