Early Saturday morning, June 23rd, Chip and Joana Gaines welcomed their fifth child, a healthy baby boy. Chip announced the birth via Twitter.
Chip and Joanna posted photos of their new son late Saturday for the first time since his arrival. The Gaines had to muster the troops early, since Crew Gaines came two and a half weeks early.
“Our baby boy, Crew Gaines, is here and we couldn’t be more in love. He made an unexpected (and speedy) entrance into the world two and a half weeks early – which is fitting given he was a sweet surprise from day one. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. We are so grateful,” Joanna wrote.
A friend of the Gaines’s posted a photo of their four children, Drake, Ella Rose, Duke and Emmie Kay waiting outside the hospital room door, eagerly listening for the arrival of their new baby brother.
In this photo, Joanna holds her new son Crew, a look of contentment on her face. The son’s name is a break in the Gaines’s tradition of naming the boys with “D” names and the girls with “E” names.
Please join us in praying for this young healthy addition to the Gaines Clan. Congratulations, Chip and Joanna on the arrival of Crew Gaines!
