Celebrity Couples Who Adopted Pets Together: Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra and More

As many stars’ relationships blossom, they often decide to take the next step and expand their blended brood with a new pet.

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who wed in December 2018, have three rescue dogs.

Chopra Jonas, who adopted Diana before her marriage, gifted Jonas with Gino in November 2019 for their first anniversary. One year later, they adopted a Husky Australian Shepard mix named Panda.

Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar, for their part, adopted a pair of Akita dogs in December 2020.

“Puppies are harder [than kids],” Prinze Jr. exclusively told Us Weekly. “Like [with] the kids you go, ‘OK, when they’re older, if I’m nice to them, they’re going to take care of me.’ Dogs, you’re, like, man, when they’re older, then I will take care of them more.”

Prinze Jr. and Gellar — who wed in September 2002 — surprised daughter Charlotte and son Rocky, born in 2009 and 2012, respectively, with the canines. “We did Christmas a little bit early,” Prinze Jr. told Us. “We got the kids a trampoline ‘cause we had the space. And then the ultimate [gift was], we got puppies.”

“Meet Mark & my newest addition Rose,” the Queer Eye personality captioned a July 2022 Instagram snap with the canine.  “My heart has been heavy since as you maybe or maybe not have guessed we had to rehome our Pablo earlier this year. We love him so much but with his temperament and my traveling & being around so many people made Pablo miserable.”

The hairstylist added: “Luckily we have great friends who have taken Pablo and he is so so happy & thriving. … I called @safeinaustinrescue and asked Jamie if she had any pups who needed a home and she said yes ❤️ Remember Safe in Austin isn’t an adoption shelter, but rather a therapeutic shelter for animals and therapy place for people.”
