It’s a Girl for Annika
By Stephanie Wei under General

Hall of Famer and former LPGA star Annika Sorenstam gave birth to a little girl today.

It was announced on her blog:

Mike and I are happy to announce that I gave birth to our little girl at 3:30AM this morning.  Ava Madelyn McGee is six pounds 10 ounces and 19 inches long.  We are all doing well and we truly appreciate the support we have received.  We are VERY excited about our new addition and will keep everyone posted in the coming weeks. Thanks!

The time stamp on the post is 4:11AM. Either she’s overly dedicated to keeping fans informed or someone wrote it for her. I’ll go with the latter. No way she was up and at ‘em 40 minutes post-birth. But we’re happy to hear the birth went smoothly.

I bet Ava will be taking her first swing before she can walk. It’s a little early for this, but it’ll be cool to watch her face off on the links with Tiger and Elin’s kids in the next few decades. Over/under on who will be the better golfer?

Congratulations to Annika and husband Mike McGee! Now when do we get to see pictures?!
