Joanna and Chip Gaines took on social media to celebrate their 15th wedding anniversary by posting a throwback wedding photograph.
The Fixer Upper star posted a black and white portrait showing herself and her husband, Chip, on their wedding day, back in 2003.
The picture shows Chip sweetly kissing Joanna on her cheek, as they go on to their journey in a car decorated with the sign “Just Married”. Joanna, 40, took on her Instagram and Twitter and wrote, “It’s been a good fifteen years @chipgaines Here’s to fifty more.”
Chip, 43, was not far behind in wishing his ‘sweet girl’ a happy anniversary. He took on Twitter and wrote an original poem for his loved one.
The couple met in 2001 when Joanna was working at an auto shop owned by her father in Waco, Texas and Chip was running a handful of small businesses. Later in 2003, on May 31, the couple got married at the historic Earle-Harrison House. They honeymooned in New York, at the Drake Hotel; thus the name of their first child.
Joanna and Chip, owners of a home design and remodelling empire, are parents to four children — Drake, 13, Ella, 11, Duke, 9, and Emmie Kay, 8. The couple is expecting another child in the coming months.
Upon the announcement of ‘baby no. 5’, the duo announced that the fifth season of their home renovation show, Fixer Upper, was going to be their final one. The show aired for five seasons on HGTV from 2013 to 2018 and was an instant hit.
In an interview with People, Joanna said, “When we were done, we had no plan like, ‘Let’s have the baby no. 5,’. It was a total surprise. But when we found out, it solidified that it was the right decision to leave when we did.”
Joanna further stated, “(We) had our fair share of fights. Match made in heaven is not the term you would use to describe us. But when we mixed our personalities together, it created a spark.”
Meanwhile, Chip said, “It’s hard work. Jo and I have struggles and fighting and arguments just like anybody else. This isn’t like we got lucky and hit the lottery and the two perfect people fell in love,”
Last month, during an interview with Today, Joanna revealed that she will be focusing only on her family right now. She said, “Right now what we’re focusing on is just family, our business is here in town, and obviously me being a mom to a newborn.”
Last month, Joanna Gaines also released her own cookbook by the name ‘Magnolia Table: A Collection Of Recipes For Gathering’.
