Always up for an adventure, Chip Gaines takes his son Duke to explore a new Fixer Upper project, which includes a lot of laughs thanks to Duke’s quick responses and discovery of something pretty unusual within the house that the father-son duo was in.

In his latest Instagram video post, Chip Gaines is exploring the latest Fixer Upper project. Duke is heard constantly shutting down Chip’s optimism in finding cool things in the mess, which includes a coffin. 

“#demoDay at Minty Green,” Chip Gaines writes in the post’s caption. “When ‘bring your kid to work day’ goes terribly wrong… Sorry about that Duke! #heSawSomeStuff.”

Chip Gaines Opens Up About How His Wife Joanna Helps Calm Him Down & Focus on What’s Important 

During his interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year, Chip reveals that his wife, Joanna, helps to calm him down and focus on what’s really important in life.

“I was like a dog chasing my tail in a circle, trying to be all the things for all the people and I can just, beyond the shadow of a doubt, quickly say [Joanna] grounded me,” Chip proclaims. 

Chip also says that he was almost like the dog then saw the tennis ball or whatever and calmed down. “I was just such an idiot and I was just so anxious and so excitable.”

Chip also recalls how his father used to say that talking to him was like trying to get a drink of water at a fire hydrant. “I was always that kind of energy. It wasn’t pleasant and wasn’t cute. It was like anxiety-inducing, you know?”

The Fixer Upper star shares that Joanna just grounded him to where it was almost like when he died or he was on his deathbed, he’ll say that he owes his wife his life because she helped settle him down. 

“Chip is always teaching if you’re not having fun, if you’re not enjoying and savoring these moments, then why are you doing it? Joanna chimes in. “And he also pushes me to do it.”

Chip Reveal What His Wife and Kids Really Think About His Long Hair

During a recent interview with Access Hollywood, Chip Gaines reveals the reason behind his decision to grow out his hair.

“I’ve never had long hair. So for me, I’ve had a lot of these odd bucket lists that I want say before I die, ‘I did this and I did that.’ And long hair was one of them.”

Joanna also says that their daughters really do like Chip’s new long hair. Now his hair is longer than Ella’s. “It’s this wild free, adventurous side which is huge. So I think it matches his personality.”
