On Instagram, Erin confirmed the arrival of the couple's second daughter. She posted a collage of photos on the social media platform, which included her husband posing with baby Mae. The Home Town star kept her caption for the post simple, as she wrote "Mae" along with a pink heart emoji and tagged Ben's Instagram account.
Erin and Ben first revealed that they were expecting another child a little over a month ago. At the time, they teased that an upcoming episode of Home Town would be a special one. Not only did the episode in question feature Ben's brother, Jesse, and his wife, Lauren, but it also featured Ben and Erin announcing the exciting news about their growing family. After the episode aired, Erin confirmed the news on Instagram by posting a video about her family. Her video came alongside a touching caption in which she explained that she and Ben wanted their daughter Helen to grow up with a sibling.
"By now most of you know that in just a few weeks we will be adding another little face to our home videos and photo albums. Just like Helen did, her little sister has made it easy to keep her secret by being tiny even now, and I'm deeply thankful that we've had almost 8 months of keeping this our news just for our family and close friends," the mom-of-two wrote at the time. She continued to share that she and Ben came around to the idea of having another child after she saw her father and uncle interact while visiting her grandmother's graveside.
Erin added, "Two men with many differences strengthened each other. Two men who knew her better than any of us ever could. Siblings do that, they know and remember and keep the stories of a family alive. And we wanted that for Helen."
