Chip and Joanna Gaines are over the moon now that their fifth child, Crew, is finally in their arms and shared that they are keeping the family's tradition of wearing the baby's hospital bracelet alive.

Joanna, who used to star with her husband on HGTV's Fixer Upper, gave birth to Crew on June 23, 2018, a pregnancy that coincidently came to light after the end of the show.

On Thursday, July  5, the proud mother of five took to her Instagram account to share a very curious and sweet photo of Chip wearing the Crews' hospital bracelet while holding the baby in his arms.

According to Joanna, the tradition started 13 years ago, when their oldest child, Drake, was born. Since then, Chip has worn every single one of their children's bracelets until they eventually fall off.

Aside from Crew and Drake, Chip and Joanna are also parents to 11-year-old Ella, 10-year-old Duke and 9-year-old Emmie Jay, who welcomed their baby brother with open arms.

In fact, the Gaines children were so eager to meet their new sibling that they spent quite a lot of time close to the maternity room door trying to listen to what was happening inside.


Joanna couldn't help but share a photo of the moment with her fans on Instagram. As explained by the Fixer Upper, the picture was taken by an unidentified friend who traveled to the hospital upon learning that Joanna had gone into labor.

When it comes to the age gap between Crew and the rest of the children, Joana can't help but imagine the future and how Crew will be 10 years old by the time Emmie Kay will be off to college.


But having older children around the baby is something positive for the 40-year-old because they have a better understanding of what is going on around them and want to be a part of it.

The former Fixer Upper star has been keeping her fans up to date by posting photos of her bundle of joy on Instagram, including one in which Crew can be seen sleeping in a rocker designed by Charlie Crane.
