Joanna Gaines has turned up the cuteness levels with her newest Instagram post showing their Easter Celebration from 11 years ago, which has the Gaines family fans flooding her comments sections. 

The "Fixer Upper" star posted a photo showing her standing with her four children posing for a typical mall photo with the Easter Bunny. All four of her children were under the age of four at that time.

THE GAINES CREW

At that time, the Gaines crew was made up of Drake, 4, Ella, 3, Duke, almost 2, and Emmie Kay as a small baby. All four children stood around the bunny hesitantly, with the baby lying in the character's arms for the snap. 

Joanna smiled broadly alongside her children in the adorable throwback picture and hasn't seemed to have aged a day in the 11 years since the picture was taken. She captioned the post: 

"Easter 2010. Classic mall photo with the Easter bunny. This feels like a lifetime ago... Drake was 4, Ella was 3, Duke was almost 2, and Emmie Kay was a baby."

BEHIND-THE-SCENES

Joanna, who shares her five children with her husband and "Fixer Upper" co-star Chip Gaines, didn't end the throwback there as she took to her Instagram stories to share the backstory to the precious Easter snap. 

The reality star gave in after months and called the beautiful Joanna back, but it took time to win her over.

The 42-year-old candidly revealed that two-year-old Duke had been sobbing before the camera button had been pressed because he was scared of the Easter Bunny and that Drake didn't want to touch the bunny whatsoever.

GAINES HISTORY

The mother of five loves to share throwback pictures of her children and look back on the family's history. With their youngest, Crew, born in 2018, Joanna and Chip have a lifetime of stories about their children to share.

The 42-year-old shared a sweet photo showing her oldest son Drake as a baby in his dad's arms in celebration of his sweet 16. The reality star captioned the post: 

"This cutie is 16 today! Drake was my little shop baby and he came to work with me every day."

HOW THEY MET

Although Chip and Joanna were both students at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, their alma mater is not the location of the beginning of their love story that kickstarted the Magnolia empire. 

The two "Fixer Upper" stars met in Joanna's father's auto shop, where she was working in the marketing department. Chip came in to have work done on his car and saw a photo of the young Joanna in the shop.

Chip continued to return to the family's shop as an excuse to get his eyes on his future wife and eventually asked Joanna out on a date in 2001. Chip almost lost Joanna after not calling her back after the first date because of a bet. 

The reality star gave in after months and called the beautiful Joanna back, but it took time to win her over. The two took months to get to know each other, but it all led to a successful marriage and business in the end.
