Paulina Gretzky, Dustin Johnson Name Their Baby Tatum

Sometimes it's best to just stick with tradition!

Paulina Gretzky and fiance Dustin Johnson have named their baby boy Tatum, sticking with the Gretzky family tradition of using names that begin with the letter T for all their sons. (Paulina's brothers are named Trevor, Ty and Tristan.)

On Thursday, Jan. 22, Dustin retweeted a photo posted by DustinJohnsonGolf that showed the proud papa kissing his newborn son, who was wrapped tightly in a blanket.

The pic was captioned, "What really matters. Little Tatum and parents DJ & Paulina."

Update: Paulina shared a close-up photo of her newborn baby on Instagram on Friday, and obviously he's adorable. Gretzky captioned the pic, "So in love with my little boy.Tatum Gretzky Johnson ♡ @djohnsonpga." Awww!

Paulina, the daughter of Canadian NHL legend Wayne Gretzky, gave birth to her and Dustin's first child on Monday, Jan. 19 in a hospital in L.A.

Dustin released the following statement expressing his joy and gratitude:

"Paulina and I are happy to announce the arrival of our baby boy, who was born in Los Angeles on Monday morning. 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! Sincerely, Dustin."

Finally on Wednesday, the world got their first look at their adorable baby boy when Paulina shared a snap of her and Dustin snuggling with Tatum while she was resting in her hospital bed.

Already, the 26-year-old Golf Digest cover girl is itching to get back to her pre-baby figure. On Thursday, Paulina posted a meme from the film "The Lion King" on her other Instagram account that read, "I just can't be lean!"—a reference to the lyrics, "I just can't wait to be king." Paulina commented "Too soon?"

Knowing her, she'll be back in her bikinis in no time! Meanwhile, let's see more pics of baby Tatum!
