Stars of “Fixer-Upper” Announce Baby #5 on Instagram

Chip and Joanna Gaines spend lots of time making dreams come true for other people on their hit HGTV show “Fixer Upper.” But, a series of Instagram posts shared in the days following the New Year showed they’re fulfilling their own dreams, too. A new baby, the 5th for the couple, is on the way!

The posts began with a tweeted video from Chip prior to the beginning of their new season that referenced “Hint #1.”

Soon after came what might have been easily taken for a typical “New Year, New Start” image shared by Joanna.

“New year, new hope… Be expectant. There is just something about fresh faith and unwavering trust that brings life to our souls. May this be your best year yet. #2018”

Instagram followers and fans soon grew suspicious and @beck2013 quickly pointed out the “Live expectantly!” portion of Joanna’s post.

Another follower caught on and replied:

@alwayshavepeace Cheers to you and Chip Congratulations on the Wonderful baby news.❤️ I love the way you let people know. You have such a beautiful family. God Bless you all, May this year bring many blessings for you all.

But, for those that may not have figured it out from Joanna, here was Hint #3 from Chip. (More than a “hint,” we’d say!)

Although the news was now officially out, both Chip and Joanna shared two more fun pregnancy posts for their fans to enjoy.
