PGA Tour superstar Rory McIlroy and his wife Erica have announced the birth of their baby girl, Poppy Kennedy McIlroy.
“Poppy Kennedy McIlroy, born August 31st, 12:15pm. She is the absolute love of our lives. Mother and baby are doing great. Massive thank you to all the staff at Jupiter Medical Center and Dr Sasha Melendy for their amazing care,” wrote McIlroy in a social media post.
As GolfNewsRI reported during the BMW Championship, McIlroy was set to become a father any day and was waiting for the call.
If it came during the tournament, he said that he would have left immediately.
McIlroy is now set to tee it up this weekend at East Lake in the Tour Championship.
