Chip and Joanna Gaines: We’re Returning to Television!

Chip and Joanna Gaines are about to take a new step in their professional lives.

And it’s a significant one.

The former HGTV stars announced on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Friday that they will soon make their long-awaited return to television.

In what context? In what way?

The beloved couple remained mostly mum on the subject while chatting with the comedian last night.

“We signed a non-disclosure and it said quote unquote you can tell your mother but that’s it,” Chip joked on air, adding:

“So mom, I just wanted to make a quick announcement, we are coming back to television.

“You are going to get to see the kids grow up, you are going to see us, well maybe a six-month delay like the rest of the world, but we are excited to be back.”

Just over a year ago, Chip and Joanna announced that would be leaving Fixer Upper after five seasons.

Since then, the home renovation experts have been rather busy in their own home, having welcomed their fifth child in late June.

However, Magnolia spokesman John Marsicano talked to People Magazine and offered a lot more detail on what the future holds for his co-workers:

“We’re excited to share that we are currently in the early stages of talking with Discovery about a lifestyle-focused media network for Magnolia.

“The details surrounding this opportunity remain a work in progress, but together, our hope is to build a different kind of platform for unique, inspiring and family-friendly content.”

Speaking to Fallon, Chip did add the following:

“I think we’re really going to carve it out in a way that really makes sense to us and our families.

“It’ll be filmed a lot in Waco, Texas, so we don’t have to travel a whole lot. All things being equal, we could not be more excited.”

Chip and Joanna hosted the top-rated show on HGTV prior to leaving the small screen.

Fans fell in love with how they remade various homes, but also with how they joked around and interacted with each other.

The upcoming new network will be the latest addition to Chip and Joanna’s gigantic list of successful businesses.

This includes their lifestyle magazine The Magnolia Journal, the new Magnolia Table restaurant and the couple’s product line at Target.

Despite bidding farewell to Fixer Upper in April, Chip and Joanna have remained very active in the business world.

“The show was amazing and we are so thankful for it, but it’s also a whirlwind where, if you are not careful, it will flat run you over,” Chip told People in October.

Looking ahead, Discovery spokesperson David Leavy says the following:

“The Gaineses are exceptional people, true authentic storytellers and creative visionaries who will nourish millions of people with quality, family-friendly programming accessible on a 24/7 network and across all screens.

“Stay tuned…working out the final details…more to come soon!”

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!!!!!!

Chip & Joanna Gaines Accused of Child Neglect By Raving Psycho

Even if you’ve never seen an episode of HGTV’s Fixer Upper, you’re probably familiar with Chip and Joanna Gaines

The handy couple is so ubiquitous that even now that they’ve stepped away from the show that made them famous, it seems one can’t log on to social media or scan the magazines in the checkout lane without seeing their photogenic faces.

And for one purveyor of scorching hot takes, that’s exactly the problem.

Daryl Austin is a USA Today columnist who thinks Chip and Joanna are 100% full of it.

He’s not denying that they built a successful media empire, and not he’s not predicting that they’ll fail in their efforts to create a popular retail brand.

No, Austin simply believes that the Gainses accomplished all of this at the expense of family togetherness.

He doesn’t have any proof that Chip and Joanna are neglecting their kids, but anyone that successful must be, right?!

We wish we were joking, but that really is the thrust of Austin’s argument.

In a recent piece entitled “Sorry but someone has to say it: Chip and Joanna Gaines do NOT put family first,” Austin claims that Chip and Joanna must be crappy parents because of how much they work.

The whole piece is imminently quotable, but we’ll just hit you with some choice excerpts:

“[Chip and Joanna] don’t want to be seen simply as a couple that can do it all. They want to be seen as a couple that can do it all while at the same time making their family their top priority,” Austin writes.

“This is just not possible, and it does a disservice to the parents who really are putting their children first.”

As fans of the couple know, Chip and Joanna are expecting their fifth child, and in their early 40s, they don’t seem to have lost a step.

This is simply not okay with Daryl Austin.

“No matter how rich and famous, we are all limited by the same 24 hours in a day,” he argues.

“You cannot do all they’ve done (or even a fraction of it) and still have any real time left over for family.”

So if you have kids, you just go ahead and toss all your career goals in the trash, because there’s simply no way for you to accomplish even a fraction of what Chip and Joanna have achieved now that you’ve committed the fatal error of procreation.

