    In the five years since their hit HGTV series Fixer Upper began in 2013, Chip and Joanna Gaines have accomplished quite a lot. In addition to extending their retail and construction empire to include several books, a restaurant, and a line at Target, the pair have also grown their adorable family—and they've done it all in an impressive amount of time.

    Joanna, whose birthday is April 19, 1978, turned the big 4-0 this year and celebrated with a fun cake and balloon-filled party at Magnolia Table. Chip, whose birthday is November 14, 1974, will turn 44, making the HGTV stars and entrepreneurs just four years apart in age.

    Back in 2001, the pair met when Chip stopped in at Joanna's father's Firestone Tire store in Waco, Texas. She was just 23 at the time and Chip was around 27. Though they both attended Baylor University, they never crossed paths until this run-in after graduation.

    Soon after meeting in her dad's shop, they hit it off and were married just two years later in 2003. Right around that same time, they began working on homes together and opened up the original Magnolia Market on Bosque Blvd.

    Their adorable family soon followed, with the birth of their first son Drake, now 12, in 2006 when Joanna was 27 and Chip was 31. Then came along the rest of their kiddos, Ella Rose, 11, Duke, 9, and Emmie Kay, 7. And now Chip and Jo, who have been married for 15 years, are expecting their fifth child, a baby boy, due some time this summer. Clearly these two have a lot to celebrate!
