Rickie Fowler loves being a girl daddy to his daughter Maya Fowler.

Rickie began dating professional athlete and sports model Allison Stokke in 2017 before they married in 2019 in a ceremony in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. A few years later, Rickie and Allison welcomed their first child together, Maya, in 2021.

The professional golfer tends to keep his personal life private, including his family. Still, Allison and Maya were featured in Netflix’s second season Full swing, which captured the moment Rickie won the Rocket Mortgage Classic in July 2023 after a four-year gap between winning on a PGA Tour. He then thanked his wife and daughter for their support.

“I always wanted to win with Maya around,” he said in the second episode of the season. “Just being able to have the videos and photos at that moment, that will be special, and hopefully there will be many more that she will remember.”

Rickie also opened up about how becoming a father has changed him during an April 2024 episode of the PGA Tour Originals series Come visit Jason Kennedy.

“It helps you realize that there are much bigger things in life than just the daily grind,” Rickie said of parenthood. “If your family is doing well and healthy and your friends are good, that’s really all you need.”

Here’s everything you need to know about Rickie’s daughter, Maya Fowler.

Rickie and Allison revealed on social media that they were expecting their first child together in the summer of 2021. The couple shared a photo of them posing on the beach as Allison showed off her baby bump.

“Reservations for November…Fowler group of 3,” Rickie wrote in his post. “In November, @rickiefowler might be a little outnumbered,” Allison joked about her.

A few days later, ahead of the 2021 Travelers Championship, Rickie opened up to the PGA Tour about the pregnancy announcement, noting that they were “excited” about it.

“I was waiting to share with people and then it starts to become a reality,” he explained. “We were able to share it with friends and family a little early and then started sharing it with more people, and now everyone knows. At that point it’s pretty cool and pretty special.

Rickie also noted that early in Allison’s pregnancy it was important to make sure both mother and baby were healthy.

Rickie was “looking forward” to becoming a father

Before his daughter’s birth, Rickie was open about his enthusiasm for parenthood, which he heard was “life-changing.”

In his interview with PGA Tour, Rickie emphasized that Maya would be “the most important thing” in his life, adding, “Everything else will take a backseat.”

“I’m looking forward to trying to manage everything, keep things as efficient as possible and be able to divide my time between her, and family, and also playing golf,” he explained.

She was born in November 2021

Rickie Fowler celebrates with his daughter Maya after winning the Rocket Mortgage Classic in a playoff at Detroit Golf Club on July 2, 2023.

The father-daughter duo shared a sweet moment when she was a toddler. It started as Rickie was getting ready for a shot, and Maya ran up to him and asked to be picked up.

When Rickie asked if his caddie, Ricky Romano, could hold Maya, she refused to let go. In response, Rickie took a short break to carry Maya to Allison behind the barrier surrounding the course.

They had another one at the US Open in June 2023. Allison posted several photos from the event, including one of Rickie holding Maya in the air above his head. The second photo showed Maya holding one of her father’s bats.

Allison and Maya were allowed too celebrate Rickie at the Rocket Mortgage Classic the following month.

Rickie has hope for his daughter’s future

Maya may be just a toddler, but Rickie is manifesting a future in golf for his daughter.

On several occasions, including at the American Express in January 2023, he shared a subtle nod to the athletic path she could one day take.

Spectators noticed an American Junior Golf Association tag hanging from his golf bag, which is typically used so college coaches know the players’ graduation year.

Rickie’s label read: “Maya Fowler 2040.”

She is her father’s “main job”.

He may be a golfer by profession, but Rickie has said his role in life is to be a father to his daughter. During his episode of Come visit Jason Kennedy in April 2024, he called being a father his “most important job.”

“Obviously you have to continue to build a relationship with your wife, but also be a father,” he explained. “When I see Maya’s reaction and how she lights up when she sees Allison or me, it really feels like nothing else matters.”

Rickie also noted that being a girl dad was “really special,” saying, “I don’t have a boy but my sister has twins. I have a lot of friends who have little boys but I feel like there’s something about a little girl that just pulls you a little harder.
