Korda sister announces she's expecting first child with adorable pic

LPGA Tour star Jessica Korda has confirmed she is expecting her first child. 

The elder Korda sister, 30, confirmed the news with an Instagram post on 26 August. 

'DelPrete tee time for three coming February 2024,' she wrote alongside a pic of her beloved dog Charlie. 

There was also an adorable pair of baby FootJoy golf shoes:

Among those congratulating Jessica included Michelle Wie West, who bowed out of the professional game in 2023, Lexi Thompson and Leona Maguire.

Jessica married her long-term partner Johnny DelPrete in December 2021. The pair are understood to have been dating since 2013. 

They tied the knot at The Pelican Club in Jupiter, Florida.

DelPrete is a graduate of the University of Mississippi and works for Nest Seekers International. 

Jessica has been side-lined since May with a lingering back injury. The injury has been plaguing her for the better part of a year. 

She announced in May she would stop playing indefinitely to try and rehab her back. 

'Despite countless hours of treatment at home and on the road the pain is not improving,' she wrote. 

Her most recent win came at the 2021 Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions. 

Despite having six LPGA Tour titles to her resume, she has never won a major championship. She has, however, posted top-10 finishes in all five of the women's majors. 

Jessica has represented the Team USA in three Solheim Cup teams. 

Her younger sister, Nelly, has also been struggling with injuries of her own in 2023 but returned to action before the AIG Women's Open at Walton Heath which was won by Lillia Vu.
