Chip and Joanna Gaines are adding another boy to their brood.
The Fixer Upper stars announced they were expecting in January, and in a video Chip shared with more than 755,000 Twitter followers Wednesday, he revealed the sex of their fifth child.
"Alright, alright.. if we're going to announce the gender of our #5th child. It might as well come from my new friend #Gage," Chip wrote on the social media site.
In the video, the home renovator explains to Gage he and Joanna are "just about to have another little baby, 'cause Uncle Chip lost his mind." He also hints a t the baby's sex by soliciting Gage's help in coming up with a name that begins with the letter 'D.'
Chip and Joanna have two sons named Drake and Duke and two daughters, Ella and Emmie Kay.
After revealing they were having a boy, Chip jokes the information "might not even be allowed on Twitter" and advises Gage to "keep that to yourself, dude."
"But listen to me. It's a little boy," Chip confirms, "and I need a âD' name, and so far, all I can come up with was Dragon."
While Chip said Dragon wasn't a likely contender, he was right in predicting that Joanna was carrying a boy. The day after their pregnancy announcement, Joanna shared a sonogram on Instagram. "Chip swears he can already tell itâs a boy," she wrote in the caption.
In addition to welcoming a new child, the Gaines are saying goodbye to their HGTV Show Fixer Upper. The pair announced in Septembe r that current season will be the show's last.
