The Fixer Upper stars announced they are expecting their fifth child together on Instagram Tuesday.

“Congrats @joannagaines & @chipgaines! We can’t wait to meet #BabyGaines. #FixerUpper #GrowingUpGaines,” the network tweeted.
The pair previously teased the baby news before their announcement on Tuesday.
“New year, new hope… Be expectant. There is just something about fresh faith and unwavering trust that brings life to our souls. May this be your best year yet. #2018,” the mother-to-be wrote on Instagram Monday.
In November, Chip revealed he was eager to get back to growing his family.
“We had four babies right before the show started, and then we’ve had zero babies since the show started,” he told Houston ABC affiliate, KTRK. “For me, I’m really excited to go back and try to maybe . . . try to make some more babies.”
While his wife wasn’t exactly on board. “Maybe . . . We have different answers,” she said.
The couple seem to have swapped opinions on the subject in the last few months. Back in June, Joanna told PEOPLE, “I would love another baby — or twins! The kids are always asking me, ‘Mom, can you have another baby?’ But Chip thinks we’re done.”
And in September, Joanna told PEOPLE: “Family is the most important thing in the world.”
