Tiger Woods and his wife Elin will soon be adding another addition to their family! Tiger broke the news via his website, saying the couple is "proud to announce that we are expecting our second child in late winter." After recently undergoing knee surgery, Tiger shares that the timing couldn’t be more perfect as he is able to be with Elin — who is "feeling great" — and also "spend a lot of time watching Sam grow." Calling fatherhood extremely rewarding, Tiger reveals that so far, he and Elin have not found out the sex of the baby.

"I’m already starting to wonder if Sam’s sibling will be a boy or a girl."

The couple are already parents to 14-month-old daughter Sam Alexis.

Congrats! I’m sure baby #2 will be just as cute as Sam Alexis!

Wow-I wasn’t expecting this one, though I shouldn’t be surprised. Congrats to all of them; if that baby is half as beautiful as his or her sister, they’ll be more than alright. Sam is hands down one of the most beautiful babies I’ve ever seen.

Wow, I was surprised by this one because it seems to me like it was yesterday that Sam was born, but then I realised it was 14 months ago! How time flies!

Congrats to Tiger, Erin and Sam! I’m sure the baby is gonna be a cutie!

Guess he has been keeping busy in his time off from golf!!! LOL!! I just love him and his family. Watching him with Sam after he completed his most recent playoff was heartwarming… He is a very dedicated, conscientious father.

Congrats to the family! all three Woods are just gorgeous and I’m sure this baby will be, too.

as a side note, i am just amazed at people having kids so close in age. i would need like a decade between kids to feel comfortable. go people who can handle that.

Stephany on

Aw, yay! Congrats to them! I was hoping they would add to their family. Sam is such a beautiful little girl!

Emma on

Little Sam looks just like Tiger’s mum I think.

m-dot on

YAY! Sam is already one of the prettiest little ones we’ve seem. I can’t wait to see number 2!

FC on

This is a surprise–but a welcome one. I’m just shocked that it’s so soon. Winter isn’t that far off, but I’m looking forward to this baby’s debut.

Brandi on

well that announcement came faster than i thought, i guess we know what he was doing while his achilees was healing hahaha. i’m sure the baby will be gorgeous just like ms. sam alexis

Kelly on

congrats to them! Sam is one beautiful little girl & i was wondering is her full name Samantha or just Sam?

Allison on

Kelly, her real name is Sam Alexis Woods- they named her after Tiger’s father who passed away before Sam was born. Congratulations!

Well, I guess someone’s keeping busy while away from golf.
