What else should Cubs fans been expected to do upon hearing that Dexter Fowler and his wife Aliya will name their soon-to-be-born baby Ivy Noor? Of course they figured it might be a Wrigley Field thing, a reference to the iconic aesthetics of those outfield walls Fowler used to hang around.

However, Aliya didn’t wait long to set the record straight:

It’s just a nice name! Or maybe the Fowlers are tired of being caught in the middle of Twitter chirping between rival fan bases. But as long as Dexter remains a member of the Cardinals, we can figure that Ivy Noor Fowler won’t grow up a Cubs fan.
