Chicago - World number one golfer Luke Donald said on Friday he has become a father for the second time to a baby girl born on 11/11/11.

Donald's wife Diane gave birth to Sophia Ann Donald on Friday morning in Chicago where the couple have a home. Both mother and daughter are said to be doing well.

The Englishman's oldest daughter Elle was born last year.

"The No 1 has been good 2 me, no more than 2day," Donald wrote on his social networking Twitter site.

The birth comes just four days after Donald's father Colin passed away unexpectedly.

Donald is poised to become the first player in history to win the money title on the PGA Tour and European Tour in the same year.

His next tournament is the Nedbank Challenge at the Gary Player Country Club near Rustenburg, South Africa on December 1-4.
