Before HGTV fame, Chip and Joanna Gaines were an ordinary couple living in Waco, Texas who owned a small business. They found the most run-down homes in their community and brought new life to them from the inside out. While Chip and his crew go to work, bringing the house’s structure up to par, his wife Joanna brings her eye for design to create beautiful interiors that truly feel like home. Fans of their popular show Fixer Upper have admired their work for years. But have you seen the interior of the couple’s own home on their farm in Texas? Take a look!
Love At First Sight
Chip and Joanna’s story is truly one for the books. Everyone dreams of meeting someone who compliments them as well as this loving couple does. The couple met in Waco, Texas, in 2001. Chip was working odd jobs as a local entrepreneur of sorts, while Joanna helped her father’s local tire business by appearing in their commercials and ads.
Chip came into Joanna’s father’s shop and although they had no idea what the future had in store for them, the two hit it off. Just two years later, they knew it was meant to be, and they tied the knot in 2003.
Everything changed when Joanna became pregnant, as we’ll see next.
