Tiger Woods, extraordinary golfer guy, unveiled some new pictures of his happy family (dogs included). He and wifey Elin have named their newborn son Charlie Axel, and while I could rant about giving your children nicknames rather than full names (Sam as a girl’s name? Really?), I’m more disturbed by the “Axel” angle as I had no idea Eldrick loved GNR that much. Personally, I think Charlie Slash Woods or Charlie Duff McKagan Woods could have also worked.
Charlie Axel Woods was born on Feb. 8 to Woods and his wife Elin Nordegren (well, mostly to Elin), and these photos from Golf magazine are the first public appearance of the lil’ duffer.
“Both Charlie and Elin are doing great, and we want to thank everyone for their sincere best wishes and kind thoughts,” Woods wrote on his website when Charlie was born. Woods, of course, has been out of the game since the U.S. Open in June 2008, but expects to return to competition in the next few weeks … just in time to dodge the majority of diaper-changing duty.
Indeed, Charlie is a lovely and precious kid. Now, Chuck, tell your daddy to get back to work!
