Rory McIlroy and wife Erica announce the birth of their first child

Good News Notes:

“The McIlroy clan has officially grown by one.

Rory McIlroy announced the birth of his and wife Erica’s first child on social media early Thursday morning. The baby girl, named Poppy Kennedy McIlroy, was born in Jupiter, Fla.

‘Poppy Kennedy McIlroy, born August 31st, 12:15pm,’ the post said. ‘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.’

Last week at the BMW Championship, McIlroy spoke publicly about Erica’s pregnancy for the first time.

‘We’re about to be parents very soon, so we’re obviously super excited,’ McIlroy said. ‘Yeah, we’ve been sharing the news with friends and family, obviously, but I didn’t think it was something that I really particularly needed to share out here. It’s a private matter, but we’re really excited and can’t wait for her to get here.'”
