Ali FedotowskySoooooo, this may seem a little bit sudden, but former Bachelorette and E! News correspondent Ali Fedotowsky is a "mommy." Don't get too excited thinking she's joined the ranks of Hollywood peeps who put the baby carriage before marriage.

(Not that any of us would be all that shocked or anything.)

I mean, duh -- she's only been dating boyfriend Kevin Manno for a few months, so they're probably not quite ready to do the whole kid thing yet.

But that doesn't mean they don't have room for a "baby" in their lives.

Yep. You guessed it. Ali adopted a puppy, named Owen, who is pretty darn adorable, if you ask me.

Aww! Too cute. She shared this pic on Instagram and even captioned it with, "I love being a mommy." That's sweet, even though it's not anywhere near close to accurate, as any parent of a human baby will tell you.

And now that she's an official dog mom -- we can't help but wonder whether Ali will hit another major milestone sometime in the near future. While babies might be a ways off considering she's 29 and still has plenty of time to venture into parenthood territory, she and Kevin do seem pretty serious, so will Owen be serving as an honorary ring bearer any time soon?

You know what they say -- first comes love, then comes the dog, then comes living together, and then ... well ... marriage.

(Or something like that.)

Do you think settling down is the next logical step for Ali?
