Chip and Joanna Gaines are known for taking something that's been neglected and making it spring back to life. Their wildly popular Fixer Upper show on HGTV showed the world that with a little love and attention, anything can be made whole again.
Unfortunately, long days on the set has meant that Chip and Joanna Gaines have gone through a lot of "fixer upper" situations in their own lives. Last year they finally decided that Season 5 would be their last - they needed time to catch their breath!
Well, it turns out that Chip and Joanna had another reason for quitting the show, and they certainly won't have any spare time to catch their breath in the coming months. The couple announced the news last night, much to the surprise of their fans. They were very clear in their message!
Although they are famous for their beautiful home renovations, this time Chip and Joanna decided to make something from scratch. Chip tweeted a series of messages that had fans wondering what the big news was.
As fans watched the latest episode of Fixer Upper, Chip sent out live tweets with very few hints - but, that just kept everyone excited about the upcoming surprise. Was there going to be a new, even better show on the horizon?
Not quite, but a new star was about to be born into the Magnolia Market empire. The couple already have four children, and they had them one right after the other: Drake, 12, Ella, 11, Duke, 9, and Emmie Kay, 7. But, working nonstop on the show has meant there's been a dry spell in the growth of their family.
Thankfully, that is all about to change - Chip and Joanna have officially announced that they are pregnant with baby number five! In the photo he posted to Instagram, a very cheeky Chip is proudly showing the world just how big his pregnant belly has grown, while Joanna touches his tummy to feel the invisible baby kick. Joanna's own adorable baby bump is definitely visible, too!
Joanna posted an ultrasound snapshot of the real baby, who Chip insists is going to be his new son.
"Chip swears he can already tell it's a boy. Look at the little heartbeat!!"
Aww, this is so sweet - this little tyke looks like he can take on the world and show dad that he's going to be more than just a "chip" off the old block.
Fans everywhere are excitedly congratulating the couple. This is the biggest news since the couple announced that the current Season 5 of Fixer Upper would be their last!
The show's cancellation is bittersweet, but Chip and Joanna have something even sweeter on the way, and we can't wait for the little "guy" to finally make his, or her, worldwide appearance.
