Paulina Gretzky and Dustin Johnson have been engaged since 2013 and also have two sons together, River and Tatum.

We know a lot about Dustin Johnson because, well he is a superstar in the world of golf and sports in general. But what do we know about Paulina Gretzky, his gorgeous model fiancée? Let’s find out!

Everything About Paulina Gretzky – All You Might Want to Know!

Let me begin by informing you that her father is Wayne Gretzky, the hockey legend. Born in 1988, this 33-year-old model, singer, and actress has certainly carved out a place for herself in the entertainment industry. And her social media photos simply just add more (well-deserved) hype to her personality.

Paulina Gretzky was born and brought up in Los Angeles. In 1988, the year she was born, her father Wayne was playing for Angeles Kings. Prior to that, he completed 10 seasons at Edmonton Oilers. And at the Kings, another 8 seasons before joining St. Louis Blues, which was in 1996. In the same year, he signed a 3-year contract with the New York Rangers.

So that was his career timeline. No doubt, Wayne Gretzky is known as one of the most remarkable hockey players in the history of the NHL. So that was Paulina’s father for you. Now let’s talk about her…

Paulina Gretzky Is A Model

Paulina became a part of the entertainment industry from a very young age, probably why she didn’t attend college either. Her stunning cover (modeling debut) for Flare magazine, the 2005 August issue, got her into the limelight. She also appeared on the cover of the 2013 December issue of Maxim. And then again on Golf Digest in May 2014.

So she has made it to enough magazine covers all these years, which is reflective of her success as a model. When interviewed for Golf Digest back in 2014, Paulina said that she visited the golf course not more than only 10 times a year.

She revealed that her interest in golf hadn’t developed then. Paulina’s mother used to send her off to golf camps and tennis camps when she was little. So that explains the lack of appreciation for the former sport.

Paulina Gretzky would even tell father Gretzky to not play golf when she was very young because she wanted him to spend time with her. How cute, adorable, and now even ironic is that!

Paulina Gretzky Was Also A Singer

She was also a very talented singer. Have you heard “Collecting Dust”? This song by Paulina was featured on the popular MTV show called Laguna Beach. “Disappointed”, “Deep Breathe”, “Sunshine”, “Secret Assassin”, and “Miss You Later” are some of her other songs.

Paulina also performed, her singing debut, in 2013 at a game played by Edmonton Oilers where she sang “I Will Remember You.” Although she doesn’t make music anymore.

Paulina Gretzky Is Engaged to Dustin Johnson

Both met back in 2009. However, that’s not when they started dating, not officially though. Gretzky and Johnson became official in the early months of 2013. And got engaged in the same year. They haven’t yet walked down the aisle, and the reasons for that could be many. Nevertheless, the couple are still together and seem to be heading on pretty strong!

Dustin Johnson once wrote on Twitter that their relationship, just like any other, has been through ups and downs. He also said that despite those struggles, there’s still love between them and that both want to continue to stay committed to each other and their family.

Paulina Gretzky, who admitted to never having been interested in golf, became more involved with the game after meeting Dustin Johnson. She appeared on the cover of Golf Digest magazine as well. And needless to say, she made several appearances with Johnson himself at many golfing tournaments.

She was once his caddie even – this happened at the Master Par 3 event back in 2016. No denying that Paulina has been the biggest cheerleader for Dustin. She was there when he secured the 2020 Masters win at Augusta, GA.

Currently, Johnson and Gretzky live in a home in Florida with their two sons – Tatum (born in 2015) and River (born in 2017). Paulina has amassed a million Instagram followers where she posted that they were going to have a boy at the time when she was pregnant with her second son.

As to when are they planning to tie the knot, Johnson and Gretzky announced that the wedding would take place in 2021, the end of the year. But that didn’t happen. What happened in December 2021 instead was that the couple with their friends spent $25,000 for the birthday celebrations of Paulina Gretzky (33 years old now).

Paulina’s Mother Is Janet Jones, An Actress

Janet Jones, an actress who appeared in many films in the ‘80s and ‘90s. If you’ve watched ‘The Flamingo Kid’, then you probably know who Paulina Gritzsky’s mother is. She was also a part of many stage productions – Snow White Live, Staying Alive, and Annie.

Paulina Gretzky herself has made her appearances in films. In 2013’s Grown Ups 2, in 2012’s Guns, Girls, and Gambling, and 2009’s Fame.

Janet Jones was also a model, her semi-nude cover poster on Playboy magazine, 1987 issue, surely got a lot of attention. She has 5 kids with Wayne Gretzky, the eldest daughter is Paulina. Wayne and Janet got married in 1988, the year Paulina was born.

Paulina Is Not Very Active On Social Media

More than one million Instagram followers, Paulina Gretzky is not a social media kind of person. Even though she posts on Instagram, she isn’t the most active celebrity on that platform. A million followers without posting regularly, just imagine how many more there would had she been regularly posting pictures!

Jim Furyk

One of the PGA TOUR’s most recognizable and talented golfers, Jim Furyk was born on May 12, 1970 in West Chester, Pennsylvania. It seems like Furyk was born to play golf; his father Mike as an assistant pro at Edgmont Country club, and young Jim was raised into the game. Jim Furyk’s only golf instruction came from his father; and many note that might account for his unusual—yet effective—swing. In addition to Edgmont Country Club, Mike Furyk also served as head pro at Uniontown Country Club.
