‘Bachelor’ Couple Kaitlyn Bristowe And Jason Tartick’s Family Is Expanding–’Ramen Has A New Brother’

Former bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe and former Bachelorette contestant (from Becca Kufrin’s season) Jason Tartick have been together a little over a year. From the very beginning of their relationship, they knew they’d stumbled upon something special.

“I didn’t realize a relationship could be this easy and that I could be this happy with somebody. It’s just so easy,” Bristowe told Entertainment Tonight back in June. “We just have a really healthy relationship, healthy communication, and we build each other up.”

Pretty quickly, the two moved in together and, shortly after, adopted a dog named Ramen Noodle.

Tartick told ET at the time that he felt adopting Ramen was basically a “crash course” in being parents.

“I want two dogs, three kids,” he said.

“I mean, I’m fine with one or two [kids],” said Bristowe. “I used to want five, but now I’m like, ‘OK, I’m turning 34 tomorrow, and I’m like, ‘You know what? One would be great!’”

Well, Tartick and Bristowe just added another dog to the bunch so they’re one step closer to Tartick’s goal of two dogs and three kids.

On December 8, Bristowe posted about their newest family member, Pinot, on Instagram.

“MERRY CHRISTMAS TO US!! Ramen has a new brother 😍😍. MEET PINOT. ( @ramenpairedwithpinot )Pinot was found in a kill shelter in South Korea and @bunnysbuddies saved him. Now he has a safe home with us. I was so worried how Ramen would react… But let me tell you.. You will see through my stories that these pups took to each other RIGHT away. They snuggle, and don’t leave each other’s side,” wrote Bristowe.

She continued: “Pinot is a big mushy sweet heart who is some how more cuddly than Ramen. He’s got the SOFTEST coat, and the biggest heart. I know a lot of people will ask how we will do this with traveling so much. But we will make it work. This isn’t about us. This is about giving a sweet innocent pup a new life. We will continue to do what we do, and just do it with 2 instead of 1.”

Jason Tartick confirms that Ramen and Pinot are best friends

Tartick also posted about his new pup with Bristowe.

“A Christmas surprise came early! We now have Ramen with a side of Pinot! Welcoming our newest addition, “Pinot G” to the family. With the help of @bunnysbuddies we rescued Pinot, who was in the exact same Kill shelter as Ramen. As devastating as it is, dogs put in these Kill Shelters have only 10 days to be rescued. The work @bunnysbuddies does is absolutely incredible and has changed Ramen & Pinot’s lives, as well are ours,” he wrote.

Tartick is also excited that Ramen and Pinot are getting along swimmingly thus far.

“In just a short time of witnessing it, it’s clear Pinot was Ramen’s long lost best friend and brother…they adore one another. And the fact his name was Pinot before we got him…can’t make this stuff up! Very excited to share the Pinot surprise video…I’ll have it shortly! Happy Holidays from our Family to yours!” he continued.

The holidays are extra special for the Bristowe/Tarticks this year. Welcome home, Pinot!
