Jan. 10 (UPI) -- Fixer Upper star Joanna Gaines will soon open the doors to her first restaurant.

The 39-year-old television personality said in an Instagram post Tuesday that she and husband Chip Gaines are "getting so close" to opening Magnolia Table.

Joanna shared a slideshow of photos of herself and Chip cementing their handprints outside the establishment. The couple purchased the restaurant, formerly known as Elite Cafe, in May 2016.

"The restaurant is getting so close. Magnolia Table will be open soon and we can't believe it?!? Chip + Jo," Joanna wrote.

Chip recently shared his vision for the Waco, Texas, restaurant in an interview with Southern Living. The 43-year-old television personality and author described the new eatery as "a breakfast joint" poised to open in the summer.

"I've always been a breakfast connoisseur. I always do a heavy, bigger breakfast, but Jo is the exact opposite. She was kind enough to come with me on this one," Chip said.

"The restaurant itself is literally one big giant kitchen. When we first got in there, it was all the things you can imagine," he confessed. "But if I took you in there today, you'd be like, 'Oh! This is so clean, everything smells so great.'"

Joanna's update follows news she is pregnant and expecting her fifth child. She and Chip, who are already parents to 12-year-old Drake, 11-year-old Ella, 9-year-old Duke and 7-year-old Emmie, shared an announcement this month.

Chip and Joanna came to fame on Fixer Upper, which will end after Season 5 on HGTV. The pair explained in an interview with Today in October that they were ending the show to "focus" on their marriage.
