"We are so excited to add to our little family, I was hoping for a girl, but Max is a little scared, I think.”
The View co-host who further talked about how her husband was preparing himself to father a daughter this time stating,
“He’s feeling a bit nervous about how to parent as a father to a little girl, Max has been surrounded by mostly male relatives. He has a brother, all male cousins and only nephews.”
