Erin Napier’s followers caught a rare glimpse into the Home Town star’s home life on September 6.

Erin, who recently gave birth to her second daughter, Mae, shared an adorable photo of her newborn on Instagram.

“Rainy days are my favorite at home,” Erin captioned a photo of Mae in her pillow lounger, with book-strewn shelves, a cozy chair, and dim lights in the background.

Naturally, given how infrequently Erin posts photos of her little one on social media, fans flocked to her comments feed. “She’s growing fast,” one user exclaimed. “Your home looks so welcoming and lovely,” another wrote. “So big already! She is precious,” another fan chimed in.

Erin, who also has a 3-year-old daughter named Helen, with husband Ben Napier, will only share photos where you can't see her childrens' faces. The HGTV starrevealed earlier this year why she feels it's important to keep her children out of the limelight, and their faces off social media.

"It's an awful feeling to have millions of people pick apart an image of your baby's face," Erin wrote in an Instagram story in January 2021. "It's an awful feeling to see a photo of your child used to promote some sort of overseas kids clothing company. It's unsettling when strangers visiting Laurel to see our Home Town (thank y'all for doing that, btw) see her out with a grandmother and reach out to embrace her when she doesn't know them.

"We are the protectors of her image. Without Helen, our lives would be hollow and there would be nothing to share. She exists and we are proud of her," she continued. "But her likeness is ours to protect and decide when it's okay to share, no one else's. That's our personal choice, and it's not the same for everyone."

Amen, Erin!
