Late last month, "Fixer Upper" couple Chip and Joanna Gaines announced that they were ending their HGTV show. Now comes word that they have sold their beloved farmhouse, which was featured in nearly every episode of their show.
It turns out, that's not accurate.
The Blast reported that the couple handed the deed to their Waco, Texas, property over to another couple. But Brock Murphy, the Gaines' director of PR for their Magnolia businesses, countered quickly, saying in a statement:
"Any report that Chip and Joanna have sold their farmhouse is completely untrue. They have not sold their home and they do not have any plans to do so. The Gaines recently moved their property line to match their fence line—this is not uncommon and is a matter of public record—which is likely what triggered this false report."
Glad that's all cleared up! The six-bedroom, two-bathroom, 2,729-sq.-ft. home is incredible, but it wasn't that way when Chip and Joanna bought the home in 2012. It was, naturally, a fixer upper. Before and after images of the home are featured on Joanna's blog.
The duo spent a year and a half fixing up the once-dilapidated home to their liking.
"We are loving farm life and all the animals that call it their home too. It’s been quite an adventure!" Joanna wrote in 2014 on her blog.
Speaking to People magazine, Chip said, "Nothing has come easy. We've worked so hard to have this beautiful family and this farm—it really does seem like the American dream you heard about growing up."
Their children and their business is the top priority, he said.
"Jo and I both made a commitment pretty early on that the two of us are the most important variable," he said. "If we can figure out how to be right as a couple, then obviously we a have a lot better opportunity to be right for our kids."
