When Justin Verlander went with Upton’s choice to name their daughter

For some reason, once in a while, every couple has disagreements in their relationship. And it is what makes their relationship even stronger. Going back to the time when the couple was pregnant with their first child, they disagreed over naming their upcoming child.

Per a video on Nicki Swift, Upton was clear on her stand to name the baby ‘Genevieve,’ but Verlander had something else in his mind. However, when it came down to official paperwork after the birth of their baby, Verlander went with his wife’s choice. And since then, their daughter’s name is Genevieve.
