Just when we thought, “The Rock” with all his on screen dare devilery and being the ideal good hero cannot win us more, he shows his softer side which is nothing short of adorable. The Rock who is father to three daughters namely Simone,Jasmine and Tiana is crushing fatherhood as we speak and the more we learn about it, the more he comes across as a Pro.
“The Rock ” who is also crushing the Hollywood Hero business, where he is the highest paid actor as we speak plays a much important role at home, being the super dad. In one of his earlier interviews he described his proudest moments as
“My proudest moment as a father would be, umm … well I have two,” the star said. “When Simone was born, I remember looking at her and saying, ‘I’m gonna take care of you for the rest of my life.’ And then when Jasmine was born, I held her and I held her on my chest and I said the exact same thing. So there’s a lot of cheese on this pizza right now in that delivery (laughs). It’s very easy, but it’s the truth”
The Rock had his first daughter, 15-year-old Simone, during his first marriage to Dany Garcia. He then welcomed his second daughter, one-year-old Jasmine, in December 2015 with his longtime partner Lauren Hashian and Tiana was born in early 2018.
One of the lesser known belief that “The Rock” practices is the skin to skin bonding, which normally is associated with mothers. A study posted by Science Direct highlights that Father-infant skin-to-skin contact had positive impacts on infants’ outcomes, including temperature and pain, bio-physiological markers, behavioral response, as well as paternal outcomes, which include parental role attainment, paternal interaction behavior, and paternal stress and anxiety.
Here is what he posted when his second daughter Jasmine was born
“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. 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. 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. *(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.
With so many influential women in his life “The Rock ” payed a handsome tribute on occasion of the International Women’s day where he quoted
“I come from a family of beautiful, strong, diverse, and intelligent women. They inspire and challenge me daily to become a better man, father, and role model. My love and respect for them is boundless.”
When he was nominated as the “Sexiest Man Alive”, he revealed the sweet lullaby he sings for his daughters and we were left wondering and asking…… he Sings too??
As his first born, Simone has grown to be a beautiful young girl, like a doting father he posts a message ons social media complimenting her and saying
“It’s the most unique, powerful, loving, irreplaceable, one-of-a-kind bond on earth. The bond between a father and his daughter,” So proud [of] you [Simone] for the young woman you’ve become and so grateful for the bond we have. I take complete credit for your wit and charm. All that brains and beauty you got go to your mama “
The more we learn about him, the more we end up loving him 🙂
