I was so hoping for a little girl – Kirk and Lani would create a pretty girl, but Metallica seem set on mostly boys, lol, excluding James. But yay for Kirk and Lani, Angel is beautiful and I’m sure this new little one will be too.

I can’t remember if I read about him and Lani expecting again or not… But congrats to them on their new boy. I like the name.

I’m just laughing at how Kirk and Angel are “coping”. That just came off as funny to me.

Hea on

HAHA Angel and Dad are coping. I can just picture it. Congratulations to them all!
