Chip and Joanna Gaines are warning their fans about the online scammers who have been luring people into their trap by pretending to be them. Chip and Joanna have managed to bring wide smiles on many with their show Fixer Upper but it looks like someone is trying to take advantage of it. According to the Gaines, if someone tries contacting you with regard to a makeover by them, simply do not engage because it is all a scam. 

Looking at how many people have been scammed, the pair wanted to take it upon themselves to inform their fans and others about the scam. "We’ve been made aware of an ongoing “Fixer Upper” internet scam involving a design and construction company claiming to be affiliated with Chip and Joanna,” read a post that was shared on Magnolia Market Facebook page. “If you receive a message on Facebook or via email from someone either claiming to be or claiming to work for Chip and Joanna, we encourage you to simply not engage.”

The statement further read, "As always, any information about new partnerships, projects, and even personal news will be announced and confirmed on our official channels, so be sure to follow our social media accounts, sign up for our newsletter (https://magno.li/5-), and keep up with our blog (magnolia.com/blog)—these are the places where we will share any of those announcements." 

As of now, the couple is focusing on welcoming their fifth child. The couple announced that they are going to welcome a baby boy in the most creative way one could think of. Chip took to Twitter and posted a video in which he met a little boy named Gage at a Tim Tebow Foundation event. Upon meeting, Chip is seen asking Gage to pick a name for their new family member. 

"It's a little boy, and I need a 'D' name," Chip told Gage, "and so far, all I can come up with is Dragon." Chip and Joanna are already parents to daughters Ella, 9 and Emme,6, and their two boys are Duke, 8 and Drake, 11. While the girls get a name from "E", the boys of the family get a name from "D". Seeing Chip looking for names which start with "D", it was the announcement that we all had been waiting for about the couple revealing the gender of their baby. As soon as Chip suggests the name Dragon, he realizes that Joanna might not really be a big fan of it. 

Later, in an accompanying tweet Chip wrote, "If we're going to announce the gender of our 5th child. It might as well come from my new friend #Gage. Take it away from my man. @tebowfoundation." Joanna even confessed about her pregnancy is a lot more different this time and added that she could not wait to give birth to her baby.
