Jon Rahm has announced on social media that he is expecting his first child with wife Kelley.

World. Number 2 Jon Rahm shared some very exciting news this weekend and it's made us very happy indeed.

The star golfer was already having a great year; he won the Memorial and BMW Championship, had a brief stint at the top of the world rankings and also shot that unforgettable water-skimming hole in one on his Birthday whilst practicing for the Masters.

But on Thanksgiving, Jon Rahm announced what he is most thankful for this year.

The 26-year-old posted a photo on Instagram where Kelley can clearly be seen cradling a growing baby bump.

The captain reads: "Feeling extra grateful this year, Happy Thanksgiving from us and our growing family!”

Both coming from sporting backgrounds, Jon and Kelley met at Arizona state university where Kelley was competing in javelin and Jon played golf.

They got engaged in 2018 and married in Jon's hometown of Bilbao, Spain last December.

Their child will certainly have the most wonderful athletic genes!

Congratulations Jon and Kelley.
