Despite their parents’ superstar status, Joanna and Chip Gaines’ four children will probably not get cell phones anytime soon.
“I tell the kids that you are probably not going to get a cell phone,” said Joanna during her interview with ET. “We want to teach our kids that life happens outside of these devices. It’s just a simple thing to go outside and connect with nature, play with your friends and get dirty.”
Gaines four kids, Drake, Ella, Duke, and Emmie, and regularly featured on the HGTV hit show. Whether it’s playing on the family’s farm or helping with a remodel, the kids are always active and enjoying hands-on activities with their parents.
In addition to cell phones, Chip and Joanna don’t have a TV in the home, despite starring on HGTV’s number one program.
“It’s the simple things,” said Joanna.
The lack of technology in the home allows Joanna and her family to focus on other activities including gorgeous home makeovers and a new clothing line.
Joanna teamed with Matilda Jane Clothing to design a collection of girls’ apparel. It’s slated to hit stores this December.
“It’s funny. The girls will come in my closet and they always say, ‘Hey, when I get older, can you save this dress for me? Can you save these shoes for me?’ So I thought it would be sweet to do a cute little mommy-and-me thing, even with just the aprons,” she told ET.
We can’t wait to see her designs!
