Tiger Woods‘ immoral actions through the years have had a lasting effect on both his personal and professional lives. Since his ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, found out about his compulsive cheating and affairs, he was left without a wife and without his insanely accurate golf game.
We know he hurt the feelings of a lot of ladies, but how have his children been affected by the publicity of their father’s infidelity? At such young ages, it might not be so much of an issues, but eventually Woods is going to have a lot of explaining to do.
Here’s what you need to know about Tiger’s children:
Their First Child Was Born A Day After His 2007 US Open Runner-Up
Three years after Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren got married, the couple announced the birth of their first daughter, Sam Alexis Woods, on June 18, 2007. Sam Alexis was born one day after Woods finished runner-up in the 2007 U.S. Open.
Their Second Child Was Born The Same Exact Year As The Couple's Scandal Broke
In September of 2008, Tiger Woods announced his wife was knocked-up again and that they were expecting their second child in 2009. Their son, Charlie Axel, was born on February 8, 2009.
On Thanksgiving of 2009, the cheating scandal was unveiled and Tiger was physically kicked out of his own house by his angry wife. Charlie was just 9 months old at the time. Doctors speculate that he was too young to be affected too deeply by this tumultuous split.
Tiger's Ex Wife And GF Lyndsey Vonn Became Friends Due To The Children
As Tiger and Elin had joint custody of the children, Lyndsey Vonn was usually with Tiger when the kids were over his house. The kids and her got along splendidly and eventually even Elin Nordegren herself became actual friends with Lyndsey. The became such good friends that they actually spent time together away from Tiger. Now that's not just writer's fodder, that's true friendship!
Let's add to the children subject and mix both of the kid's and daddy's business a bit.
It turns out that like daddy, Sam Alexis Woods, his daughter, makes almost as many headlines due to the uncanny resemblance she bears of her father.
Tiger Woods has been in the headlines a lot these days — and not necessarily for the best reasons.
In case you haven't already heard, Tiger was arrested over Memorial Day Weekend in 2017 for DUI in Jupiter Island, FL.
You may have seen his now-infamous mugshot somewhere on the Internet.
Yet with all this talk about Tiger, we couldn't help but think about how his adorable family must be handling the situation and what they look like today — specifically, his daughter Sam Alexis.
Tiger Wood's had this statement to say regarding his recent run-in with the law, and he didn't fail to mention his family;
I understand the severity of what I did and I take full responsibility for my actions. What happened was an unexpected reaction to prescribed medications. I didn’t realize the mix of medications had affected me so strongly. I would like to apologize with all of my heart to my family, friends, and the fans. I expect more from myself too."
What did he do this time? Will it cost him his kids?
Tiger Woods is reportedly ready to head back to rehab to avoid losing joint custody of his two kids.
While he was arrested for DUI, technically, it was not for consumption of alcohol. The story goes:
The golf legend was arrested for driving under the influence recently, however the incident didn’t stem from alcohol consumption. Woods was arrested on May 29 after being found unresponsive behind the wheel of his crashed vehicle.
According to Radar Online, Tiger visited a hospital with his kids earlier this month and then went again a couple of days later to complete paperwork and his assessment. He even supposedly reserved the entire male-inpatient unit of the Jupiter Medical Center near his home in Florida.
At the time of his arrest, Tiger Woods told authorities he had mixed Vicodin and Xanax. Footage obtained from a police dash-cam showed the 41-year-old in an incoherent state and unable to follow commands made by the officers on scene.
We wish Tiger Woods and his wonderful family all the best!
