Chip and Joanna Gaines, who used to star in the hit show Fixer Uppers, revealed their new baby's name and shared some sweet photos of the moment he was born.


The couple is in a very happy place at the moment considering that their fifth child, who they decided to name Crew, was born on Saturday, June 23, 2018.

In order to introduce their new bundle of joy to the world, Joanna, proudly took to her Instagram page to share a few photos of Crew with all of her fans and followers.

In the first picture, the reality star can be seen resting on her hospital bed as she sweetly looks at baby Crew sleeping next to her, wrapped in a small green sheet


“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 your thoughts and prayers. We are so grateful.”

In the following pictures, which are all grouped together in a single post, Joanna is depicted holding Crew for the first time. The moment the rest of family gathered around the proud mother was also captured.


Perhaps one of the sweetest photos yet is the one where Chip and Joanna's children, Emmie Kay, Duke, Ella and Drake are standing close to their mother's maternity room trying to figure out what was happening inside.

According to Joanna, the photo was taken by a friend, whose identity is yet to be revealed, who might have traveled to the hospital to offer some moral support.


Although the first photos of a celebrity's baby always seem to spark fans' interest, this time it was the name that drew quite a lot of  questions, especially since the Gaines broke the tradition of giving their male children names starting with the letter 'D.'

Plus, the name Crew is highly unusual. with the word being normally used as a slang term for a group of friends. According to People, the first time the name popped up in a Social Security list was in 1995.

Since then, the name seems to have grown in popularity, with Joshua Morrow, the actor from The Young and the Restless, naming his son Crew in 2005.
