Joanna Gaines Attempts to Do Gymnastics With Her 9-Year-Old Daughter Emmie — And Fails

Like mother, like daughter! Joanna Gaines proved that her 9-year-old daughter, Emmie, didn’t get her gymnastics skills from her mom.

The Fixer Upper star, 40, posted a video of the little one at practice on Wednesday, March 6. After Emmie completed a couple of impressive flips with the help of a coach, Gaines ran in front of the camera for a backbend of her own — and dropped down right onto her head. The We Are the Gardeners author cracked up at her gymnastics fail.

“When you think you still got it… but you don’t,” the reality star captioned the hilarious footage.

She and her husband, Chip Gaines, who tied the knot in 2003, also share Drake, 14, Ella, 13, Duke, 10, and Crew, 9 months.

When the couple’s youngest outgrew his bassinet last month, Joanna posted a pic of him on Instagram captioned, “Uh oh.. what happens when they out grow the #snoo??”

“Sell it to me!!” a fan named Kelly Claggett commented. “After 12 years my husband and I are finally expecting.”

In a sweet show of support, Chip, 44, tagged his assistant, asking to get the mom-to-be “set up.”

Sure enough, Claggett wrote on Facebook in early March: “Something absolutely BANANAS happened a few weeks ago. I made an offhand comment to Chip Gains (sic) and then the rest was nothing that I ever would have expected. I do not feel worthy of any of it but like I have told the ones of you who already know.. God gets every ounce of glory in this. This is just his way of saying I SEE YOU AND I LOVE YOU! Our baby and family is blessed by this random act of kindness and I’ll never stop trying to pay it forward.”
