Rory McIlroy buys gift for Holly Sweeney’s baby
Rory McIlroy and his ex-girlfriend Holly Sweeney are apparently good friends. Sweeney began following McIlroy on Twitter about two months ago, which gave us an indication that the former couple is on speaking terms. Rory confirmed that on Tuesday when he bought a gift for Sweeney’s new baby boy.

It was revealed over the summer that Sweeney and her new boyfriend, Belfast hockey player Jeff Mason, were expecting a child. Little Max was born last month, and McIlroy is obviously friendly enough with both Sweeney and Mason that he decided to pay them a visit and bring some Nike swag.

Are we a little disappointed that McIlroy breaking up with Caroline Wozniacki didn’t result in a rekindling of his relationship with Holly? Sure, but it’s nice to see everyone getting along. We can always hold onto our first memories of Holly. Nobody can take those away from us.
