There’s nothing usual about the newest member of Chip and Joanna Gaines’ family.
Joanna, 40, shared a selfie of her “surprise” fifth addition to the family who apparently couldn’t wait to meet his family. The newborn arrived two and a half weeks earlier than expected.
Dad, Chip Gaines, first announced the arrival of their son via Instagram, “And then there were 5,” he wrote. “The Gaines crew is now 1 stronger! 10 beautiful toes and 10 beautiful fingers all accounted for, and big momma is doing great!”
Few realized father Chip was revealing the name of the clan’s fifth child, Crew.
Just as adorable is the pic of Crew’s anxious siblings hovering outside the birthing room door awaiting the first sounds and sight of their newest brother.
Crew Gaines’ dark plentiful hair and restful pose catch an adoring gaze from Mama Joanna.
Crew’s name is a bit of a departure from tradition of “D” names for their boys. Their other sons are named Duke and Drake.
Crew is just another name of a group of friends. That accurately reflects the gaggle of Gaines and their love for one another.

Hours later, Mama Joanna shared some emotional, love-filled moments with her infant son. Baby Crew looks perfectly at peace.
It’s easy to see why she captioned the photo on Instagram, “Cuddle bug ? ” as the newborn infant nestles in the warmth of his mother’s neck.
Take a moment, just sit back and enjoy the glow. What do you think of Chip and Joanna’s Fab Five?
