Jordin Sparks’s puppies are teething!
The American Idol alum has been relishing spending time with her dog Maggie’s litter of four babies, but the 5-week-old pups are growing fast.
“They’re getting their teeth and they’re starting to get a little stronger on their legs,” Sparks told PEOPLEPets.com at the ELLE Women in Music event on Monday. “They’re running around and biting each other and barking. They’re just so adorable. There’s nothing like puppies.”
Sparks, who has been excitedly Tweeting the progress of the puppies, from Maggie’s ultrasound to the newborns nursing, has already found homes for three puppies – Millie, Molly and Maddee. The runt, Minnie, will stay with Sparks.
“I just bonded with her,” she said.
And when Sparks is busy with other engagements, she won’t have to worry about who will take care of Maggie and her brood. “The good thing is that my mom and brother are at home when I’m gone, and they love dogs as much as I do,” Sparks said. “We’ve got it taken care of between the three of us.”
