Fans have noticed some major similarities between Paulina Gretzky’s risque celebration photo and one posted previously by Kylie Jenner.

Gretzky sparked a social media frenzy recently when she posted a photo on Instagram of herself wearing nothing except a sun hat.

The fiancee of Masters champion Dustin Johnson is currently celebrating his victory in the Caribbean, and certainly appears to be living her best life.

Gretzky stunned her nearly one million Instagram followers with the risque snap, especially considering it came after a year in which the WAG had scaled back her social media activity.

But fans have since noticed that Gretzky’s photo appears to be a nod to one posted by Jenner.

The ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ star posted a very similar photo on a trip earlier this year to promote her new skin care range.

Both women are sitting cross-legged with one arm across their torsos and a big hat covering their faces.

American golfer Johnson has celebrated his $2.9m triumph by flying Gretzky and a number of their family and friends to the Caribbean island of St Barthelemy.

Johnson and Gretzky were joined by his brother and caddie Austin and his wife Samantha; Gretzky’s best friend Kim Melnichenko and her partner Matt Forss; as well as friends Emily Birdsall, her partner Sam, and former caddie Miguel Rivera.

Gretzky also went viral during the final round of Johnson’s victory at the Masters with a fashion statement that many thought was a huge flex.

With her man in sight of winning the green jacket, Gretzky could be seen walking around Augusta National wearing a green jacket of her own.

After his victory Johnson posted a photo of him and Gretzky kissing on the 18th green, writing: “Dreams do come true … we did it @paulinagretzky.”

Gretzky also shared the photo, writing: “Honey, I‘m forever and always your biggest fan. So proud of you @dustinjohnson.”

The daughter of Canadian ice hockey legend Wayne Gretzky, Paulina rushed onto the 18th green to celebrate with Johnson after he clinched the victory, planting a big kiss on her man.

“She’s a huge part of me, our family and my success,” Johnson said of his fiancee in September.

“She’s home with the kids, and has been great with that, and just has been a huge supporter for me, with everything I need to do.

“She understands everything it takes to get to where you want to be and the sacrifices you have to make.

“Having her dad as the greatest hockey player, she understands. You couldn’t ask for a better partner.”

Former golfer and Instagram sensation Paige Spiranac also spilled the beans on a private moment between Johnson and Gretzky after the win.

“They live such a different life and he won the Masters and they were having a conversation with each other like I would have with someone at a grocery store,” Spiranac said on Monday.

“They were so casual about it like, ‘I’ll call you, we’ll figure this out’.

“You just won the Masters! They’re so fascinating to me as a family that I love when he wins because I get to see her again.”
