Paulina Gretzky Comforts Dustin Johnson After He Loses U.S. Open to Jordan Spieth by One Stroke
Johnson was beaten by 21-year-old wunderkind Jordan Speith
Dustin Johnson didn’t look too upset over Sunday’s devastating U.S. Open loss. But then again, we don’t all have Paulina Gretzky to comfort us in times of need.
The 26-year-old model rushed over to her fiancé after he was beaten by 21-year-old wunderkind Jordan Spieth on the 18th hole. At just three feet from the hole, Johnson missed an easy putt that would’ve forced a playoff. Even Spieth was surprised by his win. “I’m in shock,” he said.
Paulina gave her fiancé a sweet peck and then passed Johnson their 5-month-old son, Tatum.
Earlier in the week, Gretzky posted a pic of Tatum on a private jet. “See you soon daddy!!” she captioned the photo.
Johnson, 31, has been very vocal about how important his family is to him. “From the first day he’s born, your perspective on life completely changes,” he said in March after the birth of his son. “Things that were important aren’t important anymore. He’s the only thing that’s really important.”
“Dustin’s the best dad, he’s my best friend,” added Gretzky at the time. “He’s been so supportive with me and we’re just there for each other. I couldn’t be happier for him.”
