Erin Napier’s latest Instagram photo had fans doing a double take.

The HGTV star shared an image of her husband Ben wearing only light-colored shorts as he leans over a sprinkler and gets soaked by the water. The spray obscures much of the shirtless star's lower half, leading some flabbergasted fans to run to the comments.

“At first I thought Ben was enjoying the natural look!!!!!” one wrote, to which Erin replied, “khaki shorts!”

“I may have scrolled through the photos several times to verify Ben was NOT nude 😂,” read another comment.

“I wasn’t expecting a naked Ben in my feed! 😂. I’m sure he has shorts on but i had to double take!” another commenter said.

Erin explains in the caption that the photo was taken during an episode they filmed amid "the absolute most brutal heat wave I can remember in my lifetime. It was just so hot. So. HOT.”

This isn’t the first time Erin, 38, has shared a shirtless snap of Ben, however.

In September, she celebrated her husband’s 40th birthday with a photo showing off his upper body, writing that he’d “worked so hard” to transform himself after having shoulder surgery.

And earlier in 2023, she shared a photo of Ben building travel easels while topless.

More recently, Erin swooned over Ben driving a bulldozer.

In March, Erin shared two images to her Instagram Stories showing Ben standing in front of the machine and then driving it, writing, “Hottie alert.”

In another Home Town episode this season that had the couple feeling smitten, they visited Jones College, where they met and fell in love in 2004.

“This is where we met,” Erin said of their alma mater, which is about 13 minutes from their current home in Laurel, Miss. “We had our first date in the student union. Everyone on both sides of our family went to school here.”

Erin has even admitted that she once dated another guy in college because he “looked a little bit like Ben,” whom she had a crush on at the time.

The couple, who tied the knot in 2008 and now have two children, 6-year-old Helen and 2-year-old Mae, celebrated 15 years of marriage in November.

"I sometimes think of all the people in the world and how the earth is just this tiny dusty speck in the universe," Erin wrote in an Instagram post honoring their anniversary. "And somehow, we managed to find each other."

"Thank you, Lord, for 15 years in a marriage that feels like home and comfort and assurance and strength and LOVE," she continued. "We are so lucky to have found each other young and grown up around each other, forming these identities. I love you, 🥹❤️"
