Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson recently welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world and his co-star Antoine Harris has no doubt that the actor is going to be an “amazing dad.”
“He is a good dude. He is humble, he is genuine, he’s focused, he’s there, he is ineffective, he’s present,” Harris told HipHollywood exclusively of the father of two. “If you can put those same qualities into your career you can damn sure put those qualities into your daughter.”
He added, “His other daughter loves him so much. You can tell he knows what he’s doing.”
Johnson revealed the first photo of he and girlfriend, Lauren Hashian’s, first child together on Instagram earlier this week with a lengthy, heartfelt message.
“Christmas came early! Within minutes of being born she was laying on daddy’s chest. And being a grateful man takes on a whole new meaning… Thank you guys so much for the awesome congratulatory wishes and love you’ve been sending @laurenhashianofficial and myself. We’re extremely grateful.”
He continued, “Kinda crazy but in this cool and powerful skin to skin bonding moment with my newborn baby Jasmine, I had just one wish I asked the universe… Give me the strength to be a better man today than I was yesterday. If I can accomplish that, then I’d have a good shot at being a great father.”
The Rock wrote, “To all you young men out there who will be fathers one day, the goal of ‘being better’ will never steer you wrong. Trust me I’ve been down this road. Something else that’ll never steer you wrong is ‘walking thru the fire’ with your baby’s mama. I was right there during labor, helping her breathe, every highly intense contraction, every second of pain, right there watching the actual birth, cutting the cord and wiping the tears. Incredible.”
He concluded, “(Now don’t get me wrong boys, it wasn’t like I was at the end of the table, squatting like a catcher waiting for the fastball to come down the pike.. but as men, it’s a miracle we should witness because it’ll give you a whole new respect for the strength and beauty of a woman). Again, THANK YOU guys so much for all the love during this blessed time. I always say I’m a lucky dude because I’ve got the greatest fans in the world – and it’s true. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your families from ours.”
This is the first child for Hashian and second for Dwayne, who has a 14-year-old daughter named Simone with ex-wife, Dany Garcia.
