The Great One is going to be a grandfather. That’s right, Wayne Gretzky and Janet Jones‘ eldest daughter, Paulina, announced on Instagram that she is expecting her first child with fiancé Dustin Johnson.
Paulina captioned the pic, in which she is doing the requisite belly cup,
“@djohnsonpga & i are so excited to finally share with you all our amazing news..we’re having a baby!!,”.
Not only is it a sweet shot but it also shows that she might already be pretty far along. Most celebs (or celebrity offspring) have to announce fairly early on if they want to reveal their joyous news to the world in their own way but Paulina seems to have been able to hide it for a while now. Lucky her.
Paulina has been with professional golfer Johnson since 2012 and the couple got engaged last year. There were reports that he was suspended from the sport for six months after allegedly testing positive for cocaine — which kinda-sorta coincided with stories that Wayne wanted his future son-in-law to clean up his act and stop partying (though he has since thrown his support behind Dustin). Johnson refuted the suspension rumours, though he admitted he was taking time away from the Tour to “seek professional help for personal challenges.” Perhaps he might want to extend his leave of absence until after the baby is born and focus on Daddy time.
Congrats to the couple and to the future grandparents. With Wayne as their grandpa and Dustin as their dad, sports are bound to be in his/her blood. Only time will tell if it’ll be hockey or golf. Or neither. Maybe modelling?
