The father of Elin Nordegren’s baby is NFL tight end Jordan Cameron

Elin Nordegren, golfer Tiger Woods’ ex-wife, is due to deliver her third child in mid-October, and the father has been identified as former Miami Dolphins football player Jordan Cameron, DailyMail.com has learned exclusively.

A source in South Florida’s Swedish community, which considers Nordegren a prominent member, tells DailyMail.com the former NFL star has been dating Nordegren for nearly three years.

‘They’ve kept it pretty quiet, but Elin has been visiting Jordan in California and they were spending months at a time together at her house in Florida,’ said the source, who asked not to be identified. ‘She hasn’t said if the new baby is a surprise or something they planned, but both love children. She’s due sometimes in mid-October.’

Nordegren, 39,  has two children with the recent Masters champion Woods – daughter Sam, 11, and son Charlie, 10 – and Cameron has a son, Tristan, who is 10.     

The couple are living in Elin’s $50 million mansion in Palm Beach, Florida according to public records.

Neither Elin nor Jordan responded to DailyMail.com requests for comment.

Elin was pictured showing off her baby bump in public for the first time as she cheered on her son at his flag football game earlier this month — inadvertently revealing to the world that she is pregnant with her third child.  

In a series of photos that were taken on Saturday, June 1, near her home, the Swedish former model is seen wearing a form-fitting black tank top accentuating her belly and gray sweatpants while hanging out with the other parents on the sidelines of the field.

Cameron has a son Tristan, who is 10 years old. Is that a Tiger they're holding?

When he retired from football two years ago at 28, Cameron, a Mormon who played for Brigham Young University before transferring to the University of Southern California, cited his son as the reason why he didn’t want to suffer more injuries.

He walked away from the game after four concussions in his six years in the NFL, four years with the Cleveland Browns and two in Miami.

Some football brain injuries have been shown to cause debilitating injuries in players, including death, depression and memory losses.

‘I want to be there for him,’ Cameron told ESPN in 2017. ‘And I want more kids, and I want to be present with them. I don’t want them dealing with things that we’ve seen some other guys are dealing with.’

At 30, Cameron is nine years younger than Nordegren, a former nanny who married Woods in 2004 then famously divorced the golfer six years later after it was revealed he was a sex addict who bedded dozens of porn stars, waitresses and escorts.

Nordegren is believed to have made in excess of $100 million in the 2010 divorce.

DailyMail.com is told Cameron and Nordegren hooked up in 2016, in the wake of the publication of photos of her skiing and getting cozy with Chris Cline, a much older coal magnate who lives next door to her in a wealthy beachside enclave of North Palm Beach.

Earlier this year, according to public records, Cameron moved in with Nordegren and started receiving his mail at her North Palm Beach house. The same records show the ball player owns a $2.1 million-house in Westlake Village, a fancy suburb of Los Angeles.

‘Jordan’s boy seems to get along great with Tiger’s children,’ the source said.

Nordegren, meanwhile, recently applied for, and received, a Florida state license as a mental health counselor. She recently started a company, EN Therapy, based in her mansion but there’s no indication she is seeing patients at the house or anywhere else.

Though she may be tired from her pregnancy, she opted to stand next to another mom who had her eyes on the football field instead of sitting down in the blue fold-up chair that was set up behind her. 

At one point, the soon-to-be mother-of-three was seen checking her cellphone, but she looked otherwise relaxed while watching the game.  

Elin made a similar appearance on the field a week later, wearing a black tank that clung to her baby bump and black leggings. 

This time, she wore a black baseball cap and a pair of flip flops to keep cool in the Florida heat.

In the pictures taken on Friday, June 7, Elin is chatting on her cellphone and rubbing her baby bump while carrying her blue fold-up chair on her shoulder.

The mom set her chair at the goal post and continued to talk on the phone while keeping her eyes on the field.   

Elin’s pregnancy has been kept under wraps, and a source told Radar Online that no one knew she was expecting until she appeared at one of her son’s games with her bump on display.   

‘When Elin showed up, no one knew she was pregnant,’ the person said. ‘She has to be a few months. If not a few months, then further.’ 

Elin didn’t appear to be wearing a wedding band or engagement ring at either of her son’s games, and it is unclear who the father of the child is.

The former model was last linked to billionaire coal magnate Chris Cline, whom she began dating after they met as neighbors in 2011. The two were rumored to have split in 2014, but they were spotted kissing while enjoying a ski vacation in St. Moritz, Switzerland, in 2016.

Both Elin and Chris keep a low public profile and have not spoken out about their relationship. She has also not discussed her recent pregnancy, other than stepping out with her bump on show. 

If the news has reached Tiger, it certainly doesn’t seem to be bothering him; he was seen smiling brightly during a practice round ahead of the 2019 U.S. Open in Pebble Beach, California, on Wednesday, shortly after it was first reported that Elin is pregnant. 

Unlike her former husband whose personal and professional lives have remained a public focus, former model Elin has kept out of the spotlight since she and Tiger divorced in 2010 following his infamous cheating scandal.  

Radar’s source also revealed that Tiger and his current girlfriend Erica Herman have been attending his children’s soccer and flag football games in recent months, while Elin has not been seen on the sidelines.

Elin and Tiger wed in 2004 and were just shy of their sixth wedding anniversary in 2009 when police were called to their home in Orlando, Florida. The golf star had smashed his car into a tree during what appeared to be a lover’s spat.

Within days, stories about Tiger cheating on Elin with dozens of strippers, waitresses, porn stars, lounge hostesses, and groupies led to their divorce in mid-2010.

Elin broke her silence about her divorce in 2014, telling People that she and Tiger were co-parenting with ease.  

‘I have moved on and I am in a good place,’ said Elin, who her earned her psychology degree from Rollins College that year. 

‘My relationship with Tiger is centered around our children and we are doing really good — we really are — and I am so happy that is the case. He is a great father.’ 

A year later, Tiger told Time that he and his ex-wife have a great relationship after their divorce. 

‘She’s one of my best friends,’ he said. 

‘We’re able to pick up the phone, and we talk to each other all the time. We both know that the most important things in our lives are our kids.’

In 2016, he elaborated on his comment during an appearance The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. 

‘It becomes two simple things, OK? We have Sam and we have Charlie,’ he said at the time. ‘And we love them so much that we are going to whatever it takes to make that work. That’s how it happened,’ he said to audience applause.

‘She’s been one of my best friends and I’ve talked to her about so many different things and she does the same thing with me back and forth,’ he explained. 

‘We communicate so much better now, it’s incredible. I wish we would have done that earlier on, but it’s been incredible to have a best friend like that.’ 

After his split from Elin in 2010, Tiger went on to date Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn, who he was in a relationship with for three years, from 2012 until 2015. 

At the time, Lindsey insisted that their break-up was mutual, and the result of conflicting work schedules, however DailyMail.com exclusively revealed in May 2015 that Tiger had cheated on the sporting superstar after he was eliminated from a golf tournament. 

‘He had a relapse in the sex department,’ a close friend revealed. ‘Lindsey found out about women again. Always while he’s on the road. Just like when he was with Elin.’ 

Tiger has been dating restaurant manager Erica since 2017; the couple made their public debut in October of that year, when she attended the Presidents Cup in New Jersey, wearing a shirt given to players’ wives and girlfriends.
