    Joanna Gaines and Chip Gaines Welcome Fifth Child!


    It's officially time for Joanna Gaines and Chip Gaines to go from fixing up houses to changing dirty diapers.

    That's right, readers:

    The beloved couple has welcomed its fifth child into its precious fold!

    Without revealing the newborn's measuremeants, gender or name, Chip broke this very exciting piece of news via a Tweet early Saturday morning that reads as follows:

    And then there were 5.. The Gaines crew is now 1 stronger! 10 beautiful toes and 10 beautiful fingers all accounted for, and big momma is doing great!

    The faithful reality star added the hashtah "#blessedBeyondBelief."

    The new addition joins siblings Emmie Kay, 8, Duke, 9, Ella, 11, and Drake, 13 in this large and close-knit family.

    chip announcement

    Chip and Joanna recently finished filming their final season of Fixer Upper, which has ranked as HGTV's top-rated program for years.

    They announced that Season 5 would be the series' swan song prior to confirming Joanna's pregnancy, telling fans at the time that they simply needed a break.

    And now we know why!

    In early January, the twosome revealed that a fifth son or daughter was on the way, doing so in the sort of adorable manner that made them such a popular couple in the first place.

    “Gaines party of 7.. (If you’re still confused.. WE ARE PREGNANT) @joannagaines,” Chip wrote as a caption to the following image, which features his wife cradling his pretend baby bump while she shows her actual baby bump under a grey sweater.

    Classic Chip, right?!?

    There were actually some online concerns a few days later after Joanna's ultrasound appeared to feature a complication for the fetus.

    But it thankfully sounds now as if those worries were for naught and the baby is happy, healthy and... here!

    At one point, Chip even joked about how his fifth kid came to be, sharing a hilarious tweet that spelled out exactly when he and Joanna had the sex that led to her expecting state.

    “You might recall a few months back.. the ever amazing, ever romantic @JOHNNYSWIM was in Waco," he wrote awhile back, adding:

    "And they put on a little too romantic of a concert.. anyways, one thing led to another, & we are officially pregnant. And I could not be more EXCITED! #5 #7ThePerfectNumber."

    Once again: Classic Chip.

    With no new season of Fixer Upper to film and with a baby at home, you probably won't hear from Chip and Joanna for a little bit.

    But they're always sort of around and will likely be right back in the spotlight shortly.

    Joanna has a new book out, after all, and the couple owns a restaurant and has its own Target line and pretty much has its foot in every conceivable aspect of the home design and renovation business.

    We bet they end up starring in a new show at some point as well.

    For now, though, it's all about that new mouth to feed.

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!
