In a post shared by his wife, Marina revealed that her beau had been away filming at Longleat Safari Park.
In a follow-up picture, the adventurer revealed that he had received “disgusted” messages from social media users about owning a pregnant dog.
Sharing a cute picture of his son Ludovic cuddling the family dog, Ben reassured fans that he and his father are not “puppy farmers”.
The star started by thanking fans for the “concerned” messages about their pregnant black Labrador, before admitting that the pregnancy was “carefully considered”.
He went on to emphasise how important puppies are when it comes to training them from an early age to become service dogs.
Ben added: “Those ‘disgusted’ that we have a pregnant dog might want to consider that charities like Hearing Dogs for Deaf people, co-founded by my father, rely on good, young dogs to train.”
He added: “I was sharing an amusing post about pregnancy and puppies.
“It’s the summer. The sun is shining. Love, peace and puppy licks,” he signed off.
