The Real Reason Chip and Joanna Canceled Their Show...A Baby!

January 03, 2018

Several months ago, the news was released that Chip and Joanna Gaines would be stopping their show, “Fixer Upper.” Several different reasons were thrown around. While some of those might have had some truth, the real reason was just released.


The Gaines family is expecting another baby.


Chip teased the news for a few hours last night on Twitter. He gave three hints. In the first tweet, he told everyone to tune into “Fixer Upper” for some BIG news. He also shared clips of Chip and Joanna chanting “Number 5” in excerpts from their show.


He then shared, “Hint #2. Airing as we tweet #fixerUpper.”


And finally, the big news. Of course, he shared the news with a little bit too much detail. But hey, we’re overjoyed for the sweet family anyway!


Chip shared the exciting news on Instagram on Tuesday evening. In the picture he shared, you can see Joanna with a baby bump and Chip, pushing his stomach out, trying to match hers. Of course, in true Gaines style, the couple both have their hands on Chip’s belly, not Joanna’s.


The comment below the picture helps out those who didn’t catch onto the news from the picture. Chip wrote, “Gaines party of 7.. (If you’re still confused.. WE ARE PREGNANT).



Joanna later shared her own photo to social media. Her post is a classic pregnancy announcement with a photo of the sonogram. Her comment reads, “Chip swears he can already tell it’s a boy. Look at the little heartbeat!!!”



The Gaines family already has four kids. Drake is 12, Ella is 11, Duke is 9, and Emmie is 7. All of their sweet kids appear regularly on “Fixer Upper.”


While Chip and Joanna might not have their show anymore, I’m sure they’ll find ways to share their sweet new baby with the rest of us when the time comes! In the meantime, we can enjoy the last half of their final season!
