There's something so completely refreshing about seeing real, down to earth people on television, doing what they love. Especially considering all the stress that comes with becoming a public person, managing to stay relatively sane and put together while in the spotlight is a pretty big accomplishment. Add in the task of raising kids along the way, and you've got yourself some serious parenting superstars. Celebrities such as Chrissy Teigen, Kourtney Kardashian, and more are all excellent examples of this. So are HGTV stars, Chip and Joanna Gaines, whose cutest kid Instagrams prove that it's totally possible to be a working parent, as long as you have the proper support along the way.
Since the premiere of their hit HGTV show, Fixer Upper, in 2013, the Gaines have basically taken over the home improvement scene, enchanting the world with their witty banter, gorgeous designs, and adorable kids. The Gaines' children, Emmie, 6, Duke, 8, Ella, 9, and Drake, 11, sometimes make appearances on their television show, although the couple has said that they "want to give them the chance to have a normal childhood." Nevertheless, the couple does regularly post photos of their children on their respective Instagram accounts, most of which are seriously adorable.
