HGTV star Chip Gaines isn’t just the husband to his Fixer Upper co-star Joanna Gaines, he’s also her biggest fan! When the couple stopped by Today on Tuesday, April 24 — to promote Joanna’s new cookbook, Magnolia Table: A Collection of Recipes for Gathering — Chip joined the Rockefeller Center crowd outside the studio to cheer on his leading lady.
In an Instagram video Chip later posted, you can see him holding an “I Heart Joanna Gaines” sign while jumping up and down, screaming, giggling, and shrieking “OMG!” in a high-pitched voice.
“Jo’s cookbook is officially out!” Chip wrote in the Instagram post’s caption. “Let me tell you, she’s poured her heart into this book, and I couldn’t be more proud. I think your belly is gonna love it as much as mine does.” Meanwhile, Joanna posted an Instagram photo of Chip’s goofy moment, writing, “Thanks for the support, @ChipGaines. #Groupie.”
Inside the studio, Joanna told the Today hosts that it’s been nice to perfect her biscuit recipe (which Chip calls “simply amazing”) while she has a bun in her oven. In case you missed the news, she and Chip are expecting their fifth child! “I feel good,” the pregnant reality star said on the show. “This was a good time to do a cookbook because I just love the idea of eating, cooking… getting to create these beautiful moments in your home.”
In addition to the aforementioned biscuits, Joanna also brought along her chicken pot pie (their kids’ favorite recipe), her scalloped potatoes (Chip’s favorite side dish), and her strawberry shortcake. As the Today hosts noshed on the food, their guests from Waco, TX, regaled them with stories about their latest pregnancy experience, talked about the eight-year age gap between their fourth child and this new bundle of joy, their indecision over a “C” name or a “D” name for the baby, and Chip’s appreciation for Jo’s pregnancy curves.
“Prior to my relationship with Joanna, I always dated slightly bigger-boned girls… so whenever Jo’s pregnant, it’s kind of my thing!” Chip revealed. Whether he’s acting like a trembling fan or veering into TMI territory, this dude always keeps us laughing!