Austin doesn’t say exactly what fraction will cause you to absent-mindedly wrap a diaper around a frozen turkey and put your infant in the oven, but you better believe it’s low! 

We’d shoot him an email and ask for more details, but we assume Daryl is busy explaining to his children that he would be a columnist for the New York Times right now if he’d only worn a condom.

Chip Gaines Receives Special Help to Confirm Baby Gender

Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines are having a baby.

This is not news.

Heck, Joanna recently showed off her growing belly in a tight black dress, making it clear she isn’t keeping this pregnancy a secret of any kind.

But what kind of baby are Chip and Joanna having?

A boy or a girl?

This is a question that has not been answered…until now!

The Fixer Upper co-host took to Twitter this morning and shared a video that confirmed the gender of his impending child.

It’s unclear if this was really how Chip planned on making the announcement to his many followers, but make it he and his new friend surely did.

cg tweet

“Alright, alright … if we’re going to announce the gender of our #5th child. It might as well come from my new friend #Gage! Take it away my man. @tebowfoundation,” Chip wrote.

He then shared a video of his interaction with a little boy who Gaines met at the Tim Tebow Foundation’s golf weekend.

Kneeling aside a young boy with special needs, Chip smiles throughout the footage and says to Gage:

“We’re just about to have another little baby, because Uncle Chip lost his mind…

“I can’t think of a ‘D’ name. Can you help me think of a ‘D’ name?”

Chip then reveals that the D name is for a boy.

“Is that a secret? I don’t know, that might not even be allowed on Twitter. It’s a little boy and I need a ‘D’ name and so far, all I could come up with was Dragon, and she’s like, ’You are not calling that baby Dragon!’

“Can you help me?”

It’s VERY cute.

Check out the footage below:

Joanna and Chip are best known for having co-hosted five seasons of Fixer Upper on HGTV.

But they have also penned books, released clothing lines and just recently opened a restaurant in Texas.

They are already parents to Drake, 12, Ella, 11, Duke, 9, and Emmie Kay, 7.

But what’s one more child, right?!?

In alerting the universe to Joanna’s expecting state, Chip shared a photo of her belly and his pretend baby bump and then explained how this pregnancy happened, LOL:

“You might recall a few months back.. the ever amazing, ever romantic @JOHNNYSWIM was in Waco. 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.”

As you can see below, fans of the reality stars are pretty excited over this development as well:

yay for chip

Fixer Upper’s final season is currently airing on HGTV Tuesdays at 9/8c.

We don’t know yet if Joanna gave Chip her blessing to reveal her baby’s gender in this manner…

… but who could be mad at the guy after a video such as this?

Chip and Joanna Gaines: Did They Quit Over a Bad Contract?

Fans were shocked to learn that Fixer Upper would be ending after only 5 seasons

Rumors flew — maybe it’s because their family is still growing. Maybe it’s because they wanted to work on their alleged marital troubles.

But now there’s a report that might finally make all of this make sense … despite the Gainses fervent denials.

There’s going out on a high note, and then there’s canceling your show at its height of popularity.

What gives?

Well, Joanna Gaines is pregnant with her fifth child. That’s a big deal for any couple on just about any show.

But if they were fine doing a show with four kids, then five wouldn’t hurt, right? That would just be more Gaines family for fans to love.

Then there’s the theory that they’re having marital problems. Even Chip Gaines admits that their relationship has imperfections.

But they say that they aren’t splitting. So why are they saying “no” to success?

They say that every safety rule, every regulation, every warning sign, and every contract is written based on history. On things that went wrong for one party or another.

It sounds like that extends to TV contracts, as well, because Page Six reports that Chip and Joanna are holding out for a better contract deal.

“Many years ago, when Scripps, which also owns Food Network, signed Rachael Ray, they didn’t think about Rachael starting a magazine, launching product lines, getting endorsement deals, and her books selling millions of copies.”

This comes from an HGTV Network insider, folks.

“And so while Food Network turned Rachael Ray into a star, she made tens of millions and Scripps got none of it.”

Some would argue that this is fair. That the network gets commercial revenue from the show itself, while Rachael Ray’s other projects are her own.

Others would say that, by giving her a platform, the network deserves a piece of the pie.

“After Rachael, they made sure no talent deal would ever put them in that situation again.”

“Since the Gaineses were relatively unknown when they started, they signed the general Scripps talent contract….”

