Make a Dash: Jason Day and wife Ellie proud parents

Jason Day and his wife, Ellie, welcomed their first child into the world early on Wednesday, according to the Australian Associated Press. Dash James Day was born weighing 8 pounds, 4 ounces.

The 24-year-old said in February he didn't want to be an "old dad."

"I'm a little nervous, obviously, being a father for the first time," he said. "I'm also excited at the same time. I've always wanted to have kids. I love kids."

It is unclear if Day will make the trip to Royal Lytham and St. Annes for next week's British Open.
