You have probably seen the photo doing the rounds on social media that made you tear up a bit, the one of Dwayne'The Rock' Johnson holding his tiny new-born daughter, the third Rockette.
Dwayne Johnson took to Instagram on Monday to show off his chest full of tattoos and his new baby girl in a hospital skin-to-skin contact bonding moment. He posted on Instagram saying: “Blessed and proud to bring another strong girl into this world. Tiana Gia Johnson came into this world like a force of nature and Mama @laurenhashianofficial laboured and delivered like a true rockstar.”
This is his second daughter he has fathered with Hashian with the first being the adorable two-year-old Jasmine who recently had to be rushed to the emergency room as explained previously. He also has a 16-year-old daughter named Simone with his ex-wife, Danny Garcia.
His Instagram post continues to explain: "I was raised and surrounded by strong, loving women all my life, but after participating in baby Tia’s delivery, it’s hard to express the new level of love, respect and admiration I have for @laurenhashianofficial and all mamas and women out there.”
He went on to offer other men and fathers advice saying: “Word to the wise gentlemen, it’s critical to be by your lady’s head when she’s delivering, being as supportive as you can … holding hands, holding legs, whatever you can do,” he continued. “But, if you really want to understand the single most powerful and primal moment life will ever offer – watch your child being born. It's a life changer and the respect and admiration you have for a woman will forever be boundless.”
He announced that Hashian was expecting in December and later posted a photo of Jasmine holding a sign saying: "Its a girl! Can’t wait to be a big sister! And finally be the boss!”. The only post that topped this adorable announcement was his recent post, cradling his new-born.
“I can’t make boys – not that I want to. Girl power,” he joked on The Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier this year, explaining that Jasmine “was happy” about getting a baby sister, but the tide had shifted recently. “Out of the blue, about a week and a half ago, we were eating breakfast … and I mean, out of the blue, we have her cartoons on, she’s eating, she looks up and she goes, ‘I don’t want a baby sister.’ Firm, direct eye contact and that was it,” he explained.
But he is still up for the challenge of raising and being surrounded by girls and felt nothing but love when he laid eyes on his baby girl. He finished his Instagram posting with: “And to my third and youngest daughter, Tiana Gia – like I did when your two older sisters Simone Alexandra and Jasmine Lia were born, you have my word, I’ll love, protect, guide and make ya laugh for the rest of my life,” Johnson addressed his newborn. “Your crazy dad has many responsibilities and wears many hats in this big ol’ world, but being your dad will always be the one I’m most proud to wear. Oh and one more thing. you’re gonna love rollin’ in daddy’s pick up truck,” he joked.
