Happy birthday, Ben Napier! The “Home Town” star celebrated his 38th trip around the sun on Friday, Sept. 24.
Unsurprisingly, his wife and HGTV co-star, Erin Napier, was there to celebrate with him. And, according to PEOPLE, she chose to mark the special occasion with a collection of throwback photos posted on social media.
Four of the photos a younger Ben and Erin embracing and having fun. They are all smiles and appear to be very much in love. Another photo is a solo shot of Ben holding pom-poms at what appears to be an Ole Miss game. This is another solo shot of Ben, with much longer hair in this photo, smiling in front of a Christmas tree.
The last two photos are the cutest of all. One is of Ben as a young boy. The other is of him as a toddler and he is wearing an adorable tie and vest combo. You can check out the photos below.
In addition to the sweet collection of throwback photos, “Home Town” star Erin Napier also wished Ben Napier a happy birthday in the accompanying caption on Instagram. “We’ve spent 16 of your 38 birthdays together, and I’m thankful for every one of them, that we had the luck of growing up together,” Erin began the caption.
She then included a reference to their two daughters. “Your girls all love you more than pancakes and Elvis. Happy birthday, Big Ben,” Erin also shared.
The two children of the “Home Town” stars are 3-year-old Helen and baby girl Mae. Ben and Erin welcomed Mae into the world on May 28 of this year.
