Chip and Joanna Gaines reveal the gender of their fifth child

The gender of Chip and Joanna Gaines’ fifth child has been revealed! The happy father announced what he and Joanna are having via Twitter in his usual goofy way.

In a post-Fixer Uppertweet, Chip shared the gender reveal with a new friend, one he met through @tebowfoundation. “Alright, alright,” Chip began. “If we’re going to announce the gender of our #5th child. It might as well come from my new friend #Gage! Take it away my man.”

In the clip, Chip explains that he’s about to have become a father for the fifth time — but he’s a little short on names. “I can’t think of a D name,” Chip tells Gage. “Can you help me think of a D-name?” In addition to seeming delighted to have this insider info, Gage quickly deduces that Joanna and Chip are having a baby boy. After all, they’ve given both their boys D names (Drake and Duke), and both their girls E names (Ella and Emmie).

When Gage exclaims “A boy!”, Chip responds: “A boy! Is that a secret? I don’t know-that might not even be allowed on Twitter. You better keep that to yourself, dude!”

“I need a D-name,” Chip goes on, “and so far all I can come up with is Dragon. And [Joanna’s] like, ‘You are not calling that baby Dragon!'”

Apparently, Chip’s gender speculating instincts are second-to-none. Two months ago, Joanna posted an Instagram of her sonogram and included in the caption that Chip was already speculating that it was a boy:

But the couple is still keeping a tight grip on their pregnancy narrative. Today, Joanna posted a gorgeous flower-transfer turtorial on her blog, but made no mention of the exciting news.
