Joanna Gaines Turns Bookstore Into Dance Club With Her “Little Sidekick” Crew


As a wife and a mother and a business owner, Joanna Gaines has quite her hands full. But when those hands are also full with her son Crew, it’s downright adorable.

“Dance party on aisle 3,” Gaines wrote on her Instagram page on Tuesday (March 26) alongside of a video of her and baby Crew looking sweet. “I stopped by the Barnes & Noble in Palm Springs today and secretly signed a few books to celebrate the launch of We Are the Gardeners.”

“When you’re out of town for work on the day of book launch, so you host an unannounced book reading… and only one kid shows up,” Gaines also posted on Instagram on Tuesday (March 26.)

Indeed, Gaines admits that she loves having Crew as her sidekick these days.

“He comes to work with me every day and goes to all my meetings,” Gaines tells People magazine. “There’s literally a sign-up sheet because everyone wants to hold him.”

The now mother of five says that her children have changed her life, and she loves it.

“I kid with people, ‘If you ever want to feel young again, have a baby at 40,’” she says. “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.”

So could more children be possible?

“Heck if I know,” Joanna shares, shrugging. “I thought I was done, and then we had Crew. No plans for another baby but then again, we’ve never been planners anyway.”
