It’s another boy for Dustin Johnson, 32, and Paulina Gretzky, 28.
The couple welcomed their second child on Monday via a planned C-section, making their 2-year-old son Tatum a big brother. ESPN senior writer Ian O’Connor shared a pic of the newborn on Twitter.
Dustin Johnson plan for now–Paulina Gretzky C-section tomorrow, fly to US Open on Tuesday, repeat as champ on Sunday.

The 2016 U.S. Open winner welcomed his second child a day before arriving in Wisconsin Tuesday night, set to defend his crown at the U.S. Open in Erin Hills. His defence almost never happened, as he had stated he would not compete this year if his fiancee had not given birth before the tournament began.

Given that Gretzky just gave birth, Johnson will have at least one family member along for the journey at the U.S. Open this year, his brother Austin. The Johnson brothers’ “relentless rivalry” is examined in a new feature by Golf magazine.
