The former Fixer Uppers stars Chip and Joanna Gaines disclosed their new baby's name and shared some sweet photos of the moment he was born, taking to Instagram the same day Joanna gave birth.


The celebrity couple is on cloud nine over welcoming their fifth child, a boy, who was born on June 23. The newborn made his Instagram debut on his very birthday when his parents revealed his name to be Crew.

40-year-old Joanna proudly took to her account in the picture-based social network to introduce the newest addition to the Gaines pack, sharing a series of snapshots from the day they finally got to meet Crew. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa

In a slideshow post, the TV personality and entrepreneur reviewed the first moments the growing family spent with their most-recently arrived member, and the world had the first chance to see the beautiful child.


In the first picture, the mother-of-five is seen recovering on her hospital bed while giving a sweet look at a sleeping Crew wrapped in a small green sheet while lying in a crib next to her.

‘Our baby boy, Crew Gaines, is here and we couldn’t be more in love. 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,’ Joanna wrote.

‘Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. We are so grateful,’ she added in the caption to her post, addressing her millions of loyal followers.

Another photo shows Joanna and Chip in black and white as they look at each other’s eyes with satisfaction and relief after their latest son was safely delivered. Following that, we see Joanna holding Crew for the first time.


The slideshow closes with the moment the older Gaines’ children –Duke, Ella, Drake, and Emmie- finally, go inside the room to gather around the proud mother and their baby brother.

Before the children were allowed to enter the hospital room, they were captured as they stood next to the door curiously listening to what’s going on inside, impatient about meeting Crew and celebrate with their parents.

The photo was uploaded in a different post, and Joanna stated that it was one of her favourite photos from that unforgettable day. She credited a friend whose identity she didn’t reveal with taking the picture.

‘They couldn't wait to meet their new baby brother,’ the moved mother captioned the image.


On July 3, Joanna shared an adorable photo of 11-year-old Ella and 8-year-old Emmie holding Crew in the backyard of the family’s Waco farmhouse, and it looks like they have completely got used having him around.

As People reported, Crew is the first of the Gaines’ male children whose name doesn’t start with the letter ‘D.’ Although it is not a very common name, it is said to be gaining popularity in recent years.

Before his wife officially announced the baby’s name, Chip gave a secret hint to the newborn’s name when he shared the news about his fifth son’s birth on Twitter.

‘The Gaines crew is now 1 stronger! 10 beautiful toes and 10 beautiful fingers all accounted for, and big momma is doing great!’ he wrote.
