It's Official! Chip and Joanna Gaines Are Expecting Baby Number Five!
It’s official—America’s most charming family is expanding and leave it to Chip Gaines to add some humor to the big reveal. On Tuesday evening, the carpenter-turned-TV star posted a photo to Instagram of him and Joanna in matching grey tops, both sporting rounded bellies. Although the photo shows all eyes and hands on Chips tummy, there is no denying Joanna is carrying this one.
Chip’s caption reads, “Gaines party of 7.. (If you’re still confused.. WE ARE PREGNANT) @joannagaines.”
The excitement hardly ends there, Wednesday morning Joanna finally weighed in on the news with an ultrasound picture she shared via Instagram. According to the post, the couple has their suspicions it's a boy!
“Chip swears he can already tell it’s a boy. Look at the little heartbeat!! ??❤️❤️ #5,” Joanna writes.
The house flipping experts already have a full crew at home with two boys and two girls, but the picture-perfect couple has discussed wanting one more child throughout their show Fixer Upper.
It wasn’t until right before the premiere of their final season of Fixer Upper, which aired on HGTV Tuesday night, that the couple hinted at their pregnancy. In the sneak peek Chip says, “Anytime she asks for pickles on top of that ice cream, you know what that means.”
It’s obvious that Chip can’t contain his excitement, he even tweeted about the moment the baby was conceived.
“Hint #3 You might recall a few months back.. the ever amazing, ever romantic @JOHNNYSWIM was in Waco. And they put on a little too romantic of a concert.. anyways, one thing led to another, & we are officially pregnant. And I could not be more EXCITED! #5 #7ThePerfectNumber,” he wrote.
Five is the reoccurring number in the Gaines’ life right now—with Fixer Upper ending after its fifth season while baby number five is on its way, it's clear this power couple has their hands full.
Congratulations to the lovely couple on their expanding family, we can't wait to see what incredible things 2018 brings for the soon-to-be party of seven!
