Chip and Joanna Gaines are the married home improvement duo that has risen to design fame with their hit HGTV TV show Fixer Upper, a homewares line at Target, an uber-popular shopping store Magnolia Market, a Magnolia restaurant, as well as countless cookbooks and television appearances, and they are in the process of creating their very own TV network Mic Drop, on top of being recently named as Time Magazine’s Most 100 Influential People in the World.
When this power couple isn’t fixing it up with a home improvement, excellent food, and changing the world one piece of wall art at a time — they are busy with their family, especially since Joanna recently gave birth to the couple’s fifth child, a baby boy they named Crew. And what a growing “crew” they have!
It’s no wonder so many Hollywood A-Listers are just as addicted to this reigning King and Queen of home improvement as we are! Here are 30 Celebs that adore this talented duo.
1. Taylor Swift
Country-pop princess turned global sensation Taylor Swift has been vocal that she is a huge fan of Chip and Jo’s show. With a massive following of her own “Swifties” who consider her a design icon, this is a big deal for Chip and Joanna. Taylor Swift is known for dropping a video on YouTube and amassing millions of views in hours, so she’ll no doubt send a lot of that love the Gaines’ way.
She also gets to see the Gaines in person, like at the recent Time 100 Most Influential people party. Reports say that Joanna and Chip were seen talking to Taylor for at least some of the party! Maybe she’ll even write the theme song for some of their new network TV shows.
Recording artist Ciara recently attended an intensive business program at Harvard earlier this year, and Joanna and Chip were her classmates. That totally makes them BFFs. We’d love to see what those study sessions looked like!
It’s clear that the Gaines’ have put their business skills to use, building a mega-empire. In addition to the TV presence, as mentioned, they have several retail lines, cookbooks, and an eatery that’s said to be “the most Instagrammed place in Texas,” getting more views than even the Alamo! Maybe the Gaines’ and Ciara will collaborate on a business venture in the future?
It’s a fantastic thing when a social media influencer shares your brand, and even better when they’re actually a fan! Brooklyn Decker, model, actress, and Instagram celebrity, follows Joanna Gaines on Instagram. Talk about beauty loving beauty!
Brooklyn Decker and husband Andy Roddick recently purchased a sprawling mansion in Austin, Texas. With so much space to work with, they will most likely need some help with renovating. Luckily they’re pretty close to Chip and Joanna Gaines’ neck of the woods! Perhaps Brooklyn Decker is getting some design inspiration from Joanna Gaines’s beautiful aesthetics and great content on Instagram.
Country sensation Miranda Lambert also follows the Gaines’ Instagram page and wished Chip and Joanna congratulations on their newest addition, baby Crew. We’d love to hear Miranda singing Happy Birthday to Crew on his next birthday!
Miranda is also a native Texan, so her style is pretty similar to Chip and Joanna Gaines. This southern belle could definitely get along well with the Waco couple. We’d love to see Miranda Lambert featured on the Gaines’ upcoming TV channel. She could spend some time with the Gaines family on their beautiful farm and get some excellent decorating tips from the couple!
Julianne Moore may be primarily known as an actress, but she’s also a fan of Chip & Joanna. She was really insistent on getting a picture with the couple at the Time 100 awards, and Chip is seen giving her a small kiss in the picture! Talk about being Influenced!
The actress is probably a big fan of the Gaines’ tv show Fixer Upper. She’s also a Southern Belle ailing from North Carolina. We have a feeling that Julianne Moore and the Gaines’ would have a great time together on the farm! Hopefully, we will see an Instagram post or two featuring Julianne Moore and Chip and Joanna Gaines.
Leslie Jones is one of the funniest females on Saturday Night Live, so it’s a huge honor that she loves Chip’s jokes! They may be dad jokes, but that’s alright with Leslie; who is a huge fan of Fixer Upper— she’ll overlook the lack of comedy for what the Gaines’ make up for in fun and knowledge. Maybe she can even guest star on a new episode on the new network they’re building.
