Chip Gaines says wife Joanna could have baby number six very soon
The couple is already parents to 13-year-old Drake, 12-year-old Ella, nine-year-old Duke, eight-year-old Emmie, and four-month-old baby Crew
Former HGTV Fixer Upper co-stars Chip and Joanna Gaines never thought that they would have five children but after they welcomed their fifth son Crew in June this year, the proud father said that they aren't going to completely rule out the fact that one more baby could be added to the already big brood.
The couple is already parents to 13-year-old Drake, 12-year-old Ella, 9-year-old Duke, 8-year-old Emmie and four-month-old Crew.
Chip told PEOPLE: "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, on the other, is not very sure about having another child. She admitted to the magazine that her latest pregnancy had been more difficult compared to the previous ones. She said: "When I first got pregnant I kept telling everyone at the office, 'Guys, I am my best self when I’m pregnant'. And then, for whatever reason, I was limping into work and I couldn’t breathe. At 40, it’s definitely a little different."
Whatever the decision for the future may be, Joanna has said that she and Chip are thoroughly enjoying this "sweet season" with their newborn. The arrival of their latest child is only one of the things the couple is celebrating. Joanna's new book, "Homebody: A Guide to Creating Spaces You Never Want to Leave", will be hitting the shelves on November 6.
Speaking of the detailed guide that includes photos and examples of design from her own farmhouse and other homes she has designed, Joanna said: "I feel like it’s my life’s work. That’s what I love about life. It’s these surprises, and at first, you sit there and go, 'How does that fit?' And now that it’s all happened I can’t imagine life any other way. I’ve never been so happy."
