Throughout their nearly five-year run on HGTV, fans all around the world fell in love with Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines. As viewers got a glimpse into the lives of the Fixer Upper stars, they also became familiar with the couple’s five children — Drake, 14, Ella, 12, Duke, 10, Emmie, 8, and Crew, 8 months.
Since saying goodbye to their beloved TV show in 2017, the lives of Chip, 44, and Jo, 40, have changed tremendously. Not only have they expanded their brood by one after welcoming baby Crew last June, but the brunette beauty and her hysterical hubby have also been growing their empire. Chip and Jo are currently working on launching a TV network, opening a coffee shop and working on a children’s book — just to name a few projects they’ve got in the works.

That’s what wakes me up. It’s my heart — these kids.”
