Natalie Morales on The Talk in 2024

Natalie Morales’ four-legged family just got a little bit bigger!

During a Friday, May 24, segment of The Talk, the host introduced Frankie, a puppy she adopted from Best Friends LA Pet Adoption Center after filming a segment — and falling in love.

Morales, 51, stopped by the animal rescue organization to help out, which prompted her to recall her first job as a teenager at a local pet center. Though she said that early gig didn’t pay a lot of money, it taught her "so much" about her love of animals.

After her prerecorded segment at the adoption center aired, Morales introduced the puppy in her lap. “This is little Frankie, I named her Frankie because of her blue eyes, Frank Sinatra. A little girl but look at her eyes," she gushed, showing off Frankie.

This isn’t the first time the TV personality fell in love with a puppy at work. Morales joked that she does have a “habit” of adopting pets on national television. “I adopted Zara when she was on the Today Show, I adopted Obi when he was on Access, and what do you think, Frankie? Do you want to come home with me?”

Morales adopted Zara in 2011, and took home Obi, a spaniel-terrier mix in 2019.

She joked that she had to put in a “high pressure call” to her husband, Joe Rhodes, to make sure one more puppy at home would be fine. Morales continued, "She's going to have a great home with two other sweet loving rescue siblings, so I'm excited to introduce her."

Although Morales — who has two sons, Josh and Luke — was set on naming the dog Frankie, she later announced in an Instagram post that she ultimately went with Kyra with persuasion from “the boys.”
