Taking to Instagram, the 51-year-old shared a video where she asks the snoozing pup, "Chesterfield, have you fallen asleep with your bone in your mouth? I think you have."

She captioned the video, "Hi! I’d like to introduce to you the newest member of our family…this is (a very tired) Lord Chesterfield. He stole my heart immediately. A HUGE thank you to @wagmorpets for the incredible work you do. Grateful you take such great care of these rescues and find them their forever homes."

Chesterfield joins fur-siblings Clyde, a Schnauzer mix, and Sophie, a white pitbull, who have been known to occasionally make cameos on the actress' Instagram.

Clyde made an appearance in March, encouraging Jennifer's followers to vote.

The star has frequently spoken of the importance of her pets and the “mothering” role she’s taken on.

Back in 2015, she told Allure that she doesn’t “like [the pressure] that people put on me, on women — that you’ve failed yourself as a female because you haven’t procreated. I don’t think it’s fair.

"You may not have a child come out of your vagina, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t mothering — dogs, friends, friends’ children.”

She has also previously referred to her dogs as "my kids" when she spoke about being forced to evacuate her Los Angeles home due to the 2017 wildfires.

“When we had to be evacuated in December for the wildfires, I took my dogs, I grabbed underwear, my toothbrush, and a change of clothes,” she told InStyle. “Just get my dogs and me out of here. They’re my kids!”
