Holy shiplap, the newest member of the Gaines family is cute! But unlike Chip and Joanna’s other children — Drake, Duke, Emmie Kay, and Ella — this new kid won’t be able to help out at the family’s Magnolia storefront, mainly because she doesn’t have any thumbs.
“Chip woke the kids up this morning with this sweet baby goat… cutest wake up call ever!” Joanna captioned a sweet Instagram post of their newborn kid.
Sincere apologies to anyone who thought the couple had given birth to their fifth child, a baby boy, but we couldn’t resist an udderly good (or cheesy… sorry — we’ll stop) joke.
This isn’t the first time Chip has surprised his family with new animals. He’s been known to show up at the farm with puppies, kittens, pigs and calves. What can we say? If there’s anything that man loves more than demo day, it’s his collection of furry friends. And who could blame him? They’re so darn cute.
I for one will never fully understand just how the Gaines family can accomplish so much while making it all look so easy. All with a fifth kid on the way, they just wrapped their final season of Fixer Upper to prepare for their new show, Fixer Upper: Behind the Design, which premieres next week on HGTV. Additionally, they just opened a breakfast joint and Jo’s about to release her first cookbook, Magnolia Table. Oh, and did we mention they’re still running their shop in Waco, Texas, and selling goods at Target? It’s almost annoying how together their shit is.
In all sincerity, we can’t wait to see what this family does next — at the very least, we’re counting on more baby goat pics, which in these trying times is something we all need.
