Joanna gaines pregnant 2017

Joanna Gaines may already be a mom to four kids, but her current pregnancy is her first in the public eye. By the time Fixer Upper got big, it had been a few years since she and Chip had their youngest child.

The due date for the Gaineses’ fifth baby (who just happens to be a boy!) is rumored to be only one month away, but one thing’s for sure: Joanna is glowing, as proven by these baby bump photos.

In brand new snapshots she shared on Instagram, Joanna says she is “scoping out one of our latest projects,” but we can’t help but notice something else: her biggest bump yet! The pregnant star can be seen inside and outside the property, which, as she points out, “is going to be a good one. Look at these interior and exterior walls!”

The designer seems to be focused on taking care of business before the baby comes. Not only did Joanna appear on Today Show last month to promote her new cookbook, Magnolia Table, but she and Chip also came to New York in April. During their visit, the Gaineses chatted with and revealed how they told Drake, Ella, Duke, and Emmie about the new baby.

A pregnant Joanna also covered the summer issue of Magnolia Journal wearing a stunning floral dress.

Then at her birthday party, Joanna posed with her mom and her sisters (click through to the fourth photo) wearing a black maternity dress.

Another black dress (this one a short-sleeve maxi) covered her bump in this picture beside a bathroom door from a flip house project.

One of the couple’s final “fixer uppers” was personal, as viewers not only got a first look at their newly opened Waco restaurant, Magnolia Table, but also at Joanna’s baby bump.

Notice the baby bump?? 🤰🏻 #FixerUpper

— Joanna Gaines (@joannagaines) March 28, 2018

“Notice the baby bump??” Joanna tweeted the night her first-ever pregnant appearance on the show aired.

Last month, the stars were spotted filming a scene for the show. Although Joanna is wearing a baggy sweatshirt, you can still see her stomach—not to mention an adorable behind-the-scenes detail: She’s standing on a block so that she and Chip are the same height for the camera!

The designer has shared some other baby bump photos as well—including pictures from the Tim Tebow Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic.

In the first few shots, Joanna poses next to Chip and Tim in a black one-shoulder cocktail dress, and you can hardly even tell she’s pregnant. But the fifth photo, in which the star smiles in jeans, a white tee, and a long cardigan, shows a glimpse at her growing baby bump.

Prior to that, Joanna gave fans an even better look in photos from a gathering at their restaurant.

She’s also posted selfies taken during a photo shoot, writing, “There’s no hiding this baby bump anymore.”

The star’s stomach just barely makes the frame, but it’s definitely there. These are the first photos of Joanna since the couple announced the pregnancy in January—also with a belly shot (both his and hers!).

Shortly after revealing the exciting baby news, Joanna posted a sonogram video and said, “Chip swears he can already tell it’s a boy.” It turns out, he was right!

For much of the fifth and final season of Fixer Upper, the designer was not showing—but remember, most of those episodes were filmed a long time ago.

We can’t wait for more baby bump photos! Now, the question is: What will Chip and Jo name the newest Baby Gaines?

With Due Date Approaching, Joanna Gaines Shares Brand-New Baby Bump Photo

It seems like it was just yesterday that Chip and Joanna Gaines told the world that they’re expecting their fifth child. But believe it or not, they made that announcement way back in January.

Joanna was already far enough along at that time to have a tiny baby bump, which she showed off under a gray hoodie. Chip wore a matching gray shirt and stuck his stomach out to look even bigger than hers, making for an adorable pregnancy announcement.

Just two months later, Chip and Joanna revealed that they are expecting a baby boy. Chip enlisted the help of a young fan named Gage for the gender reveal, and the precious moment was caught on camera.

As a huge fan of the Gaines’ show Fixer Upper, Gage knew that the couple names all of their daughters with “E” names and all of their sons with “D” names. So when Chip asked him if he could help him think of a “D” name, Gage knew exactly what that meant!

#Gage was so thrilled to get to meet you! Thank you for making his day!

While Chip and Joanna have never revealed their exact due date, they have said that the baby is set to make his way into the world this summer. With it now being June, that means that Joanna’s due date is likely approaching soon!

To celebrate, Joanna’s friends hosted a special baby shower for her. Calling it a “book shower,” guests came to the event with books in tow for Baby Gaines.

The entire party was book themed, complete with a large book tower covered in balloons. It was the perfect backdrop for Joanna to pose in front of for a new baby bump photo.

Just look at her! She’s glowing with happiness!

I like big books and I cannot lie?- Blown away by the creativity and thoughtfulness of my friends- just the cutest book shower ever for baby Gaines! Feelin’ the love… now I just need to figure out how to shove these books in my car so I can get them to the farm! #babygotbooks

Joanna Gaines Says Newborn Son Crew Is ‘Settling in Just Fine’ in His Nursery — See the Photo!

Joanna Gaines shared a new photo of her newborn son Crew to Instagram on Saturday, giving an update on how her sweet baby boy doing in the caption.

The Fixer Upper star, 40, gave birth to Crew — her fifth child with husband Chip Gaines — on June 21.

“It’s been a little over a week and he’s settling in just fine 🧡,” Joanna wrote on Instagram of a shot showing Crew swaddled in a rocker in his nursery.

Before Joanna gave birth to Crew, it had been eight years since she and Chip last parented a newborn. The couple are also mom and dad to sons Drake, 13, and Duke, 10, and daughters Ella, 11, and Emmie Kay, 8.

Back in April, Joanna said the idea of having kids around the house a bit longer is something they’re both excited about.

“We think about things like when Emmie goes off to college this little one will only be 10,” she told PEOPLE in April. “It’s just crazy to think how wide that gap is, but Chip just loves hanging out with the kids and it’s just such a sweet thing.”

“I think it’s sweet because they’re older now, and I can see them wanting to be a part of this,” she added to PEOPLE in May. “We’re all rallying around this baby, which I feel is a sweet gift to our family.”

Two days after Crew’s birth, the proud parents were back at home in Waco, Texas, with their healthy son and plunging back into roles with which they’ve had plenty of practice.

Chip, 43, and Joanna typically split diaper duty, but he’s in charge of swaddling: “Chip’s always been able to rock our babies to sleep,” Joanna told PEOPLE.

Now after their year of surprises (including Crew arriving more than two weeks early), the pair have never been happier to leave the future open-ended.

“We’re looking forward to what’s to come, and what’s to come, we have no idea,” Joanna said. “I think one thing about me and Chip is that we never like to look really far in advance and plan, that’s never been how we are. I joke with my friends that I’m going to be that 45-year-old who’s pregnant.”

She added, “We’ve always kind of rolled really spontaneous.”
