Sometimes, motherhood means trying to get everyone out the door with clean socks on. Sometimes, though, it means channeling Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in a late-night impromptu dance party with your 7-year-old.
HGTV’s Fixer Upper star Joanna Gaines and her daughter Emmie Kay had a blast on Wednesday night showing off their best La La Land moves. Gaines posted a video on Instagram of the two of them hoofing it Broadway-style in silhouette — and all we can say is Gosling and Stone better watch out, because these Gaines gals are on fire. Gaines captioned the video, “Late night dance party #emmielou #lalaland.”
Is anybody else surprised to learn that Gaines is actually an amazing dancer? Look at that Fosse footwork! Hey, Dancing with the Stars: Maybe it’s time for a parent-child edition.
Gaines and her husband, Chip, have been married for 14 years, and in addition to Emmie Kay, the couple has three other kids: sons Drake and Duke, ages 11 and 8, and daughter Ella Rose, 9. Emmie Kay, the youngest of the posse, has apparently been telling her parents she’s ready for a new sibling
— ensuring that the fam will be able to perform A Chorus Line
Joanna Gaines told People about Emmie’s wish: “Emmie has never really wanted one, and now she’s like, ‘Okay. I want a brother or sister.’ So I’m thinking that might be a sign.”
sounded less convinced. “I think that’s a sign that Emmie’s lost her mind.” Valid points on both sides.
We’re all for more Gaines kids — at least if it means a constant stream of choreography videos. Plus, the Gaineses will soon have more time on their hands for baby-making, since Joanna Gaines confirmed on her blog
that Season 5 of Fixer Upper
will be their last.
“This has been an amazing adventure! We have poured our blood, sweat and tears into this show,” she wrote. “We would be foolish to think we can go and go and fire on all cylinders and never stop to pause. Our family is healthy and our marriage has honestly never been stronger… This is just us recognizing that we need to catch our breath for a moment. Our plan is to take this time to shore up and strengthen the spots that are weak, rest the places that are tired and give lots of love and attention to both our family and our businesses.”
Sounds like the family has their priorities straight for sure: rest, love, dance parties. Check.
