Chip and Joanna Gaines Welcome Their 5th Child!

And baby makes 7!  Chip and Joanna Gaines are parents again. On Saturday the “Fixer Upper” couple announced their son Crew’s had arrived noting his birth was a bit of a surprise as he was a couple weeks early.

“Our baby boy, Crew Gaines, is here and we couldn’t be more in love.” Joanna wrote. “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 all your thoughts and prayers. We are so grateful.”

Excited, the couple’s older kids Drake, 13, Ella, 11, Duke, 9 and Emmie Kay, 8 were photographed by a friend standing outside the door waiting to meet their new brother.

Chip and Joanna revealed another baby was on the way in January with a sweet video of their ultrasound.

In April she shared a cute photo of herself indulging in donuts, titled ‘This is 40. And I like it…’

During an interview with People.com, she recalled the day she learned her family was growing again.

“I had been feeling a little emotional and crazy and thought, ‘Wow, this isn’t me,’ ” she told the magazine in May. “Then all of a sudden I realized, ‘Hey, I remember this.’ When I saw the results of the test, my jaw dropped. Chip was in the driveway about to leave when I called him back and said, ‘We’re pregnant!’ He was so excited. We’re both just so excited.”

Now that he’s here the little cutie appears to be adjusting to life out of the womb perfectly. Joanna’s photo on Sunday night showed him cuddled up on her chest.

Cuddle bug ?
