WACO, Texas — As business demands cause them to travel more, taking them away from their four young children, the stars of HGTV’s “Fixer Upper,” Chip and Joanna Gaines, said Tuesday that they’ve considered leaving Waco temporarily.
Joanna clarified in a tweet on Wednesday, saying they have no plans to move. “Waco is our home, we love it and we aren’t going anywhere.”
The idea of a move came up Tuesday in small-group interviews with reporters and bloggers that were part of a KILZ Master Class and media tour of the Magnolia Market at the Silos in Waco.
Joanna spoke of her love of New York in a session with The Dallas Morning News.
People magazine reported late Tuesday that the Gaineses said in another interview session that they have considered moving from Waco for a time.
Joanna said she started framing her interest in home design while wandering into home boutiques during her off time as an intern in New York with CBS News and Dan Rather. She was a broadcast journalism major at Baylor University.
“I was so homesick I would go to these small boutiques that felt like home,” Joanna said. “When I came back this whole thing of design kind of developed in my heart as a dream.
“I wanted to create that same experience for other people, to come into my store and stay and linger,” she said. “I couldn’t afford anything. I loved the candles, fresh flowers and the music.”
