Seeing double! Chip Gaines just proved that his 7-month-old son, Crew Gaines, is totally his little mini-me after he shared an adorable new photo of his baby boy to Instagram on Sunday, January 20. “Chip off the old block,” the former Fixer Upper star wrote in the caption of the pic of his little bundle of joy sweetly smiling at the camera.
In the snap, Crew is standing on a table as he wore khaki overalls and a jacket. It didn’t take long before fans began to comment on how precious he looked in the photo. “He is so sweet, how he looks like his daddy!” one user wrote in the comments section. “So precious! Ready for demo day,” wrote another. Take a look at the adorable photo below!
Chip, 44, and his wife, Joanna Gaines, welcomed baby Crew into their large family this past June. And though you can imagine how difficult it can be to be a parent to five growing kids, Chip and Jo definitely know how to hold down the fort.
In a recent exclusive interview with Closer Weekly, the couple’s close friend and former Fixer Upper co-star, Jimmy Don Holmes from JDH Iron Designs, gushed that couple is “amazing as parents” to their children, 14-year-old Drake, 12-year-old Ella, 10-year-old Duke, 8-year-old Emmie and Crew.
“They’re amazing as parents — just like his parents and her parents,” Jimmy Don said of Chip and Jo, 40. “They’re so good with the kids! I feel like a better person because I got to know the Gaineses and their parents— they’re all kind people.”
Jimmy Don also revealed to Closer that the duo has been enjoying their time off with their kiddos since Fixer Upper ended in April 2018. “They’re laying low [and] staying low-key. I saw them drive by this morning. They tend to stop by the Magnolia Headquarters occasionally and deal with their businesses in town in Waco, [TX],” he stated. “They don’t visit the headquarters too much because they spend the majority of their time tending to family matters and spending more time at home.”
However, their staycation is going to come to an end soon considering Chip and Jo are launching their own cable network soon. The parents-of-five mended fans’ broken hearts after they revealed this past November that they’re returning to TV in the future.
But Jimmy Don assured that Chip and Jo are still in relaxation mode after he said he doesn’t believe the Gaineses have started filming any new shows yet. “There haven’t been camera crews in town. As far as I know, there’s no filming going on at the moment. I usually know things and, as of right now, I do not know when they’re launching their network,” he told Closer.
Though we can’t wait to have Chip and Jo back on our TV screens soon, we hope they are enjoying their sweet quality time with their adorable children!
