The Rock achieves peak rad dad status after his latest Instagram post

The Rock and Lauren Hashian

Actor and WWE wrestler Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnston became a dad again recently, and has just proven he’s achieved expert level in the baby daddy stakes.

A snack from a snack

The Rock shared a photo of himself, down on one knee and feeding his hungry partner Lauren Hashian, while Lauren in turn breastfeeds their newborn baby girl.

“I’ll handle this business. Mama has her hands full nursing/feeding Baby Tia, so I’m feedin’ mama her dinner. My pleasure,” The Rock posted.

“So much respect to her and all mamas out there holding it down and running things. Just landed and good to get all my girls settled in. Now, I gotta go satisfy my own appetite.”

Good work, Dwayne! While some might think this is virtue signalling, we’re all for an overt display of taking care of business – and looking after the mum of new bubs in delicious and kind ways. We’re happy to see much, much more of this – regardless of the motivation!

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

“Another strong girl”

Baby Tiana was born on April 17, with The Rock noting he was proud of his strong daughter – and his brilliant partner who pushed a whole human out of her body.

“Blessed and proud to bring another strong girl into this world,” he posted on Instagram, beside a photo of his newborn daughter. “Tiana Gia Johnson came into this world like a force of nature and Mama labored and delivered like a true rockstar … 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.”

Naw. We have to say we love The Rock. He talks the talk and seems to walk the walk, too! More of this from busy dads, please!

Happy Mother’s Day to my main squeeze @laurenhashianofficial, holding my little main squeeze, Jasmine Lia, who’s holding my tiniest main squeeze, Tiana Gia – both our daughter’s middle names are in honor of their great grandmothers, Lia and Giavanna. I’m in constant respect and grateful awe of all the things this incredible mama accomplishes on a daily basis. Here’s a fun small recap: Having a two and half year old and a newborn attached and clinging to her 24/7. Managing the wonderfully fun, Terrible 2’s with Jazzy. The “Hi, I need to eat every 3hrs and preferably from your boob” (just like daddy;) with Baby Tia. Managing multiple family properties. Managing an ever growing staff of family employees across the country. Picking up the ENTIRE FAMILY, STAFF AND DOG and moving to multiple locations AROUND THE WORLD, throughout the year because of my filming and production schedule. All while continuing to build an amazing career as a music and song writer/producer. As an artist and businessman myself, I recognize how incredibly hard this part is of her job is. She’s a brilliant visionary storyteller and lyrically gifted – all qualities that are hard to tap into when you’re managing this nonstop life of ours. But she does it like a brilliant bad ass. And here’s the best part and the thing I’m most proud of… Lauren does it all with a big genuine smile and is truly, the kindest and sweetest soul you’ll ever meet. People tell me all time after they spend time with her, “Lauren’s the nicest person I have ever met”. I always say, “Yes she is and being nice runs in our family… and so does kicking ass, so don’t ever get on her bad side” Lol. And finally – of all the human beings on this earth she could have as her partner – she chose me. One big, brown, bald, tattooed, very lucky SOB. Happy Mama’s Day Lauren. Take a bow and Queen it up – you’re an amazing mama and amazing mama’s make this world go around. #yvpagm x
