  • Saira Khan has welcomed a surprise new addition to her family during lockdown and it's just adorable.

    The Loose Women panelist celebrated turning 50 last week and it’s not just her age that has gone up – the number of her family members has too with the arrival of a new puppy called Vera.

    Saira uploaded some snaps to her Instagram to share the new arrival with her followers and she captioned them, ‘So can I now introduce you to the latest edition to our family – meet our #cavachon puppy Vera – she’s 8 weeks old and we are so in love with her. She completes our family. #dog #puppy #cavachon – thank you @sianrees_x and your mum Delyth for being the most perfect owners and giving Vera a loving start.’

    It is not yet known where the name inspiration came from but Saira could have taken inspiration from singer Vera Lynn who sang We’ll Meet Again during WW2 – and a pogniant song for the current world health crisis.

    What is the response to Saira Khan’s happy news?

    And showbiz pal Eamonn Holmes is among those to send her congratulations.

    ‘Congratulations guys . What a Special day and what a gorgeous looking Doggie ..Looking forward to Vera and Maggie meeting.’

    And fellow Loose Women stars Ayda Field added, ‘So cute!!!’ and Nadia Sawalha said, ‘OH MY GOD !!!!!!!!’

    And Saira’s children – daughter Amara and son Zach – are full of cuddles for their new pup.

    Fans are sure the new furry friend will bring them happiness during lockdown and beyond.

    I did it!! From 2nd Feb 2020 until today May 15th , I’ve been working hard with my PT @bradleysimmonds to fulfil a personal dream. I wanted to feel fit and fab at 50! I honestly can say today, right now, in this moment I am the happiest I have ever been in my life. I have my health, my family and friends and a birthday cake. The personal messages, the effort everyone has made, and the thoughtfulness has reduced me to tears. I am humbled, by the generosity that has been shown. Gifts sent through the post, left on the doorstep, handmade and all delivered on time. Calls from friends putting together zoom cards. I am blessed. I am grateful. I am humbled. I am a bloody blubbering wreck. Thank you 🙏🏽
