Paulina Gretzky and Dustin Johnson are expecting their first baby

Congratulations to Paulina Gretzky and Dustin Johnson!

The daughter of Canadian hockey legend Wayne Gretzky has announced that she is expecting her first baby with her pro-golfer fiancé, Dustin.

Paulina, 25, shared the happy news with her 329,000 Instagram followers on Wednesday morning with a candid snap, which shows the mom-to-be cradling her baby bump.

Paulina and Dustin had been dating for a year when they became engaged in July 2013. Since then, the beautiful blond model landed her first-ever Maxim and Golf Digest covers, but had taken time off in recent months to enjoy a rather quiet summer with her family.

Dustin, too, had taken a leave of absence from the golf tour this summer, citing "personal challenges."

Paulina and Dustin, 30, were expected to marry this fall, though it’s uncertain whether the wedding will take now place before or after the birth.

“We don't have a date yet, but it will be in the fall of this year,” Dustin told reporters prior to a tournament in January.
