Erin Napier and her husband, Ben Napier, have been involved in revitalizing people’s homes in their hometown of Laurel, Mississippi, which could be seen on HGTV’s Home Town.

Now their show is expanding as they join hands with 15 renovation experts from other HGTV shows in the new Home Town spinoff series Home Town Kickstart. Those experts include Brian and Mika Kleinschmidt, Carmine Sabetella and Mike Pyle, Jasmine Roth, Alison Victoria, and more.

Home Town Kickstart has already premiered on HGTV, with its season premiere on Sunday, April 24, 2022. The Napier duo has a lot to do with a new show in hand. Fortunately, they have been doing this long enough and know their job very well.

Besides, they had started to put a new makeover in their hometown before even starring on HGTV’s Home Town. But what’s more fascinating than their professional lives is their togetherness — a relationship that started way early in their lives.

Here is a complete timeline of Erin and Ben Napier’s relationship!

December 2004

The now-married couple first met each other while attending Jones County Junior College. In an Instagram post on December 12, 2019, Erin recalled the moment she met her future husband.

She wrote, “On December 7, 2004, [Ben] and I met in our college yearbook room about the feature story we were writing about him. I was the design editor and for two years had noticed him, always the center of attention, everyone’s best friend, my biggest crush.”

“December 8, we took the photos for the yearbook. On December 9, we went on our first date and he met my mama. December 10, we looked at the Christmas lights in Mason Park. December 13, we decided we would get married someday.”

At the end of the caption, she mentioned what she wrote might sound crazy to some, but it made perfect sense to her. Later, the two transferred to Ole Miss [University of Mississippi] and graduated in 2007.

September 2007

On September 21, 2007, Ben did his best to propose to Erin in the best way he could. Erin had later shared the whole story in her blog, and it goes like this:

“Ben asked me to come with him to Square Books so he could get a book for a class. It was his birthday weekend. My roommates said they needed to go there too and asked to come along. Ben went upstairs to ‘look for his book’ while I, Mallorie, Jennifer, Rebecca, and Josh browsed the books downstairs.”

“Jennifer handed me a little handmade leather-bound book and told me to read it. It was the story of an unlikely couple who met in college and fell in love fast. I had no idea it was about us at first. Then the couple began sounding a lot like us. Then it was us.”

After that realization, Erin was shaking and anticipating what would happen. When she turned the last page, it said to come upstairs if she wanted to know the rest of the story.

She walked up to the balcony where Ben was standing. “He took my hand and tried to speak, but he began to cry, and so did I. So he leaned down to my ear and whispered this: “You know how much I love you?”

The blog continued, “…And you know I will always take care of you…I talked to mammaw (my grandmother)… and in the words of James Rasberry, ‘I’ve got something for you.'” Then he got down on one knee and said, ‘Will you marry me?’

Erin couldn’t say yes enough or cry enough, and as per her, it was the most shocking and beautiful moment of her life. Her answer, in the end, was always going to be yes, which she said, and the two got engaged.

November 2008

After their graduation, the couple had initially thought of never returning to their hometown. However, Erin and Ben had a change of heart and decided to return and make their hometown more appealing to themselves and other people.

Sometime after their graduation, they decided to legalize their bond. So, on November 22, 2008, Erin and Ben walked down the aisle to share the wedding vows in front of close friends and family members at the University of Mississippi’s Paris Yates Chapel.

On the couple’s 13th wedding anniversary, Erin shared some never seen pictures from her wedding day. She wrote, “13 years ago we became family then went to NYC for Thanksgiving.”

“Every year on our anniversary week, I’m so very thankful for you and the life we’ve made together. Thank you for loving me,” she added.

The couple is still going strong even after more than 13 years of marriage. Besides, Ben is still so in love with Erin that he writes some sweet letters every morning to his wife.

He told People, “Erin is my dream girl. Why would I not continue to court her and win her over every day? That’s always my goal.”

January 2016

Around four years after their marriage, in 2012, Erin and Ben had already settled into their married life and fully completed several renovations on their house in Mississippi.

