It looks like Joanna Gaines has a big-budget project on her hands: renovating Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez’s new $6M Malibu mansion.

Jennifer Lopez first shared that she had purchased a beachfront home in Malibu on Ellen, noting that it was beautiful but that it needed lots of work. During that same interview, Lopez fangirled over Joanna Gaines, revealing that A-Rod had set up a surprise sweet call from the renovation mogul and former HGTV star.

“I’m obsessed with Fixer Upper,” Lopez told Ellen “And we actually got a ‘fixer upper’ next to the water. And I was like, wouldn’t it be amazing to have [Joanna] do our house? But she doesn’t do anything outside of Waco.”


Still, cameras snapped Gaines and Lopez on the beach together, appearing to be observing Lopez’s new property and assessing the work that needs to be done. Even more telling? There was a camera crew in tow.

So could Lopez’s home makeover be the Gaines’ next big project for the network she and husband Chip Gaines are launching? It looks like it, according to sources at People Magazine.

“Jennifer wanted to walk the space with Joanna in person,” the source said.  “They’re both extremely busy, but it’s hard to take on any kind of home project without actually seeing the space.”

For now, there are no concrete plans, People reports. But at least there is some before footage either way.
