Erica prefers to stay out of the limelight

She is a keen sailor and likes The Bachelor, the American dating show. So she is a romantic.

Do they have any children together?

On August 31, 2020, the beautiful Poppy Kenney Mcllroy was born which was Rory and Erica’s first child together.

And why did he break up with Caroline Wozniacki?

Rory was engaged to tennis star Caroline Wozniacki until famously calling things off in 2014 after their wedding invitations had already been sent out.

That was just before the start of that year’s BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.

He went onto to win that week and then captured the Open and US PGA later that year.

Explained Rory:  “I thought at the time that being with someone that was in a similar position to you was the obvious answer.

“But it isn’t, because you can never get away from it. You can never detach yourself and try to come back to the real world.

“And that’s why I feel in such a good place now. I don’t feel Erica wants to change me in any way.

“I can be myself around her; there’s no bulls***, no acting, no show.”
