It feels like just yesterday when Chip and Joanna Gaines were announcing that they were going to have another baby. But on Monday (July 15,) that baby, Crew, took his first steps shortly after his first birthday. The little guy turned 1 on June 23.
“Little crew took his 1st steps today,” the Fixer Upper star wrote on his Instagram page alongside a breathtaking pic of father and son’s special moment. “It was a good day!”
A good day just might be the understatement of the year for Chip and his wife Joanna, who have not only been basking in the happiness that comes with being the parents of five children but also their ongoing professional success as well.
“I have to remind myself that it’s possible nobody ever really knows what they’re doing and how it’s OK that we are hitting the ground running while simultaneously learning about this new venture all at once,” Joanna wrote as part of a recent blog entry about their new network, which is set to launch next summer.
“When I think back to what Chip and I have done together over the past 16 years, it all felt insurmountable at the time,” she continued. “Whether it was flipping our first house together, opening our own business or having kids, there were just so many unknowns.”
Most recently Joanna announced that the couple will be opening up a new coffee shop, Magnolia Press, in Waco Texas. The coffee shop is just one of many projects Chip and Joanna have in the works including their own television network, a new series for the network, a website and streaming app to name a few.
