Erin Napier isn't planning on expanding her family anytime soon.

In a message shared on her Instagram Stories on Tuesday, April 17, the HGTV star, 38, denied speculation that she is expecting a baby. "Thoughts from an exhausted mama after one child had a stomach bug weekend," Napier begins her post.

"1. bluey 4ever (watched the sign 3 times, cried out eyes out. #heirloomrooms) 2. not expecting a baby. medically not capable, so please give that a rest? we don't need a son to be complete as a family and i just like loose clothes. let it beeeeeee, you sweet people."

"3. i eat too many grillo's pickles, it's an addiction. i want to do better and eat less sodium (i guess) but not that bad 🤗 4. god bless who has sanitized so much laundry with me this weekend," Erin wrote, tagging her husband Ben Napier.

The couple is parents to daughters Mae, 2½, and Helen, 6.

Erin and Ben have been vocal about not letting their kids use social media until they reach high school age, sharing some of their reasoning with PEOPLE in February.

"For us, it's less about what we don't want them to use and more about what we want them to do with the adolescence that they're going to be given," she noted.

"Our oldest is only 6 years old, but she's been in ballet school for three years. She loves it and when she's hanging out with her older cousins — who are 10, 11 years old — she gets a little shy. She feels like the little kid."

Erin continued, "Around Christmas, we noticed a very cool thing happen. The Nutcracker soundtrack came on, and she started doing her ballet for the recital that she was getting ready for. And the big girls were like, 'Wow Helen, that is so cool.' She had so much confidence suddenly because she had this skill."

The mom of two said that it was times like that where she felt secure in the decision she and Ben made for their family.

"I feel like when our kids have more opportunity to be engaged in the real world and learning skills and finding their talents, that's where self-assurance comes from. And the opposite of finding self-assurance is in social media. Everything that tears down our self-confidence and self-assurance lives there," Erin continued.

"So that's really what we want to focus on is helping our girls find their gifts in the real world, and when they're older, much older, I think they'll be mentally prepared for what social media is and the tool that it can be."
