Former Olympic swimmer Lisa Curry has welcomed an exciting new addition to her family – a new puppy.

The 58-year-old took to Instagram this week to share several adorable photos of her new pooch, named Mali, whom she shares with her second husband Mark Tabone, 54.

“Hi everyone! My name is Mali and I'm Lisa and Marks new fur baby,” Lisa wrote on Instagram alongside four adorable pics, which you can see below.

“I'm 7.5 weeks old and a kelpie. Am I cute or what!!”

Lisa revealed the dog's name is a combination of “Mark + Lisa = Mali”.

Writing in the first person, imitating Mali, Lisa wrote: “I've met the ducks and geese… they're a bit noisy and scare me a bit but I'm sure I’ll get to know them better soon. I look forward to lots of adventures on the farm.”

Lisa, who shares three children with her ex-husband Grant Kenny – Jett, Jaimi Lee and Morgan – has happily co-parented with her former partner for years, despite both of them moving on in new relationships.

Previously speaking to Now To Love, about how her father’s absence had a huge impact on the way she and Grant parented their own children, encouraging them to be extremely present and hands on.

“I think because of that though, Grant and I as parents, we always said we will always be there for all our kids, for everything that they do,” Lisa explained.

“Every success, every failure, every try, everything it didn't matter. Just being there and being proud is really important as parents.”

Grant is also the father of radio star Fifi Box’s eldest daughter Trixie.
