On Sunday, she took to Instagram and shared with her 7.9 million followers a beautiful snapshot of newborn Crew Gaines. 

Joanna said in the description that Crew 'made an unexpected (and speedy) entrance into the world two and half weeks early - which is fitting given he was a sweet surprise from day one.'

She also thanked their family, friends, and fans for their thoughts and prayers and added that they are grateful and 'couldn't be more in love'
