Erin Napier and Husband Ben Napier Make Second Baby News Official
It's a girl!
Erin Napier and her husband Ben Napier have become parents to two beautiful daughters after the birth of their little angel, Mae.
The couple made the joyous announcement via Instagram on May 30, 2021.
The post on Erin's Instagram featured a trio of Polaroid snaps in the same panel. The first of the snaps captured the newborn gently kissed by the natural light while her mother's silhouette watched over her.
The second time around, the camera captured a napping Mae wrapped in an adorable baby blanket with her name embroidered in pink.
Finally, the third Polaroid snap framed the now-father-of-two holding his youngest in his arms. The infant was still asleep as the proud father faced the camera, almost as if he was taking a selfie.
According to E!, the youngest Napier, named after Erin's aunt Mae, was born on the morning of May 29, 2021.
The Napiers Were Excited
The star couple from HGTV's Home Town, who is also parents to 3-year-old daughter Helen, opened up to People after welcoming little Mae into the world. They shared,
While we are excited to have another daughter to love, we are more excited to see the bond she and Helen will have. They're already so in love with each other!
The high school sweethearts turned husband-wife first announced the news of their pregnancy back in April 2021. However, the couple themselves found out in September 2020.
Pregnant in a Busy Year
The couple shared the big news with People exclusively. At the time, the doting husband confessed that the latter half of 2020 was mostly a blur because of all the traveling they had to do between their two shows.
Besides shooting for their regular show Home Town in Laurel, Mississippi, the couple had to frequently travel to Wetumpka, Alabama, to film their new show Home Town Takeover.
The couple was often making the 200-mile commute when they found out that they were expecting again. Add to that the pressure of the coronavirus pandemic, and the going got tough for the couple.
Still, the couple made peace with the hard work that they had to do and took on everything in stride.
"We don't remember anything, but I'm glad somebody was filming all of it," Erin confessed to the outlet.
Another Napier Coming Soon
At the same time, the reality TV couple also made the announcement on their HGTV show. In fact, that particular episode of the show was a double pregnancy reveal.
Aside from Erin and Ben, his brother Jessie and his sister-in-law Lauren were also pregnant. Erin also revealed that her sister-in-law was due three weeks after her.
Meaning, in three weeks from this writing, there will be one more baby Napier to play with little Mae.
The couple, who got married in 2008, had faced serious hurdles on their path to parenthood.
However, as the age-old saying goes, "All's well that ends well." They are now a family of four.
