Irish golfer Shane Lowry has shared his excitement at become a first time father.

Th Offaly native (29) and wife Wendy Honner, a nurse, are expecting their first child in early 2017, he told broadcaster Denis Kirwan in Dubai.

"I don't know if many people even know this yet, but I might as well tell you - Wendy is expecting a baby so we're having our first kid at the end of February," he said.

"That'll be nice. I'm going to play a few weeks in a row and then take some time off when we're having the baby, then I'll be back for Augusta.

The couple exchanged vows in a "very chilled" ceremony in New York City in April in front of just a handful of family and friends.

He popped the question on a beach in Dubai in December 2014 but insisted they were in no hurry to get hitched.

"I am absolutely delighted," Lowry said at the time. "Wendy is a great girl and we are both looking to our future together."
