In an interview with Golfweek, Johnson spoke about having kids, and how it has changed him completely. “The best thing in the world is having kids. We’re lucky to have two wonderful boys,” he said. It’s really been amazing, watching them grow up and enjoying the time. They get to travel with us a bunch. Tatum’s in kindergarten. They’re getting a little older.”

He added that he can always see a little of himself and Paulina in them, even in their personalities.
