In an exclusive interview with the new parents – who couldn’t contain their excitement – the parents revealed the sweet meaning behind their daughter’s name.

Abigail said: ‘I am head over heels in love with this baby! I know I should be trying to get sleep when she is napping but I just can’t stop staring at her hoping that time would stop so I can stay in this heavenly moment forever!’

Ryan then revealed they named their daughter after his late grandmother – who passed away in October 2020 – and how they chose the name Olive.

‘We considered a few names, but Olive kept coming up in church,’ Ryan recalled. ‘And we loved how the olive branch symbolizes peace, so we went with it.’

‘Her middle name is Oleta – after my late grandma – who was a huge part of my life,’ he continued. ‘Abigail and I call her Double O Shecks and Ollie O.’ 

Ryan added: ‘I’m sure we will come up with many more nicknames in the future!’ 

The entrepreneur had previously announced that they were expecting by reposting an ultrasound photo shared by Abigail.

The Sheckler Sessions alum gushed in his caption: ‘Not only did I fall in love and marry my best friend [and] we are so beyond blessed and thankful to announce that we will be having a baby girl in March!’
