My Chemical Romance singer Gerard Way is pulling out all the stops for his 6 ½-month-old daughter Bandit Lee‘s first Christmas! “It is a really big deal,” he notes in a new interview with Spin. “It’s very exciting — even though no matter what we get her she’s not really going to realize what it is.”
From the sound of things, baby girl’s Batman costume is just the beginning. “We got her some fun outfits,” Gerard reveals.
It’s been a big year for Gerard, who entered the studio just two weeks after Bandit’s birth. His band’s as-yet-untitled album — due in stores this spring — was “more challenging than the baby,” he says, “and the baby was really challenging.”

As soon as enough material had been recorded, Gerard would “rush right home” to help out with Bandit — not that he’s complaining! “It made the recording process take a little bit longer, but it made the process more enjoyable,” he says. “I don’t think there was a single night where I was in the studio past like 10 or 11 — I genuinely wanted to get home.”
Bandit is the first child together for Gerard and wife Lindsey ‘Lyn-Z’ Ballato.
