Michelle Wie West now has a little one of her own.
“Kenna baby, I have waited my entire life to meet you,” Wie, the former U.S. Women’s Open champion, wrote on Instagram.
They named her Makenna Kamalei Yoona West. The 30-year-old Wie was born and raised in Honolulu. Kamalei is a Hawaiian for “beloved child.”
