Gerrod Chadwell and Stacy Lewis expecting (Update: She's here)

LPGA Tour star Stacy Lewis expecting her first child

The 33-year-old LPGA Tour star and husband Gerrod Chadwell announced the pregnancy and Nov. 3 due date in an interview with Golfweek. She plans to play through the Marathon Classic in July and return for a full season next year.

“Golf has never gotten in the way of anything in my personal life,” said Lewis. “Family is important to me. It’s more important than any golf tournament I’m going to play in. I thought about it a little bit from the golf side, but on the other hand, it’s like what did we want for our family.”

These days, though, golf is no longer the center of Lewis’ universe.

When the 33-year-old kicks off her 2019 season at this week’s Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions, 2½-month-old Chesnee will be in charge.

“Everything revolves around her now,” Lewis said. “Your day starts when she’s ready. It’s not about you or it’s not about my husband anymore, it’s just all about her now. It’s been good.

“I wouldn’t change it for anything.”

In just a few short months of being your mom I have learned so much. Such as how little sleep is really needed to function on. And that it’s really hard to raise a kid!

I’ve realized that other things don’t matter as much anymore, such as planning things perfectly or getting everything done in a day. I feel less important than ever but simultaneously more important because I realize how big of a responsibility it is to be a parent. I think about all the things I want to teach you.

Both your Daddy (who happens to be the women’s golf coach at the University of Houston) and I share a love for the game of golf. The sport has taught me so many values, such as sportsmanship, how to win and how to lose with grace. Hard work, humility, etiquette, manners, honesty, perseverance. So many life skills that I hope you will learn because life is not always easy or fair.
