In the winter issue of the Magnolia Journal, Joanna Gaines revealed that she pierced her nose and even wore the stud on screen.
The magazine, which hit newsstands on Friday (November 12), features an essay by the Fixer Upper star where she admits that she got her nose pierced a few years ago at the urging of her little sister, Mikey.
“Getting a nose ring was way outside my comfort zone — I’ve always preferred the safe side of life. But my little sister, Mikey, has always been the opposite,” Gaines wrote. “She has the great ability to be spontaneous and lives by the parts of her personality that are wild and free.”
Gaines admitted that she couldn’t help but “want in on the adventure” due to Mikey’s easy-going attitude toward her own nose ring.
“I think anyone else in my life would have been surprised if I’d told them I wanted to get my nose pierced. But Mikey didn’t ask questions or express doubt. She just said, ‘What are you waiting for? Let’s do it!’ And five minutes later we were on our way,” Joanna recalled.
The mom of five only kept the tiny piercing for a week, but it did make an appearance in 2017 during Fixer Upper‘s fifth season. The impulsive move basically went unnoticed by fans, but if you look closely you might catch a glimpse of the little gold stud in the episode titled “Austin Couple Finds Waco Charm.”
