Chip Gaines 'surprised' wife Joanna with a new addition to their family: Photo!

Chip and Joanna Gaines' ever-expanding brood continues to grow!

The former "Fixer Upper" stars welcomed a new addition to their family over the weekend, with Joanna taking to Instagram to reveal that her husband "surprised" the clan with a new English Mastiff dog.

"Chip told me he hadn't surprised us in a while with a new animal and that it was long overdue," Joanna captioned a post containing three photos of their latest pet, including one with 1-year-old Crew. "We now have more dogs than children."

The Gaines' new dog joins a full house of kids and pets, including six dogs, as well as cats, cows, goats and chickens. Of course, the couple also has five children: Drake, 14, Ella Rose, 12, Duke, 10, Emmie Kay, 9, and Crew, 1.

Last month, Chip and Joanna celebrated their youngest child's first birthday -- as well as his first steps just days later! -- with a pair of adorable Instagram posts.

"I can't believe Baby Crew is already ONE!" Joanna captioned a photo of herself holding her youngest son. "This joyful, funny, easy-going, sidekick of mine sure is easy to celebrate."

"Little crew took his 1st steps today," Chip said on his own page. "It was a good day!"

10 facts you didn't know about 'Fixer Upper' stars Chip and Joanna Gaines

They both attended Baylor University, but the two actually didn't meet in school! 

Jo's father owned tire shop and he saw a picture of her hanging behind the store counter. He convinced himself he was gonna marry Jo even before they had actually met.

Jo was a communications major at Baylor University and she had dreams of becoming a broadcast journalist. 

Before getting her big break on "Fixer Upper," she actually appeared in commercials for her father's tire shop. Chip eventually used the commercial in a pick-up line when they first met ... and the rest is history!

As for Chip, he had other aspirations, like being a baseball player or politician. 

If it ain't broke, don't fix it! Chip stays loyal to his favorite clothing brands. In fact, he's worn the same style of jeans and boots since they got married in 2003 -- Gap 1969 standard-fit jeans and Ariat boots.

His ladylove, on the other hand, prefers Citizen low-rise skinny jeans and Frye boots. 

As you can probably tell from all their renovations on "Fixer Upper," Jo loves to decorate with pretty blooms and greenery. Her favorite flower? Pink antique roses.
Chip and Jo's Pinterest-perfect farmhouse sits on 40 acres of land, which is just big enough for their 60 animals to roam around in.
Jo knew the value of hard work even when she was very young. Her first job? At an all-you-can-eat buffet. To this day, she says still appreciates buffet lines, but her husband has different thoughts on the matter.

The couple's first fixer-upper home? Their very own abode that they started working on soon after their honeymoon. The 1,700-square-foot Victorian home they currently live in is the ninth home they've lived in and renovated together.

The name "Magnolia," which they named all their businesses after (Magnolia Homes, Magnolia Market, Magnolia Farms) holds a special meaning. When they first started dating, Chip would bring blooms from Magnolia trees to Jo.

The Gaines family doesn't own a television! They go over to a friend's house every week to watch their own "Fixer Upper" episodes or in their hotel room during trips.