At the time, Erin was working as a wedding stationery designer, and Ben served as a youth minister. But after they completed the necessary renovations on their home, they decided to switch their career paths.  

By June 2014, they had made a name for themselves in their hometown for their works in house makeover. The two gained more popularity after their works on their home was featured by Southern Weddings.

Those pictures eventually reached the eyes of an HGTV executive who started to follow Erin on Instagram. The executive was reported to be producer Lindsey Weidhorn who fell in love even more with the duo’s small town thanks to the #ILiveInLaurel hashtag Erin used.

Thus, Lindsey decided to reach out to the couple and pitched them the idea of filming a series in their hometown. Erin and Ben initially thought that Lindsey was in contact with them to buy stationery – they owned a stationery company at the time.

But they didn’t realize that Lindsey was trying to put them on television screens. Upon realization, Erin initially thought that the show wouldn’t be a big deal. “We didn’t think it would be possible,” she said in an interview.

“Why would it be possible to make a TV show in a town like Laurel, Mississippi? We love it very much, but that doesn’t mean everyone else would. So we had fun and never had any expectations.”

But, just three seasons later, her reaction had changed. She said, “I don’t think you can ever anticipate something like this. It is such a happy surprise.” And with the show’s success, Erin and Ben’s life has also changed tremendously.

January 2018

Erin had suffered from a perforated appendix and underwent surgery to have it removed years ago. Due to the same reason, she and her partner were never so sure they could welcome children into their family.

However, that changed when Erin gave birth to her first child with Ben, a baby daughter named Helen, in January 2018.

A few months before their daughter’s birth, in October 2017, Erin had opened up to Us Weekly about her husband’s help during her pregnancy. She said, “He doesn’t let me do anything! He’s so generous.”

Additionally, she stated that her partner has always been like that, and his helpful nature had gone into overdrive since they found out about the baby.

May 2021

In May 2021, the married duo welcomed their second child, another daughter named Mae. Initially, they had kept the news upto themselves only but decided to finally make it public in January 2021.

At the time, Ben told US Weekly, “We kind of put that in God’s hands. We weren’t trying to get pregnant with Helen and it happened. If that’s what God wants for us, then it’ll happen again.”

Before their second daughter’s birth, the two had gone through a “period of grieving.” Erin told Today Parents, “I was just grieving our time as a family of three and thinking, ‘It will never be like this again.’”

But everything changed when they welcomed their second child. “All of our worries were unfounded. It feels like Mae was always there,” she added.

Similarly, the parents of two spent some time adjusting to the changes when Mae entered their life. In an Instagram post, Erin revealed that she didn’t have the time to figure out anything or even cook real food until their second daughter was seven weeks old.

Thankfully, she was able to sort things out. And Ben was always there to support his wife in those circumstances — about which Erin has highly spoken of in multiple Instagram posts.

March 2022

With one toddler and a newborn in hand, it’s not so easy for Erin and Ben to take some time off for themselves only. In an exclusive interview with US Weekly in March 2022, Erin talked about the same topic.

She first said, “It’s just a non-negotiable, every night at 7:30 the girls are in bed, then that’s our time to be us.” Erin also mentioned that another way to spend time with her husband was their work, which allowed them to see each other in the daytime.

“We have that advantage that I think a lot of couples don’t have. Some people must drive each other crazy being together all day, but it’s the only way we’ve ever [done it],” she added.

April 2022

Erin further talked about how tough it gets during supper time with two little kids in her Instagram post of April 27, 2022.

She had shared a selfie of herself and wrote about it while also adding some humor in the middle. “The supper time shuffle is no joke with two little ones,” she first wrote.

“I’m figuring out that Helen can help me cook (she loses interest after about 20 minutes of chopping the soft vegetables with a butter knife, but it’s so fun while it lasts — elbow to elbow making a meal with my big girl)….”

“…while Mae sits beside us in her high chair having her supper via baby charcuterie, one food at a time: raspberries, blueberries, tomatoes, black beans, rice, goldfish, literally anything else I put on her tray.”

