‘Fixer Upper’ Star Joanna Gaines Shows Off Mouthwatering Pizza in Family’s Last Dinner Before School Starts

by Suzanne Halliburton

Fixer Upper star Joanna Gaines showed off the perfect way to feed five kids in the family’s final dinner before the hectic start of school.

Gaines posted a photo on her Instagram, showing off a tasty pizza. Of course, it was homemade. We wouldn’t expect anything but from one of America’s favorite moms (who cooks, writes, redecorates homes on Fixer Upper and while creating a lifestyle brand.)

Gaines wrote: “A simple at-home pizza night before everyone heads back to school! Check out my fall Hearth & Hand with Magnolia collection—now available at Target. #HearthandHand

Fixer Upper Stars Have 5 Kids Ranging in Age from 3 to 17

Joanna and Chip Gaines have five children. Fans often saw four of the children during the first version of Fixer Upper on HGTV. Oldest Drake now is 17. Ella Rose is 14, while Duke is 13 and Emmie Kay is 11. Crew was born after Fixer Upper went off the air on HGTV. He’s now 3. Homemade pizza works for any age.

The Fixer Upper family took a trip to Montecito, Calif., last week, getting in a short getaway before school starts. The Gaines crew stayed at a beachfront home. Photos showed that Chip Gaines still is maintaining his shoulder-length hair. Meanwhile, Joanna posted some video clips, captioning it “Savoring the last days of summer.”

Last month, the Gaines launched Magnolia Network on Discovery+ and the Magnolia app. The couple named the network “Magnolia” after an old tree found on the Baylor University campus. On one of their first dates, Chip brought Joanna a flower from the tree. The Gaines’ network goes to cable in January. But shows available to stream right now include a rebranding of Fixer Upper. It’s called Fixer Upper: Welcome Home. One of the most recent shows featured a renovation of a home built during the Great Depression. Joanna also has a cooking show called Magnolia Table. And Chip is in a documentary showing his marathon training.

On Sunday, Joanna Gaines introduced her fall edition of the Hearth and Hand with Magnolia line at Target. While it’s still blazing hot in Waco, the fall line includes warm, cozy blankets and the perfect autumn home fragrances. You can use the line to cook and/or entertain, while keeping your home looking perfect in Joanna’s favorite neutrals with a touch of green. If you’re a Fixer Upper fan, you know Joanna’s farmhouse-chic aesthetic.

The launch of the Magnolia Network made the Gaines even more valuable. When the two first started Fixer Upper in 2013, they received about $500,000 per season. By the time they left ended the show on HGTV in 2018, the two were worth $20 million. Yahoo Finance reported last week that the Gaines’ empire has the potential of being a $1 billion brand.
