The house-flipping couple Joanna and Chip Gaines are finally able to focus on their family after their show, Fixer Upper, has come to an end. Although bittersweet, the couple embraced the finale of their project and moved on to other things. They’ve already opened a restaurant, Magnolia Table, and are now waiting for the baby number five.
Joanna has been pregnant four times before, but she says the fifth pregnancy isn’t as easy as she thought it would’ve been.
It’s been over 8 years since I was pregnant with Emmie Kay. I joke with my friends that it feels like it’s my first time being pregnant.
The couple’s kids are also super excited to welcome their baby brother this summer. The four kids are fascinated with Joanna’s pregnancy, as they were born too close to one another, and have never experienced it before.
The best thing about all of this is the excitement that my kids have shown for their new baby brother…They love my growing belly (and boy is it growing), and they cannot wait to meet him.
The closeness of the children might be attributed to Joanna and Chip’s parenting style. The couple is somewhat strict with technology. They don’t have a TV, and they think children should get their first cellphones in college. “I think I’m like, a quarter Amish…I don’t like normal technological advances,” Chip joked.
Instead of staying in the house, the couple makes their kids get out and play together outside. Joanna and Chip encourage their children experience the real world and not get caught up in the virtual reality.
Their future kid is going to be very lucky to be a part of such a close and loving family.
