Baby alert! On Tuesday, Chip and Joanna Gaines, hosts of HGTV's Fixer Upper, took to Instagram to announce that they're expecting their fifth child together, according to People. Of course, fans of the home improvement couple went wild on social media after hearing the news. Here are just some of the funniest reactions to Joanna Gaines' pregnancy so far.

The Gaineses' pregnancy announcement came late Tuesday night, after Chip Gaines posted a photo to Instagram showing the design pair both wearing gray sweaters, standing in what seems to be a family room at home. In the photo, Joanna is cradling her husband's fake baby bump while showing off her own growing belly. Chip wrote in the caption, along with the image, according to People,

Fans of the veteran HGTV stars, who are already parents to four kids, were definitely not confused by Chip's baby news. In fact, many Fixer Upper die-hards couldn't contain their excitement that the Gaineses are expecting another child. To be honest, a lot of the social media reactions to Joanna Gaines' pregnancy are downright funny, which seems appropriate for the way the couple revealed the news in the first place.

It should come as no surprise to Fixer Upper's loyal fan base that the Gaineses are expecting a fifth child. (They are already parents to Drake, 12, Ella, 11, Duke, 9, and Emmie Kay, 7.) Back in October, husband Chip told ABC News that he wanted more kids, and couldn't wait to try to conceive once their popular HGTV show ended its run.

The baby news also didn't come out of nowhere on Tuesday. Chip had dropped hints about the pregnancy on social media before and during Tuesday night's episode of Fixer Upper, according to USA Today. One of his tweets included a clip from the show that mentioned pickles, ice cream, and the number five, along with the message, "We've got BIG news to share."

Chip wasn't the only one to offer hints. His wife, Joanna, also posted a cryptic, yet revealing message to Instagram on Monday, along with an images of two benches in front of a body of water. The message read, according to People,

The pregnancy announcement is also welcome news for fans reeling over the fact that Fixer Upper will soon come to an end. In late September, the Texas-based home improvement couple announced that the fifth season of Fixer Upper will be its last. One source told US Weekly that the couple planned to end the series because of security concerns, while another source claimed that the Gaineses worried the home renovation show would take a toll on their relationship.

That source told US Weekly back in November,

But fans shouldn't fret — not completely. Joanna Gaines will be back on HGTV with her spin-off series, Fixer Upper: Behind The Design,  according to People. The show will air shortly after the final season of Fixer Upper begins airing. In the meantime, congratulations to the happy family!
