Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson welcomed a baby girl, his third daughter, on Monday. She is his second daughter with partner Lauren Hashian. He made the announcement through an Instagram post – a picture of him holding his bundle of joy on his chest – and a long and extremely heartfelt tribute to his family (rather, all families, as he spoke about the magical bond that exists between fathers and daughters).
The post read as follows:
Skin to skin. Our mana.
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 labored and delivered like a true rockstar.
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.
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. But, if you really want to understand the single most powerful and primal moment life will ever offer – watch your child being born. Its a life changer and the respect and admiration you have for a woman, will forever be boundless.
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.
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.

With his tattoos and his strong yet tender embrace, The Rock is totally giving us ‘Moana’ flashbacks. He even chose a name that rhymes with Moana – ‘Tiana’. Coincidence? Probably not.

He had made the announcement on December 12th with a heartwarming Instagram post that read the following:
Our Jasmine Lia would like to make a big announcement – IT’S A GIRL! ðŸŒº
@laurenhashianofficial and I are boundlessly grateful for this blessing as this spring we’ll welcome our second baby.
Plus, Jazzy is excited to boss around and protect her lil’ sis.
And once again, big daddy is completely surrounded by beautiful estrogen and loving, powerful female mana.
All girls. One dude. And a boy dog.
I wouldn’t have it any other way.

All we can say is ‘Congratulations!’ to the doting dad, and wish the little angel all the happiness in the world.
