    Yay! Congrats to them! I’m glad she chose a strong, traditional name for her daughter and didn’t follow the celebrity trend of off the wall names.

    Olive is a great name. It’s also the character Drew voiced on “Olive, the other Reindeer”. A Christmas special (from a great book) on TV. It’s very cute.

    It seems like Drew would be much older but I think its just because I’ve been waitching her on TV for so long, shes still young. Happy for her and congrats on Olive, I like that name.
