"Home Town" stars Erin and Ben Napier are about to become parents again. 

For eight months the couple has managed to keep the pregnancy a secret, but on Sunday they finally announced that baby No. 2 is on the way. In an Instagram post, Erin revealed that "in just a few weeks" they will be welcoming their second daughter. She and Ben also share 3-year-old Helen.

"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," Erin captioned a video montage of their first daughter.

"Last spring, I put away the changing table supplies because I no longer had an infant," she continued. "I put it away in the guest room closet and then I cried because I thought how lonesome Helen must feel up there in her crib beside an empty room every night."

Erin then recalled seeing her father and brother standing beside her grandmother's grave and saw how they strengthened each other. That moment made her realize she wanted her daughter to have a sibling. 

"And we wanted that for Helen. Someone to stand with her when we can’t someday," she wrote, adding that there was also a cousin on the way. According to Entertainment Tonight, Ben's brother Jessie and his wife Lauren are also expecting. 

"We are so thankful. Even in our celebrating, I’m thinking of the would-be parents waiting for their own babies," Erin wrote. "For many it can be such a long and difficult journey and I pray for strength for you if that’s where you are. God answers in His own time, not ours, awfully hard as that can be. Sending so much love to y’all today."

Ben shared the same video to his Instagram account and wrote about his own experience growing up with siblings.

"I grew up with built-in best friends. My 3 brothers and I speak our own language and know the dance when it’s time to move a piano into a house together," he wrote. "Helen will have that with her little sister. It makes me even happier to know that there’ll be another Napier baby right around the corner from us."

Ben added that he could not wait for their family to expand.

"There was a time when @erinapier and I didn’t know if we would have kids," he wrote. "I would’ve been happy with just the 2 of us, or just the 3 of us, but I can’t wait to see the 4 of us."
