As seen on "Home Town," Ben and Erin Napier work together to completely renovate homes.

HGTV stars Erin and Ben Napier are adding on a new addition to their home: A baby girl named Mae.

Erin Napier announced their family’s new arrival Sunday on Instagram with a series of polaroid photos of a newborn with the caption “Mae ?.” People magazine exclusively reported that the baby arrived Friday morning.

“While we are excited to have another daughter to love, we are more excited to see the bond she and Helen will have. They’re already so in love with each other,” the couple said in a statement to People. 

USA TODAY has reached out to the Napiers’ representatives for further confirmation. 

This is the second child for the Napiers, who married in 2008 and have starred on their home renovation show “Home Town” since 2016. They also have a 3-year-old daughter named Helen. 

The official Instagram account for HGTV congratulated the family on their newborn, commenting “Welcome to the HGTV family Mae!” on Erin Napier’s post Sunday.

JAIPUR: Rajasthan Health Minister Parsadi Lal Meena on Wednesday asked officials to increase COVID-19 testing and speed up the vaccination drive in the state as the tally of active cases of the disease crossed the 200-mark.

He held a meeting with senior officials and reviewed the department’s preparedness in view of the apprehension of a possible third wave of the disease.

Meena asked the officials to increase testing, ensure 100 per cent coverage of the first dose of the vaccine by December-end and speed up the drive to administer the second dose to the beneficiaries.

The minister also asked them to disburse the compensation for the deaths due to the disease as soon as possible.

It was informed in the meeting that 84 per cent of beneficiaries have received the first dose of the vaccine and 54 per cent have got the second dose.

Meena directed the officials to conduct door-to-door vaccination and motivate the general public to take the second dose.

Twenty-one COVID-19 cases were reported in the state on Wednesday, with the maximum of 10 cases being from Jaipur.

Two cases each were reported from Alwar, Jodhpur and Nagaur, and one each from Ajmer, Bhilwara, Bikaner, Sikar and Udaipur.

With this, the number of active cases has increased to 203. So far, a total of 9,54,806 people have tested Covid positive in the state. The death toll stands at 8,955 and the count of recoveries is at 9,45,648.

Braziel, who co-founded the theater troupe with Collin Selman, serves as the production’s stage manager with Luann Jennings as its director. Performances are scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Dec. 10-11, and 2 p.m. Sunday and Dec. 12, at Jubilee Theatre, 1319 N. 15th St. In keeping with another Silent House mission, the Friday night performances will be translated into sign language. Tickets are $15 and available through Silent House’s website, silenthousetheatre.com.

Waco Civic Theatre starts its holiday lineup on Thursday with its production of Barbara Robinson’s “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” in a four-performance run directed by Tredessa Thomas.

The show, which concerns a church’s Nativity pageant that unwinds when it includes a rowdy bunch of siblings in its casting, is the first of three holiday shows by the community theater.

After this weekend’s production, the WCT will stage “A Little House Christmas,” directed by Krystal Marshall, and “The Most Wonderful Show of the Year,” written and directed by Melissa Green.

Executive director Eric Shephard said the triple-billed December wasn’t intentional, but developed from an overflow of actors and directors interested in doing something for the holidays after a prolonged pandemic break from the stage. “It’s sort of like, ‘Let’s do all the theater we can manage to do,'” he said. “It’s hard to say no to an opportunity when it arose.”
