Is there anyone cooler than Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson? Yeah, probably not. The guy just sweats cool. And he's done it all. He basically started from nothing, built his way up in the wrestling world, then became a mega-successful businessman and actor. Of course, he's best known for the Fast and the Furious franchise, Moana, Ballers, The Scorpion King, and Jumanji. But he's also very well known for being a papa.
In fact, he loves to chat about his family when he's on the talk-show circuit, even though he makes sure his kids are protected from the spotlight. But this definitely doesn't stop him from causing us all to gush with joy over some of his cutest photos. This article includes some of the most absolutely swoon-worthy images The Rock has ever taken with his three girls and his current wife. The Rock was with his previous baby-mama for a while to have Simone. But ever since 2008, he's been with Lauren Hashian, with whom he had Jasmine and Tiana. The youngest two are still under the age of five, making it far easier for the hulking Rock to take particularly darling pictures with them. Without further ado, here are 20 photos of The Rock and his kids that make us swoon every time.
20 Must Be A Dad, A Mentor, A Friend, And An Easel
When you're a dad, you have to put on many hats. It's not just helping to raise children, a dad also has to be everything his kids need and sometimes that means being an inanimate object. Although some dads do their best to get out of it and The Rock definitely could. After all, he has access to all the nannies in the world. But in this wonderful photo, we can see that The Rock doesn't mind being his daughter Jasmine's easel. There doesn't seem to be much discomfort on his face. In fact, he may even enjoy being painted on. Even though he's in the middle of eating, he knows that his daughter's desires kind of outweigh his own.
19 Happy To Serve
Real men serve as much as they are served. It's always about finding a healthy and equal playing field between roles. But when their partners have just given birth, they really need to step up more than ever. Clearly, The Rock understands the importance of being a consistent and helpful partner. In this photo, The Rock is happy to feed his wife, Lauren, while she does her job of feeding their newborn daughter, Tiana. This might be a slightly staged, and very hilarious, image, but it shows a healthy balance in their relationship. Additionally, it shows how nurturing both The Rock and Lauren are to their family.
18 Four Out Of Five Skeletons
This image looks like it would be straight from Pinterest as there's nothing trendier (or cuter) than a family with matching Halloween costumes. Just look at how happy The Rock seems in this picture. His smile is of pure joy. But that's because he is with four of the five most important people of his life. As a side note, there's just no way that The Rock was able to find this costume in a store. Who would carry something in his size? He's 6'5 and 250 lbs. Who else is? It just wouldn't be economically feasible. Clearly, he made this himself. But we're glad he did because otherwise, we wouldn't have this truly wonderful picture of The Rock and his kids.
17 Going Somewhere Classy?
Celebrities like The Rock have to show up at a variety of formal functions on the regular. That means he has to put his dad shorts away and dawn his suit and tie more often than not. But that doesn't mean that he can't take some time to pose with his daughter. This was probably taken right before The Rock had to go out on the town. But his daughter, Tiana, had to get some of his attention beforehand. This image really shows us that The Rock is ultimately a family man before anything else. This is a guy who has the world at his fingertips and yet his family has his full heart.
16 "Ellen, It's A Girl!"
The Rock is definitely the type to let his fans know when something interesting or important happens in his life. Obviously, one of the most important things in The Rock's life has been the birth of his daughters. In the latter part of 2017, The Rock announced on social media that he was going to have his third child. He did this by sharing a photo of his daughter Jasmine with a sign saying that she was getting a baby sister. Soon after, The Rock went on The Ellen Degeneres Show to the image off to an even larger audience. Of course, this was something that Ellen and her studio audience really adored.
15 That Shared Smile Though
In July 2018, The Rock let his fans get a first glance at his beautiful new baby, Tiana. Alongside the social media video, The Rock said, "Me: I’m gonna just fish for compliments all day when I hold you in my arms. Baby Tiana Gia: I’m gonna look up at you with my gummy smile and just love, appreciate and marvel at all this Daddy Goodness I see. Hobbs laying on the floor in the background: Please Baby Tia stop encouraging him. It’s making me nauseated. For the record, this is the same way I speak to Kevin Hart." Clearly, The Rock was absolutely thrilled to share this special moment with his fans who he very much values.
