The couple treated the singer's son Max to a gorgeous Goldendoodle puppy on Thursday – and they're asking their followers to help name him! Sharing a sweet family photo on Instagram, Alex wrote: "We surprised Max yesterday with a new puppy, a Goldendoodle. So cute, but there’s one thing left to decide ... his name! We are having a family debate and would love your help! It’s between these two names: Tyson or Yankee Doodle??? Let us know what you think! Thanks!"

Last month, Jennifer admitted she was trying to remain positive after being forced to cancel her wedding to Alex in the wake of COVID-19. Speaking on the Today Show, the 50-year-old said they aren’t currently trying to re-plan their nuptials, as "nobody knows" what is going to happen with coronavirus. "You just have to kind of wait and see how this all plays out... I'm a little heartbroken because we did have some great plans but I'm also like, you know what, god has a bigger plan, so we just have to wait and see."

While wedding planning has been delayed for the foreseeable future, Alex previously revealed that they had come up with some ideas about when and how the wedding may take place once things return to normal. "We had a meeting on Zoom with our core group of people," he told Entertainment Tonight.

"Kind of just going over what the next 12 months look like and we have three or four different variations of how that can look. It's such a fluid world. Usually when you underwrite a year – whether in terms of scheduling or financially – you never think that it's going to just stop like this. So, we're having to be very fluid, think on our feet and just think very proactively."