Or better yet, we may see Chip and Joanna Gaines in an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live! They could also make it big in a flashy Hollywood movie starring Ms. Leslie Jones.
Even Olympic Champion Michael Phelps can’t resist a little Fixer Upper. Michael and his wife Nicole recently publicly congratulated Joanna and Chip on their newest son, Crew.
With all the medals Phelps has, it’s hard to imagine him doing anything but working out and hitting the pool, but we’re happy that HGTV and the Gaines have given Phelps a way to stop bouncing about and spend some quiet quality time with family. It would be great to see the Gaines family and the Phelps crew get together for some fun on the farm!
Drew Barrymore has her own homeware line, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that the entrepreneur and actress follows Joanna Gaines on Instagram. We would love to see some kind of collaboration between the two. We are so ready to see the “Drew Gaines Collection” — maybe we can work on a better name!
Drew Barrymore has a chill, peaceful aura that would work so well with Chip and Joanna Gaines’ style. Their rustic aesthetic plus Drew Barrymore’s flower child vibes are a perfect match! In addition to a Drew Barrymore and Gaines homeware collaboration, Joanna Gaines could pair up with Drew to create her own beauty line! Get ready for Magnolia Beauty.
Ryan Reynolds, known for his movies like Deadpool and The Engagement, as well as for being married to celebrity wife Blake Lively known for Gossip Girl, and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, among other things, is obsessed with the Gaines family via twitter.
Recently, he tweeted “Current goal: Move family to Waco. Infiltrate the lives of @TheMagnoliaMom and @chippergaines. Eat stuff. Build stuff. Smash stuff.” We couldn’t have said it any better, Ryan! We just know that Ryan and Blake would fit in well with the whole Gaines crew. Now that’s a show we would love to watch.
Olympic figure-skating champion Johnny Weir has tweeted his affection to Chip, Joanna, and HGTV. This HGTV enthusiast stays busy figure-skating and commentating on the Olympic games, but during his free time, you will likely find him watching HGTV. He once shared, “I watch a lot of @hgtv when I can and I think Joanna and Chip are so exquisite. Go Texas!”
What a compliment from a fashion and style icon! Plus, it’s nice that he’s rooting for the entire state of Texas, and all because of Joanna & Chip. We’d love to see Johnny Weir get Chip and Joanna out on the ice.
Jenna Bush Hager, best known for being a daughter to United States President George W. Bush, is known publicly for many things– but most of all for being a huge Chip and Joanna Gaines fan. She was thrilled last year when she got to take a trip to her home state of Texas to visit Joanna in her own kitchen and sample recipes from her new book, “Magnolia Table.”
When asked about her love for the famous couple, Jenna said that she’s a huge fan– but not as much as her mother, former First Lady Laura Bush, who cried at the very last “Fixer Upper” episode! Talk about a Presidential win!
Tim Tebow isn’t just famous for his football and his faith— he actually is a triple F, having once appeared in an episode of Fixer Upper! He was there helping the couple with a final reveal. Faith. Football. Fixer Upper. Final. I think we’re onto something here!
As a Florida native, Tim Tebow knows a lot about southern aesthetics. He’s also a bit of a real estate mogul, owning several properties in Jacksonville, Florida. Tim could ask Chip and Joanna Gaines for help decorating his new digs! We think Tim Tebow and his new fiancee would love the Gaines’ signature style in their home.
Reese Witherspoon is a definite fan of the Gaines, especially of Joanna. Joanna stepped out for her first major public appearance just three months after giving birth to baby Crew, to surprise Reese at an event held at Magnolia Market for the actress’s new book, Whiskey in a Teacup, which was hosted by Jenna Bush Hager. The Fixer Upper alum unexpectedly stepped on stage to introduce and welcome Reese at the event. Joanna told media she hadn’t worn heels in a while due to the baby, but “if there’s anyone who can get me in a dress and heels, it’s Reese Witherspoon.”
