Brooks Koepka’s baby with wife Jena Sims is intensive care after being born six weeks early.

The couple announced the birth of their baby boy, Crew, on August 3 but Jena revealed that he had been born on July 27, six weeks ahead of her due date. 

In a later update, the Sports Illustrated swimsuit hopeful said that the newborn was going into neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

‘Leaving the hospital without your baby is something I wish on no one,’ Jena shared.

‘It’s the hardest thing we’ve ever done. There’s so much space in my heart for NICU parents, and those who don’t get to bring their babies home.

‘We have been visiting him as much as possible, and we know he’s in the absolute best care.’

She added ‘He’s off oxygen, breathing on his own. He is starting to take a bottle (in very small amounts) otherwise feeding through his nose. He is meeting tiny milestones every day!’

Jena revealed that Crew had to be delivered by C-section in order to ‘get him here safely.’

 ‘The C-section was not my first choice but it was the only way to get him here safely,’ she posted.

‘It’s such a barbaric procedure but I’m taking each day step by step! Finally turned a corner with the pain and my milk [sic] is cooperating (praise)!

‘Not being around him constantly is an added hurdle, along with so much else emotionally.’  

The couple, who met in 2015, announced they were expecting they first child in May.

Jena shared the exciting news via Instagram, while wishing the golfer, a happy birthday.

‘Happiest birthday, the best is yet to come,’ she captioned a carousel of photos that showed the sports star kissing her baby bump and holding up a sonogram photo.

Jena made it to the top seven of Sports Illustrated’s Swim Search finalists and has continued throughout her pregnancy, walking the runway during Miami Swim Week in June.

The couple met at The Masters in 2015 and officially tied the knot during a stunning beach-side wedding in Turks and Caicos in June 2022, surrounded by their close friends and family. 

Jena – who is an actress most known for her role in the Sharknado movies and is currently a Sports Illustrated Swim Search finalist – spoke out about her ‘supportive’ her husband is of her career last month.

‘He’s so supportive, and I think that’s why our relationship is so successful because I’m also supportive of his hopes and dreams,’ she gushed.

‘And he’s so interested in everything that I have going on, which couldn’t be further from what he has going on.’

Koepka, who plays on the Saudi-backed LIV Golf circuit, won his fifth major earlier this year at the PGA Championship at Oak Hill.

The win, which marked the first time a LIV Golf player has won a major since the rebel series began last June, was an emotional one for Koepka after his recent battle back from knee injuries. 

Sims was unable to be at the venue for  her husband’s victory as she was in Miami for promotional events for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition.

But she made sure to follow her husband’s final round anxiously from the couch. 

She posted a video to TikTok, with the television still showing Koepka on the 18th green in the background, alluding to her pregnancy.
