Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines star on an HGTV program about renovating homes.
The same can be said about Tarek El Moussa and Christina El Moussa.
And we all know what happened to their marriage, don’t we?
Might the same fate befall Chip and Joanna?
Yes, the husband and wife come across as totally and completely in smitten with each other; they are as lovey dovey on air as any twosome on television.
But can any viewer truly say he or she knows these two well? Or at all?
Moreover, all know how reality TV impacts most couples out there (Spoiler Alert: not positively) and Chris Pratt just announced his separation from Anna Faris.
So, really, who the heck knows anymore?!? No famous couple is safe, that’s for certain.
Over the weekend, a Twitter user wrote that she felt “sick” over chatter that Chip and Joanna were headed for divorce, prompting the father of four to respond to this concern with a few simple words.
However, they were the right, comforting words.
“Won’t ever happen.. you can take that to the bank!” Gaines Tweeted, adding that Joanna is the “#loveOfMyLife.”
The unofficial king and queen of home improvement have been married since 2003.
They have four children together, ages six to 11, all of whom are often featured on Fixer Upper at home, enjoying life on the family farm with their smiling parents.
The series, which combines Chip’s construction skills with Joanna’s eye for interior design, is in its fourth season and consistently rates as one of HGTV’s most popular shows.
Yes, this is due in part to viewer fascination with home renovation… but also to the couple’s fun and unique chemistry.
Chip is a goofball. Joanna frequently makes fun of him. And their romance seems as real and as easy as it gets.
But Gaines did tell People Magazine at one point that he and Joanna have faced challenges in the past, just like any married people.
“Nothing has come easy,” he explained in February, adding at the time:
“We’ve worked so hard to have this beautiful family and this farm – it really does seem like the American dream you heard about growing up…
“Jo and I really have created boundaries to some extent for one another and it just helps us both flourish.
“I am her biggest cheerleader when it comes to the things that she’s rocking and rolling in and vice versa in my category.
“Just encourage one another’s strengths and not be so particular that you constantly butt heads over it.”
And, look, if these two can overcome Chip’s man bun, they can overcome any obstacle.
While Chip’s personal life appears to be taking place without a hitch, he’s run into a few professional problems of late.
In April, Gaines was sued by his former Magnolia Real Estate partners for more than $1 million, as they claim he forced them to sell their stakes in the company before it took way off as a result of Fixer Upper.
Lawyers for the reality star have labeled the lawsuit as “meritless.”
Said Joanna several weeks ago, amidst talk that she was leaving the series:
“At this point in our career we can honestly say, we’ve heard it all – from reports of us moving our family to Vegas to us having more or less children than we actually have.
“So remember, you can’t believe everything you read.”
Unless it comes from Chip or Joanna themselves, that is!
We totally believe Joanna is the love of Chip’s life and no one will convince us otherwise!
