Annika Sorenstam Announces She’s Preganant

A couple of years ago we figured she was a super hero. Now we know she’s human after all.

Annika Sorenstam, former World No. 1 and the most dominate female golfer of the past generation announced Thursday that she and husband Mike McGee, are expecting their first child. The announcement came on her website after weeks of speculation throughout the golfing world.

“We have had a lot of exciting changes in the past few months, and adding a new addition to our family later this fall will certainly be at the top of that list,”

Sorenstam wrote.

“We are absolutely thrilled and look forward to this new chapter of our lives! We appreciate the love and support that we have received from our family, friends, and of course my fans.”

The Swede, who will be 39 in October, married McGee, son of former PGA and Champions Tour player Jerry McGee, on January 10, 2009. He is currently the Managing Director of the ANNIKA brand.

The author of 72 LPGA tournament wins, 91 wins worldwide and 10 major championships announced last year that she would be “stepping away” from professional golf at the end of 2008 to pursue her off course interest which include course design, her clothing line and golf academy, as well as her family, which now appears to be well on the way.
