Chip & Joanna Gaines Announce They’re Expecting Baby #5


In the first episode of this season of “Fixer Upper,” the Gaines couple announced they’re expecting baby #5 in the cutest and most adorable way. This means that we may be losing our favorite Fixer Upper show, but nothing beats the joy the Gaines family is getting.

With the cutest photo on Instagram, Chip announced the news, captioning the photo “Gaines party of 7.. (if you’re still confused.. WE ARE PREGNANT)”

This photo announcement comes after a series of teasing announcements on Twitter, hinting at the big news for the family of 6 we’ve all come to love. Pickles on ice cream, anyone?

And Chip even went into sharing how the new baby exactly came to be…

The family of 6 is now expecting a seventh member. Drake, 12, Ella, 11, Duke, 9, and Emmie Kay, 7, must be as excited as their parents for the new bundle of joy that’s going to make #7ThePerfectNumber.

However, all this joyful news comes with a side of sad news for the fans of Chip and Joanna’s show. In September 2017, the Gaineses announced that this season of Fixer Upper will be the last.

“It is with both sadness and expectation that we share the news that Season 5 of Fixer Upper will be our last. While we are confident that this is the right choice for us, it has for sure not been an easy one to come to terms with. Our family has grown up alongside yours, and we have felt you rooting us on from the other side of the screen. How bittersweet to say goodbye to the very thing that introduced us all in the first place.”

Congratulations on the fabulous news, Gaines family!

While you will be missed, we all know that you’re in for a ride of your lives that is much more important! Kudos for the lucky baby to be born to such a fun-loving family.
