Joanna Gaines Shows Off Her Baby Bump On 40th Birthday

Posted at 10:46 AM, Apr 20, 2018

Joanna Gaines turned 40 on April 19 — and she celebrated in a big way!

She showed off her baby bump to her fans on Instagram and also had a few delicious doughnuts to commemorate the very special occasion.

She and husband Chip Gaines are preparing for baby number five, which they (accidentally) announced will be a boy.

The “Fixer Upper” star seems to be loving the stage of life she and her family are in right now, as she captioned the photo, “This is 40. And I like it…”


This is 40. And I like it… #pregnantandforty #anddoughnuts

The mom-to-be also added “#pregnantand40,” along with “#anddoughnuts,” in case you missed that big plate of yummy doughnuts — which look absolutely delicious, by the way.

The Gaineses may have just ended their “Fixer Upper” show for good, but considering there’s a new baby on the way and that they’ve just opened a new restaurant — the timing couldn’t have been more perfect.

In an emotional send-off letter to the show, Joanna showed fans her growing baby bump.

She wrote: “With our little ones getting bigger, we had this gut feeling that it was time to step back and focus on them and our businesses here in Waco, Texas. And although that’s why we thought we decided to step away from the show, we now realize with this little one on the way that there was a bigger plan in place for us all along.”


Things have a funny way of working out like that — and clearly, this birthday girl is more than OK with that. Happy birthday to the expecting mommy!
