In a clip shared on his Instagram, Gino revealed a brand-new puppy, affectionately called Snoop, and his daughter Mia had the best response. In the video, Mia was blindfolded so that the surprise wasn't spoiled for her as her father asked if he remembered that she had a "late Christmas present" that was due to arrive. When she lifted the blindfold, the young girl screamed: "No you didn't! No you didn't! Oh my god!"
