The Meaning Behind his Name

He was named by his mother, Paulina. She chose the name after her fiancé won the Genesis Open in the Riviera Course in suburban Los Angeles

He secured his coveted number one rank in the Official World Golf Ranking. Hence, his first name is linked to the big event. 

River's middle name Jones is taken from the maiden name of Paulina's mother whose name is Janet Jones.

Jones was also the last name of Dustin's late grandmother, who was greatly influenced during his teenage years. 

Therefore, River was named after those two factors. 

How did his parents meet?

The parents of River first met back in 2009. The pair met through Paulina's mom. 

Her mother met Dustin and convinced him to meet his daughter. She invited him to dinner at their house. 

Paulina was not eager to meet him because she thought it was ridiculous that her mom called a stranger to their home over dinner. 

She was also compelled to meet him. When Paulina first saw Dustin, she thought he was a cute guy and endearing gentleman.

Paulina also said that she looked like a ragamuffin back in 2009 and was unsure that Dustin would like her. 

She thought that he would be rolling his eyes. However, they only had dinner that year, and Dustin remained friendly with the family.

After two years of meeting, they decided to go on their first date in 2012

Paulina added that she could not call it a date because her father also tagged during their meet. 

She also mentioned that whenever she wanted to meet Dustin, her family would come along. 

Just seven months after their dating, Dustin pooped up the question, and Paulina said yes. 

He propped her in August of 2013. After proposing to her, Dustin tweeted about the news, and fans were happy for them.

Why aren't River's parents married?

The couples are currently in their nine years of relationship. They are blessed with two children but have not married yet. 

The couple revealed that they want their wedding day to be special and want to have a huge wedding. 

They want all of their family's participation. The reason they are still unmarried after being engaged is because of their hectic and whirlwind schedule. 

The pair shared that their professional life is also equally important. 

Rumors were circulating all over social media that the couples are planning to get married this year.

Paulina shared that she sometimes feels upset when she gets lots of wedding questions. 

River's mother said she is happiest now because of her relationship with Dustin and can do anything to make her partner and children happy.