Time and time again, we’ve heard of unknown people with star potential signing contracts that they would later come to regret.

“The talent can’t do anything without their approval — any appearance, any publicity, any endorsement, any product — you have to ask them for permission.”

That … sounds like hell.

“It is awful. And on top of that, Scripps takes a big percentage of everything you make — books, appearances, endorsements, products. If you make money, they take most of the money….”

They must feel like they’re trapped. Household names, but being paid a pittance of what many would consider them worth.

“So [Chip and Joanna] are using this end of their contract as a total renegotiation to get the deal they really want: more money, less work, more control.”

Apparently, the Gaineses believe that the odds are in their favor for one very good reason.

“The timing of Discovery buying Scripps worked well in their favor.”

Discovery knows the value of a reality series.

“With Discovery hopefully now about to own Scripps, they are rolling the dice thinking the new owners will come running after them and give them the deal they really want.”

It is a gamble, but perhaps it will pay off.

And if not, well, there are reports that the couple’s been meeting with other networks to pitch a new show.

Still (as you can see in the video above), the Gaineses have denied that this is about money.

They’re currently worth about $ 8 million each, but they suggested that they wouldn’t continue at this point, even if offered a ludicrous offer.

But … we have to consider that this could be their branding talking.

Some people find discussing money to be “vulgar,” and so if they were to admit: “Hey, we’re holding out for more money! Our millions aren’t enough!” it might hurt their brand.

For the sake of their fans, let’s hope that whatever it takes to get them back on TV happens.

Chip Gaines Admits Marriage’s Imperfections in Valentine’s Day Post

Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines are pretty much the definition of relationship goals, right? Which is why Chip’s Valentine’s Day message has left some fans scratching their heads.

Usually, Valentine’s Day is all about romanticizing love and relationships as much as possible.

Instead, Chip seems to be focusing on the imperfections. Is he on to something here?

Considering the way that Chip and Joanna Gaines have shot down marital trouble rumors in the past, you’d think that they either have a picture-perfect marriage …

… Or that they, at least, want everyone to believe that everything is all smiles and rainbows or whatever.

A lot of fans grew suspicious when they heard that Fixer Upper was ending after 5 seasons. It’s a hugely popular series, and most networks and stars keep a show going until it stops being profitable.

To borrow the words of Bo Burnham, most television shows don’t stop beating the proverbial dead horse until it stops spitting out money.

But you know what? A couple of married stars quitting a show doesn’t have to be a marital spat. Maybe they made “enough” money — if there is such a thing. (To be clear, they are each worth like $ 8 million)

Their actual stated reason was just that they wanted to spend more time with each other and their family. That sounds healthy enough to us.

Chip tweeted out his unorthodox Valentine’s Day message, early Wednesday morning.

“No such thing as a ‘perfect marriage.'”

But Chip reveals what he believes to be the secret of making a marriage work.

“For me, its always been simple: commitment.”

Well that makes a lot of sense. That doesn’t just mean not cheating, but being committed to their emotional and romantic bond and their relationship and family and life together.

“Every morning I wake up committed, and pray that she chooses the same. And so today, again, I choose my beautiful bride.”

He clearly takes his marriage voews seriously.

“To have and to hold.. till death do us part. #HappyValentinesDay sweet girl!”

Of course, Chip and Joanna are expecting their fifth child.

The Gaineses are already parents to Drake, age 12, Ella, age 11, Duke, age 9, and Emmie Kay, age 7.

Preparing for a fifth child is a lot, but the couple can certainly balance that while continuing to grow their home improvement empire.

They’ve even made time for adorable little gags, like the way that they showed off their baby bump.

It’s always a sign of a healthy couple when they can joke and have fun while celebrating good news.

Cute!

So, in light of their relationship, we think that Chip and Joanna are being realistic about the struggles of being a couple who’s been married for a long time.

You’re going to disagree. You’re going to get on each other’s nerves. You’re going to catch yourself imagining a different life.

All of that will happen whether or not you argue. It’s part of being a person.

What matters, and this is really what Chip’s tweet is getting at, is how committed you are to your bond with your partner. Or partners, for that matter.

What’s more, the fact that Chip is openly discussing the imperfections in his and all marriages is a healthy sign.

That means that he feels so secure in his relationship that he doesn’t hesitate to mention that not everything’s picture perfect.

In a Valentine’s Day message, no less.

These two seem to have things all figured out.
