Any fan of home restoration shows knows who Chip and Joanna Gaines are.

Fast forward a few years later, and they’re creating home furnishing decor, opening several businesses and more.
Check out the list below to answer all your burning questions about the King and Queen of Home Renovation.
Chip and Joanna have five kids together — yes, you read that correctly. In addition to starting businesses and flipping homes and just being perfect, they’re raising five kids together. Their kids include Drake (13), Ella Rose (11), Duke (10), Emma Kay (8) and baby Crew (1).
Their desire to spend more time with their children was the principal motivation behind ending Fixer Upper in 2018. It’s clear that family always comes first for Chip and Joanna.
The pair are also letting their kids decide how much they want to participate in their parent’s business ventures and fame. If the kids want to participate, their parents are more than willing to include them, but if not, they have made it clear that they will completely respect their children’s decision.
Chip and Joanna live in Waco, Texas and since skyrocketing into fame, they have really put the town on the map. But Waco isn’t just their place of residence, it’s a place for business. Chip and Joanna Gaines have created Magnolia Market, a shopping center that draws visitors from around the state and country.
At Magnolia Market, you can do a little bit of everything. If you just want to chill, you can relax on the spacious lawn space, even taking some to play yard games available. You can also grab a snack or meal at the Market’s food trucks. For those who love all things plants and flowers, there is a garden space in which you can purchase new plants and tools for your garden or just enjoy the flowers. Lastly, you can treat yourself to the bakery at Silos Baking Company, known for their cookies and biscuits.
Their Future Plans
Despite ending their show, Chip and Joanna show no signs of slowing down anytime soon. It was announced in April of 2019 that they were starting their own cable network which has yet to be named. They have partnered with Discovery Inc. In addition to a cable network, they plan on starting a streaming service as well. This new network will replace the current Discovery DIY channel. It is slated to premiere in the summer of 2020.
