G-Mac to become a father for second time

Big hitting’ baby boy due in August

Graeme McDowell is hoping the “nappy factor” will kick in for him later this season revealing: “We’ve got a baby boy on the way.”

The 36-year old Portrush native and his American wife Kristin Stape are expecting the birth of their second child — a boy — at the end of August.

“We just found out around the New Year and we waited until we had all the blood tests and then the scan last Tuesday before we started to let people know,” McDowell said after his second round at the Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens in Florida, where he is tied for 20th on level par.

“He’s looking good. He’s a big boy. Looks like he’s going to be able to hit it 330! We’re thrilled with the news.”

McDowell married interior designer Kristin Stape in the Bahamas in January 2013 and their daughter, Vale Esme, was born on August 25th 2014.

Her birth by caesarean section came just weeks before the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles but while Europe won, McDowell’s  hope for the traditional golfer’s upturn in form to coincide with the new arrival never materialised.

He joked: “Maybe it will kick in this time. But obviously we are very excited and Mum is doing well.
