Is there another baby in the future for the Chip and Joanna Gaines brood? If it’s up to Chip he would love to have a sixth child.
Chip, 43, spoke to People explaining that he’s concerned about the big age gap between his eldest children 13-year-old Drake, 11-year-old Ella, 9-year-old Duke, and 8-year-old Emmie. Chip is worried that his youngest child Crew won’t have a partner in crime growing up like his other children.
“I think we have to have another one because I’m particular about the only child thing. Crew needs a sister to manage this whole thing out,” Chip told People. “Don’t be surprised if No. 6 is in the cards!”
Joanna Gaines, 40, isn’t as sure as Chip is about adding another member to their family. Joanna admits that her most recent pregnancy wasn’t so easy now that she’s in her forties. In a recent issue of their magazine, Magnolia Journal she revealed. “I have always really enjoyed being pregnant—I tend to feel my best during those nine months. This time I felt a little more worn out than usual.”
But that doesn’t mean the Fixer Upper alum isn’t ruling out another baby. In a previous interview with People, she said, “I joke with my friends that I’m going to be that 45-year-old who’s pregnant.”
Joanna has also said that she and Chip have always taken life day by day and their not big planners. Crew was a surprise and they believe that life brings you surprises and blessings when you least expect it. They are going to continue with the same attitude when it comes to adding another child. If it’s meant to be it will happen when it’s supposed to.
“That’s what I love about life,” Joanna tells People. “It’s these surprises, and at first you sit there and go, ‘How does that fit?’ And now that it’s all happened I can’t imagine life any other way. I’ve never been so happy.”
