Chip and Joanna Gaines might be fixing up a new nursery sometime soon: the couple shared they’re expecting baby number five on Tuesday night. Chip Gaines put the announcement out to his Instagram followers: “Gaines party of 7.. (If you’re still confused.. WE ARE PREGNANT),” tagging wife Joanna. The photo featured them in similar gray sweaters, with Chip sporting a fake baby bump while Joanna showed hers.

Within an hour, the post had already garnered more than 500,000 likes. The announcement was made right after the first Fixer Upper of the year aired—after Chip, 43, spent the day teasing some big news on Twitter. The episode featured Joanna’s younger sister, who has five kids (plus one on the way as well!) and is moving back to Waco, according to an Instagram post yesterday.

The Gaines couple is already parents to four kids (Drake, Ella, Duke, and Emme). Joanna, 39, might have been teasing the news on her own social accounts to unsuspecting fans. She posted an Instagram caption on Monday that read (emphasis and extrapolation all our own): “New year, new hope… Be expectant. There is just something about fresh faith and unwavering trust that brings life to our souls. May this be your best year yet.”

If we know anything about the wildly popular reality stars, who will end their show after this season, it’s that the Internet will be watching every step along the way.
