Joanna Gaines Hosts an 'Unannounced Book Reading' — Just for Son Crew! See the Cute Video
Joanna Gaines' first children's book, We Are the Gardeners, is available now on amazon.com
Joanna Gaines‘ 9-month-old son was the only lucky audience member during an “unannounced” reading of her first children’s book, We Are the Gardeners, which the former Fixer Upper star chronicled on her Instagram account Tuesday to celebrate its release.
At the beginning of the clip, the baby boy raises his arms in the air and claps as his mom reads out loud but is soon more interested in something that’s distracting him off camera.

When Joanna found out she was pregnant with her fifth child, the Magnolia mogul was surprised, to say the least. But after welcoming baby Crew last June, she says that he has changed her in ways she never could have imagined.
“I kid with people, ‘If you ever want to feel young again, have a baby at 40,’ ” she says in the latest issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday. “It’s brought this whole new thing for me where I’m a lot more laid-back. People joke that I’m the ‘Fun Jo’ now.”
“I realized there has to be spontaneity, and schedules kind of go out the door,” she explains. “It’s like, ‘Hey, if I don’t get to it, it’s fine.’ I’ve just relaxed so much more, and it’s been fun for me.”
Crew regularly tags along for work duties with his HGTV star mom. As Joanna explains to PEOPLE of her adorable youngest child, “He’s my little sidekick.”
“He comes to work with me every day and goes to all my meetings,” she reveals. “There’s literally a sign-up sheet because everyone wants to hold him.”
We Are the Gardeners is available now on amazon.com in hardcover, audiobook, audio CD and Kindle format.
