HGTV royalty and Fixer Upper stars Chip and Joanna Gaines have recently been through the rumor wringer and are speaking out against the accusation that the two are splitting up. “Won’t ever happen,” said Chip.
The couple have been married since 2003 and now have four children together — and a home improvement empire. A fan wrote on Twitter about her disgust with the false rumors coming out about the happily married pair: “I’m so sick of these ‘stories’ claiming [Joanna] and [Chip] breaking up. Leave this couple alone they are wonderful together.”

A very Chris Crocker approach by an intense Fixer Upper fan. But it worked! Chip responded to the tweet by saying, “Won’t ever happen… you can take that to the bank! #LoveOfMyLife” It’s seriously adorable.

Their love story is pretty normal. Joanna was working in her dad’s auto shop and Chip walked in for some regular old business. He saw her picture displayed on the wall on the shop, and that was it. “I knew I’d marry her one day just by the picture on the wall,” Chip told PopSugar.
The couple also told their love story to Us Weekly in January 2016, so it’s no secret how stable they are and why these rumors simply make no sense. Chip was the first one to say “I love you,” he said. “And then I said ‘thank you,’” Joanna told Us.
The contractor and designer had the cutest engagement, too. Chip says he put a lot of thought into his proposal, and Joanna says she didn’t even see it coming. “I didn’t even know he was gonna propose to me,” she starts. “He takes me to a ring shop I’ve never been in, in this small little town, and said there was a concert. So I’m thinking behind it there were going to be a bunch of these people. This man [Chip] comes out and he’s wearing an apron. He’s like, ‘Welcome to my jewelry shop, you get to design your ring.’ It was very sweet. It completely blew me away.”
So, yeah. There’s no way these two are breaking up. Probably not ever.
