Magnolia mogul and reality star Joanna Gaines makes being a working mom of five look easy, but according to a new report, her seemingly perfect life has its share of challenges. An insider recently dished to Radar Online that sometimes Gaines gets so overwhelmed and stressed, that she needs a “timeout.”

“She has inner strength and powers that anyone would be impressed by, but like any human being, she goes through these low points,” revealed the insider. “She has spent so many years making everything look perfect and tidy when the truth is far from it. Jo gets stressed with her OTT schedule!”

Last summer, the former Fixer Upper star welcomed baby number five with her husband Chip and having a newborn in addition to four other children under the age of fifteen in the house has made life even crazier.

Chip and Joanna are the parents of Drake, 14, Ella Rose, 12, Duke, 9, Emmie Kay, 8, and Crew, 7 months.

The source says that when baby Crew is fussing, and the other kids are making messes, Gaines is just like every other mom, and she has to decompress in a quiet space.

The insider says that Gaines is letting everyone know that she isn’t Wonder Woman, and she is going to need some mommy time every now and then because things are about to get even more hectic.

In addition to taking care of five kids, running her Magnolia Market at the Silos, working on her Hearth & Hand brand at Target, writing a new children’s book, and running her new Waco restaurant, the 40-year-old has signed a new TV deal and she has also introduced a new home goods collection with Anthropologie.

When it comes to interior design, everything Gaines touches becomes perfection, so the pairing with Anthropologie is a no-brainer.

Gaines says that Anthropologie has often been a source of inspiration for her, and she enjoys combining their globally-inspired aesthetic with her rustic style. The new line will feature pillows that range in price from $38 to $138 and rugs that range between $178 and $1198.

The collection is already available for sale on the Anthropologie website, and Joanna Gaines’ first children’s book We Are the Gardeners will be available in stores on March 26th.

    She sounds like a normal human being who is handling stress correctly by taking time out. I admire her style and grace. It’s been cool watching her style expand & her favor grow among a diverse audience. Blessings to the Gaines family!

    Is the collection going to include shiplap and a custom table? Despite the tastes of the paying customers, all the “design” work is identical. Whose children call their parents sir and ma’am? Why have another child if she can’t handle four? How is it possible that she spends any time with her children working so many jobs?

    I just adore Jo Gaines and she seems to love taking care of her responsibilities-- and she is great at it. We ALL get a little frustrated from time to time but she has a grace and a calmness about her that is enviable. But if a mother of 5 needs time out to scream into a pillow or to meditate, bless her heart because 5 kids would have me hiding in a closet for weeks at a time. LOL Blessings, love and well wishes to the Gaines family!
