In an April blog post, Joanna shared that her fifth pregnancy “has been so fun” because her kids are excited to welcome a new sibling. “Since I had our first four babies so close to one another, none of them actually remember me being pregnant,” the Magnolia Table author revealed. “They love my growing belly (and boys is it growing) and they can’t wait to meet him.”

The Waco, Texas-based couple, who have been married 15 years, costarred on HGTV’s Fixer Upper from May 2013 to April 2018. Joanna and Chip announced in September 2017 that season would be be their last. A source told Us Weekly at the time, “They want to focus on raising their kids and being a family since their kids are getting older.”

Like the entire Fixer Upper opportunity as a whole, life has a way of surprising us.
