When it came to picking a name for their new baby, The Bold and the Beautiful couple asked their eldest daughter for her input. “We decided to use both because when we asked our daughter Everleigh what name she liked for her baby sister, Gemma or Wynter, she would always say, ‘Gemma Wynter.’ So it’s actually kind of sweet that she now played a big part in naming her baby sister!”
