Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky made their engagement Instagram official on Saturday night. Then, DJ tweeted the news with a picture of the massive rock ring on Sunday morning to declare it Twitter official. 


DJ and Paulina, Wayne Gretzky’s daughter, were spotted together at the start of the year in Kapalua. The happy couple have been dating for around eight months after Johnson split with his longtime girlfriend Amanda Caulder last winter.

Only recently has Dustin opened up about their relationship to the press in an interview with Entertainment Tonight Canada.

I [came home] on Thursday and I was really frustrated and in a bad mood, but she always makes me smile and feel better and tells me you will play better tomorrow, it’s OK,” he said.

The two met at a dinner hosted by Paulina’s parents, Wayne and Janet. “We were friends for a long time before we started dating,” he admits. But don’t expect him to be tutoring Wayne on the golf course–because he apparently doesn’t need any help.

Since the start of the year, they’ve posted plenty of cute pictures together on Instagram and Twitter, and according to those close to DJ (and from my own personal observations), he was absolutely smitten.

Best of luck to the Dustin and Paulina! One thing’s for sure, their bachelor and bachelorette parties will surely be crazy fun, not to mention their wedding.

Let’s take a look back at some of our favorite photos from Paulina’s Instagram.
