Rory McIlroy and his wife, Erica Stoll, on Thursday welcomed the birth of their first child ahead of the Northern Irishman’s participation at this week’s Tour Championship.
McIlroy said during last week’s BMW Championship that Erica was due quite soon and confirmed the arrival of their baby daughter on social media on Thursday afternoon.
‘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,’ read his post.
