Paula Creamer announced on Instagram on Sunday that her family would soon become a group of three. The former US Women’s Open champion announced she was pregnant by posting a photo of herself and her fiancé Shane Kennedy that said, “Guess what?” Baby shirt.
The announcement comes as Creamer, a 10-time LPGA Tour winner, finds himself in the middle of a competitive comeback after being paused with an ongoing left wrist injury. In May, the 34-year-old played at the Pure Silk Championship, her first LPGA Tour start since October 2019, after allowing her wrist to fully recover from surgery during the coronavirus pandemic.
Creamer will be fielded at next week’s Amundi Evian Championship, a tournament she won in 2005 before earning major status. The last time the Evian was held in 2019, Creamer held part of the lead after the first round before finishing T-55. She will make her 16th career start in the major.
