Arkansas Couple Plans on Naming Baby After Italian Restaurant Chain

It's true, the world will soon welcome a baby girl named after the Olive Garden.

Justin and Jordan Garton — a couple from Arkansas who’s expecting their first child — love the Olive Garden.

Their such big fans, in fact, that they’ve been eating at the Italian chain for as long as they can remember.

They even once dined at the restaurant for seven weeks straight, according to ABC News.

But now, their carbohydrate fixation has gone a step further: the couple plans to name their baby after the franchise.

That’s right, the world will soon welcome Olivia Garton, reports The Loop. 

“I’m only the third generation on my dad’s side to be born in America,”said Jordan Garton, 26. “I just love Italian food and growing up in Arkansas that’s pretty much one of the only Italian places that we ever got to go.”

The Gartons also plan on giving her the middle name Michelle, so her initials will read OMG.
