Things have been going on more or less well for Northern Irish golfer Graeme McDowell and it is set to get better with the former major winner expecting a baby girl with his wife, it has been announced.
While playing at the Honda Classic last month, the member of the European Ryder Cup team announced that his wife Kristin, who he married in October last year are expecting their first child and it is a girl.
He also announced that the delivery is expected to be around the time of the FedEx Cup playoffs later this year. According to McDowell, they just recently found out that it is a girl and being parents for the first time has got them really excited.
The Northern Irishman also managed to announce the due date for the arrival of their little bundle of joy to the world, stating that he expects the delivery to be on the Monday of Boston, but added that it all depends on whether the youngster decides to stay that long in her mother’s womb.
The aforementioned week of Boston is the time when the Deutsche Bank Championship, which is a part of the FedEx Cup playoffs and is scheduled to take place at the end of August.
McDowell also addressed the issue of having a child born at the time of a major event in the golfing calendar. He mentioned that it is a problem, but it is a great problem and as long as the child is healthy, she doesn’t care when she is born.
He went on to mention that even if it affects the playoffs, it doesn’t matter, because playoffs will come again but his first child will be born only once and that is the most important thing to him at this particular moment in time.