Erin ended her caption by asking her followers what’s their secret for making it from 5 p.m to bedtime with busy babies and hungry bellies.

Logan Lerman Sealed the Deal with a Heartwarming Proposal

Logan Lerman is officially engaged since November 2023.



Logan Lerman Sealed the Deal with a Heartwarming Proposal

Love was in the air for Logan Lerman as the talented actor took a significant step in his personal life. After years of a blissful relationship, he finally popped the question to his longtime girlfriend, Analuisa Corrigan, in November 2023. 

The Percy Jackson star sealed the deal with a heartwarming proposal, officially taking their romance to the next level. Fans and well-wishers alike eagerly await the details of this romantic milestone as the couple prepares to embark on marital bliss.

 In this article, we delve into the captivating tale of Lerman’s proposal, their relationship, and the woman who has captured his heart.

Logan Lerman opened up about his proposal to Analusia Corrigan

Lerman recently opened up about the charming way he proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Corrigan. 

During an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the 32-year-old actor shared the delightful details of how he popped the question in an unconventional yet romantic setting – a rowboat in New York City’s iconic Central Park.

He revealed that while in New York, he initially had no concrete plan for the proposal but soon realized he needed a private and intimate setting.

Corrigan, 29, pointed out the rowboats; he thought it would be a perfect idea but discovered that he lacked the necessary rowing skills.

He described how his fiancée ended up doing all the hard work, rowing the boat. At the same time, he sat back and enjoyed the scenery.

As they drew the attention of onlookers amused by the sight of Corrigan manning the oars, he bided his time until they reached a secluded part of the lake.

In that tranquil moment, surrounded by the beauty of Central Park, Lerman seized the opportunity and popped the question to his beloved. 

Despite the initial challenges, the proposal went smoothly. Lerman’s heartwarming tale beautifully captures the essence of love, spontaneity, and the willingness to embrace unexpected moments that make memories truly special.

After the heartwarming proposal in Central Park, Lerman and his fiancée, Corrigan, made a stunning red carpet appearance, celebrating their love and future together. 

On March 21, the couple graced the premiere of Hulu’s We Were the Lucky Ones in Los Angeles, radiating joy and complementing each other perfectly with their coordinated looks.

Lerman, known for his role in Bullet Train, cut a dashing figure in a sleek black overcoat and dress pants, adding a touch of sophistication with a silver silk shirt. Meanwhile, Corrigan, stunned in a chic black bandeau dress, exuding elegance and confidence.

Their red carpet debut as an engaged couple came four months after Corrigan took to Instagram to share the exciting news of Lerman’s proposal. 

In a heartfelt post, she playfully referred to her future husband as “Mrs. Logie,” accompanied by a series of endearing snapshots, including a photo booth strip capturing their loving embrace and a close-up video showcasing the exquisite engagement ring.

Lerman, clearly smitten, responded with a sweet comment, expressing his love for his “sweetie.” 

Who is Analusia Corrigan?

Lerman’s fiancée, Corrigan, is a talented artist whose journey has been shaped by her diverse cultural experiences and the unwavering support of her family. 

Growing up in San Diego, her frequent road trips to Mexico with her mother instilled in her a deep appreciation for culture, which she later incorporated into her art.

It was her father’s work with the renowned Alvin Ailey dance company in New York City that ignited a new creative spark within her. She viewed the crew as a “window to real people in real life,” an experience she didn’t have on the West Coast. 

Her parents played a pivotal role in nurturing her artistic aspirations, always ensuring that she understood the value of the arts and that being an artist was a viable career path.

Her artistic pursuits led her to enroll at the Parsons School of Design, where she initially studied oil painting but later pivoted to graphic design, realizing the challenges of succeeding in the former field. 

However, after graduation, Corrigan discovered that her true passion lay not in technology but in creating tangible works with her hands.

It was during the COVID-19 pandemic that Corrigan found her calling in ceramic art, initially selling ashtrays and mugs with unique designs. Her work explores “figurative shapes and their innate matter, language and sensation,” as described on her website. 

From lamps and mirrors to wall hangings, Corrigan’s creations are a testament to her talent and dedication.

