He may be known as The Rock — but Dwayne “The Dad” Johnson is even better! The Jumanji actor shared a sweet moment on Instagram with his two-year-old daughter Jasmine — and it is literally the cutest thing you will see all day.
Holding the little girl up as she plays with a cup, the former wrestler tries to negotiate with Jasmine, who wants a snack before dinner. “After a very long and fatiguing day of work, the battle of wills between me and my baby, Jasmine Lia was just the mental therapy I needed,” he captioned the sweet father-daughter moment. “When she throws the cup and pretends to be sad… she’s rewriting the psychological chess game, that I thought I mastered. Think again daddy.” Watch the video below to see Jasmine have her way!
While it is clear Jasmine has her famous daddy wrapped around her little finger, Dwayne, who is currently expecting another baby girl with longtime girlfriend Lauren Hashian and is dad to 16-year-old daughter Simone from his first marriage, has made it very clear he loves all his girls. “The crazy thing is, I was raised by women, and still to this day, I’m totally and completely, 100 percent surrounded by only women,” he told Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show. “And I love it.”
He also opened up about fatherhood on Oprah‘s Master Class — and we think he has a pretty good idea what he is talking about. “I realized being a father is the greatest job I have ever had and the greatest job I will ever have,” the 45-year-old said between tears. “I always wanted to be a great dad. I always wanted to give Simone things that I felt I never got.”
He continued, “Throughout the years, throughout the ups and downs, I’ve realized that the most important thing that I could do with my daughter is lead our life with love. Not success, not fame, not anything else but, ‘I’m always here for you. I love you.’”
