thank you for the Wings news. As a native metro-Detroiter, I’m a lifelong Red Wings fan. Congrats to Brad, Melissa, and the family. they’ve chosen a cute name, too.

Congratulations to them! Although this would be the couple’s first child. Stuart’s wife already had a daughter before they were dating/married.

This is their second son together. Logan’s older brother Jake would be disappointed that he has been forgotten.
