In a tell-all interview with PopSugar in June 2018, Chip explained, “Her dad made the mistake of putting a pic of the family behind the counter at his [automotive] shop. I knew I’d marry her one day just by the picture on the wall.”
Soon, fate brought the pair together. Chip had brought his vehicle into the repair shop to fix the brakes. Much to his delight, Joanna was helping her dad out at work that day, and the pair hit it off. “He was genuinely engaging, and he had such a sincere smile,” Joanna recalled.
But despite her initial attraction, Joanna was initially a little wary about Chip. “At first, I couldn’t believe how kind Chip was. He had kind eyes, and made me laugh a lot,” she added. And eventually she fell for him. “I knew he was the one because I knew I could trust him,” Joanna explained.