Now displaying her art at shows and during New York City’s design week, Corrigan has garnered a steady stream of clients. She remains grateful for the opportunity to have her creations grace the intimate spaces of people’s homes. 

Logan Lerman’s relationship timeline with Analusia Corrigan

Lerman and Corrigan’s relationship timeline is a heartwarming tale of love that blossomed from a long-distance connection into a deep, lasting bond. 

The couple first sparked romance rumors in January 2020 when they were linked together. However, they kept their relationship relatively private in its early stages.

It wasn’t until August 2022 that Lerman and Corrigan made their red carpet debut as a couple at the premiere of Bullet Train, marking a significant milestone in their journey together. 

Despite the initial distance, with Corrigan residing in New York City and Lerman in Los Angeles, they found a way to make their relationship thrive.

She has provided glimpses into their life together through her Instagram account, which is primarily dedicated to showcasing her exceptional work as a ceramic artist. 

However, she occasionally shares endearing snaps of Lerman, who sometimes lends a helping hand in her studio, highlighting the supportive and collaborative nature of their partnership.

Lerman, too, has been unafraid to express his adoration for Corrigan publicly. In December 2021, he penned a heartfelt tribute on her 27th birthday, referring to her as his “best friend” and expressing his gratitude for having her in his life, making every day “better and brighter.”

Then, during one of Corrigan’s visits to Los Angeles, the lockdown occurred, leading her to extend her stay with Lerman and allowing them to strengthen their bond further.

Over the past three years, Lerman and Corrigan have embraced adventures together, exploring the world hand in hand. 

From hiking in the Pacific Northwest to immersing themselves in the beauty of Italy, their love has flourished amidst breathtaking landscapes and new experiences.

As their relationship deepened, they reached significant milestones, such as attending Lerman’s co-star Joey King’s wedding in Mallorca together in 2023. 

Their commitment culminated in Lerman’s heartwarming proposal to Corrigan in November 2023, marking the beginning of a new chapter in their enduring love story.

Fans are curious about Leslie Fhima’s dating life in the aftermath of ‘The Golden Bachelor’



Leslie Fhima’s Love Life Updates Post ‘The Golden Bachelor'

Leslie Fhima captured the hearts of Bachelor Nation when she appeared on Season 1 of The Golden Bachelor. The fan-favorite contestant made it to the final few, vying for Gerry Turner’s heart, only to leave heartbroken. 

Since her emotional exit, fans have been eager to know what’s next in Fhima’s quest for love. This article provides an exclusive glimpse into Fhima’s dating life after the show, sharing the latest updates on her romantic pursuits. 

Leslie Fhima’s dating life update

Since her heartbreaking exit from The Golden Bachelor, Fhima has been focusing on various aspects of her life, leaving little room for dating and romantic pursuits.

The fan-favorite contestant admitted that she hadn’t been actively seeking out potential partners or going on dates recently. Contrary to speculation, she clarified that she’s not currently involved with anyone romantically, dismissing rumors about her new relationship.

While her dating life has taken a backseat for now, Fhima remains open to finding her perfect match when the time is right. Her experience on the reality show has taught her valuable lessons about what truly matters in a partner.

Rather than seeking someone who ticks every box on her checklist, she now prioritizes shared values, compatibility, and the potential for a deep, lasting connection.

When she does decide to dive back into the dating pool, Fhima plans to approach it with a more open mindset, focusing less on superficial traits and more on the essential qualities that foster a meaningful, lifelong partnership. 

Her ultimate goal is to find a best friend and companion to grow old with, someone who loves and accepts her family as she does theirs.

Despite the lack of dating updates, Fhima continues to receive an outpouring of support and love from her dedicated fan base, who have been rooting for her happily ever after since her time on The Golden Bachelor.

Leslie Fhima’s journey on ‘The Golden Bachelor’

Fhima’s appearance on the inaugural season of The Golden Bachelor left a lasting impression on viewers, who were instantly captivated by her positive attitude and endearing personality. 

