They love pasta. Their last name is Garton. So what else would they name their first born daughter than Olivia Garton?
Justin and Jordan Garton said they lived on Olive Garden meals for seven weeks. They were newly wed and had financial woes many new couples have, so they bought a “Never Ending Pasta Pass.” The ticket allowed them to eat as much as they wanted for seven weeks. They ate dinner there every night, taking home leftovers for the next day, Inside Edition reported.
When they found out they were pregnant earlier this year, they wanted an Italian name. At one point they said no to Olive Garton, but came up with Olivia.
“We were able to make the joke, but a little more subtle, and it’s still a pretty name, Jordan told ABC News.
A friend took the joke a step further, making the couple and new baby a onesie with “Olivia Garton” in the style of the famous restaurant’s logo.
A photo of the outfit caught the eye of officials at Olive Garden.
The company told ABC News that it has sent the growing family a surprise and will send food and other presents when Olivia makes her debut.
Not only do the couple have a sense of humor with their daughter’s first and last name, they plan on giving their daughter the middle name of Michelle when she’s born next month.
She will be Olivia Michelle Garton, ABC News reported. O.M.G.
