We love the work Fixer Upper couple Chip and Joanna Gaines do, but in addition to making beautiful homes for others, they also happen to have the most gorgeous farmhouse. Situated in Waco, TX, the couple and their four children seem perfectly settled, but they might not be there for long.
In an interview with People, the pair revealed they have definitely considered uprooting the family.
Chip's ideal location: Las Vegas! "I think the kids would really appreciate it," he said. We did not see that coming! But Joanna has another city in mind. "New York City," she told reporters, is her choice. "I think it would be fun."
“Although, you know, it’s so funny," Chip said, "because anytime we go to the Big City--any big city really, but New York specifically--and you see these beautiful little families and they are walking their one little baby, two max, and I’m like, 'What would we do with four kids?' You know, you would lose at least one of those kids every time you walked down to the store and back."
One of the benefits of their Texas home is certainly all the space. Their 1,700-square-foot home sits on 40 acres, and you can see the entire family enjoy that room--whether it's working with the farm animals or hosting large parties--during the TV show.
And they need to consider their kids. Chip and Joanna have four young children: Drake, 11, Ella, 9, Duke, 8, and Emmie, 6.
“We’ve got four young babies and so the farther we get from home, it makes it almost impossible for us to figure out how to keep everything in balance or in line,” Chip said.
As much appeal as other cities hold, it looks like Chip and Joanna are staying put in the "Lone Star State"--at least for now.
“Waco is our meet in the middle spot: half big city, half tropical--maybe not. We talk about it. We’ve been to Kansas City a lot recently and have just fallen in love with that community,” Chip added. “Salt Lake, every time we go there it just kind of really inspires us, obviously New York City for Jo. There are a few cities across the country that we would possibly consider if Waco did not work out.”
Right now, we like them in Texas. But no matter where they go, we're sure they'd make it work.
