The newest love of Bindi Irwin's life is 10 weeks old and, "already melting hearts".

She debuted the latest addition to her furry family, a tiny pug puppy named Stella, on social media this week.

Meet Stella. The newest edition to our little family. At 10 weeks old, she's already melting hearts.

In a short clip, the 17-year-old can be seen wearing an Australia Zoo uniform, holding the pup as it sleeps in her arms.

It's not the most adventurous choice for a girl who has grown up around crocodiles, tigers, snakes and koala's, but she's clearly besotted.

Bindi adopted Stella just one week after touching down in Australia, following a month long holiday with mother Terri and brother Robert.

The trio ventured to South Africa for two weeks to film a guest appearance on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! before heading to Oregon, America to visit Trudi's mum and dad.
