Since Joanna and Chip Gaines welcomed their fifth child into the world a week ago, Fixer Upper fans have been waiting with bated breath to catch a glimpse of the new baby’s nursery. With a design maven like Joanna as a mom, he’s guaranteed to get a room that will launch a million Pinterest dreams. And since Mama Jo just shared the first glimpse of baby Crew’s special space, you can practically already hear the pinning begin.
On Saturday, Joanna posted a photo of sweet Crew swaddled and snuggled up tight in a baby lounger. She captioned the snapshot, “It’s been a little over a week and he’s settling in just fine.”
Spoiler alert: Little Crew’s nursery is divine. From the textured cream-colored rug to the giant potted fiddle-leaf fig, it’s a study in modern farmhouse perfection. Of course, it is interesting to note that the space — although undeniably Joanna-esque — skews just as modern as it does farmhouse. In fact, there’s no shiplap to be seen.
Could baby Crew’s nursery be the next chapter in the Gaineses’ story? They’ve undoubtedly entered a new phase of life, welcoming a fifth child and leaving Fixer Upper behind. Perhaps this space hints at what’s to come with Chip and Joanna’s future projects.
Regardless, we’re just grateful the Waco couple is willing to take the rest of us along for the ride. So far, the proud mama and papa have been honest and open about their latest adventure in parenting.
“Our baby boy, Crew Gaines, is here and we couldn’t be more in love,” Joanna wrote on Instagram shortly after Crew’s birth. “He made an unexpected (and speedy) entrance into the world two and a half weeks early — which is fitting given he was a sweet surprise from day one. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. We are so grateful.”
We can’t wait until Joanna reveals the rest of Crew’s nursery, but until then, we’re perfectly content to coo over more close-ups of the little cuddle bug.
