Dwayne Johnson Discusses Witnessing All Three Of His Children's Births — 'I'm That Dad'
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson might be a chiseled actor and former professional wrestler with a penchant for tough action movies and a look that says "Don't mess with me," but he's actually an adorable doting dad at heart!
In a new interview with Access about the second season of his show The Titan Games, Johnson discussed how strong women were and his love for his family, among other things.
Speaking with Access about his new show, the topic switched to the power that women have and Dwayne didn't hold back. He stated: "There's this unique estrogenic reserve that only women have when they dig deep through this pain, and it is incredible to see. And it reminds me, 'Oh, of course, this is why women have babies and men don't!'"
It's always nice when men acknowledge the pain that women have to go through and strength that we possess in order to bring new life into the world, but to hear it from former professional wrestler The Rock, who knows his fair share about physical pain? We'll take it!
Proud Father of Three Girls
On the topic of childbirth, Dwayne admits to being present for the birth of all three of his daughters. He said in the same interview: "I was right there—I'm that dad. My wife's head is up there, and I'm right here [like], 'Let me see the baby.'"
His daughters include 18-year-old Simone Alexandra, four-year-old Jasmine Lia, and two-year-old Tiana Gia. He is married to Lauren Hashian, who is the mother of his two youngest girls.
Moments of Bonding
Ever the proud dad, it's no surprise that Dwayne posted to Instagram when both of his younger daughters were born. In the post announcing Jasmine's birth he shared a photo of her as a tiny baby laying on his chest, with a heartfelt caption accompanying the image. In it he wrote: "Within minutes of being born, she was laying on daddy's chest."
Unsurprisingly then, when Tiana Gia was born, he posted a similar picture of his new daughter laying on her father's chest and captioned the post in a similarly loving way. He wrote: "Blessed and proud to bring another strong girl into this world."
Johnson's Daughter Joins WWE
Just last month Johnson was doting on his eldest daughter Simone Alexandra, who at 18 has become the youngest signee in the history of WWE. Following in her father's professional wrestling footsteps, Dwayne is clearly proud, discussing the news with Jimmy Fallon on a recent appearance on The Tonight Show show. He said: "It blows my mind. First of all, what an honor that my daughter wants to follow in my footsteps, but more importantly...she actually wants to create and blaze her own path."
He explained how hard she's worked to get where she is, stating in the same interview: "She's 18 now, at 16 she was working her ass off quietly under the radar, in the ring getting thrown around, you know all the bumps and bruises that go with pro wrestling. And she hung in there, and I'm very proud of her."
