Joanna Gaines may already be a mom to four kids, but her current pregnancy is her first in the public eye. By the time Fixer Upper got big, it had been a few years since she and Chip had their youngest child.
In brand new snapshots she shared on Instagram, Joanna says she is "scoping out one of our latest projects," but we can't help but notice something else: her biggest bump yet! The pregnant star can be seen inside and outside the property, which, as she points out, "is going to be a good one. Look at these interior and exterior walls!"
The designer seems to be focused on taking care of business before the baby comes. Not only did Joanna appear on Today Show last month to promote her new cookbook, Magnolia Table, but she and Chip also came to New York in April. During their visit, the Gaineses chatted with CountryLiving.com and revealed how they told Drake, Ella, Duke, and Emmie about the new baby.
Another black dress (this one a short-sleeve maxi) covered her bump in this picture beside a bathroom door from a flip house project.
"Notice the baby bump??" Joanna tweeted the night her first-ever pregnant appearance on the show aired.
Last month, the stars were spotted filming a scene for the show. Although Joanna is wearing a baggy sweatshirt, you can still see her stomach-not to mention an adorable behind-the-scenes detail: She's standing on a block so that she and Chip are the same height for the camera!
The designer has shared some other baby bump photos as well-including pictures from the Tim Tebow Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic.
In the first few shots, Joanna poses next to Chip and Tim in a black one-shoulder cocktail dress, and you can hardly even tell she's pregnant. But the fifth photo, in which the star smiles in jeans, a white tee, and a long cardigan, shows a glimpse at her growing baby bump.
Prior to that, Joanna gave fans an even better look in photos from a gathering at their restaurant.
She's also posted selfies taken during a photo shoot, writing, "There's no hiding this baby bump anymore."
The star's stomach just barely makes the frame, but it's definitely there. These are the first photos of Joanna since the couple announced the pregnancy in January-also with a belly shot (both his and hers!).
Shortly after revealing the exciting baby news, Joanna posted a sonogram video and said, "Chip swears he can already tell it's a boy." It turns out, he was right!
For much of the fifth and final season of Fixer Upper, the designer was not showing-but remember, most of those episodes were filmed a long time ago.
We can't wait for more baby bump photos! Now, the question is: What will Chip and Jo name the newest Baby Gaines?
