Ambitious Parents: Joanna And Chip Gaines Are Considering Having A 6th Baby, So That Their Youngest One Wasn't Alone

Date September 10, 2019 12:48

While Chip and Joanna Gaines are a lot of incredible things, one of their best qualities is being great parents. Currently, the Fixer Upper and Magnolia Market duo manage a house of five children: Drake,13, Ella,12, Duke,9, Emmie,8, and baby Crew.

Is baby 6 in the cards?

Since the age gap between Emmie and baby Crew is enough to leave him lonely for many years after she goes off to college, Chip revealed it's quite possible Crew will get a younger sibling to boss around when that time comes.

“It’s hard to believe this little turkey will only be 10 years old when Emmie is graduating from high school,” Chip told the magazine. “I think we have to have another one because I’m particular about the only child thing. Crew needs a sister to manage this whole thing out. Don’t be surprised if No. 6 is in the cards!”

The Fixer Upper stars welcomed Crew in June, and have clearly been loving having another little one around the farmhouse, as their sweet family outings and relaxing moments together show.

But Jo doesn’t quite seem on board for more babies just yet, because she admits pregnancy was harder at 40 than it had been for her other children.

“I was limping into work and I couldn’t breathe,”

she said.

“At 40, it’s definitely a little different.”

In the past, though, Jo has said she might not be ready to stop at five, saying she’s “open to whatever” happens. Plus, her sister, Mary Kay, just welcomed baby number six, so perhaps we'll be hearing about baby number 6 soon?
