Erin Napier, 32, the star of HGTV’s “Home Town,” announced in October she and husband Ben were expecting their first child together this winter.


As Dearly previously reported, Napier confirmed the news on her blog after posting a picture with college sweetheart Ben, 34, on Instagram in which Napier rested her hand on her growing belly.


Napier admitted she was initially terrified of the two pink lines discovered in May of this year but has since felt “overwhelming relief” at the prospect of becoming a mother.

The “Home Town” star recently took to Instagram to share a 3-D ultrasound of her baby with fans, writing that for two days, her baby had been kicking underneath her ribs, stretching her belly so a little foot is visible. “MAN it’s weird being pregnant,” Napier partially captioned her photo.

In addition to the flurry of activity, Napier also pointed out her baby’s unmistakable lips, a trait Napier said her baby got from her — which she got from her own father:


“For two days, this tiny person who has my exact lips that I inherited from my daddy has been pushing her tiny 2″ foot so hard just under my ribs it sticks way out and looks sci-fi then disappears,” Napier wrote.


Napier told Us Weekly that although “Home Town” centers around renovating homes across Laurel, Mississippi, husband Ben sees to it his wife gets as much rest as possible:

“He doesn’t let me do anything! Not one thing. He treats me like I’m the most delicate little flower.”

She added: “He’s just so gracious and generous but he’s always been that way.”


She said: “It’s just gone into total overdrive since we found out about the baby.”