Her connection with the lead, Gerry Turner, seemed promising, and many fans were rooting for her to emerge as the last woman standing and potentially become the next “Golden Bachelorette.”

However, despite their apparent compatibility, there was a missing element in their relationship that ultimately led to their emotional split.

Fhima, who had been convinced she would be Turner’s final choice, was left heartbroken when he decided to pursue a future with another contestant, Theresa Nist.

In the months following her departure from the show, she demonstrated remarkable resilience and growth, allowing herself to heal from the heartbreak. 

She even attended Turner and Nist’s live televised wedding alongside her fellow Golden Bachelor castmates, a testament to her ability to move forward gracefully.

Leslie Fhima’s feelings about the Golden Wedding of her season

Despite the initial heartbreak of not being the final pick, Fhima approached Turner’s televised wedding to Nist with a positive and supportive mindset. 

While the event itself wasn’t uncomfortable for her, she did feel a sense of added pressure due to the public anticipation surrounding her reactions.

As someone who had formed a close friendship with Nist during their time together on the show, she was determined to keep the focus solely on the happy couple and their special day. 

She had already achieved closure regarding her split from Turner, allowing her to attend the wedding with genuine happiness for the newlyweds.

In Leslie’s own words, she truly believes that things unfolded as they were meant to, even though it was difficult to see that perspective while she was still immersed in the experience. 

With the benefit of hindsight, she has come to accept that her connection with Turner was not meant to be a lasting one.

However, this realization hasn’t diminished her hope of finding her own forever love. In fact, she remains optimistic that she, too, will eventually find the right partner – someone with whom she can share a deep, meaningful connection and build a future together.

Leslie Fhima’s recent dating rumors 

While Fhima’s journey on The Golden Bachelor didn’t culminate in a romantic partnership, her newfound fame has opened doors to exciting experiences and encounters with notable personalities. 

One such instance garnered significant attention when she shared photos of herself meeting the renowned rapper 50 Cent at a Minnesota Timberwolves basketball game.

Her Instagram post, which featured snapshots of her, the rapper, and her family, sparked speculation among fans about a potential romantic connection between the two. 

However, Fhima was quick to clarify that the meetup was merely a thrilling opportunity to interact with a celebrity, and there was no romantic involvement whatsoever.

This wasn’t the first time she found herself at the center of dating rumors. Earlier in February, she posted a picture with a man named Greg, her pickleball partner, leading to further speculation about her relationship status. 

Once again, she addressed the rumors head-on, asserting that while she values her male friendships deeply, none of these connections are romantic.

In fact, Fhima candidly admitted that she hasn’t been actively dating recently, despite the assumptions and gossip circulating online. 

Her focus is on other aspects of her life, such as her family, friends, and personal interests, leaving little room for romantic pursuits at the moment.

Leslie Fhima’s past relationships

Fhima has been married twice. Her first marriage was to Bradley Craig Chazin in 1980, with whom she had a son named Zack. According to records, she and Chazin divorced in 1988 when she was 29 years old. 

Despite the divorce, she maintained a cordial relationship with her former father-in-law, Milton Chazin, whom she described as a positive influence in her son’s life.

Her second marriage was to David Jonathan Fhima, a restaurateur of Moroccan heritage. Leslie and David tied the knot in 1990 in Los Angeles and had two children together, Eli and Chloe. 

However, their marriage was tumultuous, with records indicating they divorced in 1994, reconciled, and then divorced again in 1998. The divorce proceedings involved disputes over child support and custody arrangements.

Apart from her marriages, she is rumored to have dated the iconic musician Prince in her late teens and early 20s. According to her son Eli, she not only dated Prince but also broke up with him to pursue her figure skating career with the Ice Follies. 

The Golden Bachelor show even claims that Prince’s song ‘Sexy Dancer’ was inspired by her, although this cannot be verified.

Then, in the late 2000s and early 2010s, Fhima was involved with an unnamed man, as evidenced by several photos on her old Instagram account where she referred to him as “my guy.” 

Fhima’s relationship history is undoubtedly complex, with multiple marriages, romantic involvements, and even a rumored connection to a music legend.
