These Super-Cute Toddlers Went As ‘Fixer Upper’ Stars Chip And Joanna Gaines For Halloween
This is the most adorable #DemoDay pairing you'll ever see!
Chip and Joanna Gaines won the hearts of interior design lovers everywhere with their hit HGTV show “Fixer Upper.” But it’s not just mommies and daddies who can relate to the lovable TV couple. Oh no, kids are very into this show, too, and these Halloween costumes will prove it to you.
Sydney Frenkel and Ryan Freedman, both 2 years old, dressed up as the Gaines couple for Halloween. Their tiny costumes couldn’t have been cuter or more spot-on—toolbelt, Waco, Texas shirt and all.
This guy right here… I get to live life with him. I get to hear his thoughts and benefit from his wisdom and encouragement on a daily basis. The reason I am who I am today is because Chip pushed me to go for it. People think of him as a jokester, and he is. It’s a huge part of why I fell in love with him in the first place. But he is so much more than that. He is the ultimate cheerleader, coach and dream maker. I am so thrilled that his book releases today mostly because I believe it holds truth that the world is in desperate need of. I am always proud to be Chip’s wife but today more than ever. I know this book was a true labor of love. Well done, Chip Carter Gaines! #CapitalGaines @chipgaines
According to Frenkel’s mom, Eumy Rha Frenkel, the pair are like Chip and Joanna even when it’s not Halloween.
“The kids truly act like and old married couple,” she told Parents magazine. “They light up when they see each other and bicker like husband and wife.”
The parents have had this costume planned for quite some time, which is probably why the outfits came together so perfectly. Nothing like good prep work!
“Almost a year ago, we thought it would be funny if they were still best friends this year, that it would be perfect to dress them up as Chip and Joanna,” Frenkel told POPSUGAR.
While there was obviously some effort involved in making these costumes come to life, they weren’t all the parents’ idea. Frenkel told Parents.com, “The kids love the show, and when Sydney sees Joanna, she says, ‘She looks like me!'”
Sadly, the Gaines announced that “Fixer Upper” would be ending after five seasons (the fifth season debuts Nov. 21 on HGTV). The couple say they are looking to slow down and pour their energy into their family and their other businesses, which includes Hearth and Hand, a new line of homegoods sold at Target.

All right, it’s time you get a load of these Halloween looks for yourself:
These two couldn’t be cuter if they tried!
Just for comparison:
Yep, that’s Chip and Jo, all right! Not only do they have the looks down, they’ve nailed the personalities, too:
These toddlers weren’t the only people to let the Gaines inspire their Halloween costumes, either. There were newborns and adults who also dressed as one of these reality TV stars.
Look at this baby as Joanna:
It’s so adorable we almost can’t handle it!
The Gaines’ liked their Halloween likenesses so much that they re-posted the pics on their Magnolia Instagram account to show them off:
They captioned the photo series:
“We might be biased, but we think costumes like these deserve a little extra candy! How cute are these Chip and Jo lookalikes?”
Because it just doesn’t get better than these Chip and Jo minis!
