(Reuters) – Michelle Wie and husband Jonnie West are expecting their first child, a daughter, this summer, the American golfer announced on Instagram on Thursday.
“Babygirl, we love you so much already and we just can’t wait to meet you this summer!!” she wrote in a post alongside a photo of a pair of tiny running shoes.
The five-time winner on the LPGA Tour married West, the son of NBA Hall of Famer Jerry West, in August in Los Angeles.
In June Wie announced she was taking a break from competitive golf for the remainder of 2019 citing the injuries she has battled throughout her career.
The Hawaii native won the U.S. Women’s Open in 2014, the same year she achieved a career-high ranking of world number six.
