They now have a multi-million dollar industry, including the Magnolia silos in the city of Waco, and their own network on Discovery+.

Joanna met her husband Chip, 47, in 2001 while working at her dad's tire shop. Chip popped the question in a shopping centre in Texas, allowing the couple to design her antique diamond ring together. Joanna and Chip tied the knot in 2003 and went on to welcome five kids: Drake, Ella, Duke, Emmie, and Crew.

They have always been candid about their life, and recently, in an essay in Magnolia Journal, the quarterly lifestyle magazine she publishes with her husband, Jo spoke about having to "surrender" to God's plan.

"In our 20 years of marriage, Chip and I have experienced a little bit of all of it," Joanna began. "Losing a loved one. Shifts in friendships. Bills we couldn't pay. Moments where our hearts were broken," the interior designer said, explaining that that includes her eldest son leaving the nest to go to college.

"Times when all hope felt lost and circumstances were out of our control. When all I could think to do was lay face down on the floor in surrender," she added.
