“Fixer Upper” stars Chip and Joanna Gaines shocked fans on Tuesday evening after they announced Joanna was pregnant with their fifth child. The exciting announcement came several months after false pregnancy rumors circulated during summer of last year.
Chip announced his wife’s pregnancy in a series of social media hints starting with a video that emphasized Joanna’s liking towards pickles and ice cream—the infamous pregnancy craving. He later followed up with a Tweet that said, “We are officially pregnant. And I could not be more EXCITED!”
On Instagram, Chip also posted a hilarious photo comparing his and his wife’s “baby bumps”—the official first baby bump photo.
On Wednesday, January 3rd, Joanna shared something special to follow up with their shocking pregnancy announcement—an ultrasound video. The video showed a brief image of the growing baby and his or her heartbeat.
Joanna revealed that her husband “swears he can already tell it’s a boy.”
The happy couple currently has two boys, 12-year-old Drake and 9-year-old Duke, and two girls, 11-year-old Ella and 7-year-old Emmie Kay.
It is unclear exactly how far along Joanna is in her pregnancy, but fans are looking forward to the official gender reveal.
