Erin and Ben Napier expecting baby number two!

I’ve made no secret about the amount of free time (4-5 hours a day, some days) I spend watching HGTV programing.  But did you know… ok, just for fun, which mister fixet would I scoop up as my husband in a flash? BEN!!

He’s Paul Bunyon big with the gentleness that the name Ben deserves. He’s funny, he’s smart…. he belongs to another woman… moving on….

So Ben and Erin have shared their joyous news. Naturally with

The couple, who already share daughter Helen, 3, learned the happy news in September while simultaneously filming Home Town in Laurel, Mississippi, and their new show, Home Town Takeover, about 200 miles away in Wetumpka, Alabama.

“The last six months of 2020 really, you know, it was rough. It’s all a blur,” Ben jokes of filming, traveling and preparing for a new baby during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“We were like, ‘Ooh, this is going to be tough, but we can do it,'” says Erin. “We don’t remember anything, but I’m glad somebody was filming all of it.”

The couple also broke the news on Sunday night’s episode of Home Town, which featured a double pregnancy reveal. Their clients were Ben’s brother Jessie and his wife Lauren, who are also expecting. In the exclusive clip below, Erin explains she’s due just three weeks before her sister-in-law. “Our family is growing all of a sudden,” she says.

This makes me even happier because his brother Jessie is a sweetheart as well.  I can’t wait to watch tonight. (we record all of it)

Congrats to the new mama and dada!