14 Enduring The Pleasures Of Fatherhood
It can't be easy to get marker ink off of one's nails. But clearly, this is the last thing that The Rock is thinking about. It's far more important for him to make his daughter happy. And in this case, Jasmine is happiest when she can make her dad's nails a bunch of wonderful rainbow-esque colors. Oh, the joys of parenthood! But to kids, it's all about these little things. And as a dad, it's not that much work to let your kid paint nails. Clearly, The Rock didn't mind this all that much as he was quick to post it to social media for every other father and mother to see.
13 Jasmine Didn't Get The Duck-Face Memo
Perhaps there's hope for the next generation. Although Jasmine easily could have pulled the "Duck Face" as her father did, she thought it was better just to smile. Nowadays, selfies are littered with this really useless facial expression. Sure, it happens naturally on occasion, but when people purposefully do it, it's ludicrous. Clearly, young Jasmine already knows better and could probably teach her dad a thing or two. Still, this Duck Face/Blue Steel thing is probably the least important part of this image. What we should be focusing on is the fact that this father and daughter genuinely appear to be deeply enjoying one another's company. It's a beautiful thing.
12 Simone Gets The Award-Show Perks
The Rock is no stranger to giving his daughters some of the perks of his success. Although some celebrities do their best not to show their kids too much of the high-life, The Rock doesn't see a problem with it. Here we can see him with his eldest daughter, Simone, at the 2017 People's Choice Awards. This is clearly something so many young people would love to do and is probably something that Simone will treasure for the rest of her life. Not only because she got to go to a fancy award show where tons of celebrities are milling about, but also because she got to make a memory with her loving father.
11 Father And Daughter Bask In The Sunlight
Chances are this image was taken at The Rock's home in Los Angeles, although it could have easily been taken in Hawaii, a place where he spends a lot of time with his family. Regardless, this appears to be a very touching moment between The Fast and the Furious star and his daughter, Jasmine. Although the image does look a bit staged, it could have easily been an honest and authentic moment that his wife, Lauren, captured. Regardless, it's truly amazing to see such a big celebrity settle down like this instead of using his fame to his full advantage. Instead, he focuses on the little things.
10 Christmas Time Is Here
Yummy food. Gifts. Music. Christmas morning is clearly a fun place for Jasmine and Tiana Johnson. But it's equally as great for The Rock who wrote this when he posted this image to social media: "Daddy’s arms. I ain’t gonna be able to hold ‘em like this forever, so you better believe I snatch these cookies and love ‘em up every moment I can. Plus, I know there’s gonna come a day wherein daddy’s arms is the last place they want to be. Baby Tiana Gia is already there with the “help me” look on her face. Can’t guarantee I’ll love and protect all my daughters for the rest of their lives, but I can guarantee I will for the rest of mine."
9 Following In Her Father's Footsteps
In this photo, we see The Rock's eldest daughter, Simone, who was born during his first marriage. The Rock and Simone have been seen together at many events, including when Simone was Miss Golden Globes. This warm Christmas image continues to show how close they are. But Simone's relationship with her father goes beyond just enjoying his company. Simone is actually following in her father's footsteps and has been training on and off, at the Performance Center in Orlando, to become a pro wrestler. Luckily for her, she has her father's genes and her ancestry which have been linked to wrestling and bodybuilding for generations.
8 No Sleep Means Extra Cuddles
Not long ago, The Rock posted a beautiful image of him and his daughter, Jasmine, on social media. Along with the image, he wrote, "Working late and had only 3hrs sleep when this tornado busts in our bedroom jumps on me and pleads with me to get up and take her to my closet (she keeps toys in my closet) to play." The Rock went on to explain that he was really tired but explained that there would be a time where his daughter won't want to play with him so he should take advantage of this moment now. He then went on to say, "Somewhere Kevin Hart is crying and wishes he was her."
