Irish golfer Graeme McDowell is one proud dad.

The Northern Irish champion welcomed his first child, a little girl, into the world yesterday with his wife Kristin Stape.

And he shared a sweet photo of the three of them in the hospital together, while he tenderly plants a kiss on his daughter' forehead.

"Welcome to the world to our beautiful daughter," he wrote on Twitter. "7 lbs 4 0z at 604am August 25th 2014. Name to be confirmed! #love."
