RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. An Arkansas couple named Justin and Jordan Garton really love Olive Garden. In fact, in 2015, they bought something called a Never Ending Pasta Pass and ate there almost every day for seven weeks. When the couple found out they were having a baby, they wanted to pay tribute to the restaurant where they spent so much time. Naming her Olive Garton was just a little too on the nose, so they went with Olivia. Oh, and her middle name will be Michelle, giving her the initials O.M.G. It's MORNING EDITION.
