2018 may only be a few days old, but it's already about one million times better than its predecessor 2017. We already have some of the best news of the year. We know what you're thinking. It's so early in the year! How could we possibly know that we've already found the greatest news of the whole year?
Well, here it is:
Chip and Joanna Gaines are having another baby!
Yup. We called it. 2018 is going to be great (please please please).
In case you're not familiar with Chip and Joanna Gaines, they're the hosts of HGTV's home renovation show called Fixer Upper.
In the show, they guide their clients through the process of purchasing a house and then turn that house into a beautifully renovated home full of shiplap and farmhouse sinks.
They're also basically the perfect couple.
While the houses on Fixer Upper are incredible, the real appeal of the show — which is currently in its final season — is found in the relationship between Chip and Joanna. They constantly goof around with each other and show just how in love they are. They often bring their four kids (Drake, Ella, Duke, and Emme) to the houses they’re working on. The whole family is basically too delightful for words — and now they’re adding another member to the fold.
Chip started hinting at the news with this tweet right before the January 2 episode of Fixer Upper aired.
Although we’re not really sure that counts as a “hint.” Anyone who couldn’t guess the news from this tweet clearly hasn’t been paying very close attention.
Chip then shared the perfect storm of events that led up to Baby No. 5.
Apparently, a JOHNNYSWIM concert was involved. One thing led to another and next thing ya know, we’ve gained another Gaines baby in the world (see what we did there?).
The band later responded to Chip’s tweet saying, “We do what we can!”
The couple also shared this picture on Instagram of the couple's matching "bumps."
And just like that, the aforementioned “best news of 2018” was shared.
They even shared part of their ultrasound video this morning…
