The Great One is a grandfather!
Yes, Wayne Gretzky’s daughter, Paulina Gretzky, 26, and her fiancé Dustin Johnson, 30, welcomed a baby boy on Monday morning (January 19). They announced the news in a statement through Dustin’s management team.
According to the statement, mom and baby are healthy, and all are happy. No news on the name, yet.
A bit about Dustin: He’s a pro golfer—eight-time PGA Tour winner. He’s been off for six months, however, due to “personal issues,” which were presumed to have to do with the drug tests he failed last summer. In a Sports Illustrated interview he gave recently, however, Dustin claimed his time off had nothing to do with drugs, and that he’s doing well.
“Over these past four or five months I’ve really grown up,” he said, “and I am starting to become the person I want my kids to look up to.”
Paulina and Dustin announced their pregnancy back in September on Instagram, posting the above photo, along with the caption, “@djohnsonpga & i are so excited to finally share with you all our amazing news…we’re having a baby!!”
Congrats to the family!
