Paulina Gretzky and fiancé Dustin Johnson welcome second baby boy

By Hayley Bradbrook


Paulina Gretzky and her fiancé Dustin Johnson are now proud parents of another baby boy! The 28-year-old daughter of NHL legend Wayne Gretzky gave birth to her second son, River, on Monday (June 12) in Los Angeles. The new arrival joins big brother Tatum, 2.


Paulina shared the first picture of her newborn son on Instagram Stories. The new mother of two cozied up in bed with her boys for the sweet family snap.

Shortly after news of River's arrival, ESPN host Ian O’Connor hopped on Twitter to post a picture of the little boy, seemingly sent to him by Dustin. In the snap, the newest Johnson looks adorable as he sleeps peacefully in his father’s arms while wearing a pink and blue knitted hat and swaddled in a white blanket.

“Meet the beautiful baby boy of Paulina Gretzky & Dustin Johnson. Name to come,” Ian captioned the picture.

The couple’s baby arrived in the nick of time! Pro golfer Dustin was present for the birth of his son before hopping on a plane headed to Wisconsin to prepare for the start of the U.S. Open on Thursday (June 15). Reigning champ Dustin is hoping to claim the trophy again on Sunday, which happens to coincide with his first Father’s Day as a dad of two.

Since Tatum’s arrival in 2015, there has been an on-going argument between Dustin and Wayne as to which sport the little boy will take up. The Great One insists that the toddler is destined to win the Stanley Cup."Dustin thinks he's going to hit golf balls first, but I think he's going to skate first," he once told ET Canada. Now, only time will tell if #99 will step aside for his new grandson to pick golf clubs over a hockey stick.
