Erin Napier knows she’s “lucky” to have Ben.
Her Instagram post shows Ben feeding Mae contentedly, captioned “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.” Ben seems like a very doting and loving father and husband and Erin is exceedingly grateful.
She also explained the importance of reminding spouses how valued their work is and gave a few examples, writing “And I have kissed him every time he’s in arm’s reach because I know exactly how lucky we all are. ???? A reminder for those with spouses: tell them often – ‘thank you for everything you do for us.’ and MEAN IT.”
Erin Napier’s words were not lost on her husband, who commented “Thank you for EVERYTHING you do for us, lover.” on her post. The support between the two of them is admirable.
The couple’s first daughter, Helen, is excited to be a sister.
Helen, 3, is shaping up to be a great big sister. Ben and Erin Napier opened up to People Magazine in May about how they had high hopes for their older daughter. They explained how attached Helen was to Mae even before she was born, saying, “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!”
Now that Mae is here, their connection has only strengthened. On May 31, Ben snapped a cute photo of his daughters, captioning it, “This is a very memorable Memorial Day weekend for me and my girls” with the accompanying hashtags, “#bigsgirls” and “#memorialmae”.
