Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines' marriage is sound.

Chip and Joanna rose to fame in their reality show "Fixer Upper" on HGTV. Due to the success of their series, their fans were shocked when they announced that the fifth season would be their last. This triggered the speculations that the couple have marital problems and are splitting. However, there is no truth to such claims.

Chip's mom, Gayle Gaines, debunked the split rumors by describing the couple's relationship. "I would say their marriage is very sound," she told Life & Style. She also supported the couple's decision to quit their TV show as this will give the family some time to rest. It looked like the family really needed it.

"We realize people are going to make accusations, presumptions but for Jo and I, it really was about taking a step back and getting a little time with our family [and] catching our breath," Chip told Fox News.

Chip and Joanna also addressed the split rumors themselves. According to them, they understand why people make a fuss about their decision to quit "Fixer Upper."

"When you put yourself out in the public light like this, people are going to speculate like this and we have had our fair share of that, but Jo and I are just as happy as we have ever been," the couple told Daily Pop (via E! News).

Chip admitted that he was surprised with the gossip. But he understands that with the booming business ventures in their hometown, their fans are "anxious to see what the next chapter was going to hold."

Meanwhile, Joanna wants everyone to understand that not all things that end happened because of an unfortunate event. "I think it seems weird to kind of leave on a high note. I think for people, there has got to be a negative reason to that. I think that is not always how life has to be," she explained.

Chip and Joanna already said that the biggest reason they decided to quit "Fixer Upper" is their children. They have a young growing family to attend to. Their family is their priority.

Julie Armstrong, a Beverly Hills-based psychologist also believes that it is best for Chip and Joanna to step away from the spotlight. "It has the potential to bring new life, joy, and fun into the relationship again, to freshen it up. Just like they freshen up a home!" Armstrong told Life & Style.

The final season of “Fixer Upper” premieres on Nov. 28 on HGTV.
