On June 21, Chip and Joanna Gaines welcomed their fifth beautiful child into the world – a healthy baby boy. And the happy couple has already revealed his name!
Although many thought the Gaines would stick to their tradition of giving their sons and daughters names that start with a ‘D’ and ‘E’, respectively, they surprised everyone by naming their little one Crew Gaines!
Congratulations to the proud parents!
It’s been 8 years since the couple last parented a newborn. But the Fixer Upper stars absolutely love the idea of having little kids around house for a bit longer.
Their older children are now between 8 and 13 years old. So, even when the youngest out of four will go to college, they will still have Crew living with them. As Joanna says:
It’s just crazy to think how wide that gap is, but Chip just loves hanging out with the kids.
Besides, the fans of the couple also think that they would handle parenting their newborn just fine, so they shouldn't even worry about it.
@joannagaines @chipgaines The gap between your kids is perfect. In house baby-sitters will be available plus your bonus baby will be showered with attention and love. He will be so confident and capable. I wish I grew up with older siblings like Crew will have.— Deelaney31 (@Deelaney31) June 27, 2018
Down to earth people. They’ll get it together.— Vanesa (@Vanesa49096393) June 27, 2018
The fifth pregnancy was also more special for Joanna because she has already forgotten everything related to carrying a child. This time, the experience felt brand-new and made the 40-year-old think like she is 25 again.
Are they planning to have yet another baby?
As Joanna says, she and Chip never plan anything far in advance:
I joke with my friends that I’m going to be that 45-year-old who’s pregnant.
It looks like the couple could not be any happier!
