The Gaines family is all set and super excited to welcome their fifth child! Joanna and Chip Gaines, famous for the house-flipping show Fixer Upper, are proud parents of four kids and currently expecting a baby boy.
Joanna says this pregnancy is very special to her, and she feels like a new mom despite being 40 and having four kids already. Her youngest daughter is 8 years old, so it's been a while for a future baby mama. In addition, Joanna says there are so many things helping new moms that she missed during her last pregnancy.
It feels like it’s all brand-new, even the things that are available now to moms. Everything is so fun, these things are really going to help me!
With the wrap-up of their show, new baby was the last thing on the Gaines' minds. Joanna revealed her fifth pregnancy was a major surprise but not an unwelcome one.
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.
Joanna and Chip's other kids share their parents' excitement and can't wait to meet their baby brother. Mom-to-be said she broke the news to Drake, Duke, Emmie, and Ella in an unusual manner.
I had all these onesies out that [said] ‘big brother’ and ‘big sister’ and I made them turn around and look at it. And it took them all a second to figure out what the heck it was about.
Once the children realized their mom is pregnant, they got very happy and, to this day, keep asking how long until the new baby comes. They were all born relatively close to each other, so they're looking forward to helping out with a newborn.
We hope Joanna's pregnancy goes smoothly and can't wait to see the photos of a soon-to-be family of seven!
