American golfer Nelly Korda’s younger brother Jason McDede and German golfer Caroline Masson are expecting their first child together in May. The couple, who are set to wed in Melbourne, Florida, this week announced the happy news last week on social media.

The couple learned they were expecting the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship in September. It was perfect because they had adopted a puppy, Ace, from a family on the 10th hole at Pinnacle Country Club in Rogers six years prior.

According to Golfweek, Caroline Masson thinks it’s the perfect time to start a family.

She says:

“To be honest, it’s probably the perfect time right now.”

Masson added that she did not want to force things and that she wanted to try without forcing too much for the child.

“I’ve always said trying without too much effort was kind of a motto, which is more like me. I didn’t want to force things.”

Motherhood takes a lot of time away from female athletes. Caroline Masson, too, agreed that it was going to be hard to give up golf.

“I love playing golf. It’s hard to feel like you’re giving that up, at least for a while, to have a baby. I think that’s what a lot of players go through. What’s the perfect time?”

Caroline Masson doesn’t spend a lot of time thinking about long-term projects. She was inspired by all the athletes who return to the field after motherhood with their children in tow. Over time, the LPGA’s maternity policy has been more accommodating. Now, Masson is looking forward to only one: some downtime to prepare for the next special chapter.

Nelly Korda, who worked with Jason McDede, considers him her big brother. She said she was thrilled to see him step into a new role.

“I can’t wait to see him step into this new role. I know he’s going to be awesome. I can’t wait to spoil their child.”

“We just hung out all weekend and hit it off” – Jason McDede on how he and Caroline Masson met

German golfer Caroline Masson and Nelly Korda’s caddie, Jason McDede, have had a romance straight out of a movie. McDede first asked Masson out on a date at the 2013 Women’s British Open in St. Andrews.

The two met at the iconic 18th hole of the Old Course and followed it with dinner. And it’s been a love affair for books ever since.

In McDede’s own words:

“We just hung out all weekend and hit it off and the next thing you know, we’ve been together for 10 years.”

Their wedding has been postponed several times due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, it is finally happening this week in Melbourne, Florida. The couple will go on a honeymoon cruise with the whole family to the Cayman Islands and Jamaica.
