Joanna Gaines is soaking up the love from her newborn son!

"Cuddle bug [heart eyes emoji]" she captioned the photo, which shows the tiny infant all scrunched up on her chest, clad in a baby blue onesie.

It's been quite a while since Joanna had a newborn in the house. She and Chip are also parents to Emmie Kay, 8; Duke, 9; Ella, 11; and Drake, 13, but will be going back to diapers for their new son.

"I had been feeling a little emotional and crazy and thought, 'Wow, this isn't me,'" she said in May on her blog while reflecting on her first reaction to becoming a mom for the fifth time. "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."

But the couple couldn't be more excited.

"Our baby boy, Crew Gaines, is here & we couldn't be more in love," Chip wrote on Twitter to hail the arrival of his new son. "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 for all your thoughts and prayers. We are so grateful."

Fans haven't been able to get enough of the sweet HGTV family photos, and were quick to comment on the new photo.


Congratulations to the happy family (and keep the photos coming)!
