Baby on board! Shea Hicks-Whitfield, the real estate expert on HGTV‘s hit show “Bargain Block,” just announced the birth of her first child. She and husband Terry Whitfield are parents to a baby boy they named Beau.

On Aug. 4, Hicks-Whitfield posted several photos on Instagram of her newborn son, Beau James Whitfield, sharing that he weighed 7 lbs., 15 oz. at birth.
The new mama wrote, “We loved you before we knew you. Even when there was just a hope for you, we loved you.”
Though Hicks-Whitfield didn’t provide a birthdate for baby Beau in her post, her husband shared on July 29 that he was about to become a dad that day, posting a series of photos to his Instagram account, beginning with one outside Ascension Hospital near their hometown of Detroit.
“In a little over 90 minutes, I will hold my son for the first time,” Whitfield wrote. “It’s a bit overwhelming and calming in the same breath. I’ve been soaking up every moment (except right now to make this post), so I can tell him about everything that happened on his born day. Gosh darnit, I’m about to be someone’s Dad for the rest of my life. Now that’s something to cheer about!”
The excited dad-to-be also shared photos of his very pregnant wife standing on their front porch with her eyes closed, holding a copy of the book “Breathe, Mama, Breathe,” and another of himself smiling widely while holding their dog.
In Hicks-Whitfield’s birth announcement post, which included photos of the thrilled mom and dad with their newborn, she called baby Beau their “Precious Rainbow Baby” and used the hashtag #rainbowbaby, which typically is a term given to babies born after the parents have suffered a miscarriage, stillbirth or the death of an infant. Hicks-Whitfield hasn’t talked publicly about such a loss.‘Bargain Block’ Fans & Colleagues Celebrate Baby Beau’s Arrival View this post on Instagram

The arrival of Baby Beau has fans and friends sending notes of congratulations, including his mom’s “Bargain Block” co-hosts Keith Bynum and Evan Thomas. Bynum shared Hicks-Whitfield’s birth announcement on his Instagram Stories, writing “a new precious pea to love.” Thomas did the same and wrote, “Meet BEAU everyone!” He added a disclaimer at the bottom: “And this is Shea’s baby, don’t get any crazy ideas” with a crying-laughing emoji.
Jenny Marrs, co-host of “Fixer To Fabulous” and the new “Hometown Takeover,” wrote, “SHEA!! He is perfect!!! Congratulations friend!! So happy for you!!” with a red heart emoji.
Actress Anika Noni Rose also wrote, “Congratulations!!!!”
The “Bargain Block” crew is currently taking some time off, after wrapping filming for Season 2 in July. Hicks-Whitfield obviously has her hands full with a newborn, and Bynum and Thomas are spending a lot of time on the road. In the past couple of weeks, they’ve had a family wedding in Wisconsin, a night on the town in Chicago, and made appearances at Vegas Market, a home decor show in Las Vegas. From Aug. 14 – 17, they’ll be at wholesale market NY Now, meeting home design exhibitors and giving a talk entitled “Creative Design Flair for Small Spaces.”
HGTV has not officially announced whether “Bargain Block” will be renewed for Season 3, but Bynum has alluded to it being very likely.

Fans Blast Jenelle Evans for Heavily-Filtered Look: ‘What You Ordered on Wish vs. What You Get’
Getty "Teen Mom" star Jenelle Evans attends a fashion event.
“Teen Mom” star Jenelle Evans has been getting a rise out of show viewers for years, sometimes intentionally and sometimes not. Franchise fans do not mince words when it comes to Evans, and that was definitely the case with a recent Instagram post she shared. The mom of three was going for a sultry look, but not everybody was impressed over by her approach.
Here’s what you need to know:Evans Seemed Thrilled With Her Finished Look View this post on Instagram
A post shared by Jenelle Evans (@j_evans1219)
On August 16, Evans shared a short video on her Instagram page, and she captioned it “CLEANEST TRANSITION EVER.” She also shared a still shot of the look on her Instagram stories that included a link to her OnlyFans page. It only took a few hours for “Teen Mom” fans to go wild over the look on Reddit, with no shortage of jokes made. In fact, some Redditors went all-out in expressing their opinions.
“Heeeeeeeeehaw she is completely vacant. Nobody’s been living there for some time now, the lights aren’t even on. Dead eyes. Imagine that being your mother,” critiqued one person.
“Is she going for the 80s pornstar look?” wondered someone.
“Did she let Ensley do her makeup or what?” questioned another “Teen Mom” fan, referring to Evans’ daughter.
“What you ordered on wish vs. what you get,” joked a fourth Redditor. Others joked about Evans providing a fabulous “Instagram vs. Reality” comparison. Evans’ eyeliner, in particular, stood out to many critics, and her brows attracted a fair amount of attention as well.Evans’ Extreme Look Seemingly Did Her No Favors
Across several threads of comments, there seemed to be virtually no positive commentary regarding Evans’ attempt at a sultry look.
“Well that’s covered the whole spectrum of scariness,” admitted another Reddit critic.
“The filters are doing work today,” quipped another poster who shared the Instagram story version of Evans’ latest look. The “Teen Mom” star included an over-the-top spicy caption with the Instagram story as she hyped her OnlyFans page, and some felt it provided frightening imagery. There were makeup critiques and references to her parenting, and at least a couple of “Teen Mom” fans brought up daughter Ensley’s recent medical situation.
“I guess Ensley isn’t sick anymore,” noted one Redditor.
“Right?? Like why couldn’t she at least make a separate account to post her promos on so she’s not going directly from ‘my small child has the stomach flu’ to ‘I can get your d*** up inside me’?? I felt sick just typing those in the same sentence,” agreed another critic.
“My kid just got out of hospital. I’ll post thirst traps and do OF and ignore her. I’d love to know wtf goes across the two braincells she has,” declared someone else.
Just a matter of hours prior to sharing her heavily filtered wild look, Evans shared with “Teen Mom” fans that Ensley was in the hospital. It seemed the 5-year-old had the stomach flu, and fans ripped into Evans for posting a photo of the little girl in a hospital bed. Evans later shared another photo of Ensley and said she had gone from sick to “spoiled,” and that sparked an additional round of criticism for the controversial “Teen Mom” star.
