The Little Great One is finally here – Dustin Johnson and fiancé Paulina Gretzky have welcomed their first baby, a boy, according to a statement from Johnson released by his agent on Jan. 19.
“Paulina and I are happy to announce the arrival of our baby boy, who was born in Los Angeles on Monday morning,” the statement read. “Both Paulina and the baby are healthy, resting comfortably and in great spirits!
“We sincerely appreciate the outpouring of love and support we have received and plan to release further details in the coming days!”
The couple has not revealed the name of their baby, though some speculate it will start with ‘T’ in the tradition of Wayne Gretzky’s sons Tristan, Trevor and Ty.
Johnson and Gretzky announced they were expecting in September but didn’t reveal the due date.
Johnson has not played on the PGA Tour since July after taking a “personal leave of absence.” Golf.com reported the leave of absence was due to a failed drug test. In the meantime, Johnson has broken Tiger Woods’ course record at Sherwood Country Club and sat down alongside father-in-law-to-be Wayne for an interview with Sports Illustrated.
