    We watch quite a bit of Jo Ann and Chips Gaines show, Fixer-Upper. Early this week, the couple announced that Jo was pregnant with their 5th child. Apparently not all of their fans were happy hearing about this. To some degree, the couple were slammed for having another kid. A viewer wrote on Facebook that he seen an episode of Fixer-Upper where their 4 children were asked if they wanted a new brother or sister and all four answered "no". Some Facebook posting are saying " Why on earth would you want another child? Isn't the population of the U.S. way, way to high in the first place?" Another poster stated, "You two should know better than to have another child. You already have four!"

    Each of them are worth $8 million dollars. Together, $16 million plus.

    As far as I'm concerned, I really don't care if they are about to have child number 15. But, that sure isn't the way some of their viewers/fans feel.

    I don't even know who they are but if they can afford another child, it's up to them I guess but I wonder who is raising their kids...nannies?

    My personal opinion is that 5 is too many in today's world but if you can do a good job raising them, it's up to you.

    I think 3 is even too much and not easy when both parents work. My son has 3 boys, only 2 years apart and it's very time consuming and stressful.

    But they're great parents and the boys are all doing well....my son did get a vasectomy after the 3rd one.

    After 2 boys I think they just wanted to try for a girl...

    Well I loved reading on the FB news trends that they were having another baby. I love babies, always have and always will and my opinion is that if that's what they want then I'm happy for them. :)

    They are raising their kids Chrissy...although I'm sure they do have Nanny and family help when they are busy doing their renovations, etc. They include their kids in a lot of their episodes and show a lot of their home life with their kids too. You can tell they love Family and I'm glad they decided to expand theirs. :)

    Have never seen a nanny, ever.

    Being worth that much money, they can pretty much afford anything they want. Thing is, some of their "Fixer-Upper" houses have been sold. Apparently not everyone wants to live in Waco.

    As do I and there is no doubt in my mind that with this couple their baby will get the best...and I'm not talking about material things....but the baby will have that too.

    Somebody has to watch the kids when they're working....but it's not my business anyway. I really don't care how many children people have as long as they're taken care of and not neglected.

    I sure wish that Chip would wear his ball cap right. Sometimes he does, and sometimes it's backwards. When I see the "backwards" cap, I turn the station.

    Their kids are going to be completely spoiled with the money Chip and Jo have. That's not necessarily a good thing either.

    Somebody does watch their kids when they are working...and I think most of their kids are in school now too.

    I used to live in Waco, and at that time it was one of my favorite places to live. :) And the Gaines have helped build up Waco with not only their renovations but with starting businesses there too. Their show is my favorite on the Fixer Uppers because they not only share their talent but their family life too.

    I don't agree that their kids will be spoiled anymore than any other kids whose parents love them. And I also think one of the reasons I really like their show is because they are just natural, down to earth people who are theirselves whether they or on the show or not.

    Chip can be silly sometimes...but at least he does not pretend to be somebody he isn't or try to be what everybody else might want him to be.

    However, Babs, there have been some complaints about their renovations. They are a popular couple, but...........

    Funny, what some on this forum think of money and how others see it. As for me, I'd love it if they offered my wife and I a cool million or two.

    @Cody Fousnaugh There will always be people that have complaints...the Gaines sure aren't the only couple who have to go through that. I'm sure when someone had a complaint they did their best to try to fix whatever was complained about.

    Now why would they offer you and your wife some of their hard earned money Cody? Maybe they would offer you a job so you could earn some of it but if they give it away I think it would be to people who really need it.

    The same people probably wouldn't criticize a welfare family for having too many children. They can afford them, so I don't see a problem with it.

    These are probably some of the same people who criticized them for being Christians too. :(

    Hard working???? They have people that help Jo Ann with the decorating as well as help Chip.

    We really need it!
    I’d never go to work for them. We watch their Show, but aren’t big fans of it. When they annonced that their Show was going to end, we sure didn’t cry about the announcement. There were also rumors that they were having marital problems. We only see how the act on the show, not when the cameras stop rolling.

    No I don’t! I tell What I’ve read about them.
    They are a nice couple, but so are we.
    Sometimes folks only want to see the good in people. I’m both an optimist and a pessimist, especially when it comes to celebs.
    I knew I should have left this forum when I said I might. LOL

    It's really sad that there are people out there who just can't stand to see good people be happy and successful. So these same people do everything they can to destroy that happiness and success.

    Just looking at the world today, I think it's irresponsible. It is their business in the end though and I would not write anything negative on a personal site of theirs.
