Gino D'Acampo has melted fans' hearts by introducing the newest member of his family – a puppy named Snoop.
The Italian celebrity chef shared an adorable video on Instagram showing him presenting the pooch to his little girl.
The clip showed Gino crouched on the floor with the black and brown pup, while eight-year-old Mia sat blindfolded on the sofa.
"Do you remember what I said to you, that I had a late Christmas present?" he said.
"Sorry about the blindfold but it's the only one I could find in your mum's bedroom!"
"Tell me when you are ready," he went on.
Mia then said she was ready to see her surprise and excitedly ripped off her blindfold.
Looking stunned, she dropped to the ground to stroke the little dog.
"No you didn't! No you didn't! Oh my God!" she squealed as she cuddled her new four-legged friend.
"What do you think?" asked the cook, 45. "His name is Snoop, do you like him?"
I love him," Mia gasped, giving her dad a kiss to say thank you.
Fans flocked to the comments section to say what a sweet gift it was and how charmed they were by Gino's thoughtful gesture.
TV star Fearne Cotton posted: "This is pure joy! You are such a lovely dad."
Top Gear's Paddy McGuinness said it was "fantastic", while another fan wrote: "What a dad!"
"How cute is this!!" one follower wrote, while another said they now wanted a dog just like Snoop.
"How beautiful… Enjoy this beautiful new member of the family," said another.
One person joked: "Why can't someone do this for me?"
TV star Gino has been married to his wife Jessica Stellina Morrison for 20 years.
He has three children – Mia and sons Luciano, 20, and Rocco, 17.
