Chip and Joanna Gaines welcomed their fifth baby, Crew Gaines, into the world in late June and he’s the perfect addition to their sweet family. Luckily for all of us, Joanna has been sharing lots of cute pictures of Crew’s first weeks of life— but the sweetest one yet involves his daddy and a hospital bracelet.

Shared a picture of Chip holding itty bitty baby Crew with a hospital bracelet still on his wrist. “Chip started a tradition with Drake where he wore the hospital bracelet until it fell off,” Joanna said of the picture. “Looks like the tradition lives on. #5

In addition to baby Crew, Chip and Joanna have four other kids together: Drake, Duke, Ella and Emmie, who have all adjusted to their new baby brother incredibly well.

Chip and Joanna announced that they were expecting their fifth baby together shortly after their final season of “Fixer Upper” began airing. According to Joanna, the pregnancy was a total surprise. “I had been feeling a little emotional and crazy and thought, ‘Wow, this isn’t me,’” she told People. “Then all of a sudden I realized, ‘Hey, I remember this.’ When I saw the results of the test, my jaw dropped. Chip was in the driveway about to leave when I called him back and said, ‘We’re pregnant!’ He was so excited. We’re both just so excited.”
