Mina Starsiak Hawk and husband Steve celebrate their sixth wedding anniversary with sweet tributes on Instagram.
“That’s 6 year closure,” the HGTV star captioned an Instagram carousel of photos. “Foster parents, infertility, 5 deaths, 2 births, new businesses, a pandemic…. You name it, we did it Boo. And whatever comes in the next 6 years, we will do the same.”
Her husband also reflected on the hardships they faced — including the death of his sister Stefanie in 2020 — writing, “I couldn’t have made it without you.”
The couple married in 2016 and have since had two children – son Jack, 3, and daughter Charlotte, 1. Bones.” She has starred in other HGTV shows such as “Rock the Block” and “Battle on the Beach.”
The spark is clearly still alive for the pair, with Mina calling Steve “the best dad, an incredibly hot AF husband and one of the most loyal friends I know.”
“People ask me all the time. They’re like, ‘Hey Skeeter, what’s your favorite thing about Mina,’ and I always say the same thing… ‘Great question stranger, it’s 100% her T&A, have a great day,'” the personal trainer joked in the title of his post.
Steve went on to say he was joking, noting, “My favorite thing about my bride is her patience.” He also shared his love and respect for her “as a wife, a mother, and a business owner.”
While Steve thanked his wife for “producing some damn fine kids,” completing their family hasn’t always been an easy path. The couple suffered secondary infertility before welcoming Charlotte on September 16, 2020.
People reported that they had conceived their youngest child through natural IUI, intrauterine insemination, after exhausting other fertility treatments including a failed IVF, in vitro fertilization.
The Built Together writer reflected on welcoming her daughter just months after losing Stefanie in an Instagram post in January 2021. She wrote that 2020 “Stef took. And our ability to come together as a family to share our love for her as she deserves. It took my husband’s joy away that he had just managed to find his way back after losing his parents. A dark shadow hung over every celebration that could not forget the people who were not present.”
But she added that every time she looks at her daughter, “I see Stef, for better or for worse. Some days it makes me cry and some days it’s the bright light in a really shitty moment. Stef’s gone, but I see her every day… and I’m so grateful for that.”
Mina will star in a spin-off of Good Bones. The six-part series for Discovery+, Good Bones: Risky Business, is slated to premiere in Summer 2022.
The new series will follow its “biggest renovation challenge,” the purchase and restoration of the historic Sanders House in Indianapolis’ Fountain Square neighborhood, Discovery announced.
“The more than a century-old 6,000-square-foot lot — which includes the main house and a coach house — will be the largest project Mina has undertaken to date in terms of size and budget,” reads the series description. “And this overhaul requires a precise restoration to return the Sanders House to its former glory.”
Good Bones has also been renewed for Season 7.
