“I want to plan a very special Father’s Day since this will be Bill’s first,” she said. “Since we spent Mother’s Day in LA, I’d love to plan an exciting weekend in Chicago — Bill’s hometown — with both of my boys. Depending on the weather, I’d love to start off with a run with Bill and Duke in the jogger along the lakefront. It would be really nice to walk to the zoo, some museums and then top the night off with dinner at RPM Italian.”
