If you are looking for a social media account that will often put a smile on your face, may we suggest the Instagram account of “Blue Bloods” star Steve Schirripa.

Not only does the 64-year-old share posts about “Blue Bloods,” but he also posts about his other famous show – “The Sopranos.” And to make things even better, Schirripa often shares photos of his adorable dog on Instagram.

That dog is named Willie. And based on the photos Schirripa has shared on social media, Willie is an important part of the actor’s family.

The actor showcased the adorable Willie again on Monday, Nov. 1. And while he did so, the actor also made an announcement that many fans of “The Sopranos” will be happy to hear. Making the “delivery” of this news even better was that Willie was also dressed up as a mailman in the photo the “Blue Bloods” star used to share the news.

“Willie Boy and I are pleased to deliver some exciting news! We are welcoming back our dear friend Robert Iler @pajamapantspodcast to Episode 84 of @talkingsopranos!!” Steve Schirripa posted.

As fans of “The Sopranos” are well aware, Robert Iler is the actor who played A.J. Soprano in the beloved show. A.J. was the son of Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini) and Carmela Soprano (Edie Falco). Also, he was one of their two children. The other was Meadow Soprano (Jamie-Lynn Sigler).

According to IMDb, Iler is now 36 years old. He played A.J. during every season of “The Sopranos” from 1999 until 2007. Following that, he has only one television or movie appearance on his filmography. That appearance was his work in one episode of “Law & Order” during 2009.
