MEXICO CITY — Former top-ranked golfer Lorena Ochoa has given birth to a baby boy.

Ochoa’s brother Alejandro said the baby was born Thursday at 8:58 p.m. in Mexico City and named Pedro Conesa Ochoa. Her husband is Mexican businessman Andres Conesa.

Ochoa won two majors and 27 titles on the LPGA tour in her eight-year career. She was the No. 1 golfer for three years before she retired in 2010.

The 30-year-old Ochoa has discounted returning to play full-time on the LPGA tour, but has said she’d like to play one or two tournaments a year.

She hosts the annual Lorena Ochoa Invitational in Guadalajara.
