Joanna Gaines Ultrasound Raises Serious Concerns; Is Her Baby in Trouble?

Just a few days after Chip and Joanna Gaines announced to the world that they’re expecting their fifth child, medical experts say the couple may have cause for serious concern when it comes to the baby.

This concern centers around an ultrasound photo Joanna shared on Tuesday of her unborn baby.

On January 2, Chip confirmed the exciting news of a fifth bundle of joy on the way for him and his wife, as the Fixer Upper star shared an adorable picture (below) and wrote as a caption:

“Gaines party of 7.. (If you’re still confused.. WE ARE PREGNANT) @joannagaines.”

The HGTV stars are parents to four children: Drake, 12, Ella, 11, Duke, 9, and Emmie Kay, 7.

They’ll feature the kids occasionally on their wildly popular home renovation show, but only in snippets; only to show everyone gathered at home for some ice cream or something.

At various times last year, Chip made comments that hinted he and Joanna were trying (or thinking about trying) for another boy or girl.

As a follow-up to her husband’s cute news-breaking photo and message, Joanna posted a picture of her ultrasound, writing along with it:

“Chip swears he can already tell it’s a boy. Look at the little heartbeat!!”

Sadly, however, many Internet users are focused on something else.

According to TMZ sources and others in the medical community, it looks very much as if there’s excess fluid around the fetus.

This has many wondering if the baby has a condition known as hydrops fetalis, which can be fatal.

You can take a close look at the ultrasound below:

It’s important to note here that this one ultrasound image is not conclusive.

There are other angles and other photos an expert would need to study in order to determine whether extra fluid is in additional cavities such as the heart, lungs or abdomen.

So states a radiologist from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to TMZ.

Chip and Joanna announced in October that they were ending Fixer Upper after five seasons.

“While we are confident that this is the right choice for us, it has for sure not been an easy one to come to terms with,” they said at the time, adding:

“Our family has grown up alongside yours, and we have felt you rooting us on from the other side of the screen.”

Cynics questioned whether this decision was simply a contract negotiating ploy, but Chip and Joanna remained adamant that they simply needed a break.

And they cited their family as the main reason why.

“This has nothing to do with a fraudulent skincare line or anything else you’ll inevitably read,” they continued.

“This is just us recognizing that we need to catch our breath for a moment.

“Our plan is to take this time to shore up and strengthen the spots that are weak, rest the places that are tired and give lots of love and attention to both our family and our businesses.”

We don’t know how far along Joanna is, so it’s possible she was already pregnant at the time of this announcement.

All we can say now, meanwhile, is that we’ll keep the couple in our thoughts and we will wish them all the best.

Joanna Gaines: Pregnant with FIFTH Child!

Fixer Upper?

More like Fixer Up…Her? Or Him?

In other, far less confusing words: Chip and Joanna Gaines are expecting their fifth child!!!!!!

The beloved HGTV personalities announced this major news via Instagram on Tuesday night, taking followers by surprise via a cute picture and unexpected announcement.

“Gaines party of 7.. (If you’re still confused.. WE ARE PREGNANT) @joannagaines,” Chip wrote as a caption to the following snapshot, which features Joanna cradling his fake baby bump while she shows her actual baby bump under a grey sweater.

Check out the cute image here:

The couple is already parents to kids, Drake, 12, Ella, 11, Duke, 9, and Emmie Kay, 7.

They are sometimes featured on Fixer Upper, which continues to rate as HGTV’s most-watched program, but never overtly so.

Chip and Joanna have always done a solid job of giving viewers a glimpse at their family life, but never really exposing their children to the spotlight in any real manner.

“Congrats @joannagaines & @chipgaines! We can’t wait to meet #BabyGaines. #FixerUpper #GrowingUpGaines,” TLC Tweeted in response to the news, which the stars teased the day before.

Along with a gorgeous photo of the sky and the water, Joanna penned the followong on Instagram:

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.

We’re so very happy for these two.

New episodes of Fixer Upper kicked off in November, but this excitement has been tempered by the fact that this will be the show’s final season.

There was talk that Chip and Joanna were pulling the plug on their popular show as some kind of contract negotiation ploy… but now we know better.

Now those cynics ought to be ashamed.

The couple was simply planning to expand their family and knew Joanna, at least, would need some time off in the new year.

“We had four babies right before the show started, and then we’ve had zero babies since the show started,” Chip told Houston ABC affiliate KTRK late last year, adding at the time:

“For me, I’m really excited to go back and try to maybe . . . try to make some more babies.”

He’s talking about sex, people.

Shortly before making this statement, Chip and Joanna filmed their final Fixer Upper episode.

In a sentimental Instagram post, Joanna wrote: “Today was the final reveal… We definitely felt the emotion behind each of those steps leading up to the big canvas. We love you Fixer Upper.”

This statement followed a joint statement released by the stars in light of their decision to end the show.

“We would be foolish to think we can go and go and fire on all cylinders and never stop to pause,” the Gaines said in early November, concluding:

“Our family is healthy and our marriage has honestly never been stronger…

“This is just us recognizing that we need to catch our breath for a moment.

“Our plan is to take this time to shore up and strengthen the spots that are weak, rest the places that are tired and give lots of love and attention to both our family and our businesses.”

We wish them the best.

‘Fixer Upper’ Stars Chip and Joanna Gaines Host Last Season Premiere Party

Joanna Gaines Bids Sad Farewell to Fixer Upper

The final season of Fixer Upper is yet to begin.

And yet the final season of Fixer Upper is also over for Chip and Joanna Gaines.

The beloved HGTV stars have completed filming new episodes of their network’s highest-rated series, wrapping up the finale this past weekend.

In response to her last time showing a couple just what she and her husband did to improve their home, Joanna shared the following image and caption.

“Today was the final reveal… We definitely felt the emotion behind each of those steps leading up to the big canvas. We love you Fixer Upper. Season premiers on November 21.”

Gaines added the hashtag #savedthebestseasonforlast.

In late September, Chip and Joanna surprised fans when they announced Fixer Upper was coming to an end.

Ratings remain very strong and we’re sure HGTV executives wanted the couple to continue on as hosts… but they just needed a break.

“We would be foolish to think we can go and go and fire on all cylinders and never stop to pause,” said the parents of four at the time, adding by way of explanation:

“Our family is healthy and our marriage has honestly never been stronger…

“This is just us recognizing that we need to catch our breath for a moment.

“Our plan is to take this time to shore up and strengthen the spots that are weak, rest the places that are tired and give lots of love and attention to both our family and our businesses.”

It’s not as though Chip and Joanna will be receding much from the spotlight, even after Fixer Upper is no longer on the air.

They just signed a clothing line deal with Target and Chip just came out with a memoir.

Yes, removing shooting obligations enables the stars to spend more time at home with their children (Drake, 12; Ella, 11; Duke, 9; and Emmie Kay, 7) – but these are two very busy and successful people.

They will remain busy and successful for many years to come.

“We really don’t know [if this is the end of us on TV]. I feel hopeful for whatever it is,” Joanna told People Magazine a few weeks ago.

She continued:

“We have a real-life business on the ground in Waco, Texas, and we are opening a restaurant in January and February.

“There are lot of things, we just got to get on the ground and be a really big part of that as these things are kind of still going.”

We can confirm that the final season of Fixer Upper – the best one EVER, apparently – will be comprised of 19 episodes.

And we can also confirm that we’ll be watching each and every one of them.

We love you, Chip and Joanna!

Chip and Joanna Gaines FINALLY Address Rumors of Marital Troubles!

Fixer Upper is extremely popular, and so are its stars — Chip and Joanna Gaines. Which is why it's so surprising that Fixer Upper is ending while it's still going so strong.

Are we, as a society, so accustomed to shows jumping the shark that we can't conceive of a show deliberately ending on a high note? Or is there something going on behind the scenes? Like, say, relationship trouble between Chip and Joanna?

Well, in the video below, the Fixer Upper couple is finally giving in to demands for answers.

As you'll see in the video, Joanna and Chip Gaines finally cave and spoke to E! about the questions and rumors about their relationship and how it may have influenced their decision to end their show while it's going strong.

And they're denying everything, basically.

Chip expressed surprise, as he'd imagined that the news that the two of them were done with Fixer Upper would inspire fans to wonder what they were doing next.

That is … adorably naive.

Humans like puzzles and we like believable narratives and reasons that we can understand. "We quit our successful show because it was time" doesn't strike most people as plausible.

Chip continues:

"It's just the rumor mill — I think — surprised us a little bit."

You know … he might be telling the truth. Maybe they never expected the public to, right or wrong, guess that they were having issues.

