HGTV has been quite popular recently. With the launch of new TV shows such as “Home Town” and “Flip or Flop,” and staggering new home remodeling ideas, HGTV has seen the spotlight in the past few years. But good news struck the show’s viewers when they found out that their favorite TV stars were expecting a new addition to their family.
Please tune in to the #HGTVHomeTown holiday special TONIGHT at 9|8 ct on @hgtv if you'd like to see us laugh until we cry over Christmas crackers (you crazy northerners!), a home video from the 80s, our favorite moments from season 1, some behind the scenes secrets, some dumb games and Q&As, and me struggling to pregnant breathe as I sat on @malraz's cushy sofa after a huge lunch that made me feel SUPER good about myself. Should be a good time! We'll be live tweeting! #waymorefunthanfootballamiright
Stars of the famous show “Home Town,” Ben and Erin Napier, announced on Instagram that their family of two was now of three! The Instagram post on Jan 4th consisted of photos of Erin and her daughter’s first moments, along with a minimalistic caption “Helen,” which was obviously the baby’s name.
However, the birth wasn’t that big of a surprise for those who had been following them previously. Somewhere in October of 2017, the couple had announced that Erin was pregnant. Erin even went so far as to state that the name of the daughter will definitely be her grandmother’s.
Helen arrived in the household just in time for the second season of “Home Town”, which airs January 8th. Since the season is already out, the Napiers can focus on more dire and important things, such as the adorable little addition to their family tree!
Erin prays that her daughter will be an epitome of courage and chivalry, and that of kindness and empathy. She also prays that Helen would never be bullied like her, and that may Helen provide her help to those in need of it.
Erin stated further that she prays that her daughter looks up to her father, and love everyone the way her father does. Erin also opened up about her family life and her past with Ben in an Instagram post. She narrates how she met Ben when the two of them were in college, and how they fell in love shortly afterward.
They’ve been together for as long as Erin can remember, and their contrasting personalities have actually proven to be quite successful in sustaining their relationship. And now, years later, after the birth of Helen, the bond has only grown stronger and firmer.
Ben remarks at the incredible amount of energy that one can get from just a bit of coffee and a few minutes’ sleep. He also said that falling in love would be a great alternative for that as well.
Ben even stated that he has found new and renewed love for his wife, more than he ever thought was possible. Perhaps it’s the overlooking sense of responsibility and parenthood that has made the two a perfect couple, or maybe it’s the fact that Ben could never change the diapers on his own. Guess we’ll never know!
The feelings are mutual and reciprocated by the lucky mother. Erin thanked her husband for having such a loving heart and for making room in his life for both her and the snugly new addition.
