What We Know About Paulina Gretzky's Future Wedding To Dustin Johnson

After an engagement that lasted over eight years, Paulina Gretzky and Dustin Johnson were finally able to plan their wedding. The two originally started dating in 2013, and were engaged shortly after, per People. They have two sons together, River Jones and Tatum, and wedding plans appeared to take a backseat to family life. In 2018, rumors circulated that the couple had called it quits, but Johnson clarified in a tweet that he and Gretzky were still together. "Every relationship goes through its ups and downs, but most importantly, we love each other very much and are committed to being a family," he wrote.

Following such a lengthy engagement, many fans speculated that the hockey heiress and golf pro had secretly tied the knot. "I don't know if people know if me and Dustin are really married or not. We're not. We're so in love," Gretzky said on the "Netchicks" podcast in January (via The Sun). Gretzky spoke about the couple's choice to delay the nuptials in May while appearing on the "Pillows and Beer" podcast. "The most important thing was my kids, Dustin and my career," she said, via Hollywood Life. She added that after Johnson's win at the 2020 Masters Tournament, the couple decided it was time to make their union official. "So, after he won the Masters, I said let's do it, this makes sense," Gretzky added. Over the months, she slowly leaked out information about the wedding. Keep reading to find out more.
