“I heard [it was happening] and I wasn’t available at the time. I’m pretty positive I was having a baby – my first child,” Chad told ET. “It just did not work into what we were doing at that moment, so I know that somebody went out and was Tristan, but it wasn’t me.”

“But I hear strong work, good job, man!” Chad added while giving a round of applause. “You know, Tristan’s secret was be that guy that every girl wants to be next to, but just isn’t sure they should be and I heard he did it well.”
