It's a -- ! Chip Gaines' tweets reveal gender of 'Fixer Upper' couple's fifth child

Chip Gaines is a good follow on Twitter. He jokes a lot and he drops tips. And on Wednesday, he dropped the news that he and his wife Joanna Gaines will be having a baby boy.

The stars of Fixer Upper are getting ready to welcome their fifth child to join Drake, Duke, Ella and Emmie Kay.

In a pretty sweet gender reveal, Chip tweeted out a video of his chat with a child named Gage that he met during an event for the Tim Tebow Foundation. In the video, he tells Gage that they're having another baby "because Uncle Chip lost his mind." Then he asked Gage to help him think of a "D name."

If that wasn't enough of a clue if you know the names of their other children, Chip didn't demur when Gage asked if it's a boy!

"Is that a secret? I don't know. That might not even be allowed on Twitter," Chip said and then confirmed what Gage said. "You better keep that to yourself, dude. It's a little boy ... So far, all I can come up with is Dragon."

Gage got a big laugh out of that one. Joanna probably did, too.

Twitter had some fun, offering up names that begin with the preferred letter. Gage even chipped in, suggesting "Duval."

The couple announced that they were expecting a child in January.

The Gaineses always have been able to integrate the family into Fixer Upper. No word on how the baby will be worked into their newest show, Fixer Upper: Behind the Design, which will premiere on April 10.
