The Gaines family has another driver in the house!

On Sunday, May 27, Joanna Gaines celebrated as her son Duke turned 16. The mom of five, 46, shared a sweet video on Instagram showing her decorating her dining room table for her son's birthday, putting up large balloons, a "Happy Birthday" sign and placing presents on the table.

Joanna, who shares her five kids with husband Chip Gaines, then revealed that Duke passed his driving test, sharing a photo of the 16-year-old signing some paperwork while Chip snapped a selfie.

The video concluded with Joanna waving the newly minted driver back home as she stood in the driveway.

"Third time doing this and it still makes mama cry. #16," Joanna captioned the clip.

In addition to Duke, the HGTV couple is parents to Drake, 19, Ella, 17, Emmie, 14, and Crew, 5.

Last November, the Magnolia Network founders opened up about the realities of raising four teenagers (and a preschooler), what their kids think about their parents' success, and their hopes for the future.

"What we have realized about our kids is, they want to feel as normal as possible. So they don't ever talk about any of it. I think they love the idea of flying under the radar, feeling normal," said Joanna.

"We get that. But maybe they'll be proud of this one day," she added, referring to the lifestyle empire she and Chip have built over the last 20 years, which started with a small home goods shop in downtown Waco, Texas and has grown to include a hit HGTV show, product lines, books, and as of 2022, their own TV network.

On the rare occasion that their teens do let slip their admiration for their parents' projects, the Fixer Upper stars can't help but bask in it.

Shortly before opening the 33-room boutique Hotel 1928 in November, Joanna gave Ella and Emmie a sneak peek. "They kept saying, 'I can't believe something like this is in Waco. We feel like we're in New York City' That was the biggest compliment," she said. "I was like, 'Ah, they're finally impressed.' It felt like a big win."
