Joanna Gaines Gets Super Real About Having A Newborn

If you’re a parent, you’ve been there. Heck, even Joanna Gaines has been there…four times before to be exact! But just because she has had four kids before, doesn’t make this fifth newborn any easier. In fact, she might be at a slight disadvantage because the last time she had a newborn was eight years ago!

Before giving birth to baby Crew on June 23, Joanna Gaines and her husband Chip, who rose to fame on their HGTV show Fixer Upper, were already parents to Drake (13), Ella (11), Duke (9), and Emmie (8).

Since Crew’s birth, the parents have been sharing picture-perfect photos of the baby cuddling with every family member, each photo being cuter than the last!

Parenting a newborn doesn’t always look this perfect and Joanna proved that she knows this all too well! In her latest social media post, Joanna revealed that she spent most of her Saturday night up with Crew who, from the looks of things, was needing diaper and clothing changes because of the epic blowouts he was providing.

Evidence of a late night up with my boy,” she captioned the photo along with the hashtags “#Blowouts,” “#AllNighters,” and “ThisIs40.”

His usually spotless nursery looked a little disheveled with open dresser drawers, blankets, dirty (and clean) diapers, and a box of open wipes strewn all over the floor.

She cut little Crew’s face out of the photo, but we’re sure he’s either sound asleep, or giggling at what he just made his mama do for him! Either way, there is one thing we can all agree on: nights like this are totally worth it!
