Joanna Gaines has so much to celebrate! Back in January, the Fixer Upper star and her husband Chip made their heartwarming pregnancy announcement, sharing with the world that baby #5 was on the way. And yesterday, Joanna celebrated a big birthday!

  • Joanna took to Instagram to share this adorable shot of herself, writing, "This is 40. And I like it... #pregnantandforty #anddoughnuts."

    Yep, the Magnolia Homes co-owner, co-founder, and lead designer is now the big 4-0!

  • Commenters were loving everything about the post. Some sent her b-day wishes and sent straightforward props.

  • Others were psyched to tell her that turning 40 is fantastic ... and 50 is fairly amazing, as well.

  • Several moms chimed in to share that they too were pregnant at or around 40, and they loved it!

  • Joanna's post undoubtedly served as a reassurance for some women.

    After all, whether you struggle with getting pregnant or pregnancy loss, you're focused on your career and/or other responsibilities, or you were served a curveball that has delayed your baby-making timeline, many women who want kids aren't able to do so in their 20s or 30s. So, it's heartening to see Joanna ringing in the big 4-0 with a baby on the way.

  • As if fans needed even more reason to adore the HGTV star.

    Congrats and HBD, Joanna!
