HGTV stars Erin and Ben Napier are expecting! The couple recently announced the pregnancy—and this May their family will grow from three to four.
2020 was a busy a year for the Napiers. While most of the country was stuck inside working from home, the husband and wife celeb pair was filming two shows at the same time: Home Town in Laurel, Mississippi and Home Town Takeover in Wetumpka, Alabama. Not only did the couple spend the fall working on two shows simultaneously, in September they also found out that Erin was pregnant.
In an interview with PEOPLE, Ben said, “The last six months of 2020 really, you know, it was rough. It’s all a blur.” Erin added, “We were like, ‘Ooh, this is going to be tough, but we can do it.’ We don’t remember anything, but I’m glad somebody was filming all of it.”
Erin and Ben officially announced the pregnancy on Home Town in a very special double reveal. Along with Erin’s baby news, they also shared another family pregnancy. Ben’s brother Jessie and his wife Lauren were featured on the episode as the couple’s clients—but that wasn’t all. They also announced their own pregnancy too.
Despite doubts that she could conceive, following a decade of abdominal pain brought on by a perforated appendix, Erin learned she was expecting the couple’s first child Helen in May of 2017. Four years later, in May of 2021, the family will welcome their second child!
