Besides jumping over buildings and punching the bad guys in the blockbuster movies, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is known to be a real family man.
The actor, known for his performance in “Fast and Furious” shared a photo of him and his daughters, Tia and Jasmine, on his Instagram account. The photo was captured on his 47th birthday, and he is holding both of his daughters in his arms. He emphasized that they remind him of the true values in life and that they are a motivation for him to work hard.
He is also a father of a 17-year-old girl, whose name is Simone. Due to the fact that she is his eldest daughter, Johnson surely devotes his time to her as well. Last month he shared how proud he was of Simone on social media. In other words, he stated that Simone has graduated from high school and she was excited about going to college at New York University. The post was found to be hilarious by his followers since it included a photo of Simone dodging a kiss from Johnson. Together with the picture the actor wrote: “I love you and one day you’ll stop pulling away from my beastly arms & kisses.”
Another proof for the statement that Dwayne Johnson is a family man certainly lays in the way he treats Lauren Hashian, his longtime partner. In a long message for the Mother’s Day, he called her the anchor of their family. He then wrote: “If you got a good mom then you have real shot at life to become a good human being. As a father and man, I find the greatest peace and gratitude in knowing our baby girls here, Jazzy & Tia have this incredible woman’s, motherly love.”
Before becoming an actor, he was a very successful wrestler. However, his career turned in a different direction, and now he has an upcoming movie called “Hobbs and Shaw” whose premiere is expected in August. Not only has the role of a loving dad in his movies proven to suit him perfectly, but he also seems to be the perfect dad off-screen.
Thanks to posts on his social media, his fans get the insight into his parenting life, which quite often turns into situations filled with humor. For instance, the story on his social media in November was about the situation when Dwayne was preparing to leave his home in Florida and go to work. However, he was suddenly stopped by Jasmine, his daughter, who is three years old. She would not let her dad leave without painting something on his face. Johnson captured this funny situation, joking with her that she should paint something which suits his complexion.
Another example of the special bond between Johnson and Jasmine was the situation from last week when she needed help in constructing the Barbie dollhouse. What happened is that he was preparing for his workout, and didn’t want to skip his morning routine. However, his daughter got involved in his plans and asked him to help her with building the dollhouse instead. On that occasion, the actor said: “Of course I can sweetheart – daddy can do anything, but let’s get mommy because she’s awesome at this and wanted to personally put it together for you.”
Many of Johnson’s Instagram followers found this situation hilarious, whereas others didn’t like it, commenting that he didn’t want to help his daughter.
Besides his jokes with his children, Johnson tries to teach them very important life lessons. For example, in 2016, his then one-year-old daughter Jasmine had, as he called it, “amazing philosophical conversation” on Labor Day. Apparently, they talked about respect and hard work. He further stated: “I told her, ‘Baby girl when you grow up, you get out there and dent the universe thru hard work and sweat. And always make sure you do it in a positive way with class, dignity, and respect.'” He then joked about his daughter’s response: “She responded by poo’ing on me at this moment as she plays her favorite game, ‘Drum time on daddy’s big head.’ It was a good talk.”
