HGTV star Erin Napier recently gave birth to her second daughter, Mae, on May 28 and shared that she is thankful to her husband and her daughter’s father, Ben Napier.
On Instagram, Erin shared how Ben supported the family throughout her pregnancy and time with the newborn.
“If he’s not scooping me up off the sofa as I’m still recovering from surgery, he’s mixing a bottle or taking Helen swimming,” Erin wrote. “And I have kissed him every time he’s in arm’s reach because I know exactly how lucky we all are. 😍.”
Erin continued: “A reminder for those with spouses: tell them often – ‘thank you for everything you do for us.’ and MEAN IT.”
Their emphasis on family and faith meant that the couple gave up career opportunities for the sake of watching their children grow up.
Ben and Erin Napier of HGTV’s HOME TOWN said they refuse to put fame over their family.
In addition to family, the couple puts a heavy emphasis on their Christian faith.
“For us, none of this would have happened without our faith. I’m sure a lot of people would say that, but for us, it was literally not something that we were seeking out. TV was never even an idea for us,” Ben told Guideposts.
“It was kind of like we were stepping into something totally unknown simply by saying, ‘Yes, OK, God, we’re going to let You take this and if it works, great, and if it don’t, we know You’ll take care of us.’ For me and for Erin, too, we both rely on our parents a lot for advice. And when you are from South Mississippi and you start talking about having a national TV show on HGTV, that doesn’t really happen,” he continued.
