The 40-year-old revealed that her fifth pregnancy is very sweet as she is experiencing a lot of sugar cravings. She said:

 Anything a 5-year-old or younger would love is what I am craving right now, which is so weird!

She went on describing how her cravings differed from when she was pregnant with her other children:

With the boys, it was always something citrusy and right now, I am craving oranges and lemons. And then with the girls, I wanted salty.

Reflecting on expecting a baby at 40, she said that the motherhood got less difficult as there are a lot of things helping moms to make their life easier, like the “swaddle things.

Joanna also shared that she is enjoying her pregnancy a lot more because her other kids are older now and she doesn’t have to run after them, and having 4 little helpers is always a bonus.

The only thing the Fixer Upper star is struggling with is how to name the baby. The Gaines' house got divided over it, but Joanna says:

I say he got the boy, so I get to pick the name.

The couple already has four beautiful children, 2 boys with names that begin with D - Drake and Duke - and two girls with names that begin with E - Ella and Emmie.

We can only guess that the new baby will have the name that starts either with D or E.
