Emilia (Emma) Gretzky

Emma, now 21, is currently a student at Southern Methodist University (SMU) where she is an active member of their tennis team. The content creator has been in a relationship with SMU football player Stone Eby — who attended her birthday celebration — for over a year.

Tristan Gretzky

The second-youngest sibling in the Gretzky clan, Tristan, 23, has kept a relatively low profile on social media. He attended Pepperdine University and was a member of their golf team. Tristan also dabbled in acting when he was a child, starring in the 2006 film "Two Tickets to Paradise."

Trevor Gretzky

Following in his father's athletic footsteps, Trevor, 31, pursued a career in sports, albeit switching the ice for the baseball diamond. Though initially drafted by the Chicago Cubs, Trevor has since transitioned out of professional baseball, and into the world of showbiz. He is now an actor and film producer, known for his roles in “Spiral” and “Apex,” both released in 2021. Trevor got engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Ashley Malinchak, in April 2023.

Paulina Gretzky, the eldest and most high-profile sibling of the Gretzky family with over a million followers on Instagram, is a multi talented public figure with a career spanning music, acting, and modelling.

Paulina's acting portfolio includes roles in movies such as "In God We Trust," "Grown Ups 2," "Fame," and "Guns, Girls and Gambling." As a model, she made a striking debut on the cover of 'Flare' magazine in 2005, and later graced the cover of 'Golf Digest' in 2014.
