Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn has grown very fond of boyfriend Tiger Woods’s children.
Vonn, 34, spends quite a bit of time with daughter Sam, 7, and son Charlie, 6. They were seen together recently at the Masters Par 3 Golf Tournament two weeks ago at Augusta National. “They’re great. They’re amazing kids, and he’s an amazing father,” Vonn told People.
Both children are Tiger’s from his marriage to former model Elin Nordegren. The iconic golfer’s marriage with Elin disintegrated after it became widely publicized that Woods had entertained several affairs during their time together.
Word of Woods and Vonn being a couple surfaced back in January of 2013, according to People. They have been together ever since and are extremely supportive of each other.
In January Tiger paid a surprise visit to the American skiing sensation in Cortina Italy when Vonn broke the all time record for World Cup victories. And when it comes to hanging with Tiger, Sam, and Charlie, Lindsey is all in: “You know, I feel privileged to be along for the ride, and I help as much as I can. They’re great kids — I love ’em.”
The record-setting skier, who spends much of her energy on the Lindsey Vonn Foundation to empower girls, recently declared that she is gearing up for the 2018 Olympic games to be held in South Korea.
Tiger continues to hone his golf skills by taking a few weeks off after a solid Masters, finishing in the top twenty at Augusta. Tiger has his sights set on the 115th U.S. Open this June, which will be played at Chambers Bay in Washington. A win there would give Vonn’s boyfriend his 15th Major victory.
