This past Monday, Erin poked fun at how despite carrying at 32 weeks — you can’t really tell!
“32 weeks. I know it’s weird,” writes Erin in her latest post to Instagram, whose expecting a daughter with husband Ben Napier.
“Helen hid the same way right up until the day she was born. ????,” Erin added of Ben’s 3-year-old daughter.
Erin and Ben, who married in 2008, revealed this past Sunday they are expecting a second baby together.
The couple learned the happy news in September while 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 joked.
Added Erin, “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.”
Ben and Erin revealed the big news on Sunday night’s episode of Home Town, which also featured their clients – Ben’s brother Jessie and his wife Lauren – who are also expecting.
The two celebrated the pregnancy news in separate Instagram posts. “I grew up with built-in best friends. My 3 brothers and I speak our own language and know the dance when it’s time to move a piano into a house together. Helen will have that with her little sister. It makes me even happier to know that there’ll be another Napier baby right around the corner from us. There was a time when @erinapier and I didn’t know if we would have kids. I would’ve been happy with just the 2 of us, or just the 3 of us, but I can’t wait to see the 4 of us,” said Ben.
“We are so thankful,” Erin wrote. “Even in our celebrating, I’m thinking of the would-be parents waiting for their own babies. For many it can be such a long and difficult journey and I pray for strength for you if that’s where you are. God answers in His own time, not ours, awfully hard as that can be. Sending so much love to y’all today.”
