Over the weekend, the newest Gaines family member made his entrance into the world! Joanna Gaines gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Crew, on Saturday morning!
The world was ecstatic to learn back in January that Chip and Joanna were expecting their fifth child. Shortly prior to that, they revealed that they would be ending their popular show, “Fixer Upper.” The baby news made the devastation among fans a bit more bearable.
With the addition of baby Crew, the Gaines family is now a family of seven! Crew joins siblings 13-year-old Drake, 11-year-old Ella, 10-year-old Duke, and 8-year-old Emmie. Fans thought that Crew would have a name starting with a “D” like his two older brothers, so the name came as a surprise!
Recently, Chip and Joanna shared some sweet comments about their baby boy and how it has been interesting being pregnant and having a newborn after 8 years.
Joanna told PEOPLE, “We think about things like when Emmie goes off to college this little one will only be 10. It’s just crazy to think how wide that gap is, but Chip just loves hanging out with the kids and it’s just such a sweet thing.”
Jo also posted a sweet photo of Crew snuggling with her, with the cute caption, “cuddle bug.”
During her pregnancy, Joanna revealed that it felt like she was pregnant for the first time, as it had been so long since her last pregnancy.
She said, “I have forgotten almost everything, so it feels brand-new. I tell Chip that I feel 25, and in my mind there’s something about it that gives me an extra kick in my step. Forty and pregnant…who would have ever thought that was going to happen? But I’ll take it!”
The couple also said that they have always been spontaneous and that they have no idea what the future holds for their family. They said that they are taking it one day at a time.
Congrats to the happy couple on their growing family! Which photo of Crew so far is your favorite?! Let us know! In other recent news, Sarah Huckabee Sanders is set to receive secret service protection. Please pray for her safety!
