Since Chip and Joanna Gaines don’t keep a TV in their home, their kids may not quite realize just how much America is currently obsessed with their parents. But that doesn’t mean the entrepreneurial careers of their parents haven’t rubbed off on them. The couple runs a small empire of creative ventures out of Waco, Texas: their TV show ‘Fixer Upper,’ on HGTV; their precious brick-and-mortar (and online!) shop, Magnolia Market; a magazine; a real estate business; and the project we’re currently drooling over, a soon-to-be breakfast place.
When we saw the girls, Emmie and Ella, following Joanna’s lead in getting their house ready for the holiday season, we knew this was no average decorating situation. And the boys, Duke and Drake, are pretty handy to have around too; we noticed them tag-teaming with dad at work last year. Here, five photos proving these kids—and their projects—might be worth keeping an eye on. (And not because they’re stirring up trouble!)
