Over the weekend, Joanna Gaines' baby boy, Crew, officially turned 1. On the day after his birthday, his ecstatic mom took to Instagram to celebrate his first year with a slideshow of heartwarming photos of the family from Baby Crew's first weeks.
Joanna is a 41-year-old reality TV star, who is married to TV personality, Chip Gaines. Asides from Baby Crew, their union is blessed with four older children– Drake, 14, Ella Rose, 12, Duke, 10, and Emmie Kay, 9.
To celebrate her last child's birthday, the happy mum took to Instagram to share some sweet memories of baby Crew birth.
The stacked post, consisting of several heartwarming images, has earned over a million likes, as at the time of writing this article.
The first image showed her four older children and husband crowding around a hospital door; waiting as she gave birth.
The slide also contains two intimate photos from the delivery room, as well as images of her older children snuggling Crew.
The last picture shows proud father Chip flashing at the camera a broad smile as he holds his youngest son, who seems to be napping away in his baby carrier. She had a sweet caption and ended it with a red heart emoji.
"One year ago. What a gift you are to all of us, sweet boy."
Fans and well-wishers of the reality television family took to the comments section to send their warm wishes and best regards for the birthday boy.
Baby Crew is steadily racking up a solid fan base, but his biggest fans remain his older siblings, who are still 'obsessed' with him months after his birth.
In an earlier interview with PEOPLE, Joanna Gaines spoke about how happy the family was to welcome baby Crew into their lives.
"It's so funny. They still are completely obsessed with this kid," she had said about her older children.
"A year ago, he wasn't in our lives. Now you're like, 'How?' "she muses. "I think what's so crazy about kids is by the time they hit the ground... it's almost like we always knew he was coming, and this was his time."
She praises her older kids as being a big help in raising little Crew. She described them as being "the best," and having "the sweetest" approach to bonding with baby Crew.
"They just say, 'Can I do this?', 'Of course.'"
Baby Crew is lucky to have a loving and supportive family. Here is us wishing Baby Crew a happy birthday!!
