He’s here, folks!
Yes, we wrote HE.
A day after Chip Gaines announced to the world that his wife had given birth to the beloved couple’s fifth child, his wife Joanna jumped on Twitter to provide a few key updates about this bundle of joy.
First, see the above pronoun: the HGTV stars are now parents to a little boy.
Second, Joanna revealed the boy’s name in her first Twitter post since this miraculous development.
“Our baby boy, Crew Gaines, is here & we couldn’t be more in love,” she wrote, expounding as follows:
“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.”
We’re glad everyone is doing okay after such an early birth.
And we’re glad to have a few photos from the big day, starting with this look at the newborn:
“And then there were 5,” Chip had written on Saturday in regard to this news, adding on Twitter:
“The Gaines crew is now 1 stronger! 10 beautiful toes and 10 beautiful fingers all accounted for, and big momma is doing great!”
Joanna, meanwhile, shared numerous images from the day Crew entered the world, joining siblings Emmie Kay, 8, Duke, 9, Ella, 11, and Drake, 13 in the process.
She labeled this one her “favorite.”
One of my favorite pics a friend showed me after Crew was born. They couldn’t wait to meet their new baby brother, said Joanna of this sweet snapshot.
Chip and Joanna confirmed late last year that Season 5 of Fixer Upper would be the show’s last.
A few weeks later, they helped explain why by sharing Joanna’s pregnancy with their followers.
Ever since, the reality stars have kept social media followers well apprised of her baby bump status and their journey in general.
That clearly won’t be changing any time soon, as Joanna also posted the following beautiful image of her and Chip in the hospital:
“CONGRATS 2 u and Chips & the other 4 kiddos—May “CREATOR”–GOD BLESS AND KEEP YOU ALLL IN THE PALM OF “HIS” LOVING ARMS!! BLSSINGS My favorite fixer-upper!!” wrote one Twitter in response to Joanna’s photographic update.
“Now THAT is too dang adorable and precious,” added another.
Joanna works as a home designer and Chip a home renovator, but the former is also an author and the couple also owns a restaurant and has its hand in other business ventures related to these industries.
They’ve grown in fame due mostly to their humor and chemistry as a couple.
To conclude her update, Joanna published this picture down below.
It pretty much says it all, doesn’t it?
Crew is the couple’s first son who hasn’t been given a name that starts with the letter D.
We don’t know why they broke from tradition, but they must have been thinking differently overall in this case.
Only 339 boys in the entire United States were named Crew last year.
Please join us in sending your heartfelt congratulations to Chip, Joanna and the whole Gaines family!
