Paulina Gretzky, Dustin Johnson Welcome Baby Boy

Just a day after an in-depth interview was previewed on Sports Illustrated and about his time away from the PGA Tour, golfer Dustin Johnson and new bride Paulina Gretzky welcome a baby boy into the world Monday.

Paulina and I are happy to announce the arrival of our baby boy, who was born in Los Angeles on Monday morning,” Dustin Johnson wrote in a statement sent to media outlets. “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!”

No name or weight was given in the statement. The couple announced it was a boy in December, after Gretzky, 26, tweeted out a picture of herself clearly pregnant to announce the upcoming birth back in September.

Johnson has won 8 PGA titles since coming on the scene in 2008, but took a leave of absence last summer, despite being a top contender for the US Ryder Cup.

Reports of failed drug tests have persisted, but Johnson and his management team has vociferously denied them.

The birth also makes a grandfather out of NHL legend Wayne Gretzky, which makes people like your author feel really, really old.

Johnson is expected to make his 2015 debut at either Pebble Beach or Torrey Pines next month.
