“Fixer Upper” fans were thrilled when stars Chip and Joanna Gaines announced they’re expecting their fifth child together.
At the time, Joanna said Chip swore he could “already tell it’s a boy.”
And now, fans finally have their answer after the dad-to-be accidentally let the news slip during an event over the weekend.Chip Gaines/Instagram
According to People, Chip was attending a golf game for the Tim Tebow Foundation when he stopped to talk to an adorable fan who was in attendance.
He joked with the little boy, Gage, about having a little one on the way. And it wasn’t long before he let the gender slip.
Chip told the child:
“We’re just about to have another little baby, because Uncle Chip lost his mind … I can’t think of a ‘D’ name. Can you help me think of a ‘D’ name?”
Gage then asked, “A boy?” And the reality star confirmed the happy news:
“Is that a secret? I don’t know, that might not even be allowed on Twitter. It’s a little boy and I need a ‘D’ name and so far, all I could come up with was Dragon, and she’s like, ’You are not calling that baby Dragon!’ Can you help me?”
Gage’s father, Mike Spurlock, shared a video of the sweet moment to his Twitter page and Chip retweeted the clip an hour later.

Chip and Joanna have two other sons, 9-year-old Duke and 12-year-old Drake, so their new little son will fit right in with his “D” name.
Congrats to the expectant parents!
