Chip and Joanna Gaines are expecting their fifth child soon — but it turns out Joanna’s pregnancy came totally out of the blue. In an interview with People magazine, Joanna said she had no idea she was pregnant, but started feeling a bit odd.
“I had been feeling a little emotional and crazy and thought, ‘Wow, this isn’t me,'” she said. “Then all of a sudden I realized, ‘Hey, I remember this.’ When I saw the results of the test, my jaw dropped.”
When she told Chip her good news, his reaction was priceless. “Chip was in the driveway about to leave when I called him back and said, ‘We’re pregnant!’” she said. “He. We’re both just so excited.”
They had already decided to end Fixer Upper, and the baby wasn’t part of that decision. “When we were done, we had no plan like, ‘Let’s have baby No. 5,’” she said. “It was a total surprise. But when we found out, it solidified that it was the right decision to leave when we did.”
The couple have been mum about their due date, but Chip noted that the baby was conceived after a concert in Waco back in October. So if he was telling the truth, that puts the due date sometime in July. They're also staying quiet about the baby name, but noted it might not follow their family tradition of starting boys' names with the letter 'D' like their sons, Drake and Duke. If Jo gets her way, their baby's name will start with a 'C.'
