Get all the information on the latest member of the Bargain Block family.
Welcome to the World, Baby Beau
Shea Hicks Whitfield of HGTV has shared a post (@shea.whitfield)
Beau James Whitfield, Hicks-Whitfield's newborn son, was posted on Instagram on Aug. 4, revealing that he weighed 7 lbs. and 15 oz. at the birth.
We loved you before we knew you, according to the new mama. Even when there was just a chance for you, we loved you.
In her Instagram post, Hicks-Whitfield stated that her baby Beau would be born on July 29, but her husband revealed that he was about to become a dad that day, posting a series of photographs to his Instagram account, beginning with one outside Ascension Hospital near their Detroit home.
Whitfield states that in a matter of 90 minutes, I will hold my son for the first time for the first time. Ive been soaking up every moment (except right now to write this post) so I can tell him everything about what happened on his birth day. Now that's something to be excited about!
The dad-to-be shared photos of his very pregnant wife sitting on their front porch, holding a copy of Breathe, Mama, Breathe, and another of himself smiling broadly while holding their dog.
In her birth announcement message, which included photos of her thrilled mom and dad and their newborn, she referred to baby Beau as their Precious Rainbow Baby and used the hashtag #rainbowbaby, which is typically used to refer to babies born after the parents have suffered a miscarriage, stillbirth, or the death of an infant. Hicks-Whitfield has not talked publicly about such a loss.

The Bargain Block crew is taking a break after finishing 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 have been to Wisconsin, a home decor show in Las Vegas, and will be at the wholesale market NY Now, where they will present a talk entitled Creative Design Flair for Small Spaces.
Bargain Block will be renewed for a third season of HGTV, although Bynum has stated that it is very probable.
