Beautiful! Joanna Gaines hoped to give her 12 million Instagram followers a reason to smile as she shared a photo of 22-month-old son Crew enjoying the great outdoors. The former Fixer Upper star uploaded a photo of her youngest child staring at a gorgeous double rainbow outside of their home in Waco, Texas.
“Holding on to the hope and promise for what’s to come,” Joanna, 41, captioned the glorious snapshot, which featured the brown-haired tot pointing at the sky’s colorful creation. Little Crew donned black pants and a gray T-shirt while standing barefoot on the rain-soaked pavement alongside their family’s farm.
Joanna’s fans expressed their gratitude for sharing the heartwarming moment as they flooded her post with sweet comments. “Seeing your baby in the corner just melts my heart,” one user gushed, while another echoed, “Gorgeous! Such a beautiful picture, but with that little guy in the corner, it pulls on the heartstrings!” A third chimed in, writing, “That’s a ‘framer’ right there! Perfection!”
Crew admiring the stunning double rainbow while hanging outside with his mama is just one of many uplifting moments Joanna has shared amid the coronavirus pandemic. Since COVID-19 became widespread across the U.S., the We Are the Gardeners author has been cooped up at home with Crew, husband Chip Gaines and the rest of their kids — Drake, 15, Ella, 14, Duke, 11, and Emmie Kay, 10.
On March 23, the doting mom uploaded a super cute snapshot of her little bundle of joy checking in on some of the animals while wearing a onesie and booties. “Farm chores,” Joanna wrote in the caption. She also revealed how Crew was staying entertained as she shared a video of him “perfecting his pool table skills” on March 22. So cute!
We bet Chip, 45, and Joanna — who tied the knot in 2003 — are taking advantage of all the time they have at home with their big brood of kiddos. Since they’re so used to juggling their hectic schedule as owners of their Magnolia empire, they must be thrilled to be able to unwind without any distractions.
“It’s about quality time together,” an insider exclusively shared with Closer Weekly in April 2019. “They always eat meals together at the table and their family nights include games like cards and checkers, then bedtime stories and prayers.”
“In this house, mom’s rules include no cell phones or TV, homework first then play and no computers after 6 p.m.,” the insider continued at the time. “In the evening, the kids kick back by reading each other stories. Everyone says they have the perfect life.”
We can’t wait to see how Chip and Jo to celebrate Crew’s upcoming 2nd birthday this June!
