Chip and Joanna Gaines Announce the Birth of Their New Baby Boy
The littlest Fixer Upper has arrived! Former HGTV stars Chip and Joanna Gaines have officially welcomed a fifth child to their growing brood, with Chip confirming the news to fans via Twitter early this morning. “And then there were five,” he wrote. “The Gaines crew is now one stronger!”
He also let fans know both mom and son were plenty healthy, saying, “10 beautiful toes and 10 beautiful fingers all accounted for and big mama is doing great!”

Breaking from their pattern of having “D” names for their boys, Drake, 13, and Duke, 9 and “E” names for their girls with Ella, 11, and Emmie Kay, 8, Joanna revealed she had a new letter picked out for their newest addition with a recent appearance on the TODAY show. “I want a ‘C’ name and [Chip] wants a ‘D’ name,” she said, with Chip adding, “She wants to change the pace.”
The couple announced they were expecting back in January after “a little too romantic of a concert” with an adorable pic of Chip showing off his “baby bump” alongside Joanna, saying, “Gaines, party of seven… If you’re still confused, WE ARE PREGNANT.”
Chip later revealed the sex of their little one while interviewing a young man at a Tim Tebow Foundation gold event.
Congratulations to the happy family!
