Earlier today, Tiger Woods‘ beleaguered wife Elin Nordegren stepped out — sans wedding ring — this afternoon with the couple’s two children, Sam, 2, and 10-month-old Charlie, and a pair of other adults for lunch at an Orlando-area Thai restaurant, where the former model revealed to OK! that, in spite of all the negative public attention being focused on her marriage, the kids “are doing just fine.”

And that’s exactly how witnesses at Ayothaya Thai Cuisine described the pair of youngsters. “They looked happy and healthy,” one onlooker tells OK!. “It seemed like they had no idea there was any sort of problem.”

Meanwhile, it does appear that the events of recent weeks have begun to take their toll on Elin. “She looks bone-thin,” another witness tells OK!. “And her conversation with the other adults was very intense, especially in comparison to smiling little Sam and Charlie.”

In a poll of OK! readers yesterday, almost 70% of voters said a divorce would be better for the children than for Tiger and Elin to stay together.
