Tiger Woods is a dad

Filed under: Your Pregnancy, Celeb Parents

"I have always wanted to be a dad," said golfing legend Tiger Woods last December, when he announced his wife, a Swedish model and former nanny, was pregnant. Today she gave birth to their daughter, Sam Alexis. It seems celebrity babies are popping out all over the place these days. Tiger and his wife seem like a great couple.

On his website, Tiger thanked the doctors and hospital staff and added "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."

I'm sure that this is a bittersweet time for Tiger, though. Last December, when he announced the pregnancy, he noted "I just wish my father could be around to share the experience." My father passed away barely a year before Jared was born, and I truly wish he could have lived to see his grandchildren. I'm sure Tiger feels the same way. His father, Earl Woods, passed away in May of 2006.

Still, he and his wife have many sleepless nights to look forward to, and much joy. Congratulations to the new parents!
