After leaving childhood behind and radically jumping to teenage, the entertainment preference too changes. From carton networks to HBOs and then finally settling to HGTV. Its funny, things we liked during our childhood no longer is entertained by us.
Keeping everything aside, HGTV channel has been our favorites, from Carlos Bakery to Master Chef we have loved everything about it. And what we loved the most was the show “Fixer Upper”. The show was basically hosted by one of the most successful real estate couple Joanna and Chip Gaines.
They proved how can a power couple gain success through unbreakable love and support from their partner. Through buying, selling and renovating homes, today they have become a proud owners of construction company, bakery, television shows, author and a lovely parent.
Despite blooming together, their marriage once did go through a wobbly experience. Regardless of trouble they chose to stick strong and rejuvenate their relationship.
Joanna & Chip Gaines married life? Still rocky or has stabilized?
Chip and Joanna has one of the strongest marriages in the whole of entertainment biz.
Before tying knot, they attended same university, Baylor University, where they were wholly unaware about each other.
But, before falling head over heels in love, they have a strange story to share. The meeting took place frequently at Firestone tire shop owned by Joanna ‘s father. It was a love at first sight from Chip’s end, as he saw her in one of the family photographs kept in a shop by her father.
“We met in the waiting area and hit it off immediately. He was genuinely engaging and he had such a sincere smile.”
While Chip added,
“Her dad made the mistake of putting a pic of their family behind the counter at his shop. I knew I’d marry her one day just by the picture on the wall.”
Since then chip continuously returned to the shop till he met her. In 2001, their love story bloomed efficiently, which made them tie knot in 2003, May 31, at Earle-Harrison-House, Waco.
