MAFS' Jessika Power gushes over new family member: 'Cuddles and kisses'

After relocating from the Gold Coast to Manchester last year, Married At First Sight star Jessika Power looks to be putting down some serious roots in the UK.

So much so, the reality TV veteran and her boyfriend, Connor Thompson, have welcomed a brand new addition to their family in the form of a tiny dachshund puppy.

Jessika introduced the adorable pup to her Instagram followers on Saturday, sharing a cute video of the blue-eyed pooch on her lap on the drive home.

"He's a bit scared, we're going to let him rest," she cooed.

Jess explained that she'd got Sushi from 'a friend' who breeds dogs and that she was looking forward to 'infinite puppy cuddles and kisses'.

Once home, the OnlyFans star shared several sweet videos of her four-legged 'baby' exploring his new surroundings and snuggling on the couch.

Proud 'dog parent' Jess was thrilled to share that Sushi was already on his way to being toilet trained. Later, she shared an update video from bed, where she could hear Sushi's cries from his crate.

"We're going to start crate training him from very young so he knows to sleep in his crate but it's so sad!"

Podcast host Connor appears to be equally smitten with Sushi and has also uploaded clips of the six-week-old pup chewing a toy on his lap.

Jess goes dating

Jess' new pup comes after she made her official UK TV debut on the popular reality show, Celebs Go Dating which pairs celebrities with members of the public in the hopes of finding true love.

Jessika took to Instagram to show off the hot pink blazer-style dress with a jaw-dropping neckline that left the show's dating agents, Paul Carrick Brunson and Anna Williamson speechless.

"Wow! Eyes up, eyes up!" a flustered Anna remarked as the Aussie star walked into the room.

"How are you both?" the recent Big Brother VIP housemate asked the experts, prompting narrator Rob Beckett to quip, "Is she talking to her own chest?"

When Paul questioned if this was how Jessika normally dressed, she explained that she had actually borrowed the risqué outfit from fellow contestant Chloe Brockett.
