 The show, which focuses on the married couple's home renovations around Waco, Texas, also highlights the playful relationship they have with each other. 

Joanna recently posted a video on her Instagram account featuring two children who recreated the Gaineses' dynamic and teased the show in an adorable way. 

Well, this is just the cutest thing we've ever seen! Thanks @ginalee and @becky_hales for sharing this video with us! #fixerupper

A video posted by Joanna Stevens Gaines (@joannagaines) on

"Well, this is just the cutest thing we've ever seen," Joanna wrote in a caption for the video.

Fans Gina Lee and Becky Hales sent the Gaineses the video, which features their four-year-old children. Lee's daughter, Willow, and Hales' son, Cooper, are friends who have been featured in many creative projects together.

"We are huge fans of the show," Lee told Today. "It was just a big play date. We did the video in a couple hours with a couple of snack and juice breaks."

According to "Today," Lee and Hales came up with the idea, and Lee's husband made the video.

"We filmed at our home in Redlands, California. For the landscape scenes, we took the kids to a barn house in the middle of a beautiful field that was a dire fixer upper," Lee told People.

The video opens up with Willow asking viewers if they're ready to see a renovated home while the two stand on either side of a two-piece poster. Chip and Joanna ask the same question before pulling the two pieces apart to reveal completed projects.

"Our friend at our local print shop made our picture on rolling wheels," Lee said.

The most spot-on part of the project may be the children's likenesses to the real Chip and Joanna. Some scenes show the Willow's hair braided, like Joanna's signature look, and the duo wear shirts from the Gainses' official Magnolia product line.

The video has been viewed more than 1 million times on Instagram.
