Thanks to Chip, We Know When Joanna Gaines’ Baby is Due and It’s Sooner Than You Might Think


I don’t know about you but Chip and Joanna’s new baby boy on the way is more exciting to me than on the royal babies and weddings combined.

The Gaines duo announced their pregnancy in early January and while they’ve yet to disclose their official due date, they’ve given us a few clues that, using basic math and our knowledge of the birds and the bees, we can use to estimate Joanna’s due date.

When they were teasing the news of their pregnancy, Chip took to Twitter to share some details about the night that led to baby no. 5’s conception. “You might recall a few months back.. the ever amazing, ever romantic Johnny Swim was in Waco. And they put on a little too romantic of a concert.. anyways, one thing led to another, & we are officially pregnant. And I could not be more EXCITED,” he said at the time.

Johnny Swim performed in Waco on October 13 of 2017 during Magnolia’s Silobration, so, assuming this information from Chip is true, that would put Joanna’s due date somewhere in July of 2018!

The name of baby no. 5 has yet to be announced, but Chip and Joanna appeared on “Today” to talk about Joanna’s new cookbook, and the two shared that they’re deciding between a name and a C name for baby boy Gaines.
