The two closed one chapter of their lives with sweet social media posts as their last episode aired. Chip, 43, tweeted before the episode began, “Jo and I can’t believe we’re watching the last episode of #FixerUpper Who’s watching with us?”

He followed it with several other tweets, including, “Last #demoday I’m not crying, you’re crying. #FixerUpper”.

“And that’s a wrap! #FixerUpper family we are forever grateful for your support over the last 5 seasons. Don’t worry.. you can always find us here @magnolia in Waco!”

Alongside their kids, Chip recalled his first date with Joanna, saying it had ties to their famous Magnolia tree.

“You know what’s interesting about a magnolia tree?” He asked them. “One of mama and I’s first dates, I climbed up a magnolia tree and I pulled her off a magnolia bloom and I gave it to her.”

Fans of the Gaines now have spinoff, Behind the Design, to look forward to. It premieres Tuesday, April 10, and will dig deeper into how Joanna transforms her previously dilapidated properties into stunning farmhouse-inspired homes.
