It's a boy: DJ, Gretzky welcome first child

RSS

Dustin Johnson's fiancee Paulina Gretzky gave birth to the couple's first child Monday.

Johnson's agent, David Winkle, released a statement Tuesday on behalf of the 30-year-old pro.

"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!"

Among the details yet to be released is the name of the couple's new addition.

Johnson has been on a personal leave from professional golf since July, though a Golf.com report indicated he had been suspended by the PGA Tour for six months for failing multiple drug tests. In his first interview since taking his leave, Johnson told Sports Illustrated this week that he is "starting to become the person I want my kids to look up to."

Johnson has indicated that he would not return to competitive golf until Gretzky gave birth. He is expected to make next month's Farmers Insurance Open his first start of the season.

Both DJ and Paulina uploaded the following picture of the baby to their Instagram accounts on Wednesday:
