Professional golfer Annika Sörenstam knows that life will likely never be quite the same after she welcomes her first child this fall. That’s why she’s making the most of every spare minute she has while pregnant, amping up her efforts as an ambassador to the sport which has given her so much.
“I need to put in the schedule: rest. I have friends who tell me I should slow down. I guess I just go with how I feel….But when you love something, I just go.”
All her travels and appearances have been carefully plotted, and Annika says she’s taking every precaution she can as an expectant mother — avoiding sushi, bleu cheese, raw foods and alcohol. Of the latter, Annika quips “Haven’t had a sip since our wedding…and I’ve got a wine launch coming up!” She adds,
“I’m 38. I’m not going to take any risks.”
Next week, Annika will likely learn the sex of the baby she’s expecting with husband Mike McGee; A delivery surprise was never an option! “I’m a control freak,” she admits. “I need to know.”
