Harrington Becomes Father

RSS

Padraig Harrington and wife Caroline are the parents of a baby boy, born Sunday night soon after Harrington had finished playing in the WGC-NEC Championship in Akron, Ohio.
 
He received a text message on his cell phone on the 13th hole of his final round in which his wife warned him she was heading off to hospital.
 
Harrington arrived back in Britain about 7 a.m. Monday, by which time he already knew the good news.
 
'I'm on my way back home at the moment with the good news that my wife Caroline has had a baby boy,' he said on his personal website.
 
The baby had been due Aug. 11, but when doctors said it looked like being a week late, Harrington made the decision not to fly back after the PGA Championship.
