Joanna Gaines’ Bio
Joanna was born on April 19, 1978, in Kansas Texas. She has lived there all her life, having grown up and attended school. And even though she belongs to a rich and mixed ethnicity– her father Jerry Stevens, being half-Lebanese and half-German while her mother whose name is unknown, is fully Korean, Joanna seems as devoted to the country she was born in as the next person.
Joanna Gaines’ early life and education
Regarding her higher education, Joanna attended Baylor University with a degree in communication. This is unsurprising seeing as her skills with people and communicating ideas into reality have been her most distinguished traits during her career. After getting her degree, she then moved to New York to be an intern in design, something which proved to be very important for Joanna’s future career. Her primary skillset resides in interior design for people’s homes.
Talking about her parents, her father is as we said Jerry Stevens, and the name of her mother is unknown yet. Despite her multicultural origin and household, she was raised as a Texan along with her two sisters: Teresa Criswell and Mary Kay McCall.
She and her husband Chip attended the same university but did not meet after she started working in an autoshop and Chip had his breaks repaired. Joanna fell for his humour and charms, and soon after they tied the knot. After finding the love of her life in Chip Gaines in the year 2003, she and him established a family with five children: Ella (Daughter), Emmie (Daughter), Drake (Son), Duke (Son), Daughter (Name Unknown).
Joanna Gaines’ Career – her rise to stardom
Joanna started her career as a designer and opened a boutique in 2003, an important year for her. After that she embarked on a new business adventure, her “Little Shop on Bosque” and opened the first Magnolia Market, a furniture and home decor shop, with the help of her husband who supported them in flourishing their careers. Joanna in many interviews has stated the contribution of her husband, helping her sharpen her design and renovation style while he was more focused on construction.
She briefly paused her work to focus on their two children, but soon began her TV as well. That was in the year 2013, ten years later, when she and her husband arrived on the TV screens as part of a house rehab show. Her impeccable skills of interior aesthetic and knowing when to choose the right colour, landed her with three award nominations. Although she went home without an award, the proof is still there that Gaines has left a mark on the interior design world.
In 2017, she and her husband announced a pause and closure of her TV show. But in 2018, yet again Joanna announced on a show that she and Chip will be reappearing in a brand new programme. It seems that the year-long pause has been helpful for her, as she has during that time published a book ‘Magnolia Story’, sharing her experience from business to marriage and personal philosophy. Needless to say, she has attained a financially secure position.
