There’s no shortage of love in the Gaines’ family. That’s for sure!
New (again) father, Chip Gaines, shared a heart-melting photo of the most recent addition to the Gaines family, Crew. Snuggled in the crook of his daddy’s arm, the three-week-old infant showed his contentment by passing out in pure bliss.
Even while mother, Joanna, 40, was giving birth, the four older Gaines’ children stood with ears pressed against the hospital room door, hoping to hear their new baby brother’s first cry.
Crew arrived on June 21 much to the delight of siblings Drake, 13, Ella, 11, Duke, 9, and Emmie Kay, 8. Breaking the tradition of choosing boys’ names that begin with “D,” it’s obvious Crew is pretty special to everyone.
Joanna Gaines says she has no shortage of offers to help care for Crew. Daughters Emmie Kay and Ella take turns holding their little brother and even after three weeks, continue to look at him with amazement.
This precious new photo of Crew was posted a day after Joanna, 40, shared a video detailing her secret in getting Crew to sleep. Captioned “Walking with my boy in the garden,” Joanna showed her formula for getting her new little one to sleep. While it seemed simple enough, everything in the Gaines’ family appears magical.
The mother of five said strolling with the baby around her Waco backyard was all it too to lull Crew to sleep.
Joanna let admirers in on what her typical Wednesday evening entailed. With a sleeping baby Crew held in her arms, she strolled through her garden taking in all the flower and fruit trees.
Swaddled in his favorite green blanket, Crew was unaware of anything but the warmth of his mother and the feeling of love.
It’s easy to see why the Gaines’s family is so in love with this new addition to their crew.
With the hashtag #MyHeartIsFull, the ecstatic Fixer Upper star, 43, showed off the Gaines’ adorable fifth child in an awww-inspiring fashion.
All you have to do is look at Chip’s post on social media to feel the love and overwhelming joy.
