When it came to describing what kind of children his daughters were, the father could be seen glowing.
"Celeste. She's just a bottle of energy," Chris said. "She's - I call her rampage because she's got two speeds: go or she's sleeping. Bella. She's the more calm, cautious, mothering type and she's more like me - she's more calm."
