Over the Christmas holiday, Christian pro-golfer Bubba Watson announced that he and wife Angie Ball are in the process of adopting a daughter.

On Christmas Eve, Watson posted a picture of his son holding a baby girl in his arms on his Instagram account with the message, "Caleb has a brand new baby sister, Dakota. Watson Family is now 4 and we are so blessed! #ABCD."

He published a second picture days later of himself with little Dakota captioned, "Daddy-daughter Selfie!! #ProudDad."

The two-time Masters winner and his former WNBA playing wife are no strangers to adoption. The couple adopted Caleb in 2012 as a one-month-old.

Since first expanding his brood, Watson, known for his antics with mock boy band the Golf Boys, has proved to be a committed family man. The same year they brought home Caleb, the champion golfer withdrew from a tournament to be at home.

"It's all Caleb and Angie," his manager, Jens Beck, told USA TODAY Sports following the withdrawal. "He wants to spend time with them."

He also told the publication that he commits himself every day to becoming a better dad and husband.

The Florida native has made the hierarchy of his priorities clear on Twitter. On the golfer's Twitter account, Watson's biography describes him as "Christian. Husband. Daddy. Pro Golfer."

The news of Dakota has created a frenzy among his fans. The Instagram photo of Caleb and Dakota has received over 6,000 likes and many congratulatory messages. However, Watson tempered celebrations, warning followers that his family has not finalized the adoption.

Watson and Ball have had a previous adoption fall through at the last minute. Watson told Yahoo Sports after that failed, it was "heartbreaking watching my wife."

He told followers December 24, "Look forward to releasing more information once our adoption is final. Thanks everyone for you thoughts, prayers & continued support!!"

The Christian Post contacted Pro Sports Management about Watson's adoption process; there is no word whether the Watson family finalized their foursome at the time of this article's publication.
