After 4 kids, and the youngest being in school, Fixer Upper star Joanna Gaines and her husband Chip Gaines thought they were done with kids… but nope! They welcomed a baby boy named Crew in June–but she says she never expected to have a fifth child at the age of 40. “I truly believed I was done,” Gaines writes in a new essay for The Magnolia Journal. “And yet, after eight years, here I am with a newborn in my arms.” She goes on to say that she was initially amused by doctors using the phrase geriatric pregnancy. “I laughed until I realized that’s what it’s actually called at my age,” she admits. “I feel like a first-time mom all over again. But, as hard and good and exhausting as it is, I’m seeing that I was made ready for this season just as much as I was made ready for the last.”
