For Chip and Joanna Gaines, tradition is everything. That shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise to the former Fixer Upper stars’ fans, who know that they’re not only raising five children — including one newborn — but also running a restaurant, a magazine, a home goods shop, two rental homes, and a real estate business together. (Whew!) Maintaining family traditions — even something as simple as baking biscuits on weekends — adds a dash of stability to Chip and Joanna’s otherwise hectic lives and creates opportunities for their family to bond.
Joanna recently took to Instagram to share a tradition that Chip is continuing with Crew, their youngest child, one that he started more than a decade ago when their eldest son, Drake, was born. If you’re an expectant parent, you’ll probably be tempted to start doing something similar when your own children arrive!
