According to Joanna Gaines, strong weed is the reason why her parents grew to like each other and plant seeds for a family.

The Fixer Upper star leaned on her podcast to make the remarkably candid comments, Parade reported. Not only did Gaines reveal how her parents met, she even welcomed her mother to join her for the podcast episode.

Here’s how Joanna Gaines became such a big deal that there is a strong demand for information about her, both personally and professionally.

Joanna Gaines’ Professional Life

Joanna Gaines and her husband, Chip,  head up home decorating a favorite family in Waco, Texas.

The former HGTV show hosts recently relaunched their own network show on Discovery+ as Fixer Upper: Welcome Home. They also launched their own Magnolia Network in addition to their shopping mecca in Waco, Magnolia Market at the Silos.

Ganes released a home design guide, Homebody: A Guide to Creating Spaces You Never Want to Leave, in 2018. Before that, she and her husband wrote a joint memoir entitled The Magnolia Story.

Joanna Gaines’ New Revelations

During the discussion with her mother, the latter disclosed that she and her husband met during a night out, People reported.

“You guys were at a party,” Gaines said, leading off the discussion.

“Oh, who cares, everybody knows. She likes the Beatles — it was a pot party. It’s fine,” Gaines replied.

Gaines’ mother also disclosed how she and Gaines’ dad married on the steps of a courthouse. For good measure, they dressed casually.

Perhaps Gaines developed the courage to spill details about her life and career after recently releasing her new memoir. Like her podcast, it’s titled The Stories We Tell.

Gaines explained in a recent Instagram post why she decided to release the book.

“I’ve been longing for clarity about what I should carry forward and how I could hold this next chapter well,” she wrote. “At some point, I realized I was writing a story — my story. The bits and pieces that shape who I am. It was messy and winding and beautiful, and graciously revealed about a million wonders. Some of it broke my heart — and some of [the memoir] pieced [memories of her life] back together.”

Gaines added that she hopes “any part of [her] story might shine a light on the fullness of [other people’s lives].”
