Self-isolation and quarantine won't be enough to restrict author Chip Gaines from spending time with his furry friend. Now, his son, Crew, appears to have developed an affinity for animals as well.
Earlier this week, the author and TV star shared a picture of his 2-year-old son on Instagram. In the image, Crew wears a yellow raincoat and cute brown boots as he pets a horse at the family's ranch in Waco, Texas.
The little boy appears to be really into the animal, and the horse obliges by lowering his head to get a soft pat. It might not be far-fetched to say that the little Mr. Gaines shares his father's affection for farm pets.
The family is continuing to stay home in line with government orders. So, Chip and his wife, Joanna, will have their hands full with five children — Drake, Ella Rose, Duke, Emmie Kay, and Crew.
Still, it's cute to see the children getting acquainted with some wildlife. Chip captioned his sweet snap, "A boy and his horse.. #farmLife”
Crew appears to be one chip off the old block, as Joanna recently confirmed in an interview. Last month, she spoke on some of the similarities that she and Chip have noticed in their children.
They had initially planned for the launch to be on October 4
As for the 2-year-old, he appears not to be afraid of the spotlight. Perhaps a career in TV awaits the little man soon.
As for the family's method of coping, Joanna explained that they're keeping it all together. Last month, she said that she and Chip had taken it upon themselves to educate their children on what's going on. She added:
"They don't watch the news, they don't have the stuff on their phones… So, we've really sat and communicated just the seriousness of this and how we can be praying for people."
The couple is also working hard on their careers, especially as they're in the process of launching a TV station.
Last month, they announced a four-hour preview of their network, which they named the Magnolia Network. The preview, which they titled, "Magnolia Presents: A Look Back & A Look Ahead," will feature footage from their fan-favorite show, "Fixer Upper."
However, they also explained to their fans that they had to push back the launch of the network itself. They had initially planned for the launch to be on October 4. But, they had to make some pushbacks due to the novel coronavirus.
