Dustin Johnson sprung to the top of the leaderboard at the Travelers Championship with an incredible round on Saturday, which naturally led many fans to social media with one question in mind — where is Paulina?
Paulina Gretzky, the daughter of NHL legend Wayne Gretzky, has been engaged to Johnson for many years. She used to be very active on social media, which was a great source of happiness for many fans. Those who flocked to her pages as Johnson was leading the Travelers Championship on Sunday did not discover much new content, however.
That said, all indications are that things are still going well with the couple. Johnson and Gretzky have two sons together, and Andrew Holleran of The Spun pointed out that Paulina shared a heartwarming video of her and Dustin after Johnson shot a 9-under 61 on Saturday.
So why hasn’t Paulina posted more content? We’re unsure, but it probably has a lot to do with her being busy raising two young kids. There have been rumors over the years that Gretzky’s relationship with Johnson was on rocky ground, but she’s still in the 2016 U.S. Open champion’s corner.
Paulina Gretzky has become a household name in part because she is the daughter of arguably the greatest hockey player to ever live, but also because she’s incredibly attractive. She’s never been shy about showing off her good looks on social media, and that is apparently something “The Great One” has learned to ignore.
According to a recent write-up in Hollywood Life, Wayne used to find it “mortifying” when Paulina would post photos of herself wearing very little on her Instagram account. Now, however, he is unfazed.
“Paulina’s sexy photos don’t really faze him,” the article says. “When she first started getting attention over the pics, he used to find it a bit mortifying, but now he just shrugs it off.
“Paulina is a grown woman, so it’s not like Wayne can tell her what she can and can’t post on social media. Even if he wanted to, it’s not really his business, at the end of the day. Wayne doesn’t look at Paulina’s social accounts, but he is proud of her. She is a smart, beautiful woman and a great mom, so there is a lot to be proud of.”
Paulina, of course, is engaged to PGA golfer Dustin Johnson. There was a time when it seemed like Wayne didn’t approve of the relationship, but that has changed too. The couple now has two kids together.
Even if Wayne doesn’t like the Instagram photos, all indications are that Paulina is successful and doing well in life. What more can a father ask for?

Johnson is part of the US team that will look to repeat as Ryder Cup champs after their triumph in Minnesota in 2016. He and Gretzky have been engaged for over five years but are going through some relationship issues.
A report said Johnson was cheating on Gretzky with a woman from their exclusive golf club in Southern California, but the woman denied that charge. The rumors popped up shortly after Gretzky scrubbed Johnson from her Instagram page.
The couple, who have two children together, are said to still be together and are getting along for at least this week.
Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky are still together as a couple despite a rumor of infidelity, according to a report.
TMZ Sports reported on Tuesday that Johnson and Gretzky have not broken up. The woman at the center of the alleged rift has also taken to Instagram to defend herself and state that she has never had an affair with Johnson.
On Monday, we published a story about Gretzky scrubbing Johnson from her Instagram page. Not long thereafter, British media outlet “The Sun” reported that a woman named Yassie Safai is at the center of problems between the professional golfer and his longtime fiancee.
The Sun says Safai “caused the sensational split” between Johnson and Gretzky.
They further reported that “Johnson and California socialite Yassie Safai are said to have struck up a relationship that has infuriated Gretzky.”
Johnson and Safai are said to have met at Sherwood Country Club, an exclusive club west of Los Angeles. The Sun even quoted a source who said that Safai causing a split between Johnson and Gretzky was the “talk of the club.”
Safai issued a statement on Instagram Tuesday to deny having any improper relationship with Johnson.
“I am not in a relationship with Dustin Johnson. Nor have we had any prior relationship,” Safai wrote. “I met Dustin Johnson at Sherwood Country Club. I have run into him at Sherwood maybe 4 times since then and yes briefly spoke with him, like I’m sure any avid golfer and member would.
“I am sure he is a great person but we do not have a close friendship. I have never met Paulina Gretzky and do not know the Gretzky family, but again, I am sure they are great people.
“I have no insight into the rumors around Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky’s relationship. I wish them nothing but the best. I just want to go back to living my normal life.”
Johnson and Gretzky have been engaged since Aug. 2013. They have two children.
PGA golfer Dustin Johnson has been engaged to Paulina Gretzky for years, but you wouldn’t know it if you looked at Gretzky’s Instagram page.
Those who follow both Johnson and Gretzky on Instagram have grown accustomed to photos of the two embracing on a yacht or posing with their children, 3-year-old Tatum and 1-year-old River. However, Barstool Sports noticed over the weekend that every photo of Johnson has been scrubbed from Gretzky’s Instagram page.
Strangely enough, even posts like one where Dustin and Paulina announced they are expecting their second child have been deleted. Photos of Gretzky remain on Johnson’s Instagram page, however.
There could be a logical explanation for why Paulina has deleted Dustin from her Instagram life, but we have seen instances in the past — like with this NFL player and his girlfriend — where such activity is the first sign of relationship trouble. Here’s hoping that isn’t the case for one of golf’s power couples.
Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky are adding a new member to their growing family.
Gretzky announced on Instagram late Friday night that the couple is expecting their second child.

Johnson and Gretzky, who are engaged, had their first baby — a boy named Tatum — in January 2015.
Dustin and Paulina, the daughter of NHL legend Wayne Gretzky, have been together for a few years now. They’ve been very public about their relationship, with Paulina not hesitating to slam social media trolls on Johnson’s behalf. Congratulations to them on their upcoming addition.
Dustin Johnson was one of a number of star athletes who chose to skip the Summer Olympics in Rio, and it doesn’t appear he is regretting his decision.
Over the weekend, Johnson shared a photo on Instagram that showed him enjoying some leisure time with his fiancee, Paulina Gretzky, on a boat. The post led to a number of comments from followers who believe Johnson should be ashamed of himself for skipping the Olympics.

Paulina was having none of that. After reading some of the criticism, she unloaded on the trolls and said Johnson worked his entire career to win a major championship, not a gold medal. Twitter user @MikePette captured a screenshot:
Dustin and Paulina always seem to enjoy their time together. You can see another example of that in this video. It’s certainly understandable that she grew tired of the criticism, though engaging the trolls only gives them what they want. Sometimes you just can’t help yourself.
