Will Chip and Joanna Gaines Have Any More Kids?
Chip and Joanna Gaines have had a whirlwind year. They finished up their popular television show, Fixer Upper, and Joanna gave birth to their fifth Child, Crew Gaines. The couple had said a while back that they wanted another child. And sure enough, now they have five. But are they done having kids, or are there more on the way for this famous couple?
Chip and Joanna currently have five kids
The Gaines family is currently a family of seven. Joanna gave birth to their oldest child, Drake, about two years after they were married. Their other three kids came shortly after. In total, Joanna had four children in just under five years — the chaos of having so many young kids around seems unimaginable. But that’s partially why Chip and Joanna wanted a fifth child. In 2018, their family grew with the birth of their son, Crew. Despite mentioning they wanted a big family, Joanna did call her fifth pregnancy a surprise.
Joanna said her fifth pregnancy was different from her others
Joanna had four kids so close to one another that the Gaines household was almost always on its toes. It made it tough to truly embrace having those little ones around, since there was always so much going on. But now, Joanna said she can relax a bit and enjoy everything that comes with raising a newborn. Now that her kids are older, the process will likely be easier than it once was.
But Joanna said being pregnant at 40 did feel different than her past pregnancies. She said she has always enjoyed feeling pregnant and considers those nine months to be when she feels her best. But she did tell People she felt a bit more worn out than usual during this fifth pregnancy.
The couple has always said they want a big family, so more kids may be in the cards
Joanna also told People she truly thought she was done having children before her fifth. “It’s sweet how, even in the most unpredictable ways, we’re given exactly what we need for that exact moment in time,” she said of having baby Crew. Joanna once joked that she’d also be the type of woman to still be having babies at 45 and hinted the couple may not be done having kids yet.
When Joanna found out she was pregnant with Crew, her jaw dropped. It was the shock of a lifetime, but she said she and Chip were so excited. It wouldn’t surprise us if they wanted to feel that joy again. “Chip is such a kid at heart and we both love a big family,” she said in an interview. She also said that she’s just having fun with life right now and is open to whatever may happen down the road.
Right now, there’s no telling whether or not this Fixer Upper couple will end up with a sixth child or not. But we’re certain they make amazing parents to their five children (and we’re secretly hoping they have another little one down the road).
