Rory McIlroy's former childhood sweetheart is basking in the joy of pending motherhood.

Holly Sweeney (24) celebrated a baby shower at the weekend to mark her soon-to-be bundle of baby boy joy.

The fun-filled bash was organised by her longtime pal Caroline Reid and the two happily posed for photos with blue-themed cupcakes and balloons as Holly is nearing her due date.

The University of Ulster graduate is in a long-term relationship with ice hockey player Jeff Mason, and the two live together in Jolywood, Co Down.

Her former boyfriend of six years, whom she dated from the age of 14, broke off his engagement to tennis player Caroline Wozniacki in May, and just one week later it was revealed that Holly was six months pregnant with her other half.

At the time, McIlroy said he was happy for his ex.

"I'm happy for her," he said last night. "You know, it’s great to see she’s happy – all good.”

Meanwhile, his most recent ex, former fiancee Caroline Wozniacki has been sending cryptic tweets of late.
