On Saturday morning, the Fixer Upper couple Chip and Joanna Gaines welcomed their fifth child who entered the world two and a half weeks early. His name is Crew Gaines. This is their first son without a name beginning with the letter “D.”
Chip confirmed the newborn’s healthy birth via Twitter.
And then there were 5.. The Gaines crew is now 1 stronger! 10 beautiful toes and 10 beautiful fingers all accounted for, and big momma is doing great! #blessedBeyondBelief

Chip also relayed the funny story of conception on Twitter.
Hint #3 You might recall a few months back.. the ever amazing, ever romantic @JOHNNYSWIM was in Waco. And they put on a little too romantic of a concert.. anyways, one thing led to another, & we are officially pregnant. And I could not be more EXCITED! #5 #7ThePerfectNumber

Joanna has also shared updates during her presidency including food cravings.
Woke up this morning at 2:30 AM and was craving fruity pebbles, a pimento cheese sandwich, chicken spaghetti, deviled eggs, and ranch dressing. Didn’t have any of that so I made myself some cookies. With all the restaurant’s final tastings, the cookbook (yes these cookies are in it!), and this pregnancy-I’m definitely growing at a record rate👌🏽#magnoliatable
The two are already parents to Emmie Kay, 8, Duke, 9, Ella, 11, and Drake, 13.
