The Rock becomes a dad again!
The Rock becomes a dad again!

What's the story?

Dwayne Johnson, better known to the WWE Universe as The Rock, has two daughters, Simone Alexandria and Jasmine Lia and he has just welcomed another into the world. Johnson and his partner Lauren Hashian celebrate the birth of their baby daughter, Tiana Gia Johnson. 'The Great One' then took to Instagram to bare all about this amazing occasion.

In case you didn't know...

The Rock is a busy man, he's just finished a huge round of press appearances for Rampage, having just finished a huge round of press appearances for Jumanji and now he's off to film Jungle Cruise.

That didn't stop him from taking time out from his day to surprise a teenage fan recently who had asked him to the prom. Sadly he couldn't make it to the prom itself, but arranged for her and her friends to watch Rampage, and left her a video and a message on her school's intercom system.

All this on top of becoming a dad for the third time!

The heart of the matter

Naturally, the birth of a child is an incredible thing and The People's Champion took to Instagram to post a lengthy and emotional message to his followers, in which he is full of praise for his partner Lauren Hashian.

Johnson accompanied the statement with an adorable photo, showing him cradling his new daughter Tiana Gia Johnson. It's all a bit too adorable.

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. #TianaGiaJohnson🌺 #3rdDaughter #BlessesAndGratefulMan #ImInTROUBLE

It really is quite something to see someone as high profile as The Rock write something this openly and emotionally on social media. It's also quite refreshing to see how this huge film star and professional wrestler sees becoming a dad as being the most important thing.

What's next?

Unfortunately for fans of The Rock inside a wrestling ring, it doesn't seem like there's anything lined up for him in WWE. However, fans can catch him in his latest movie Skyscraper, which is due out fairly soon and Fighting with my Family, which is the Paige biopic.

Author's take

We here at Sportskeeda would like to congratulate The Rock on the birth of his third daughter and wish him, his partner and his two daughters all the best as they get to know the new addition to their family.
