Paulina Gretzky can’t seem to keep her distance from the world of sports. Even though the actress is not associated with any kind of sports, she has always found herself in the company of professional athletes. Born to professional ice- hockey player Wayne Gretzky, Paulina was raised in a creative household. Even though Paulina is closed to her father, she took a career path inspired by her mother, Janet Jones. When she got engaged, Paulina simply changed sports instead of graduating from the world of sports. She got engaged to professional golfer Dustin Johnson and the pair are yet to tie the knot. In this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Paulina Gretzky.
Paulina Gretzky was born on the 19th of December, 1988, in Los Angeles California. Born to Wayne Gretzky and Janet Jonas, Paulina comes from an affluent household. Her father is considered to be one of the all-time greats in NHL and holds the title for the leading scorer in NHL history, with more goals and assists than any other player. On the other hand, Paulina’s mother, Janet Jonas, is an American actress who made appearances in movies including Annie (1982), Staying Alive (1983), Snow White Live (1980), The Beastmaster (1982), Grease 2 (1982), The Flamingo Kid (1984), A Chorus Line (1985), and American Anthem (1987). As a young kid, Paulina spent most of her time with her four siblings, brothers Ty, Trevor, and Tristan Gretzky and sister Emma Gretzky.
After graduating from a local high school in Canada, Paulina turned down an offer to go to college and started her professional career as a model, singer, and actress. Over the years, Paulina has made appearances in several movies including Grown Ups 2 (2013), Fame (2009), and Guns, Girls and Gambling (2012).
While still working on her career as an actress, Paulina got the chance to model for prominent magazines including Flare and Gold Digest. While her acting career has come to a holt, Paulina continues her work as a model.
A pop singer, Paulina has also dabbled into the music industry. In 2013, her latest single “Collecting Dust” was featured in the reality TV show, Laguna Beach. The song was an instant hit with the fans and Paulina released a DVD of the single alongside the release of MTV’s Laguna Beach Season 2. Paulina made her stage debut in 2003 when she performed “I Will Remember You” at an Edmonton Oilers game.
Paulina is engaged to professional golfer, Dustin Johnson. The pair met during early 2013 and have been together ever since. Even though they got engaged after seven months of dating in 2013, the pair are yet to tie the knot. In their time together, the pair have given birth to two baby boys, Tatum Gretzky Johnson who was born on January 19, 2015, and River Jones Johnson who was born on June 12, 2017.
While the pair have enjoyed a strong relationship for most of their time together, rumors of a break-up sparked when Paulina deleted all photos of Dustin from her Instagram. But Justin quashed the rumors of a breakup by a single tweet which read,
“Every relationship goes through its ups and downs, but most importantly, we love each other very much and are committed to being a family. Thank you for your love and support.”
