Sleeping beauty! The cookbook author snapped a selfie while Pearl snoozed away.

Pearl has plenty of playmates in her new abode: the couple's 5-year-old daughter Luna and their 3-year-old son Miles.

The pair also have two rescue dogs: poodle Petey and three-legged French bulldog Penny.

"Penny is obsessed with her so it’s been fun watching the adventures of penny and pearl unfold," noted the mom-of-two.

The new addition comes two weeks after the brood had to say goodbye to their beloved French bulldog Pippa, who passed at age 10.

"I remember picking her up in Gainesville and documenting our trip home. She was a sassy broad - loved her pearl necklace and never took s**t from ANY new dog we brought in," Teigen revealed in a tribute post. "Our road dog with Sade, a tour dog for years. we loved her so much. We love you sweet girl. I know you’re giving puddy hell up there. Thank you for giving us your whole life."

The Lip Sync Battle host revealed that Pearl's name is a "tribute" to Pippa. "You were always an iconic, different lady when your pearls were on," she quipped of her late pooch. "I’ll never forget when they shattered in front of you and you sunk into a funk for weeks until we got you a new one lol."
