DJ Young welcomes first child, baby girl Leighton

DALLAS, TX – DJ Young recently added a new job title to his resume: Dad.

Young and his partner, Courtney Horvath, welcomed their first child, Leighton Reign Young, on March 23.

DJ and Courtney announced Leighton's arrival via Instagram, posting several adorable photographs of their newborn in pink onesies.

In January, Horvath revealed that the couple was expecting.

The pickleball pro popped the question on Oct. 13, 2023.


Young turned pro in 2018. Horvath, meanwhile, is quite the pickleball player herself. She regularly plays 4.5 and 5.0 women’s doubles and mixed doubles at PPA tournaments.

I think we can safely say that Leighton will join other pro kiddos who grow up alongside the pickleball court.
