LOS ANGELES: The world's No. 1 golfer Tiger Woods said he was delighted with the birth of his baby girl on Monday and that mother and daughter are doing just fine.
Woods said on his website tigerwoods.com that he and wife, Elin, have named the first born Sam Alexis Woods.
The little darling was born one day after Father's Day and a few hours after Woods finished tied for second, just one shot back of winner Angel Cabrera at the 2007 US Open championship.
“Both Elin and Sam are doing well and resting peacefully,” Woods wrote.
“We want to thank our doctors and the hospital staff for all their dedicated and hard work.
“This is truly a special time in our lives and we look forward to introducing Sam to our family and friends over the next few weeks. We thank everyone for their well wishes and continued respect of our privacy.”
Woods did not say what hospital the baby was born in but he and Elin have a home in Orlando, Florida.
He would only say the baby was born early on Monday morning. – AFP
