On the cover of the the spring 2019 issue of Magnolia Journal, Joanna Gaines stands in the middle of a New York City street with a smile on her face. Yet, little did we know she had a very big reason behind that little smile.
She was pregnant!
“We were in New York City shooting (and) I was actually pregnant with Crew here so I was hiding behind this rain jacket,” Gaines admitted in a recent promotional video for the magazine. “I was really sick this day, feeling super nauseous and it had been raining that whole week.”
Gaines says coming clean with this secret falls directly in line with the magazine’s current theme of ‘pursuing authenticity.’
“The second I stepped foot on the street, it stopped raining. I had friends throwing bottled water,” the Fixer Upper star admitted about the photo shoot for her and hubby Chip Gaines’ popular magazine. “They were squirting bottled water at me. But we made it.”
“How’s that for authentic, buddy,” she asks Crew.
Indeed, all of these months later, Gaines is also shown in the video being authentic and enjoying quality time with baby Crew, who is now already seven months old and getting cuter by the day.
Chip and Joanna are also the proud parents of sons Duke and Drake along with daughters Emmie Kay and Ella Rose.
