Chip made the announcement in a video he shared on Twitter Wednesday. The Fixer Upper star loved it, musing that he could be called Deke and the name "feels right".

In typical Chip fashion, Gaines jokes with Gage that he and his wife are about to have their fifth child - because "Uncle Chip has lost his mind". This is important: I can't think of a "D" name.

Gaines tweeted, "Alright, alright...if we're going to announce the gender of our 5th child".


Both Chip and lovely Joanna were part of an fantastic weekend supporting the Tim Tebow Foundation that included a gala and celebrity golf classic. In keeping with a tradition, they're looking for a name starts with a "D" for the new baby. "It might as well come from my new friend #Gage", he tweeted along with the video. "I don't know. That might not even be allowed on Twitter", the HGTV star claimed.

Chip adds that the only D name for a boy that he can come up with is "Dragon", which sends Gage into a giggling fit.

Chip and Joanna are already the proud parents to to daughters Emmie Kay, 7, and Ella, 11, as well as sons Duke, 9, and Drake, 12. "[Joanna was] like, 'You are not calling that baby Dragon!'"


When Joanna posted a video of her sonogram her hubby at the time was certain he knew the sex of their fifth child. Since then, the expectant mom has been sharing photos of her baby bump via social media.

Gage is a bit of a hometown celebrity himself in Baker County, Action News Jax reports.

The happy spouses have been starring on Fixer Upper since 2013.
