  In more ways than one, Chip and Joanna Gaines have spent the past
  decade building an empire from the ground up.

  The stars of HGTV's massive hit "Fixer Upper," the
  husband-and-wife team are a household name, known for their
  ability to transform rundown properties into 
  beautiful homes.

  Since the show first aired in 2013, the Gaineses' flagship store,
  Magnolia Market, has
  grown into a lifestyle brand that is often 
  credited for revitalizing the small town of 
  Waco, Texas. In 2015, the two converted an abandoned Waco
  site into a bustling retail marketplace,
  complete with a bakery, food trucks, and more. One year after
  that, the couple published a 
  tell-all memoir that quickly became a national best-seller.

  While "Fixer Upper" is no longer in production, the Gaineses are
  gearing up to launch their own TV network with
  Discovery. And, through their many ventures, the two seem to
  enjoy a happy marriage.

  Below, we've compiled everything you need to know about how they
  met, fell in love, and became the beloved, house-flipping duo we
  know today.
