Paulina Gretzky confirms she is having a boy in glamorous Instagram photo

It’s been a very happy holiday for Paulina Gretzky. The pregnant NHL heiress celebrated Christmas this year by confirming via Instagram that she and her pro-golfer fiancé, Dustin Johnson, are having a boy.

In a glamorous photo, the mother-to-be can be seen posing in a curve-hugging black gown alongside her sharply dressed beau and brother while cradling her baby bump.

Merry Christmas Everyone!! Ps..We're having a BOY ❤️

“Merry Christmas Everyone! Ps..We’re having a BOY” she captioned the snap.

Earlier this month, friends and family attended Paulina’s baby shower, where she was reportedly gifted with some luxe items from Pottery Barn, including a $1,100 changing table, an $800 dresser and an $800 crib. The couple were also presented with an adorable white onesie that reads, "My daddy golfs better than your daddy."

However, it was the colour of a number of hot-ticket items on the registry – including a navy-blue Gingham Nursery Robe – that fuelled speculation over the baby’s gender, as first reported by Hello! Online.

Indeed, December was the month that kept on giving for Paulina, who celebrated her 26th birthday on Dec. 19 and was whisked away on a surprise winter getaway - complete with a helicopter ride! - by her doting fiancé.