But he says that he understands that they're famous and that all of this goes with the territory.

"When you put yourself out in the public light like this, people are going to speculate like this and we have had our fair share of that, but Jo and I are just as happy as we have ever been."

There has to be something going on, right?

Joanna speaks up and acknowledges that fans have good reason to ask the questions that they've been asking, however:

"I think it seems weird to kind of leave on a high note. I think for people, there has got to be a negative reason to that. I think that is not always how life has to be."

Maybe, but that's how life usually is.

Shows either stay good over long stretches, get better over time, get worse over time, or were terrible to start with. Otherwise, there's something else going on.

"I think for us we felt that season five was just the perfect end to this beautiful chapter, but really the why is time, you know?"

So, basically, they just felt like not doing it anymore. That's what she's claiming.

"Unfortunately, I don't think if they came back and offered a billion dollars that we would step back at this point."

Obviously, she's relying upon the absurdity of that hypothetical scenario. Plenty of people would commit murder for a billion dollars.

"We are pretty headstrong and when we feel like it is the right decision for our relationship, for our family, for our business, it would take an act of congress to knock us off that position."

That's a weird way of phrasing that, but whatever.

You know, depending upon rights ownership issues to which we aren't privy, the network could always try to make it work under the same name.

A show called Fixer Uppers could be about, we dunno, interventions for people who take a lot of stimulants.

Or, with a tweak, Fixer Puppers could be about a veterinarian. 

But it's clear that the Gaines-es want us to be focusing on what they're going to do next, professionally speaking.

That's what we gather from Chip's words, anyway. So … what exactly will they do next? We have no idea.

Joanna and Chip Gaines: It’s Over!*

* Professionally, that is.

With Chip Gaines having just released a new book, the HGTV star and his beloved wife have been sitting for a number of promotional interviews this week.

Plenty has been revealed in these segments, but perhaps the most intriguing tidbit of all is Chip’s admission that he’d be open to a return to television.

Under one condition, that is: Joanna isn’t invited!

Asked by Daily Pop host Justin Sylvester whether he could envision himself starring on another series down the line, Chip said the following:

“It would have to be a show where it would be me, just all by myself – that could be a thing that I would be interested in.”

He may have been joking, but he may also just be interested in branching out a bit.

Chip and Joanna shocked and saddened fans this month when they announced Fixer Upper was coming to an end after Season 5.

Asked about that decision in this interview, Joanna referenced her four children and stated:

“Our kids are getting older for us and time seems to be slipping away faster, so I think we wanted to take a step back and get refreshed and focus on what’s next for us.”

The stars are parents to Drake, 12; Ella, 11; Duke, 9 and Emmie Kay, 7.

In addition to Fixer Upper, which is HGTV’s top-rated program, the twosome have quite an empire.

There’s the home improvement business… their Magnolia Market store… their magazine, The Magnolia Journal … and retail collaborations, including a partnership with Target.

There have also been rumors of relationship tension between Chip and Joanna because the Internet can’t help but speculate on the status of famous couples.

And while Chip has shot down such chatter in the past, he actually gave it a “little credence” in speaking with The Today Show on Tuesday.

“For us, the most important thing in the world is Jo and I’s relationship, followed very quickly by these four beautiful kids [of ours],” he said, adding:

“We didn’t want to push it, to redline it for so long that we woke up and realized we are at a point of no return.

“We wanted to take a step back and focus on what is absolutely the most important thing to us.”

The Capital Gaines author continued:

“People in our inner circle, I tell them we’re as healthy as we’ve ever been. I just didn’t want to keep pushing this envelope to the fullest extent.

“We’re really thankful that we had the opportunity to step back and take a break.”

Things certainly do sound fine and dandy between the parents of four.

Consider Joanna’s caption to a new Instagram photo of herself, her husband and his book:

This guy right here… I get to live life with him. I get to hear his thoughts and benefit from his wisdom and encouragement on a daily basis.

The reason I am who I am today is because Chip pushed me to go for it. People think of him as a jokester, and he is. It’s a huge part of why I fell in love with him in the first place.

But he is so much more than that.

He is the ultimate cheerleader, coach and dream maker. I am so thrilled that his book releases today mostly because I believe it holds truth that the world is in desperate need of. I am always proud to be Chip’s wife but today more than ever. I know this book was a true labor of love.

Well done, Chip Carter Gaines!

Yeah. It’s safe to say these two are happy.
