Fixer Upper Family On The Go

While the thriving Fixer Upper couple, Chip and Joanna Gaines, are undeniably successful, some fans think they are rubbing it in everyone’s faces. Undoubtedly, impressively, these two juggle many passion projects while also raising five kids: Drake, 19, Ella, 17, Duke, 16, Emmie, 14, and Crew, 5. Admittedly, work-life balance is a myth for this family. Not only are they taking on new Fixer Upper specials, but they also run their network, Magnolia Network. Additionally, they are bringing three new TV series to Max streaming. However, they are getting some pushback for their latest special, Fixer Upper: The Lakehouse.

An insider told the National Enquirer, “Every day there was another crisis that left them at each other’s throats.” Furthermore, the source adds, “They were bickering constantly and getting little sleep.” They also shared, “It took every ounce of goodwill to stay on an even keel and get through it.” Undeniably, living and working together on so many projects while raising a family has to be difficult.
