Chip and Joanna Gaines are well-versed in the joys a child can bring to a family.

And they recently just added to another family’s joy by gifting them their youngest son’s cradle.

On Instagram last week, Chip shared a photo of their growing 8-month-old son, Crew, in his “snoo.” Chip also used the cute picture to point out that his son had grown out of his cradle and asked his fans what they should do with it.

Chip wrote:

Uh oh.. what happens when they out grow the #snoo??

One fan responded by suggesting that Chip and Joanna sell it to her.

The fan added that she and her husband are “FINALLY” expecting their first child together after 12 years of trying, saying that their unborn child has been a long time coming.

Chip saw the expecting new mom’s comment and responded. Read the exchange below:

Chip wrote:

We’re so excited for you! Let’s get her set up.

Others praised Chip for “having the biggest heart” before a very surprised mom-to-be responded back, saying:

WHAT!!!!! Thank You!!!

Another commenter added:

This thread made me cry my work makeup right off… how unbelievably sweet and congratulations on expecting your first little one!

The expecting mom later replied explaining their journey to where they are now:

We have been trying for a baby for several years. We decided not to do fertility treatments and pray, pray, pray. My mom died out of the clear blue and it was emotionally hard to dream that a baby was going to be in our future ever. Then right before Christmas we found out that after so long we were finally pregnant. Everything is going great. It pays to pray!
