It’s safe to say that Chip and Joanna Gaines are the embodiment of relationship goals. They have a beautiful family, post an endless amount of adorable photos, and inspired people regularly on their HGTV show Fixer Upper. Their unbreakable bond has always been apparent, and in fact, is one of the things that made many viewers love their show. Unlike a lot of famous couples, these two are never shy when it comes to talking about their marriage. Case in point: Chip wrote an anniversary message to Joanna that is so sweet, it will put your own significant other to shame (no offense).
Chip and Joanna first met back in Waco, Texas in 2001, and quickly fell in love. After a year, they were engaged, and they got married in Waco on May 31, 2003. They currently have four kids together, and they’re expecting their fifth this summer. This weekend, the couple is celebrating 15 years of marriage, and it’s hard not to get sucked into how sweet they are towards each other — especially when they’re posting about it all over social media! Chip wrote the nicest anniversary message to Joanna, and as if that couldn’t get more romantic, get this: It’s a poem! Hold on, we’re swooning.
15 years.. where’d they go— Chip Gaines (@chipgaines) May 31, 2018
15 years.. I’d like to know
15 more, to God I pray
15 more just to make her day
Happy anniversary sweet girl!
Does it get any sweeter than this very public display of affection?! We don’t think so!
Chip and Joanna’s story isn’t just cute because of how they got together and quickly fell in love, but also because they’ve always been business partners. After getting married, Joanna joined Chip in his business of flipping houses, and shortly afterwards, they opened their store Magnolia Market together. They were doing so well flipping houses, though, that they got a lot of attention for it, and in 2012, HGTV approached them about doing the show Fixer Upper. The first episode aired in 2013, and pretty much instantly took off.
Joanna once told PopSugar that she had once mentioned to Chip that she wanted to learn how to play the drums.
She said, “The next day there was a brand-new set of drums in the living room. This theme of pushing me to follow my dreams has continued in our 12 years of marriage. Whether it is drum lessons or starting a business, he has always been the wind at my back that encourages me to go for it.”
This probably helps to explain how they created a business empire. Aside from the store and the show, the two launched a quarterly lifestyle publication, The Magnolia Journal, a line of 150 paint colors, a line of 70 wallpaper designs, a line of furniture, and a bed and breakfast called The Magnolia House. They published a memory called The Magnolia Story, and recently got a home goods line in Target. While Fixer Upper is no longer on air, Joanna has a spin-off series called Behind the Design, and they have a ton of other ventures going on. On top of all of that, the two own a restaurant together called Magnolia Table.
They are also always posting adorable photos of themselves for their followers and fans, like this one Joanna posted for their anniversary:
If you’re not already in love with them as a couple, just look at this video of them announcing the gender of their fifth child. It’s almost impossible not to want to be a part of their lives!
One thing is for sure: This is a celebrity couple we’re pretty sure is destined to be together forever!
