Paulina Mary Jean Gretzky was born on December 19th of 1988, in Los Angeles California. She is the eldest child of NHL legend Wayne Gretzky and actress Janet Jones. Paulina has four siblings. One sister and three brothers.

Her mother, Janet Jones, is known for her role as Kate in Police Academy 5: Assignment Miami Beach. She also appeared in the films, A League Of Their Own and Alpha Dog. In 1995 Janet was one of the stars in the fitness film, The Firm: Total Body – Low Impact Aerobics.
Paulina spent her formative years in Los Angeles when her father was on the roster of The LA Kings. In 1996 the family moved to St Louis, Missouri, so that Wayne could take up a contract with the Blues. His stay was short-lived as he left later that year to join The New York Rangers.
Paulina was, therefore, educated at Nightingale Bamford, an independent female school on the Upper East Side of New York. While at school, she made her mark in the music industry.
After school, she decided to focus her attention on a career in modeling and has even made several cameo appearances in films since 2006. Finally, Paulina is engaged to golfer Dustin Johnson, and the couple has two sons.
Even though Paulina knows her way around a golf course, her biggest connection to the game is her husband, current world number one, Dustin Johnson. However, Paulina was enrolled in tennis and golf camps as a youngster. It was handball what she preferred, but she stopped playing in the sixth grade.
The blonde bombshell is often seen at Augusta National, where she caddies for Dustin during the annual Par 3 challenge, a day before the major kicks off.
Paulina’s singing talents shone to light when she sang “I Will Remember You” by Sarah McLachlan at The Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton. 57,000 fans watched on as the eldest of the Gretzky children kicked off proceedings for the 2003 Heritage Classic Weekend.
The following year she was asked to sing the Canadian National Anthem at the semi-final of The World Cup of Hockey, which saw the Canuck’s take on The Czech Republic.
In 2006 she recorded the single Collecting Dust, featured on season 2 of the MTV-produced reality television show Laguna Beach. While she has recorded plenty of music over the years, she has not released much into the public domain.
Gretzky has been on course for a modeling career since she appeared in the August 2005 edition of Flare, a Canadian fashion magazine. Her mother Janet appeared on the cover of the same magazine in June 1988. Only a few months before giving birth to Paulina. The eldest Gretzky sibling appeared in Flare for a second time in February 2013.
Furthermore, she has appeared on the cover of Golf Digest, Maxim, and Sauce Hockey. Paulina appeared on the cover March/April 2021 edition of the Cigar Aficionado. Along with her fiance Dustin Johnson.
Her parents appeared on the cover of the same magazine in the March/April edition of 1997.
Finally, on the modeling front, Paulina’s Instagram account contains various images of her, posing in swimwear and other fashionable outfits and showcasing her modeling prowess to her 1 million followers.
Gretzky turned down an offer from Playboy to pose nude after she realized her fiance, Johnson, was not comfortable with the idea. He reportedly told Paulina that he would double whatever they were offering, for her to not go through with it.
Paulina’s acting career has not reached the same heights as her music or modeling endeavors. However, she has still managed to make her way onto the screen alongside some heavy hitters.
In 2009 Paulina played a minor role in the movie Fame, and in 2012 landed a spot on Guns, Girls, and Gambling, as The Deputy, alongside Christian Slater.
Her most recent role saw her play Daisy, a bikini girl, in the 2013 film Grown Ups 2, which starred Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade, and Salma Hayek.
Gretzky has often copped flack for sharing raunchy photos with her followers on social media. She shut down her Twitter account in November 2011 after reportedly being told to do so by Wayne, given the revealing nature of the posts. While Paulina is still active on social media, she does not post as often as she once did.
Paulina is engaged to US Pro golfer and current world number one, Dustin Johnson. The pair met in 2011 after Janet Jones had played around with Johnson at The Pro-Am of Tiger’s Sherwood tournament. Jones invited Dustin to dinner with the family, which is where he met Paulina.
Within two years of meeting, the couple got engaged in 2013, and they are yet to marry. Nonetheless, there is speculation that a wedding is imminent. Although the couple hit a rough patch in 2018, they remain committed to one another and their two sons.
A report surfaced in 2018 that Dustin had become close with California socialite Yassie Safai. However, both Safai and Johnson refuted these claims.
Dustin and Paulina have two sons, Tatum and River Jones. Tatum is the eldest of the two and was born on January 9, 2015. The youngest son, River Jones, was born on June 12, 2017.
