When it comes to splitting parenting duties for their baby on the way, fifth-time mom-to-be Joanna Gaines and husband Chip are sticking with what they know.

“Chip is the best swaddler,” Joanna, 40, says in the latest issue of PEOPLE, available Friday. “He’s always been able to rock our babies to sleep. He’s like, ‘I’m going to be holding the baby the entire time!’ ”

The Fixer Upper star is expecting a baby boy this summer, and admits there’s one part of parenting she and Chip, 43, might be a little rusty on: diaper duty!

“We need to figure that one out again,” she says. “I don’t even remember, but I do remember the blowouts and I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh!’ I’ve gotta get my stuff together. It’s coming!”

Given the amount of time that’s elapsed since she was last pregnant (she and Chip are also parents to sons Duke, 9, and Drake, 13, plus daughters Emmie Kay, 8, and Ella Rose, 11), the experience has been a refreshing eye-opener for Joanna.

“I have forgotten almost everything, so it feels brand new,” says the expectant Behind the Design star, whose new cookbook Magnolia Table is available now.

Joanna adds, “I tell Chip that I feel 25, and in my mind there’s something about it that gives me an extra kick in my step. Forty and pregnant … who would have ever thought that was going to happen? But I’ll take it!”
