Congratulations! It's a Tiger!
A golf fanatic and dad-to-be in Dallas has earned the right to name his son “Tiger” after winning a bet with his pregnant wife.
On the first day of the 2019 Masters, Trey Little had bet his wife Denise Coleman that Tiger Woods would emerge victorious at the end of the tournament — and stipulated that if he won, the couple would name their soon-to-be-son after Woods.
“If Tiger Woods wins the Masters this week, I (father) get to have the option of naming our son (coming September 2019) Tiger Little,” reads an agreement Trey drafted the morning before Tiger teed off in Augusta.
He soon printed it up and had Denise sign it in the breakroom of the offices where they both work. “She laughed, and then she signed,” he told The New York Post.
Trey and Denise had only learned they were having a boy in March but hadn’t yet decided what to name him, despite Trey dropping hints that he wouldn’t mind having a “Tiger Little” around.
"We wanted something unique, something different," he told Fox 4.
And although Trey claims the bet started "as a joke,” he and Denise are reportedly planning to name their son Tiger — or Tiger Julian, specifically — now that Tiger Woods managed to pull out a win at the Masters.
“[Our son] could always go by T.J.,” Trey joked to the Post.
Looking back, however, Denise probably knew Tiger was always her husband’s favorite choice. In an earlier Instagram post, Trey shared a short video from the couple’s gender reveal party, where Trey smacked a powder-filled golf ball while a friend from the crowd yelled, “Go Tiger!”
Trey also hashtagged the video — which he shared in late March — with #BabyTiger.
Denise is due in September.
