Joanna Gaines Admits to Celebrity Crush and it’s Not Husband Chip Gaines


Fixer Upper star Joanna Gaines has long only had eyes for her hubby Chip Gaines. But that doesn’t mean that she hasn’t had a celebrity crush now and then.

And yes, one of those celebrity crushes was none other than David Letterman!

“True story, when Chip and I were dating he asked me who my celebrity crush was,” Gaines wrote on her Instagram Stories on Thursday (June 6) alongside a framed pic of the late night talk legend. “I quickly answered and said (David) Letterman. This story justifies taking this picture for sure.”

Reported on by People magazine, the mother of five showed the picture as part of a series of pictures she highlighted while taking fans on a tour around the Waco, Texas headquarters of her and Chip’s company Magnolia. And yes, she seemingly has no problem admitting the crush now, especially since her and Chip have been married for 16 years!

Heck, even Chip recently came clean about life before dating Joanna.

“I really wasn’t that guy,” Chip told People magazine in a recent interview about the years where he wanted nothing of settling down with one person. “I dated girls whose goal in life was to get married and have kids. They had it all planned out, but I was too selfish. It was about me and what I wanted to do, and I didn’t have anything tying me down.”

Of course, that all changed when he met Joanna back in 2001.

“It felt like there was this real transition,” Chip recalls. “I matured and grew up. It just kind of clicked in my brain: ‘This is going to work.’”
