They’re putting up a good front, but Home Town stars Ben and Erin Napier are having a hard time juggling their careers and family life, an insider tells OK!.
With their smash hit show and its spinoff, Home Town: Ben’s Workshop, gearing up for a new season, the HGTV stars — who are parents to daughters Helen, 3, and 4-month-old Mae — “are working nonstop and it’s wearing them out,” spills the insider. “They barely have time to sleep, let alone relax."
Indeed, Erin herself recently admitted their third show, Home Town Takeover, won’t be coming back for a second season anytime soon.
“Their friends would like them to take a step back, but Erin and Ben don’t want to disappoint their fans," the insider reveals. "Still, there’s only so much they can do before they reach the breaking point!”
Despite being exhausted from work, it hasn't stopped Ben from excelling at his other job as a doting husband. One month after welcoming their second child in May, Erin posted a heartfelt tribute gushing over her hubby, as she wrote: "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."
"And I have kissed him every time he’s in arm’s reach because I know exactly how lucky we all are," the mother-of-two continued, before ending her post by telling other couples: "A reminder for those with spouses: tell them often — 'thank you for everything you do for us.' and MEAN IT."
Ben made it clear he appreciated his wife's kind words, taking to the comment section and writing: "Thank you for EVERYTHING you do for us, lover."
Ben and Erin aren't shy when it comes to flaunting their love for one another, as they've been attached at the hip since 2004. The father-of-two proposed to Erin on September 21, 2007, and the duo tied the knot on November 22, 2008.
As for Ben, he thinks it's a no brainer as to why he always wants to go above and beyond for the mother of his children. “Erin is my dream girl,” he said. “Why would I not continue to court her and win her over every day? That’s always my goal.”
