You Need to Watch Chip Gaines & Son Pull Off This Jet Ski Stunt
Someone alert the NFL (but maybe not Joanna Gaines) because Drake Gaines is ready for his shot at the pros.
Former Fixer Upper star and lover of all things demo day Chip Gaines took advantage of a perfect Texas summer afternoon by taking his 13-year-old son out to the lake for some good old-fashioned daredevil action with nothing but a boat, a Jet Ski and a football.
On Thursday, Gaines shared a video with his nearly 4 million followers that featured a remarkable — and totally dangerous — stunt in which he threw a football into the blue abyss. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, Drake rode in on a freaking Jet Ski and caught the ball, not even pausing to do a celebration dance à la Remember the Titans.
"You gotta take a break every once in a while," the father of five captioned the video, which we're sure nearly gave the better half of Magnolia a heart attack.
This summer has indeed been busy for the Gaines family, who welcomed their newest member, Crew, in June. At the time, Chip Gaines shared his excitement on Twitter by saying, "And then there were 5."
"The Gaines crew is now 1 stronger," he continued. "10 beautiful toes and 10 beautiful fingers all accounted for, and big momma is doing great."
After seeing his latest adventure with his oldest son, we can't help but wonder what wild adventures the handyman has in mind for little Crew's 10 fingers and toes in the future — though we're guessing it might have something to do with water sports.
In the meantime, it seems like everyone in the family — Chip, Joanna, Drake, Ella Rose, Duke, Emmie Kay and Crew — is having a good time taking things slowly as they soak up the summer sun.
It's nice to see the Gaines gang unwind a bit after wrapping their popular HGTV series earlier this year. While they're still working hard on Magnolia, which includes a home decor line and a stylish new restaurant, it must be nice for them to have the cameras off as they cherish new memories with their expanded brood.
