UPDATE: Don't fret, Fixer Upper fanatics. Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines say they aren't parting ways with their beloved Texas property. 

A spokesperson for Magnolia told E! News in a statement, "Any report that Chip and Joanna have sold their farmhouse is completely untrue. They have not sold their home and they do not have any plans to do so. The Gaines recently moved their property line to match their fence line—this is not uncommon and is a matter of public record—which is likely what triggered this false report."


After saying goodbye to their show, Chip Gaines and Joanna Gaines are bidding farewell to their home. 

The Fixer Upper stars have sold their Texas farmhouse famously featured throughout the series, E! News has confirmed. 

According to documents filed on Oct. 5, the husband and wife have sold their property to another couple. The news of the sale comes exactly a month after the two announced that their longtime HGTV series will finish with season 5

The Most Dramatic Fixer Upper Transformations of All Time

"It is with both sadness and expectation that we share the news that season 5 of Fixer Upper will be our last. While we are confident that this is the right choice for us, it has for sure not been an easy one to come to terms with," the couple wrote in a joint blog post at the time. "Our family has grown up alongside yours, and we have felt you rooting us on from the other side of the screen. How bittersweet to say goodbye to the very thing that introduced us all in the first place."


As fixer upper pros, Chip and Joanna purchased the house in 2012 and spent 18 months renovating it. "After living in nine different homes, we were ready to settle on some land and stay a while," Joanna wrote on their blog. "Living on a farm has always been a dream of ours, and we were excited when it finally became a reality."

While the reason for the sale is currently unclear, it certainly looks like the Gaines family is starting a new chapter in their lives after ending their show and moving out. However, if there's one pair that can handle some redecorating, it's this duo. 

Meanwhile, fans will wait and hope for pictures of their future new home!
