Dustin Johnson, Paulina Gretzky announce birth of son

Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky became parents on Monday, with Gretzky giving birth to the engaged couple's first child, a son.

"Paulina and I are happy to announce the arrival of our baby boy, who was born in Los Angeles on Monday morning," Johnson said Tuesday night in a statement released through his management company. "Both Paulina and the baby are healthy, resting comfortably and in great spirits!

"We sincerely appreciate the outpouring of love and support we have received and plan to release further details in the coming days!"

At this point, the child's name and other birthing particulars aren't available.

Johnson, who has been on a leave of absence from the PGA Tour since July 31, 2014, has said he would return to professional golf after the child's birth, mentioning the Farmers Insurance Open as a likely candidate. The Monday delivery seems to keep that in play, if not the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am the next week.
