Dwayne Johnson’s daughters are ‘the great equalizers’ in his life

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has never held back from expressing his love for his daughters online. He shares Tiana, 2, and Jasmine (aka Jazzy), 5, with wife Lauren Hashian, and he is also dad to 19-year-old Simone with ex-wife Dany Garcia.

In a cute picture posted on Facebook, the “Hobbs & Shaw” actor can be seen walking hand-in-hand with Tiana.

“Every man wants a son, but every man needs a daughter,” Johnson wrote in the caption. “All my girls have become the great equalizers in my life — I’m surrounded by estrogen and wouldn’t have it any other way… and man I hope she never gets tired of holding these big ol’ dinosaur hands, though I suspect one day she will.”

Johnson added the hashtag #pomaikai, which means “blessed” or “lucky” in Hawaiian.

Johnson previously joked that he’s unable to “make” boys. In December 2017, ahead of his Tiana’s arrival, he told Jimmy Kimmel on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” about how excited he was to raise a third daughter.

“I’ve got strong swimmers, Jimmy,” he said. “I feel good. I was raised by women all my life, basically. And this is my third daughter. [I’m] surrounded by the estrogen. Bring on the estrogen!”

Around the same time, Johnson took to Instagram to share that the family was expecting a baby girl.

“And once again, big daddy is completely surrounded by beautiful estrogen and loving, powerful female mana,” he wrote in the caption. “All girls. One dude. And a boy dog. I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Johnson often shares glimpses of his life as a parent on social media. Last year, a video of him singing a bedtime song to Tiana got a lot of love. Actually, it was more of a bedtime rap. Rather than your typical lullaby, this daddy-daughter duo’s choice was “You’re Welcome” from the Disney movie “Moana,” in which Johnson voices the Polynesian demigod Maui.

The adorable video was posted to Facebook in April 2020.


“And for the 1,927th time I will sing ‘You’re Welcome’ to baby Tia as part of our nightly daddy/daughter negation [sic] to go to bed!” Johnson wrote in the caption. “But truth is, spending all this time at home with my ladies has been a real silver lining blessing in this craziness we’re all experiencing. And for the record, she still has no idea that her daddy is actually, ‘Maui’ from Moana.”
