Aussie Day and wife Ellie welcome first child


Jason Day and his wife, Ellie, welcomed their first child into the world early on Wednesday, according to the Australian Associated Press. Dash James Day was born weighing 8 pounds, 4 ounces. 

The 24-year-old said in February he didn't want to be an 'old dad.'

'I'm a little nervous, obviously, being a father for the first time,' he said. 'I'm also excited at the same time. I've always wanted to have kids. I love kids.'

Day has withdrawn from next week's British Open at Royal Lytham and St. Annes, opting instead to stay home with his newborn son.
