    My birthday is May 28th the day after!
    And I like their daughter’s name, it’s unique. There are people with much more unqiue, and much worse names. And plus, Gerard and Lyndz probably had a special reason to name her that. Quit hating.

    I wish my name was something cool and unique like Bandit. Original names are great, she’s probably the only Bandit in the world! 😀 Common names are boring. If I ever have kids I’m giving them unique names lol :3 Bandit’s nickname is B (Bee) so it’s cool 🙂 Bandit is so cute
    good luck to their family!

    Gerard was happier with Eliza. Lyn-z only seems to be with him for his status, money, and fame…She won’t let anybody even caller her Mrs. Way…
