Joanna Gaines is no fixer-upper. In fact, as far as her husband and HGTV partner Chip is concerned, she's just about perfect.

And for her 39th birthday Wednesday, he made sure that she — and their many fans and followers — knew it.

Alongside a photo of his wife that he posted to Instagram, Chip wrote, "Jo, you are the best at everything you do. Watching you do your thing is one of my greatest joys."

That wasn't all he had to say. The contractor also expressed pure wonder over the woman he married nearly 14 years ago.

"You are fascinating in every way, and like the rest of the world... I can't wait to see what's next," he continued. "Happy birthday, young lady!"
