Chip and Joanna Gaines are the king and queen of Waco, Texas, but are they ready to make a move?
The Fixer Upper stars recently revealed that they would consider leaving Texas, at least for a period of time. During a media tour of the Magnolia Market at the Silos in Waco on Tuesday, the couple opened up about where they would consider relocating to.
What are your guesses? Think they would move to a big city or stay in a small town?
The couple has a lot to consider before even thinking about a potential move. “We’ve got four young babies and so the farther we get from home, it makes it almost impossible for us to figure out how to keep everything in balance or in line,” Chip told PEOPLE.
Although “the lone star state” has been home to the Gaines’ family for quite some time, they are always up for an adventure. But, the big question is…where would they move to?
My favorite thing about our media tour was coming to this CBS building for an interview- this was the same exact building I interned at while living in New York 16 years ago when I was interested in broadcast journalism. It was during my time in this big city that my heart shifted and I wanted to open a boutique like the ones I loved to go to in NY. Every time I stepped into one of these shops, it wasn't to buy anything bc I was broke, it was just to experience the feeling of home that I missed so much. Three years later, I married Chip and he pushed me to pursue my dream and open @magnolia the little shop on Bosque here in Waco. This week has been an amazing whirlwind. Thank you guys again and again for your support, and for being interested in our story. #fullcircle #themagnoliastory #thosehighheelshurt #ipreferflipflops

Joanna Gaines would consider moving to the Big Apple. She said, “New York City. I think it would be fun.”
The decorator and designer has already lived in the hustle and bustle of New York when she worked as an intern for CBS.
One of Chip’s concerns about living in a big city is, “What would we do with four kids?”
“Although, you know, it’s so funny because anytime we go to the Big City — any big city really, but New York specifically — and you see these beautiful little families and they are walking their one little baby, two max, and I’m like, What would we do with four kids? You know, you would lose at least one of those kids every time you walked down to the store and back,” Chip chimed in.
Chip would choose to live in Las Vegas and thinks “the kids would really appreciate it.”
Although they’ve talked about potential moves in the future, Waco is a perfect town for their family.
“Waco is our meet in the middle spot: half big city, half tropical —maybe not. We talk about it. We’ve been to Kansas City a lot recently and have just fallen in love with that community,” Chip shared. “Salt Lake, every time we go there it just kind of really inspires us, obviously New York City for Jo. There are a few cities across the country that we would possibly consider if Waco did not work out.”
