Joanna Gaines “jaw dropped” when she found out she was pregnant with baby number five.
“I had been feeling a little emotional and crazy and thought, ‘Wow, this isn’t me,’ ” she says in the latest issue of PEOPLE. “Then all of a sudden I realized, ‘Hey, I remember this.’ When I saw the results of the test, my jaw dropped. Chip was in the driveway about to leave when I called him back and said, ‘We’re pregnant!’ He was so excited. We’re both just so excited.”
Joanna also touched on the couple’s decision to end their HGTV show, Fixer Upper.
“When we were done, we had no plan like, ‘Let’s have baby No. 5,’ ” Joanna says. “It was a total surprise. But when we found out, it solidified that it was the right decision to leave when we did.”
Joanna says the couple’s children can’t wait to meet their new sibling.
“Every single time they see my belly they have to rub it,” she says. “I think it’s sweet because they’re older now, and I can see them wanting to be a part of this. We’re all rallying around this baby, which I feel is a sweet gift to our family.”
The couple has been tight lipped about when baby no. 5 is due.
