The iconic couple first met back in 2001 and got married in 2013. Since then, the couple has welcomed their three sons and two daughters into the world. All the while, Chip and Joanna Gaines have created a massive business partnership.
Birthday Celebrations with Chip and Joanna Gaines
Joanna Gaines took to Instagram to wish a special birthday to her partner in life. She wrote simply, “You make life better for all of us. Happy Birthday to the very best.” Joanna Gaines also shared an absolutely stunning photo of them walking hand-in-hand at their large ranch on a rocky, paved road.
Joanna Gaines, on the other hand, celebrated her birthday back in April. The way in which the family celebrated is proof of just how laid-back the Gaines family happens to be.
She shared an Instagram post that day. She said she sleep until 11 a.m. and then her sister stopped by with a latte and a new pair of Birkenstocks. Joanna Gaines then proceeded to get a cheeseburger and some chocolate cake at Magnolia Table. She ended the day with time in the garden and then in an old car with her kids as she just enjoyed the day.
In addition to a hectic personal life full of kids and puppies and gardening duties, Chip and Joanna Gaines must balance a grueling working career.
Adjusting to the Fame of Magnolia Network
While the two seem to adore their fans and the work they do, fame hasn’t always been easy for the Waco, Texas couple. “I have discovered that fame is just, your life is the same, you’re the same, and everybody has an idea of what that is, it’s just more people know your name. And I think if you don’t know who you are when the fame thing hits then you lose yourself,” Chip Gaines said during an interview with Oprah Winfrey, according to People.
While Chip felt like he lost a part of himself, Joanna was there to help him all along. He called his wife “incredibly wise, so incredibly grounded.”
This is part of the reason Chp and Joanna Gaines were hesitant to get back into TV after wrapping up “Fixer Upper” originally. The break was much warranted, but the stories and helping people would eventually draw them back.
“TV was a funny thing for me. I’m an authentic, sincere person. So, as long as things are natural and organic, I’m in my element. But the more staged something becomes, or the more required something becomes, it boxes me up …” Chip Gaines said during a 2018 interview with Cowboys & Indians magazine.
