Joanna Gaines is the star from HGTV’s Fixer Upper, and she is now a new mother for the fifth time! She and husband Chip Gaines have been together for 15 years now, and it looks like this is a “’til death do us part” kind of marriage! Joanna owns and runs a home store called Magnolia, and has also penned down a few books, cookbooks, and journals, paying homage to her splendid journey. Here are some details from Joanna Gaines’ wiki.
Joanna Gaines Bio
Born on April 19, 1978, Joanna Stevens Gaines’ age is 40. She is a true-blue Texan but was born in Kansas.
Joanna comes from Korean and German-Lebanese backgrounds from her mother and father’s sides, respectively. She has two sisters, one younger and one older to her.
The 40-year-old shares five kids with her husband, Chip. The couple recently celebrated the birth of their fifth child.
On June 24, 2018, Chip and Joanna Gaines’ baby, Crew, was born.
Joanna Gaines Loves Big Families
She comes from a somewhat big family as compared to the nuclear families that exist today. Her mother Nan, who is Korean, shares three daughters with Joanna’s father—Mary Kay, Teresa Ann, and Joanna.
Joanna Gaines and her sisters are as close today as they have been all their lives, and they love their families a lot.
Mary Kay is a mom to six children, and now Joanna herself is a mother to five.
Joanna Gaines’ kids are Drake, 13, Ella, 12, Duke, 10, Emmie, 8, and baby Crew. Some of the kids make cameo appearances on her Instagram account!
Chip and Joanna married on May 31, 2003. They met each other after their graduations from Baylor University in Waco, Texas.
The couple’s first project after their marriage was a home they bought and renovated. They had a knack for renovations, construction, design, and flipping from the beginning. And their skills only increase when they come together for projects.
Chip, 43, and Joanna have worked on more than 100 homes in their careers so far. But the best thing that could happen to them was the TV show, Fixer Upper.
Joanna Gaines Started Her Company in 2003
Chip has always been a supportive husband, and he has helped Magnolia become what it is today. Joanna started a small home accessories store, which was the foundation of a real estate and home empire today.
She learned whatever she knows on the job and has been sharpening her skills ever since she started her company.
The couple then expanded their family, which is when the store took a back seat. But it gave way to a construction business called Magnolia Homes.
The Waco, Texas-located company is the place you want to go for all your home needs.
Chip then founded Magnolia Realty, which helps people find their dream homes in many cities including Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio.
The Magnolia brand has become a huge entity today, with Joanna’s Magnolia Seed & Supply store, the Silos Baking Co., and the Magnolia Market, all doing great!
They also have Magnolia House, where one can stay and enjoy their facilities at the Hillcrest Estate.
The couple has certainly turned things around for themselves since the start of their dream to one day become successful U.S. realtors—and home reno masters!
Joanna and Chip Gaines Were on HGTV for 5 Years
In 2012, Chip and Joanna Gaines began their journey on TV with the show, Fixer Upper. The reality show was all about renovations and home design, and how the couple helped people find homes. They then renovated the homes to make it closer to their clients’ desires of what they envisioned.
Fixer Upper was a hit show, and Joanna has also helped with her sister’s home renovation on TV.
The show began airing in 2013, and the last episode was wrapped up in April 2018. Joanna took to Instagram to share her thoughts of the journey they have had on TV, by posting a comparison photo of the day they started shooting and the day of their last shoot.
A part of the caption for the photo read, “What a journey this has been! Check out my blog to read an update from us and to see what’s on the horizon for our family and Magnolia as we move forward.”
The beautiful family of seven has now moved on from the show and are back to focusing on their growing family.
Chip and Joanna Gaines’ House
For the people who make dream homes come true for others, their own has to be a magnificent one! And it is.
The Victorian-style 1,700-square-foot home in Crawford, Texas has got to be one of the most beautiful homes in the area.
The property is a rustic 1895 farmhouse, which was given a Cinderella makeover that took over a year’s worth of planning and execution!
The couple made sure they kept the country vibe of the place but expanded it to suit the more modern times. What was a two-bedroom home is now a space that can house seven people!
The Gaineses went with an open floor plan with large living spaces and lots of ventilation. Reclaimed wood and upcycled materials were used to make the home look more rustic and true to its roots, all the while keeping in mind that it was going to be a home for people from the 21st century.
A lot of greenery can be seen outside and inside the home, and the farm consists of many animals, too.
The Gaineses children learned to pick eggs and tend to the horses, cows, and several such farm animals, giving them an opportunity to stay rooted.
With Chip’s eye for detail and Joanna’s style sense, the Gaineses home is a good inspiration to many who start a project of their own!
She Has Authored Several Books
With experience comes the urge to share! And the entrepreneurial woman has not shied away.
Joanna Gaines is the author of Magnolia Table, The Magnolia Story, and Home Body. The books are all parts of Joanna herself, as she has expressed everything about the exciting journey she has had so far.
To add to the brand name, she launched a quarterly magazine called The Magnolia Journal.
Magnolia Table, however, is a cookbook full of recipes that are waiting to be tried! Did you know that Joanna Gaines is also a baker?
She makes donuts and cakes for the family-run bakery named Silos Baking Co., too!
Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Net Worth
Joanna and Chip Gaines are both worth an estimated $9.0 million each. She has reportedly been receiving $30,000 per episode while on HGTV.
Her books have also done well, with Time.com reporting that she has sold 121,000 copies of her book, The Magnolia Story.
By renting out their luxurious Hillcrest Estate for a minimum of two nights (at $600.00 per night), we’re sure the Gaines family has nothing to worry about when it comes to the greens!
She Believes in Giving Back
The family started the Magnolia Foundation because Joanna fully believes in giving back to the community. It works towards uplifting orphans by collaborating with local charitable organizations. They also help in orphan care and youth development.
The foundation also believes that everybody is entitled to good living spaces and homes. So, it often helps with community restorations and family housing.
Chip and Joanna work with local children’s hospitals and volunteers who can help make the community a better place to live in.
The foundation is open to donations and promises to help all in need. It has reached in Uganda, too, where the Magnolia Foundation and Restoration Gateway come together to uplift the orphans and give them a better life.
