Over 140 million people follow The Rock, AKA Dwayne Johnson, 46, the gargantuan actor, producer, and semi-retired professional wrestler. He is larger than life, but what fans probably like most is that he remains so down to earth and funny. You never know what you may find on his page, from scenes showing off his superhero muscles to posing with a beluga whale.
But the pictures that seem to be most popular of all are not focused on The Rock so much as his his daughter Tiana Gia Johnson, born April 17, 2018, his daughter Jasmine “Jazzy” Lia Johnson, born in 2015, and Simone Alexandra born 2001.
Appearing on the Ellen Show with Jumanji co-star Kevin Hart, he announced his youngest daughter’s birth, Jonson joked:
“The crazy thing is I was raised by women and I am still to this day totally and completely 100% surrounded by only women,” he joked. “And I love it,” he added.
Kevin Hart, also a new father, joked, “Another girl. He can’t make boys!
Ever since, Johnson has included hilarious photoshops of Hart superimposed as his infant with equally funny captions. It all started when The Rock shared his first picture of Tiana Gia as he held her for the first time in the hospital, her tiny body nestled on his tattoed chest. Johnson shared a warm message of appreciation for his wife, Lauren Hashian.
“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 [Lauren Hashian] and all mamas and women out there,” he wrote.
Soon after, he shared a hilarious photo with Kevin Hart in Tia Gia’s place. Since then it has become a bit of an off-the-wall tradition on his page. Fans of The Rock love it all.

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
When Tiana Gia turned one year old, he shared another shot, and her loving protector surrounding her.
“Happy 1st Birthday to our strong lil’ beauty, Tiana Gia. Get used to daddy’s hands, kid ~ they’ll always have your back.”
Then we get a video of Tiana Gia that captures her funny responses to her dad as he strokes his own ego, fishing for compliments.
“You have the sexiest Daddy in the world,” he says. “And the coolest Daddy in the world.” Tiana coos and seems to scoff at him as she covers her mouth with her arm, seemingly in protest.
In another post, Johnson shares a moment with his “lil’ tornado” Jazzy as he teaches her how to swim. He shared the funny comment she made, which he had to clarify.
“Took my shirt off and she said, Daddy I like it your brown boobies.. 😂🤔 Thank you baby, but daddy has pecs, not boobies.”
In another shot, Johnson shares the funny moment that Jazzy bursts into his bedroom as an excuse to get some attention from her sleep-deprived dad. Although tired, Johnson appreciated the moment.
“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. We get there and then – surprise – she refuses to play and just wants me to hold her while she makes fart noises 💨🤦🏾♂️”
“Tired as all hell, but thought ehh there’s gonna come a time, years from now when jumping in my arms is the last thing she wants to do and ain’t gonna be cool anymore — so I’ll always take these moments while I can.”
Oh yes, there is a version with Kevin Hart, but we won’t subject you to that one. 🤣
In a more recent post, Johnson is back fishing for compliments from Jazzy, who shares a big smile for her famous dad. Clearly, time with his kids keeps The Rock grounded as he enjoys life as a superstar celebrity dad.
“When this lil’ estrogenic mini-me waits for me at the door and says “Daddy, have a great work today”.. I scoop her up and start to 🎣 for 🖤😂 Truth is, she’s exactly what I needed to see before hoppin’ in my pick up to go and shoot the biggest and most meaningful magazine cover of my career. ”
“I’m 97% sure I bribed Jazzy with broccoli to say nice things about me when the camera is rolling. Don’t judge. It’s how I roll.”
