There is a new crew member in the Gaines family!
On Saturday, June 23, beloved HGTV stars Chip and Joanna Gaines announced they had welcomed their fifth child, a son named Crew. Chip Gaines took to Twitter at 9:30 am to make the announcement, writing, “And then there were 5…The Gaines crew is now 1 stronger! 10 beautiful toes and 10 beautiful fingers all accounted for, and big momma is doing great! #blessedBeyondBelief.”
Afterwards, Joanna shared the first photos of the new baby boy, who joins older siblings, Emmie Kay, 8, Duke, 9, Ella, 11, and Drake, 13. She shared a series of photos, beginning with one of herself looking lovingly at her new son from her hospital bed, writing, “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.”
Another photo showed Chip supporting Joanna while in labor, the third is of Joanna holding the newborn and the last is of the four older Gaines children meeting their newest sibling.
She then shared a very sweet photo of her four older children waiting expectantly at the hospital room door, captioning the picture, “One of my favorite pics a friend showed me after Crew was born. They couldn’t wait to meet their new baby brother.”
Joanna then shared one last photo of her new baby boy, writing, “Cuddle bug.”
