Nice from the house
Hometown stars Erin and Ben Napier never set out to become famous. Despite hosting one of HGTV's most popular shows, they stay grounded. For one, Erin announced last month that she would be spending less time on social media.
"The more I learn about social media, the more it scares me," she wrote on Instagram at the time. "So I'll try to spend less time here. People weren't designed to know the opinions of thousands or even hundreds of their 'friends'. The real world is a much more beautiful place to be honest."
In a recent interview, the Napiers revealed the worst part about fame: protecting their young daughter from it.
"The worst part about fame is finding ways to protect Helen from it," Ben told Atlanta magazine. "When we go out as a family it's difficult to make sure people aren't trying to take their picture. We're very grateful that people love the show and are happy to see us, but we also need to remember that Helen didn't sign up for it. "
"We know we can't give Helen the childhood we had because of our careers and how our lives have changed," added Ben. "But we still want to provide her with a loving group of parents who are present and protect her."
One way the Napiers will prioritize Helen? They know how to say an important word, "No."
"Work is never more important than Helen," Erin told the magazine.
