Weeks After Baby News, Chip & Joanna Gaines Drop Major Announcement About Their Pregnancy
Marilyn Caylor 3/9/2018
Last fall Chip and Joanna Gaines announced that the current season of their hit HGTV show Fixer Upper would be their last. It was a real bummer for all their fans, who wanted to see more of the Gaines', not less. However, fans would actually be seeing more "gaines" than they bargained for.
Earlier this year Chip and Joanna dropped a surprise announcement - they are pregnant! And now the big news that everyone has been waiting for has finally arrived. The happy couple have just revealed the gender of baby number five!
Yet, no matter what the gender, it's going to tip the equal balance of brothers vs. sisters. Chip and Joanna already have two boys and two girls - Drake, Duke, Ella, and Emmie. So, what's on the baby menu this time around? Are they serving up another boy, a girl, or... are the reports true that it's actually a dragon?!
It's not known if the couple held a private gender reveal party at their home in Texas, but they were more than eager to let the whole world know exactly "what" kind of baby they are having - it's a boy! After the announcement fans rejoiced over the news.
Of course, Chip knew all this time that another chip off the old block was on the way. Back in January when Joanna posted snaps on Instagram of their baby's ultrasound, she commented:
"Chip swears he can already tell it's a boy. Look at the little heartbeat!!"
Dad was spot on in his prediction, and this adorable "chip"munk is sure to be just as fun-loving as his dad. But, the lil' man almost came this close to being named after a flying reptile! Say whaaaaat?!
Since they're having a boy, Chip and Joanna want to stick with tradition of having the first name start with the letter 'D.' In the video clip below, Chip asks a sweet little kid by the name of Gage Spurlock to help them pick out a good 'D' name:
"It's a little boy and I need a 'D' name and so far all I could come up with is Dragon. And (Joanna was) like, 'You are not calling that baby Dragon.'"
In a world where celebrities give their kids silly names, having a Dragon to play with at school sounds a lot more fun than asking North West for directions, or hanging out with an Apple every day just to keep the doctor away.
Baby D still has quite a few months of one-on-one mommy time before he's ready to make his grand entrance. In the meantime, the couple can take the opportunity to cross all their I's and T's before they settle on a 'D.'
