Reality TV couple Chip and Joanna Gaines are now proud parents of five after they welcomed the newest member to their growing family, a son named Crew.

Welcome Crew Gaines

Joanna gave birth to a healthy baby boy on June 23 and announced his arrival on social media. The avid Instagram user shared photos from her stay in the hospital. The images were taken on the day Crew arrived.

The first photo shows the interior decorator in bed as she gazes lovingly at her new bundle of joy. The second image was probably taken before Joanna gave birth and shows Chip comforting her.

The third photo seems to have been snapped right after the baby's birth and shows the happy mom cradling the newborn to her chest. The fourth shot shows the whole family looking all happy and excited as they welcomed baby Crew.

Joanna revealed that Crew was so excited to meet his family that he came out earlier than expected. He came out two and a half weeks early, which according to the mom, is "fitting given he was a sweet surprise from day one."

"Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. We are so grateful," Joanna wrote alongside the photos.

Chip also shared his excitement for the baby's arrival on Twitter. He gave an update on baby Crew and Joanna's health.

"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 tweeted.

Growing Family

The Fixer Upper stars already have four kids. They have daughters Emmie Kay, 8, and Ella, 11, and sons Duke, 9, and Drake, 13. In a follow-up post on Instagram, Joanna shared one of her favorite photos taken after Crew's birth.

The snap shows the siblings gathered outside her room, too excited to meet their baby brother.

Joanna has since come home after a safe delivery and shared a recent photo of baby Crew sleeping safe and sound on her chest.

Crew's arrival breaks the tradition of Chip and Joanna's penchant for giving their sons a name that starts with a letter D. Chip even hinted at the baby's moniker in his tweet and in an Instagram post in April, which showed his four kids posing for the camera.

"We take #Demoday seriously in this family. I love my crew!" Chip captioned the shot.
