I didn’t even realize she was pregnant (or it just wasn’t the biggest pregnancy this year and I forgot about it) but congratulations to her!

I love Noah. It is a great name, although it is extremely common. I’m happy Jo Dee picked something normal and classic instead of weird like Peanut or Bronx Mowgli. He will thank her for that later. Noah Roger flows perfectly. Well done, Jo Dee and Chris!
