How Many Kids Do Chip and Joanna Gaines Have?
If there’s one thing fans know for sure about Chip and Joanna Gaines, it’s that family is so important to them. And their family is certainly large – especially compared to the national average.
The pair rose to fame thanks to their hit HGTV show, Fixer Upper. The series followed the renovation pros as they tackled the huge task of turning houses into homes using their signature touch. But it wasn’t just professional ability that made people fall in love with the Gaineses.
Unlike some celebrities, Chip and Joanna Gaines have always been open about including their children on the television show, often showing scenes from their own personal farmhouse home or inviting their kids on set to help with renovations. Through the show, fans got to know the whole family, and they were enamored by Chip and Joanna themselves and how they were raising their kids. The family aspect was a huge part of the appeal.
Who are the Gaines children?
Right now, Chip and Joanna Gaines have five children, making them a family of seven. But that works for the Texas-based pair who said in the past that they love having a big family and always wanted one. That’s why the surprise news of Joanna’s fifth pregnancy was met with so much joy and anticipation.
The Gaines family has three boys and two girls. Their oldest son was born 2 years after they were married. Drake is 13, Ella is 11, Duke is 10, and Emmie Kay is 8. Their new baby boy Crew was born in June of 2018.
What are Chip and Joanna like as parents?
Joanna is a self-described perfectionist when it comes to designing and decorating homes for her clients. When it comes to motherhood, however, she’s a lot more easygoing. The Gaineses don’t have a television in the house, but rather spend their days playing in the great outdoors and even helping with farm chores.
Joanna likes making food from scratch, sitting on the porch, and of course, snuggling with her babies. Chip is a fun dad, constantly engaging his children in active play while teaching them the value of a hard day’s work, just like his father did for him.
Will they have more kids?
Chip Gaines recently shocked fans during an interview with People magazine when he revealed the family might not be complete just yet.
He said, “It’s hard to believe this little turkey will only be 10 years old when Emmie is graduating from high school. 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!”
Joanna admitted that her fifth pregnancy was harder than the others, but she has also said in the past that she can envision herself still having babies at 45 (she’s 40 now). As for the future, it’s anyone’s guess. One thing that’s likely to stay the same? The love they all have for each other — and big family life.
