"Chip loves Ryan Reynolds. I'm sure he has a man crush on him. He likes to go back and forth with Scott Foley," Joanna revealed. "There are a few people every now and then I will hear him gasp, 'Look who just tweeted me.' It still doesn't feel real. We are just Chip and Joanna in Waco, Texas."

It might not feel real, but it's definitely happening. In fact, Gaines and Reynolds have tweeted back and forth several times.

Reynolds and his wife, Blake Lively, aren't the only celebrity fans of the Gaines' HGTV show -- some of whom have reached out to the couple to renovate their homes.

"Famous, not famous, I think we've had a few [renovation requests], but at the end of the day, when we really look at our schedule... our kids are young and travel is not something that is easy for us right now," she said. "But in the future, who knows? We are just humbled that people want our help on these homes."

With a few famous friends, a hit TV show, a boutique and now a clothing line for Matilda Jane, Chip and Joanna have become bona fide stars in their own right. But despite their celebrity status, family has always been priority No. 1.

"One of the things in the beginning that Chip and I really wanted to be sure of [is] that our kids will always know that they are the most important," Joanna shared. "With the show and with all these amazing projects, I think we just take it one step at a time and we really evaluate each one very carefully and thoroughly and [ask], 'How is this going to affect our family?'"

It seems that the design business itself has already had an effect on their children, who are starting to show an interest in the field -- especially their daughter, Ella.

"Both of my girls love the idea of design," Joanna revealed, before noting that Ella has particularly taken to the craft. "A couple years back, she started this little journal where she was designing dresses."

"Ella has always loved the idea of fashion and as of this last year is very interested in design, just with renovations. So I brought her along with that journey as well," she continued. "I have let her pick out a few materials, paint colors, so I think it's important when your kids have this interest in something creative, I think it's fun to bring them in on that and really help cultivate that."

Fixer Upper airs at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV, and Joanna's Matilda James clothing line is available Dec. 1.
