Early life and career
Joanna Gaines is born on April 19th, 1978, in Kansas, United States. She grew up in a large family with older brothers and parents who have mixed origins. Her mother is Korean, and her father is half German half Lebanese. Therefore, Joanna is quite a mix, and we can see why she is such a beauty. After she graduated from high school, Joanna enrolled in Baylor University, where she studied Communications. It is interesting that her future husband and business partner, Chip, attended the same University. However, the couple met after studies.
Joanna became more interested in the design and construction business, and she started to build her career in that direction. Firstly she founded company Magnolia Home that serves all types of design, both interior and exterior, construction business, and tools for re-decoration of the house. Besides, she opened a store under the same name.
However, it all started when Joanna met Chip, her business partner, and later husband. Together they started a TV reality series called Fixer Upper (2013) collectively, and that has launched them to the stars of the construction business. The show lasted until 2018, and during that time, brilliant duo renovated more than a hundred homes, with a budget of around $200,000. However, in 2018 Joanna officially left the show in order to focus on her business plans.
The success was followed by Joanna’s opening a Magnolia Homes, and later joining with some other companies, such as brand Anthropologie for which Joanna, this year, made an exclusive line of rugs and pillows.
Also, this year in spring, Joanna and Chip delivered a new and exciting series with HGTV, where the couple will be in service of chief creative officers, and the release of first episodes will happen in 2020. The series will be a part of Discovery Networks, and it will include the old events from the Fixer Upper series.
Joanna’s own life is entirely connected with her career, as it turns out that her business partner will become a life partner too. Joanna and Chip met at Joanna’s father’s car store, where Chip was a regular customer, and after he saw Joanna, he became an official regular. Chip intensively went to the store until he finally met her there. In 2001 they finally started dating, and after a couple of years, in 2003, the couple said “yes” in a private ceremony. Only after one month of marriage life, they did their home renovation together, and eventually, they started their business. Soon after that, Magnolia Market, first Joanna’s store opened.
Joanna and Chip are madly in love, and they show it in public, and everywhere they go. The main proof of their crazy love is the five children they have together. As being a big family, they enjoy spending time in nature and doing sports.
