McDowells expecting baby girl in August

It’s a girl!
Graeme McDowell revealed Friday that he and wife Kristin are expecting their first child together in August.
“We found out on Tuesday it’s a girl,” he said after a second-round, 3-under 67 at the Honda Classic. “Obviously we’re real excited.”
The McDowells were married in October in The Bahamas.
The couple found out she was pregnant on New Year’s Day after returning home from Northern Ireland for the holidays.
The baby is due during the middle of the FedEx Cup playoffs, but that doesn't seem to bother McDowell.
"I think we're planning to have her, if all goes well, the Monday of Boston if she decides to stay in there that long," McDowell said. "It's a great problem to have. I really don't care when she comes, as long as she's healthy. The playoffs into the Ryder Cup . . . not much you can do there. But if it affects the playoffs, then it affects the playoffs. There will be other playoffs. You only have your first kid once."
His wife has a 5-year-old daughter from a previous marriage.
