If you’re anything like us, you were thrilled when Chip and Joanna Gaines first announced that they’re expecting baby No. 5 on Instagram on January 2. Equally hilarious and sweet, their pregnancy reveal photo was true-to-form for the beloved Fixer Upper stars, featuring Joanna gently rubbing Chip’s belly in the same way that many folks would touch a pregnant woman’s tummy. So, naturally, we’ve been waiting with baited breath for a first glimpse of Joanna’s baby bump ever since they shared their exciting news!
Well, thanks to Grace-Marie Photography, we can take a big breath again because the wait is finally over! Based in Waco, Texas, the talented namesake photographer got the chance to take pictures of Chip and Joanna while they were filming in front of their soon-to-open restaurant, Magnolia Table.
Thankfully for all of us, Grace-Marie shared the images on her Instagram page as a slideshow, so we can all spend the rest of our day clicking through the sweet photos over and over (and over) again! (Click on the little arrow that appears on the side of the photo when you hover your cursor over it.) Although Joanna was wearing a loose-fitting sweatshirt at the time these pictures were taken, we spy her tiny baby bump peeking out! Is she glowing in these snapshots, or what?
We can’t get over how happy these two look together — even during a relatively candid shot from the side. It reminds us of the pure joy they must have felt when Joanna posted a video of her ultrasound on her Instagram page shortly after their pregnancy announcement. We wonder if Chip still thinks the newest addition to their family will be a boy! We’re also wondering if they’ll use one of the baby names we picked out for them!
No matter whether the proud parents have a boy or a girl, we’re definitely looking forward to seeing even more baby bump photos from the Gaines family over the next few months — and, of course, photos of the little bundle of joy after he — or she! — finally arrives!
While we wait for more baby bump photos from Joanna, take a look back at some of the Gaines’ biggest and best ‘Fixer Upper’ living room transformations in the video below:
