The home makeover duo has been busy the past couple years getting their show up and running, as well as opening other small businesses down in Waco that have made them the ever-popular stars they deserve to be.
And of course, they did all of this while raising their four children: Drake, 12; Ella, 11; Duke, 9; and Emmie Kay, 7.
No matter how popular, however, the disappointing news was released to fans last fall about the show’s future: that season five would be its last.
“We are really, really proud of season five,” Chip said about the final season, which was to include special guest appearances — from Tim Tebow to former President and First Lady George and Laura Bush. “We laid it all on the field and didn’t hold anything back.”
However, the Gaineses admitted the reason for the tough decision was equal parts making more time for their four kids back home and making room for one on the way.
The pregnancy was announced via social media — much to the adoration and anticipation of fans.
From updates on her baby bump to midnight cravings, the ever-popular house renovator and mom has recently been posting updates for her followers.
Including the gender of baby #5!
HGTV posted a link on their Instagram page today announcing the sex of the newest addition to the Gaines family.
It looks like Ella and Emmie are going to be outnumbered. Baby #5 is going to be a BOY!
Joanna said Chip was guessing “boy” back in January during her ultrasound. I’m sure he’s giddy knowing he was right.
Congratulations Chip, Jo, Drake, Ella, Duke, and Emmie! Wishing you a healthy pregnancy and many years of happiness with your newest addition to the family.
