An expectant Chip and Joanna Gaines announced — possibly earlier than they meant to — that baby number five will indeed be a boy, and now we're even more excited for the little guy to make his debut. Chip and Jo are already parents to two boys, Drake, 12, and Duke, 9, who, as you can see, both sport names that begin with "D" (the couple's two girls both have names that begin with "E"). When Chip, who actually guessed that they'd have a boy very early in the pregnancy, let his young friend Gage break the news about the baby's sex, he mentioned that he needed to think of a "D" name for the new baby, but all he could come up with was "Dragon."
Since he knows — and we know — that Joanna probably isn't going to let that one fly, we've taken the liberty of coming up with several "D" names that we think sound perfect in a trio along with Drake and Duke, but also fit with the girls' names, Ella and Emmie. Here's what we've come up with:
Names Beginning With "D"
However, the plot thickens, y'all: Joanna recently mentioned that she wanted to break the couple's naming tradition in favor of a name that starts with "C." "I want a C name, he wants a D name," Jo told Today. "I say he got the boy, so I get to pick the name."
Only time will tell who wins this battle.
