Chip and Joanna both attended the same university, Baylor University where Chip graduated with a degree in Business Administration in 1988 whereas Joanna graduated three years later in 2001 with a Communications degree.

But that's now how they first met.

Chip, a real estate and construction pro, wanted new tires for his renovation franchise and as fate might have helped, he found a little tire shop which happened to be Joanna's parents

As soon as he entered, the handsome Chip instantly noticed a family picture behind the counter at the shop.

He saw beautiful Joanna and as told to the Popsugar.com, he already knew that Joanna was "the one" he would marry someday. Awwwwwwh!

After few weeks, the faulty brakes of his car sealed the deal for this couple. Yeah, that's when they first met each other.

Luckily, that day, Joanna was working in the shop too, and the two were love-struck on their first encounter.

Q political reported, Joanna, saying,

"We met in the waiting area and hit it off immediately. He was genuinely engaging and he had such a sincere smile.”

The story doesn't end here. On their first date, Joanna revealed that she had a horrible time! as reported by RadarOnline. She didn't

She didn't explain exactly what happened but she shared," I had a horrible time on our first date and I almost didn't give him a second chance!"

But she did give him a wing and now the couple is one of the inspiring and successful couples that we look up to.

The perfect couple also started working together with flipping and renovating old houses to new ones.

Joanna, since her early teens, always wanted to open a boutique and with the help of her husband, they opened up the famous "Magnolia Market".


On an interview with Qpolitical.com, Chip shared how they thought of the name of their successful empire "Magnolia".

He told,

"When we were just dating, I would pick these blooms from Magnolia trees. So when we had the opportunity and were trying to figure out what to name her little boutique, Magnolia Market just stood out to us.”

In 2003, the match-made-in-heaven finally tied the knot in a beautiful, private ceremony with their family and closest friends.

Raising four kids, doing a show together and handling the huge business empire, these two are one hell of a team and our favorite couple too!

Not so perfect relationship of Chip and Joanna, yet going strong

When you have a partner, whose personality is completely different than yours and you guys are constantly arguing and fighting over small things, and to add, your career is going down hill, tell us the first thing that comes to your mind.

Of course, DIVORCE or TAKE A BREAK! But this didn't happen with our shining couple Chip and Joanna.

On an interview with RadarOnline, the duo revealed marriage problems they've had during the past few years and how they're getting through it.

Joanna told the sources, "If you give Chip a boundary, he’s gonna break that boundary,” Joanna, 38, revealed to the camera. “If you give him a rule, he’s not going to follow it. If you tell him he can’t go past this line, he dips his toe over it.”

 Here's a video of Chip and Joanna talking about their marriage. Must watch!


To this, Chip replied telling Joanna that she needed someone to push her from her comfort zone. He added, “My wife is a bit of a wallflower, You know I joke around with her pretty publicly that she’s almost awkward when we first met.”

Although, both of them are from different worlds and have entirely different personalities, both of them have worked pretty hard to make their relationship and marriage work. Hats off to them for that!

Joanna's diverse ethnicity

The gorgeous mother of four, and so rich businesswoman, Joanna's background is pretty interesting. She is 1/4 Lebanese, 1/4 German, and 1/2 Korean. Pretty crazy right!

Well, it happened to be that Joanna's father is half Lebanese and half German. Her mother, on the other hand, is of Korean descent. So, we can now get how Joanna's is so beautiful, talented and smart.


Joana Gaines not leaving Fixer Upper!

You all have heard the rumors of Chip and Joana Gaines splitting up and the show coming to an end but those were all just hoaxes.

Also, Joana was making headlines that she will soon be leaving the show which shocked many fans. Recently on April, Joana wrote on her blog and adressed the rumors stating those were all just false.

She wrote,

"Don't believe everything you read!

So many things are happening right now and it feels like we are moving at the speed of light. At times, it’s even hard to keep our own parents in the loop. At this point in our career we can honestly say, we’ve heard it all — from reports of us moving our family to Vegas to us having more or less children than we actually have. At the end of the day, we’ve learned it’s impossible to control all the information that’s out there."

So, it's clear that the pair is still going solid together and both will be back with a bang on their show.

All in all, this super-adorable and an amazing couple are having the best times of their lives and we really wish them best wishes in their forthcomings and hope they remain happy and together for the rest of your lives.
