Chip and Joanna Gaines announced the arrival of their 5th child, Crew Gaines. On June 23rd, proud poppa Chip Gaines made the announcement via twitter:

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!

We have been fortunate to get some beautiful pictures of newborn Crew and his happy family. Happy mamma Joanna Gaines shared some pictures of the family soon after Crew’s birth. In the post, she also said that her baby was born came two and a half weeks early.

Crew was a little surprise for the HGTV stars and they found out they were expecting soon after deciding to stop filming their hit Fixer Upper television show. Viewers of “Fixer Upper” have watched the couple’s older 4 children Drake, Ella, Duke, and Emmie grow up; and have fallen in love with the family and their designs. You may have noticed that they had a pattern of choosing boy names with a “D”, and girl names with an “E.” They have obviously ditched that pattern with the name Crew. Crew older siblings are loving spending time with their new baby brother and the family loves being with their new “cuddle buddy”-as Joanna endearingly calls him. Congratulations to the Gaines family on their surprise baby boy that could not wait to come into the world.
