This summer, “Fixer Upper” stars Chip and Joanna Gaines will be welcoming a new baby into the world! The couple made the exciting announcement that they are pregnant earlier this year.
With the addition of a new baby, the Gaines family will become a family of five! The new sibling will join brothers Drake and Duke, as well as sisters Ella Rose and Emmie Kay.
In April, Joanna Gaines talked about what it’s like to be pregnant again. She revealed that this feels like her first time being pregnant since there is a seven-year gap between this child and her youngest daughter Emmie Kay.
Now, the beloved designer has opened up to PEOPLE about her pregnancy and about finding out the exciting news.
She said, “I had been feeling a little emotional and crazy and thought, ‘Wow, this isn’t me.’”
After reflecting on her emotional state, she realized, “Hey, I remember this!” That’s when she decided to take a pregnancy test.
She said, “When I saw the results of the test, my jaw dropped. Chip was in the driveway about to leave when I called him back and said, ‘We’re pregnant!’ He was so excited. We’re both just so excited.”
The couple found out they were pregnant just after announcing that they would be ending their popular show, “Fixer Upper.” Thankfully, fans have something else to congratulate them on now!
When talking about the decision to end the show, Joanna said, “We had a lot on our plates, and at some point, you have to call those shots when you feel like you need a break.”
