It's not just her chart position that's got Iggy Azalea celebrating—the hip hop artist has welcomed a new puppy into her life.

The 24-year-old rapper shared pictures of her beloved new pet via Instagram on Monday, June 30, and revealed her tiny pup has an enormous showbiz name.

"Shrinkabull jam don't shake like that Jelli," the "Fancy" hitmaker captioned her first picture of her cute little pup, "but you can call her Jelli, for short," she added.

Azalea took to twitter on Thursday, June 26, to first announce the new addition to her life. "I'm a puppy mother now. It's a girl," she wrote excitedly.

And now that the Australian-born musician has returned to Los Angeles following a string of gigs and festivals across the world, Azalea is enjoying some bonding time with her new pup.

The star still holds the Number One and Number Two spots on the Billboard Hot 100 music chart, with her single "Fancy”, and Ariana Grande's "Problem," featuring Iggy Azalea.

"It's a lot of pressure to have another good song," Azalea told iHeartRadio, laughing, during her recent Pool Party performance in Miami. "It's really cool. Yeah. It's a good problem to have."
