Meet Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Kids, Including Their Newest Member Baby Crew
When it comes to Chip and Joanna Gaines’ kids, the Fixer Upper stars do their best to keep their babies out of the spotlight. That said, with kids as sweet as theirs, they can’t help but share a glimpse into their lives from time to time.
Learn more about the Gaines kids, including their newest member, baby Crew, ahead.
Chip and Joanna Gaines’ kids
Despite their celebrity status, normalcy is sacred to Chip and Joanna — especially when it comes to parenting. With that in mind, the Fixer Upper stars encourage their children to play outside, help with household chores, learn new hobbies, and interact with others.
In order to make sure their kids grow up in this way, the Gaineses don’t have a television in their home and won’t allow their children to have phones until they’re in college. While this might sound a bit harsh to a kid born in the 21st century, the Gaines kids don’t seem phased by it, as they enjoy playing basketball outside their family’s farmhouse, picking vegetables in the family garden, and even helping their parents fix up houses.
Although they keep their kids out of the spotlight as much as possible, Chip and Joanna’s firstborn, Drake has made a handful of appearances on Fixer Upper. Named after the New York City hotel Chip and Joanna stayed at on their honeymoon, Drake seems to be both athletic and hand — just like his dad. In fact, he’s inherited a number of Chip’s interests, including his love for baseball and demo day.

Ella Rose Gaines
Two years after Drake’s arrival, Ella Rose Gaines was born. Like Joanna, Ella Rose has grown to love cooking and often helps her mom in the kitchen — but that’s not the only thing the two have in common. In addition to cooking and baking, Ella Rose is growing into quite the entrepreneur and Joanna is one proud mama. “Her new summer business is selling baked goods at the office when she goes to work with me,” Joanna shared on Instagram. “Tonight we stayed up late and she made Aunt Opal’s banana pudding and the chocolate chip cookies from my cookbook. She’s going to make a heck of a business woman,” she added.
Like his brother (and dad), Duke Gaines also has the baseball itch. But, that’s not the only quality he’s inherited from his parents. Like his mother, Duke loves to read. “Duke man found a book he can’t put down… love it when my kids find books they want to read voluntarily,” Chip shared on Twitter. In addition, Duke has been known to help out in the garden, too. “He welcomes me home with this bounty and then asked if we could pickle some pepper together,” Joanna shared on Instagram.
Emmie Kay Gaines
Chip and Joanna’s youngest daughter, Emmie Kay Gaines has made a handful of appearances on their hit HGTV show, Fixer Upper. And, like her mom, she has a green thumb. In an Instagram post, Joanna shared a sweet photo of her plant collection, with the caption: “Emmie Kay’s little plant friends… I don’t have a clue what her watering schedule is or how she keeps up with all of these cuties but she is proving herself to be quite the #plantlady.”
In addition to her houseplants, Emmie Kay has also taken an interest in entrepreneurship. The youngest Gaines daughter creates her own floral arrangements and sells them at her parents’ Magnolia office.
On June 23, 2018, Chip and Joanna welcomed their fifth baby into the world. “Our baby boy, Crew Gaines, is here and we couldn’t be more in love. 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,” Joanna wrote on Instagram.
Chip and Joanna shared they were pregnant back in January 2018 with an adorable Instagram post of the couple showing off their bellies and a caption that read “Gaines party of 7.” Albeit a complete shock, Chip and Joanna were excited to welcome another member to their family and look forward to this new season of life.
