Janet Gretzky Instagram: Proof She And Wayne Win At The Whole Grandparent Thing

Posted: Updated:

We’d be lying if we said we didn’t think the Gretzkys would make the coolest grandparents. And now, thanks to Instagram, we have proof!

The Great One and his wife Janet became first-time grandparents in January 2015 after their eldest daughter Paulina gave birth to a baby boy.

The 27-year-old model and her fiancé, pro-golfer Dustin Johnson, named their son Tatum, following the Gretzky tradition of naming sons with the letter T.

Since Tatum’s birth, Wayne and Janet have been using Instagram to prove that they’re definitely winning at this whole grandparent thing.

Here are their most shining examples:

When Janet created adorable hashtags just for Tatum.

We love being grandparents 💞#babyTatum #handsomehusbandWayne
