Chip and Joanna shocked fans in 2017 by saying the fifth season of Fixer Upper on HGTV would be their last.

They welcomed their fifth child this summer, a son named Crew.

The newborn joined his siblings, Emmie Kay, 8; Duke, 9; Ella, 11; and Drake, 13.

When they quit Fixer Upper, the Gaineses wrote in a statement, "Our family is healthy and our marriage has honestly never been stronger….This is just us recognizing that we need to catch our breath for a moment. Our plan is to take this time to shore up and strengthen the spots that are weak, rest the places that are tired and give lots of love and attention to both our family and our businesses."
