Hero Behind The Scenes! Chips Gaines' Wife Joanna Reveals Her Motivation Behind Her Immense Success!
Throughout the century, it's believed behind every successful man there is a hand of a woman. But in our today’s story, it’s opposite. Here it's the husband who pushed her wife to follow her dreams and encouraged her to see the reality that can come out of it.
Designer Joanna Gaines, known for her popular show ' Fixer Upper' and who serves as a real motivation to every woman, has revealed her motivation behind her success. It was none other than her 'Fixer Upper' co-host and husband Chip Gaines who supported her all the way to her success and helped her in concurring her dreams.
Joanna's Hero: Her Husband
Chip Gaines who is known for his humorous nature, dedication, and creativity in the famous show 'Upper fixer' also proved to be a very supportive husband.
In an interview with USA Today on November 12, 2016, Joanna revealed,
”When you are married to a guy who takes chances every day, who loves risk and has great intuition and great business instincts- when you are married to someone like that who pushes you to dream big, you dream big.”
She further added,
”I think if I had married someone safe, I would have never even tried to open up my own business, where the chip was like,”If you have a dream, go for it.”
The best feeling for a girl is when her partner not only holds her at her best but also picks her up and holds tight at the time when she needs support. That's what Joanna received from her husband Chip, who pushed her to pursue her dreams.
Joanna and Chip's short bio:
Joanna was born in Kansas and raised in the Lone Star state whereas Chip was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico and raised in Dallas.
Both Chip and Joanna Studied in Baylor University but their paths never crossed.Luckily, Joanna started working in her Father’s Auto workshop in 2001 and Chip visited there frequently just to start a conversation with Joanna. Chip started his conversation to impress his girl saying,
"Hey, you're the girl from the commercials."
And that worked out. Joanna happened to be the only girlfriend in Chip’s life who finally turned to his wife. Chip's humor might be the quality Joanna fell for. They tied the knot later on 2003.
A flashback to October 16, 2003 when we first opened Magnolia Market. I never wore red lipstick but I was feeling bold that day and tried it. I was extremely grateful for the forty customers that came in that day to support us. Now 12 years later I'm completely blown away. THANK YOU for all the support, we feel it and are so humbled and grateful! #silobration @magnoliamarket
