Another day, another adorable photo of Crew Gaines — and we’re not complaining! Proud mama Joanna Gaines took to Instagram on Wednesday, January 23 to share some sweet new photos of her little bundle of joy posing for his very first passport pics.
“Baby Crew getting his passport photos! Nice work @chipgaines,” the 40-year-old wrote in the caption alongside photos of 7-month-old Crew smiling as her husband, Chip Gaines, held the giggling baby up in front of a white post office wall. Take a look at the heartwarming photos below and make sure to scroll right to see more pics!
Most recently, Jo and Chip, 44, have been spending a lot of time at home — but perhaps they’re now planning a big trip since Crew is getting passport photos? — with their five growing kiddos. In fact, the Fixer Upper alums have apparently been taking advantage of their time off after their show’s fifth and final season ended in April 2018.
“They’re laying low and staying low-key,” Jimmy Don Holmes from JDH Iron Designs, who worked with the couple on their hugely successful show, recently shared with Closer Weekly. “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, [Texas]. 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.”
Though the couple recently announced they’ll return to TV in the future with their own cable network, Jimmy Don told Closer “there haven’t been camera crews in town” so far. “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 shared.
As the logistics of expanding their empire continues to be planned out, Chip and Jo are simply making sure to soak up as much time with their kids — Drake, 13, Ella, 11, Duke, 9, Emmie Kay, 8, and Crew — as they can. “They’re amazing as parents — just like his parents and her parents,” Jimmy Don said. “They’re so good with the kids! I feel like a better person because I got to know the Gaines and their parents — they’re all kind people.” So cute!
