The question is, are Chip and Joanna Gaines gearing up for Baby No. 5? The happily married couple already host four kids, and rumors have surfaced whether they’re planning a fifth.
The home renovation stars are currently filming their fifth season of Fixer Upper, and have a long way to go before the season is finished. In the midst of their busy schedules, they have managed to raise two girls and two boys: Emmie (6), Duke (8), Ella (9), and Drake (11).
The Gaines’s are customarily shy about sharing their kids with media outlets, although Joanna has featured them on social media outlets from time to time. The kids are usually absent from photo shoots involving Fixer Upper.
“They’re so young and we want to give them the chance to have a normal childhood,” Joanna shared last fall, reported by Inquisitor. “So they don’t really understand that we have a show. They don’t get it.”
Apparently Joanna has pushed for a fifth child, but Chip is digging his heels.
“I’m trying to talk him into another child,” Joanna said. “But he’s not interested.”
Another rumor surfacing around the popular couple is whether Joanna is planning to leave Fixer Upper to spearhead a makeup line. She was recently featured in an ad involving skin care products. The ad, she says, was a scam, and she is certainly not leaving the show, much to the satisfaction of her fans.
“At this point in our career we can honestly say, we’ve heard it all – from reports of us moving our family to Vegas to us having more or less children than we actually have,” she wrote on her blog. “So remember, you can’t believe everything you read.”
