Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Shares First Photo of Newborn Daughter


Christmas came early for Dwayne Johnson and his girlfriend, Lauren Hashian.

The couple welcomed their first child together, a baby girl, on Dec. 16, and on Sunday, the 43-year-old actor took to Instagram to share the first photo of their newborn and reveal her first name: Jasmine!

In the precious photo, The Rock's bundle of joy can be seen snuggled up on her dad's chest just minutes after birth.

Johnson also showed off his softer side in the post, penning a very sweet and emotional message.

"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," he wrote. "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," he continued. "Trust me."

He then began to gush over his "fearless" girlfriend and what it was like to witness the true "beauty of a woman."

"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," he explained. "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..πŸ˜‚ 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)."

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..πŸ˜‚ 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. #ChristmasCameEarlyToSayHello #WhileSleepOfficiallySaysGoodbye #2xProudPapaSilverback #SheCanDateWhenShes40 πŸ’ͺπŸΎπŸ‘ŠπŸΎπŸ’―
