Tiger Woods becomes a father
LOS ANGELES - Tiger Woods became a first-time father Monday, when his wife, Elin, gave birth to a baby daughter, the Worlds No. 1 golfer announced on his web site Monday.
Woods and Elin have chose the name Sam Alexis Woods for the baby, who was born early Monday morning just one day after Father's Day and less than 24 hours after Woods finished second in the 2007 US Open championship.
"Both Elin and Sam are doing well and resting peacefully," Woods wrote. "We want to thank our doctors and the hospital staff for all their dedicated and hard work. 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."
