Dustin Johnson Son: Who Is River Jones Johnson?
River Jones-Johnson is a 5-year-old boy but has already struck the media since his birth as the son of the golf star Dustin Johnson. One of the greatest ice hockey players in history, Wayne Gretzky, was raised by Paulina, his mother.
Johnson’s parents have been together for a long time, but they haven’t yet decided on a wedding date. In addition, he has an older brother. Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, welcomed Johnson into the world on June 12, 2017.
After her fiancé’s victory at the Genesis Open on the Riviera Course in suburban Los Angeles and his ascension to the top of the Official World Golf Ranking, River’s mother decided to name him after him. It’s, therefore, possible that the initial name could be a reference to the event.
