- Home Town star Erin Napier is at it again with another honest and relatable message.
- The designer posted an important note on Instagram about motherhood, and fans loved it.
Erin Napier is quickly becoming our favorite spokesperson.
The Home Town star and mom of one has been very candid on social media lately, calling out people for all kinds of things like criticizing her fridge or having a negative attitude on her page. This time, she’s addressing an even more sensitive issue.
Erin took to Instagram to speak openly about women, specifically the assumptions some make about motherhood. The gist of it is, the question “Why not just have a baby?” is often asked to those who express wanting more children or wishing their little ones wouldn’t grow up as fast. And the HGTV host, quite frankly, is over it. Take a look at her full message:
“Why not just have a baby? It’s such an innocuous, harmless seeming thing to offer a mama who’s missing the sweetness of babyhood as her toddler grows up. And it seems so simple to offer that same advice to the couple who’ve been married 10 years. The truth is rarely that simple. There are women I love who want babies desperately and their bodies won’t let them. Women grieving miscarriages that happen in secret. Couples trying to adopt, who keep finding disappointment through fostering when the baby is given back to drug-addicted mothers. People awaiting trips overseas to bring home a baby that feels like it will never come because of travel bans. Mothers in their 30s whose bodies have stopped making another baby an option suddenly. Please, I gently urge you. Think of those people before you offer that advice. That simple question can be so very hard to answer sometimes.❤️”
Fans really connected to her caption. Even Morgane Stapleton left her a heart emoji! Some shared experiences similar to what Erin mentioned, while others apologized for being “one of those that left that sort of comment.” Erin appreciated those notes, replying to one with, “Don’t be sorry! Everyone does it.”
Though Erin can’t fix all the world’s problems, we’re here for her refreshingly honest take on these tough topics.
