Tiger Woods is going to be a daddy for the second time.
"Elin and I are proud to announce that we are expecting our second child in late winter," the golf champ wrote on his official Web site
"This has been a year of contrasts," Woods, 32, began. "I had a solid start to the season, won the U.S. Open in an exciting playoff, and then unfortunately had to shut it down after successful knee surgery."
Continued the athlete: "And now, I have some wonderful news to report. Sam is going to be a big sister."
Woods and his wife, Elin Nordegren, welcomed Sam Alexis
in June 2007. The couple also revealed photos of the newborn – a week after her birth – on Wood's official site.
"It was a dream come true for both Elin and myself," he said of fatherhood at the time
. "I've been changing diapers and doing feedings. I definitely don't sleep now."
