'Fixer Upper' star Joanna Gaines reveals what went through her mind when she found out she was pregnant AGAIN!
Joanna Gaines talks about expecting a baby boy and how the pregnancy came as a total surprise to her husband and her. They found they made the right decision to leave when they did
Joanna and Chip Gaines, most popular for starring in the reality home improvement TV series 'Fixer Upper,' had recently announced that they were expecting their fifth child, and the couple revealed that they're still just as excited as they were for their first.
Joanna spoke to People about how she and her husband were surprised by her latest pregnancy, a baby boy, and that her 'jaw dropped' when she found out. She said: "I had been feeling a little emotional and crazy and thought 'Wow, this isn't me.'"
She continued: "Then all of a sudden I realized, 'Hey, I remember this.' When I saw the results of the test, my jaw dropped. Chip was in the driveway about to leave when I called him back and said, 'We're pregnant!'", adding: "When we were done, we had no plan like, 'Let’s have baby no. 5.' It was a total surprise. But when we found out, it solidified that it was the right decision to leave when we did."
She did not strike down the possibility of expanding their growing family further either, jokingly proclaiming that she was going to be 'that 45-year-old who's pregnant.' She said: "Chip is such a kid at heart and we both love a big family. I’m open to whatever. I’m just having fun with it."
Joanna and Chip already have their hands full with their four children - 8-year-old Emmie Kay, 9-year-old Duke, 11-year-old Ella Rose, and 13-year-old Drake but Joanna says that she feels that the fifth is going to be different, mostly cause the others are much older now.
The 40-year-old also said that her other kids want to be a part of welcoming the newest member of their family: "Every single time they see my belly they have to rub it,' she says. 'I think it's sweet because they're older now, and I can see them wanting to be a part of this. We're all rallying around this baby, which I feel is a sweet gift to our family."