The three charming southern ladies, Reece, Joanna, and Jenna, celebrated the book signing event with a photo together in front of three rusty silos. The Legally Blonde star followed the event up by posting the picture on Twitter and tweeting, “Yesterday was a DREAM! Had the best day ever at @magnolia Silos! Thank you @joannagaines and @jennabhager for a beautiful welcome to Waco!”. Joanna also posted the southern ladies’ picture and tweeted, “Fun night with these beautiful ladies. What an honor to host @reesewitherspoon for her #whiskeyinateacup book tour tonight at the Silos with @jennabhager” Now y’all, that’s celebrity adoration right there!
JJ Watt, Houston Texans football star, loves fellow Texans Chip and Jo so much that he sent them published well wishes when the duo announced that they’d be retiring from Fixer Upper. Those Texans really do stick together!
JJ Watt is a native of Wisconsin, but since he has played for the Houston Texans for nearly ten years, it’s safe to say he’s now officially a Texas man. We can definitely see him hanging out with the Gaines family and teaching them a few football plays. JJ Watt and the Gaines’ would have a great time on their family farm!
Living legend, Cher, loves her some Chip, Joanna and Fixer Upper. Cher tweeted that one of the Fixer Upper episodes brought back great memories of a house from her past. The award-winning grammy singer wrote, “#FIXERUPPER Reminds me a Burleson Aunt Did, Ethyel, Mammaw&Pa. House turned in2 restau. but [fire emoji] Down. Went back &Old man Said’Cherilyn, is that U.” Chip and HGTV both responded, saying he was “honored” and that they were “glad the show is inspiring great memories!”. The HGTV couple also responded saying they both not only love Cher, but that she was the root of many of their own fond memories replying, “love you Cher! The memories. Her folks grew up on sonny and Cher! And we grew up on ‘if I could turn back time.”
Cher admits that every now and then, she likes to follow along with the Gaines’ lives raising five kids and check in on them. Earlier this year, the legendary singer tweeted, “Once in a while, I like to check in, & see what’s happening With Chip, Joanna & Kids’. Cher followed the tweet up with a smiling emoji.surrounded by hearts and the hashtag #FixerUpper. Chip affectionately responded to the music icon’s tweet, referring to her as ‘Auntie Cher.’ He wrote, “Well Auntie Cher, Kids are doing great! A little cold going around, but you know how it is. Send everyone our love! -the Gaines clan”. Even fans loved the sweet exchange between these vastly different stars!
Mark Duplass, is an actor and producer best known for playing Pete in the TV series “The League” would pick Joanna and Chip as two of his Fantasy Football MVPs for sure! Recently, Duplass tweeted about how heaven must be a dark room with HGTV shows playing on repeat. For sure, Mark, for sure!
Mark Duplass could work with Chip and Joanna Gaines in the future, whether it be on their upcoming TV network or in a movie he’s producing. It would be interesting to see this indie star change things up and do something different. He went to college in Texas, so we know he’ll fit right in with the Gaines’.
She’s the music icon, the dancer, the pop diva, and the movie mogul — but to everyone else, she’ll always be “Jenny from the block,” and she loves having a comfortable home, so it’s no surprise that Jennifer Lopez loves Chip and Joanna Gaines! Recently, J.Lo and boyfriend A-Rod have met with Chip and Joanna, and we can’t wait to see how their dream collaboration turns out!
Joanna and J. Lo’s budding new friendship could be seen as the two were spotted on the beach together in Malibu, checking out J. Lo’s property, and in a photo that Chip posted on Instagram of the two couples, captioned “What’s going on?!? This like a Twilight Zone of hot people, then there’s me, looking as usual… disheveled” — Hopefully J. Lo and A. Rod will have as much of an influence on Chip’s fashion style as he has had on their home.
As to how they met? J. Lo was gushing about Joanna on an episode of Ellen Degeneres’ talk show, and A-Rod gave Lopez a FaceTime Meeting with Joanna for her 2nd anniversary! Clearly, these two are becoming fast BFFs, and we can’t wait to start calling them “Jo & J. Lo!”
Nick Offerman, like his character on Parks and Recreation, loves craftsmanship– so much so that he started a show with Amy Poehler celebrating local homemakers called “Making It.”
When Nick and wife Megan Mullally, star of TV show Will and Grace had a friend trying to get a grant from an organization run by the duo, she also tweeted her support for Chip and Jo. Offerman tweeted about Chip & Joanna “I admire your gumption, your elbow grease, and your martial tenacity, not to mention your commitment to ship-lap. Please give our pal your consideration, and good Lord, you should taste her stuffing. Not a euphemism.” Not only did he get Chip’s attention, but the Gaines are apparently big fans of Offerman/Mullally too, and their whole office was geeking out!
Kate Hudson, daughter of Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell and big-time screen star in her own right is reportedly a big fan of Fixer Upper and the Gaines power couple. This megastar likes to post Instagram stories during nights when she watches Fixer Upper marathons.
No doubt Kate, the star of “How to Lose a Guy in 10 days” could star in “How to Spend 10 Days Watching HGTV.” Kate Hudson owns an athletic apparel company, but maybe in the future, she’ll branch out and start a home furnishings or cookware brand. She could even enter the world of food with a cookbook!
Steve Forbes is not only the editor-and-chief of Forbes magazine and a former Presidential candidate, but he’s also a big fan of Fixer Upper, which he enjoys watching with his daughter Sabrina. It’s interesting to think that Chip and Joanna’s budget-friendly fixes can appeal to one of the richest men on the planet, but apparently, anything is possible.
It speaks to how broad of an appeal Chip and Joanna Gaines have. Their easygoing personalities and hardworking attitudes make them relatable and enjoyable to watch. Even the most wealthy, successful people like to kick back, relax, and watch a fun, entertaining TV show.
Seth Rogen is known for being a really funny comedian and actor, who’s maybe prone to exaggeration in some of his films like “Knocked Up” or “The Interview,” but he wasn’t exaggerating when he said that he watches HGTV for 179 hours straight. Or was he?
We love Seth & Chip and Joanna so we’d like to imagine them all hanging out around the coffee table, eating snacks and telling jokes. That is if Chip will let anyone else get a laugh in edgewise! It would also be fun to see Seth Rogen spend a day with the Gaines’ on a renovation to see how he would do. We can imagine it being quite a funny experience.
Kurt Sutter, the husband of Katey Segal and creator of Sons of Anarchy, publicly invited Chip and Joanna to hang out on a double date! We wonder where they went and what they ordered for dinner. Maybe next time he can go over to the Gaines home and try some of Joanna’s famous biscuits.
Katey Segal is known for her acting roles on Married with Children, Futurama, and Sons of Anarchy, to name a few. She’s also an accomplished singer. Perhaps she and Kurt could invite Chip and Joanna Gaines out for a fun, wild night of karaoke?
Scott Foley may be best known for being a star of TV’s Scandal, but truthfully he’d much rather be at home with family on the couch watching HGTV. He’ll often tweet that he’s currently on set but can’t wait to get to the next episode of Fixer Upper or add his own commentary to each episode via Twitter.
Scott Foley seems like a great guy who would get along well with Chip and Joanna Gaines. He could take his family for a visit to Magnolia Farms. We can totally see him and Chip hanging out on the farm and even working on a renovation project.
Phoebe Robinson is a 2 Dope Queens actress and loves to follow Joanna on Instagram! There’s nothing Doper than that! She’s not only an accomplished actress and comedienne, but Phoebe Robinson is also a fan of home decor.
Phoebe is a fan of wearing bright, flashy clothing, and that aesthetic must blend in with her home decor tastes. We would love to see how her vibe gels with the decorating style of Joanna Gaines. They would definitely create some interior design magic together! We might just see a 2 Dope Queens and Fixer Upper collaboration in the future.
Fellow HGTV stars the Property Brothers not only star on the same network as Chip and Joanna Gaines, but they are also fans of the couple. Twins Drew, and Jonathan Scott got their start on HGTV with their eponymous show in 2011. They were around to witness the beginning of the Fixer Upper show in 2013.
