The Gaines family is growing again!
Chip and Joanna Gaines announced on Tuesday that they are expecting their fifth child.
The Fixer Upper stars shared the good news via Instagram with an adorable photo that showcased both mom and dad’s “bumps” under their forest green tops.
“Gaines party of 7.. (If you’re still confused.. WE ARE PREGNANT) @joannagaines,” Chip captioned the announcement pic.
Chip and Joanna announced in September that they would be ending their extremely popular HGTV show after its fifth season, in part to spend more time with their kids. One month later, they told ET that it was not because Joanna was pregnant, however.
“There’s so many [rumors], even leading up to it — I had this skincare line, so I’m leaving. It made it look like I was doing my own thing and Chip didn’t even know about it. That was just a big rumor,” Joanna told ET’s Kevin Frazier. “That our marriage is on the rocks… I was pregnant. It’s funny when you start hearing this stuff. I was like, ‘I guess people can just make stuff up.'”
According to Chip’s possibly TMI tweet after both the Instagram post and the pregnancy reveal on Tuesday’s episode of Fixer Upper, the fifth-time parents-to-be may not have known they were pregnant when they spoke to ET back in mid-October. According to Chip’s social media post, their fifth pregnancy can be traced back to JOHNNYSWIM’s Oct. 12 concert in Waco.
“…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,” Chip wrote in part, to which the band adorably responded, “We do what we can!”
Now that Joanna is pregnant, it looks like they’ll have a brand-new production to look forward to in the new year. Congratulations, Chip and Joanna!
