Sofia Richie‘s precious new pup has a name — and Scott Disick can be credited for coming up with the moniker!
On Thursday, while at Issey Miyake Launch Party at Milk Studios in El Lay, Lionel Richie‘s daughter revealed that her 5-week-old wiener dog’s name is Hershela (spelling not confirmed).
In regards to how she settled on the unique name, the It-girl told People:
“Her name’s [Hershela]. My boyfriend named her ├óΓé¼┬ª I kind of just ran with it. It made me laugh. I liked Hershey and he liked Hershela, so it was like a middle ground.”
Awwwww. As to why Lord Disick got the honor of naming the puppy, the 19-year-old explained that since the father-of-three got her the pup, he should have a hand in naming it. She continued:
“He wanted the dog for a while, but he ended up surprising me with it.”
And it appears that Miz Richie is already in love with the little animal. The up-and-comer even gushed:
“I am obsessed with wiener dogs, so I’ve just been sitting at home staring at her all day like a psychopath. I think this is like my first proper outing since I got her.”
However, it seems like not everyone is informed that Scott bought the animal for his lady love. Recently, Kim Kardashian West had a Snapchat session with the dog, and claimed that the animal belonged to Disick’s daughter Penelope (below). Either Keeks is being SUPER shady and isn’t acknowledging Sofia’s existence or the KUWTK vet has kept some info to himself.
Huh. We guess we’ll just have to wait and see if Kim clarifies anything…
