After several seasons of hanging onto every Fixer Upper design detail, it’s safe to say we know a thing or two about Joanna Gaines (she loves shiplap and hates walls). In honor of the highly anticipated reboot, we’re setting the record straight on a few things Gaines mega fans might not know about Jo.

From her upbringing to her early design days, here are ten surprising facts about the Fixer Upper star.

1. She Didn’t Grow Up in Waco, Texas

The design guru was actually born in Wichita, Kansas in 1978. Her family moved to Austin, Texas, when she was 12 years old, and they didn’t plant roots in Waco until her junior year of high school.

Happy 45th Anniversary to these two! My parents met in 1969 when my dad was stationed in Korea and their story is one you hear about in the movies. All the odds were against them but they fought through and became an example of how to love, fight for, extend grace to, and honor each other amidst all their many differences. Here’s to many more years! ??

2. She’s Half-Korean

Joanna’s dad, Jerry, is half-Lebanese and half-German, and Joanna’s mom, Nan, is 100 percent Korean. They met in Seoul, Korea, while he was serving overseas during the Vietnam War. Three daughters and 47 years later, they’re still together, and, as Joanna wrote, they’re “an example of how to love, fight for, extend grace to, and honor each other amidst all their many differences.” *Sniffles*