7 The Women Of Dwayne's Life
Although The Rock's social media pages mostly consist of workout content as well as images of his adventures, he does include a few touching photos of his family, especially his daughters. However, in this image, he gives a shout out to three of the four most important people in his life; his wife, Lauren, and his two youngest daughters, Tiana and Jasmine. Instead of showing off his own relationship with his girls, he puts a spotlight on Lauren for being a wonderful and caring wife. Now, this is something that all of his fans can remember; the life he has with his daughters is only possible because of the dedication of his partner.
6 Childhood With A Star
No matter how down-to-earth The Rock seems, he's still a mega-successful, talented, rich, and famous guy. This drastically changes the lifestyle of his family members, especially his daughters. Therefore, we can expect that his kids don't quite have as normal of a life as most children do. For instance, not many children get to go to a ceremony that honors their father by putting a star on the sidewalk in Hollywood. This was something that Jasmine got to experience in 2017 when his father was added to the long list of incredibly talented individuals who have been added to the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.
5 The Rock Wins A Children's Fashion Show
This is a wonderful photo of a much younger Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson with his first-born child, Simone. The image was taken back in 2006 when Simone accompanied her father to an event that he hosted, The Me and My Daddy: The Mercy Foundation Children's Fashion Show. Although this charity event was about the children, it's not hard to believe that The Rock and his daughter actually stole the show. After all, the pair did look particularly sweet and dapper. This must be one of the first major events that The Rock took Simone too, which probably makes it one of the most special.
4 The Rock Strives To Give His Children A Typical Childhood
Although this list contains many photos of The Rock with his daughters at fancy Hollywood events, it's clear by this image that he tries to give his daughters as "normal" of a life as humanly possible. This includes little moments such as playing in a pile of leaves. By the look on Jasmine's face, this pile of leaves is pure nirvana. This is something all of us can learn from. Instead of worrying and feeling overly anxious about every little (and large) thing in life we should take more time to jump in a pile of autumn leaves. That is if there's not a giant rake inside that we could have an encounter with. Always check for rakes. We're sure The Rock did before dropping his daughter in these leaves and snapping this endearing photograph.
3 Imparting The Right Wisdom and Guidance
When The Rock shares beautiful images like this one of him and his second born, Jasmine, he always includes something inspirational. In this case, he wrote, "Its Labor Day. One of my favorite holidays as we celebrate the blue-collar [U.S.] worker and their contributions to our country thru labor and sweat. In the spirit of Labor Day, I had an amazing philosophical conversation w/ my baby girl about the value of hard work and how respect is given when it's earned. I told her, 'Baby girl when you grow up, you get out there and dent the universe thru hard work and sweat. And always make sure you do it in a positive way with class, dignity, and respect.'"
2 Not Everything The Johnsons Do Is Relatable
There are tons of endearing and pretty relatable photos on this list, but this is one that's absolutely not. After all, how many one-year-olds can say that they've been on a private jet? Of course, that's a bit of a silly question seeing that most one-year-olds can't actually say anything, but you get the point. Private jets aren't in most people's futures. But when you're a massive star, like The Rock, flying this way is the most efficient. Even though it's an utterly luxurious experience, it's nice to see that The Rock is enjoying the moment with his daughter above all.
1 Jasmine's Very Special Second Birthday
This photo of Jasmine on her second birthday is one of the most joyous pictures that The Rock has ever posted to social media. Although we have all taken photos like this as children, and of our children, we can all appreciate how special this is. To a parent, like The Rock, a moment like this is one of the most special things in the world. When you look into this child's beautiful blue eyes and truly see her smile, you can almost feel the same way. If you can't quite appreciate this image on that level, think about all the amazing things that this two-year-old probably gets to do. Such as fly on private jets to the premiere of a massive action blockbuster.
