Paulina Gretzky Teases Dustin Johnson Wedding Weekend

Paulina Gretzky and Dustin Johnson are about to get married. On Thursday, Gretzkty, 33, took to her Instagram story to post a photo of herself boarding a private jet with the caption, “She’s ready,” according to PEOPLE. She also shared a selfie with her sister, Sara, and bridesmaid, Kristina Melinchenko, captioned “Gong at the chapel.” Another post showed NHL legend Wayne Gretzky’s daughter exiting the plane with the wedding song playing in the background.

Gretzky also shared a photo of herself and her professional golf finances holding hands. Other posts said the wedding will take place on Saturday, April 23 and will be getting married in Tennessee. The wedding is a long time coming as the couple got engaged in 2013 and share two sons, River, 4, and Tatum, 7. Last year, Gretzky appeared on the Pillows & Beer podcast and opened up about her long engagement to Johnson.

“I just did things my way, I just didn’t want to listen to how other people saw things,” Gretzky said. “I fell in love with someone so fast and we had the best thing that happened to us so fast. This guy [Johnson] has no downtime. The stress of getting everything ready for a wedding would take over mine and his life and what I needed to be was his teammate. I needed to be there for him to support him, love him and make sure he did what he needed to do.”

Gretzky then spoke about Johnson’s work ethic. “Dustin worked for everything, his college coach told me he was going to work at McDonald’s! He’s a guy who worked from day one,” she said.. “He’s in his element. That’s what he does: golf, and it’s such a tough sport. I’m not one to get excited (at PGA Tour events), I don’t understand I don’t know how people jump up and down, I don’t know how they do all that stuff. It’s just not in my DNA.”

Gretzky and Johnson were last seen at the August Masters in Georgia earlier this month. In 2020, Johnson won the Masters and the couple celebrated by vacationing in St. Barths, a location where Gretzkty shared a steamy photo on Instagram.