When Fixer Upper ended in April 2018, the Property Brothers were full of love and support for Chip and Joanna Gaines. Drew posted a tweet saying “It’s been a fun run! Thanks @joannagaines & @chipgaines for inspiring a lot of families!” Jonathan said, “Wow how time flies when you’re having fun. I remember when we watched your first episode and told everybody Fixer Upper is gonna be a hit. You guys have inspired so many and will continue to do so. Best wishes in the future @chipgaines and @joannagaines 🙂 #fixerupper“
Kearran Giovanni isn’t just known for being the star of Major Crimes on NBC; she’s making a splash this pilot season with some other soon-to-be NBC sensations. When she’s not trying to land another big show deal, she loves to watch her favorite show — Fixer Upper.
Kearran Giovanni was raised in Katy, Texas, so she’s a southern belle! She would definitely get along well with Chip and Joanna Gaines. Perhaps in the future, she’ll branch out into other projects like home decor, design, cooking, or another creative venture. If that happens, she can learn a lot from the Gaines’!
If you’re a Gossip Girl fan– you’ll love this news: Blake Lively not only adores Fixer Upper, she’s also friendly with the Gaines family. Could Joanna be the Blair to her Serena? We covered Blake Lively’s husband, Ryan Reynolds, in #9 on our list — but she’s arguably an even bigger Gaines family fan. She knows she loves them– XOXO.
Blake Lively used to have her own lifestyle brand called Preserve. The aesthetic for Preserve was very close to the Gaines’ style so that she would get along with the couple fabulously. She is also passionate about food and cooking, so Blake Lively may end up taking a trip to Magnolia Market in the future!
Hilary Duff is the younger of the two Duff sisters, as well as the star of many TV shows and movies, best known for being Lizzie McGuire in the Disney show series of the same name– but Hillary is also known for her exceptional taste.
Therefore, it shouldn’t be a surprise that she’s a big fan of Magnolia on Instagram, primarily the farmhouse wares and minimalist decor that Joanna Gaines is famous for. Additionally, Hilary is from Houston TX, so she’s basically a neighbor of Chip & Joanna’s home in Waco! Hilary Duff and her children would have a great time on the farm with the whole Gaines crew.
Chrissy Teigen is married to singer-songwriter John Legend, and mom to Luna and Miles, but she makes waves of her own as a model, TV personality, and most recently as a cookbook author. That’s why it should be no surprise that she loves home and food television shows, most notably anything starring Joanna Gaines.
It’s no secret that Chrissy Teigen is a fan of many other HGTV shows, including the Property Brothers. We can see her expanding her empire in the future to include home decor and even fashion in addition to her cookbooks. It would be great to see Chrissy Teigen sit down with Joanna Gaines to get some insight on how to break into the home goods market.
“I’m With Her” is something that many say when supporting Hillary, the former First Lady married to President Bill Clinton as well as being a Senator, Secretary of State, and Presidential Candidate herself, but it’s probably something that Hillary says when referring to Joanna Gaines. In her recent memoir entitled “What Happened,” Clinton writes about what happened when she left her post as Secretary of State after a four-year term. “I surrounded myself with friends and caught up on some of the shows that people have been telling me about for years, as well as a lot of HGTV,” — she continued “I believe this is what some call ‘self-care,’ it turns out, it’s pretty great.”
She’s also previously praised HGTV in interviews, saying that she loves the shows that have beginnings, middle, and happy endings. “People buy the house they end up loving, the amazing redo works out perfectly. In the real world, I know that’s not the case, but it relaxes me.”
We hear you, Hillary, and that’s why HGTV, and Chip and Joanna Gaines have racked up so many endorsements, not only from the celebrities listed above, but from the millions of Americans who tune in every day to watch Fixer Upper and the other soothing and inoffensive HGTV shows, not only at home, but in hospitals, waiting rooms, doctor’s offices, nail salons, bars, and pizza shops. The positive programming and family friendliness is something we could all use a little more of, and we have the Gaines’ to thank for that!
