“Fixer Upper” stars Chip and Joanna Gaines just welcomed their fifth child in June, but dad already seems to be itching for another one.

The reality star’s youngest child, Crew Gaines, joined the family on June 23. He’s a whopping eight years younger than the second-youngest, Emmie Kay.

That’s why Chip said they may just have to add one more. He told People:

“I think we have to have another one because I’m particular about the only child thing. Crew needs a sister to manage this whole thing out. Don’t be surprised if No. 6 is in the cards!”

However, wife Joanna may not be quite on the same page. The mom said her latest pregnancy was definitely her most difficult.

Joanna told People:

“When I first got pregnant I kept telling everyone at the office, ‘Guys, I am my best self when I’m pregnant.’ And then, for whatever reason, I was limping into work and I couldn’t breathe. At 40, it’s definitely a little different.”

But Joanna is okay with life being a little challenging sometimes, she said:

“That’s what I love about life. It’s these surprises, and at first you sit there and go, ‘How does that fit?’ And now that it’s all happened I can’t imagine life any other way. I’ve never been so happy.”

Regardless of if they have a sixth child or not, the couple certainly has their hands full.

They’re already busy raising 13-year-old Drake Gaines, 11-year-old Ella Rose Gaines, 10-year-old Duke Gaines, 8-year-old Emmie Kay Gaines, and now baby Crew.

No word if the couple is actually trying to conceive another child — or if it’s just Chip’s wishful thinking.
