HGTV’s Chip and Joanna Gaines stopped by the Today show this morning, November 6, and they bought a super special guest — their 4-month-old son Crew! Read on to see pictures of the little one and for all the details on the Fixer Upper parents’ chat with Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie.
Though Joanna has just released her new book, Homebody: A Guide to Creating Spaces You Never Want to Leave, and is already mom to four other kids, she insisted that little Crew “has slowed down time for her family.”
She also admitted that her husband really wants to have another baby. “I love the process of being pregnant. I love giving birth. So we don’t wanna rule it out,” she said.
The 40-year-old also credited Crew’s older siblings with making the process of welcoming a new baby a lot smoother. “Not that we’re having more babies, but it’s so easy. When you have a gap from age 8 to this, newborn, it’s easy,” she shared.
The HGTV couple’s appearance comes just days after Joanna took to Instagram to open up about her struggles with mom guilt. She wrote, in part, “I know at times it can be hard to find simple ways to connect with your kids. Especially in the tired and the hard and busy times in life. It can feel like it's all or nothing. But I really believe it's somewhere in the middle where the grace is extended and these simple, unplanned moments are actually the sweetest.”
"I write all this for any of you out there who may experience 'mom-guilt'. I promise you that's a never ending cycle that leads to nowhere. Replace the word guilt with grace. Look for grace in the moments, the small wins that lead to the greatest investments in their little hearts,” she added.
