The Korda family has made a big name for itself in sports, and not just in professional golf. And now it seems golf’s leading family is getting a little bigger.

On Thursday, LPGA veteran and six-time champion Jessica Korda announced that she and husband Johnny DelPrete, who married in 2021, are expecting their first child next year.

Korda dropped the news via an Instagram post featuring a photo of her dog with a sign reading: “DELPRETE TEE TIME FOR 3 COMING FEBRUARY 2024.” Resting against the sign were a pair of blue baby shoes.

The 30-year-old LPGA star has been sidelined since May with a lingering back injury she had been suffering from for over a year.

Korda’s most recent win came at the 2021 Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions. She’s never won a major but has top-10 finishes in all five of them, including a runner-up at the 2022 Chevron Championship. She has represented the U.S. in three Solheim Cups, including the two most recent iterations in 2019 and 2021.

Korda’s younger sister, Nelly Korda, who has fought back injuries of her own, is currently ranked No. 2 in the Rolex Women’s World Golf Ranking.
