Joanna And Her Married Life With Her Chip Gaines:

Joanna is married to her husband and her professional partner Chip Gaines since the year 2003. The couple has the privilege to parent four adorable children together and the kids the couple share has played a pivotal role in making Chip and Joanna's marital bond even stronger.

The two first met back in 2001, and for those who did not know, the two even attended the same university, Baylor University.

Joanna revealed that Chip was the one to hit off as the two met at Joanna's father's automotive shop. Joanna explained,

“We met in the waiting area and hit it off immediately. He was genuinely engaging and he had such a sincere smile.”

However, being the funny man that Chip is, he disagreed to that and stated that he had seen her before they met in person. He elaborated his claims by saying he saw Joanna in a photograph hung at the counter of Joanna's father automotive shop. In his words,

“Her dad made the mistake of putting a pic of their family [including ‘Jojo’] behind the counter at his [automotive] shop. I knew I’d marry her one day just by the picture on the wall.” 

But despite sharing a love relationship and a marital life so intense, the two state that they are "polar opposites" from one another.

Here is a video where the two look back at the journey of their relationship, and it shall shed more light to the statement above.

But there were also the rumors that the two were struggling to keep their relationship intact and the relationship indeed was rocked.

Joanna provided a statement that adds more fuel to the fire.

“If you give Chip a boundary, he’s going break that boundary,”

She also added, 

“If you give him a rule, he’s not going to follow it. If you tell him he can’t go past this line, he dips his toe over it.”

However, the two who have worked together and fixed other's houses seem to have fixed theirs too as the social posts of Joanna suggest.

Nice to know that the love between them is getting stronger with time!

And to answer all your questions regarding Joanna's ethnicity, in an interview, when she was asked about her ethnicity, she answered,

I love hearing all the guesses- Although I did play Pocahontas in high school, I am not Native American. My father is half Lebanese/half German and my mother is full Korean.

The two have seemingly worked together to fix and renovate several houses, and as a result, she has been able to earn a good sum of money as her net worth of a million shows.
