Laura and Joe Gerardi had a surprise visit just before Thanksgiving. Addyson Reid joined the family as its seventh member. Laura was talking to her real estate teammate at 9:30 a.m. during labor. Baby girl Addyson arrived a few hours later at 12:03 p.m. There is nothing Minnie Mouse about Laura, as barely a month later she rang in the New Year on a Disney cruise in the Caribbean. Their flight to Miami was cancelled, so an unexpected 21-hour drive to Miami with children Cambry, Boston, Greyson and Jackson was just another love of labor.
