Event trigger Enter Pointer responds to child object instead

I want to show an edit-button (EditCanvas) when the mouse hovers over the gameobject Person, I tried to accomplish this with an Event trigger, but when trying this out I find that the Edit button only appears when the mouse is hovering just above the gameobject Name, which is a child of person. (not when hovering over the entire “hello world”, only when I hover just over the ‘o’ of hello)

Why is this happening and how can I make the trigger work whenever it’s hovering over the entire circle?
