Other fans left comments like, “Too cute! That innocence and sweetness warms your heart,” “Soooo precious! We need more love like this in the world right now,” and “So adorable, he’s beginning to see how his work has been rewarded!! They’re growing!!!!”

Some followers were overwhelmed by the touching moment, with comments like, “He’s so adorable. What a sweetheart,” “Oh my goodness … brings tears to my eyes. What a beautiful heart,” and “This warms my heart.”

Many followers agreed that Joanna has influenced her little one in such a positive way. “Oh my goodness, the apple doesn’t fall to far from the tree,” one of her fans commented. “His precious love for nature is just like yours.”

“He is so lovely, a mini version of his mommy!!,” another follower said.

Joanna Gaines shared her love of plants with the theme ‘nurture’

In a Feb. 12 Instagram post, Gaines shared a video about the spring theme at her Magnolia Market. “I love plants, we all love plants,” Gaines said in the video. “The theme for this season is ‘nurture’ and one of the projects I told the team that I will tackle … I told them I would help with the propagation wall, which will be the main wall you see right when you walk in.”

She shared that some of the plants came from Fixer Upper, as well as “styling moments that we’ve done for marketing.” She also grabbed some plant cuttings from people in the office, who, Gaines shared, “take their plants very seriously.”

She placed the cuttings in vases on the wall and shared how much the “plant babies” meant to her. “I got to start those little propagations. I think they’re my little plant babies,” Gaines explained. “Every day I had to check on them and the fact they are now on full display in that front wall, it just feels like it’s an honor to be a part of that story.”
