Dwayne Johnson has welcomed his third daughter — and he’s right back in newborn mode.
The actor better known as “the Rock” announced the arrival of his second child with Lauren Hashian by sharing a photo of dad and baby sweetly cuddling skin to skin. The hulking star is seen peacefully holding little Tiana Gia Johnson to his tattooed torso as he sits in his wife’s hospital bed.
The “blessed and grateful” dad — who also has 2-year-old Jasmine with Hashian and 16-year-old Simone Alexandra Johnson from his marriage to Dany Garcia — marveled over bringing another “strong girl into this world.” The actor, 45, said Tiana “came into this world like a force of nature,” and called his future wife Hashian a rock star.
Johnson, who had fears he might miss the birth because of the promotion of Rampage, also shared that he was hands-on in the delivery room — and encouraged other dads to do the same. “It’s critical to be … as supportive as you can,” he wrote in the tearjerking post, “holding hands, holding legs, whatever you can do.” He described watching his child being born as “the single most powerful and primal moment life will ever offer.”

The megastar, who just days ago brightened the day of a high school student who wanted him to be her prom date, ended with some sweet words to his bundle of joy. “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. 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.” He also promised she’d enjoy cruising around with dad in his pickup truck — ’cause that’s how he rolls.
Big truck, big muscles, big heart.
