Paulina Gretzky and Dustin Johnson Announce Engagement
Sorry, Studs, Paulina Gretzky is no longer accepting applications.
The daughter of Canadian hockey icon Wayne Gretzky (perhaps best known ’round the Twitterverse as a blonde bombshell who never met a two-piece she didn’t want to flaunt) has accepted a marriage proposal from seven-time PGA-winning golfer Dustin Johnson.
The wedding news was confirmed through Dustin’s Instagram. On Saturday night, the would-be-groom shared an image of the engagement sparkler he presented to Paulina, accompanied by the caption:
“She said yes!!!!! @paulinagretzky”
The couple, who’ve only been dating since January 2013, have been very public about their romance. Both are fond of posting snapshots of themselves across the social network. It was Paulina’s famous dad who made the first introduction; it was the beginning of a friendship, Dustin, 29, recalls:
“They invited me over for dinner with a few other golfers and that’s where I met Paulina [...] Laughs, we were friends for a long time before we started dating.”
The South Carolina native doesn’t bat an eyelash about 24-year-old Paulina’s headline-making appearances on social media sites.
“It’s kind of funny. But ya know, I don’t watch TMZ, I never know. Obviously she tells me or someone will text me, ‘Your girl was just on TMZ,’ or something. But it’s whatever. She’s a really pretty girl and she takes a picture of her in a bikini and it goes up on TMZ. How many pictures are there of girls in bikinis? She isn’t doing anything that anyone else isn’t doing.”
