If you're struggling with an unrequited love for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, beware: you will only be more in love with him at the end of this post. It doesn't seem possible, I know, but he can actually get more charming than he already is. The man is dangerous.
The Rock recently had a second child with his partner Lauren Hashian. Their posts about the birth of Tia Gia Johnson in April were enough to make everyone's ovaries hurt. Look how cute this is, and weep:
If only there was some way to be a part of The Rock's family, but I don't think they will adopt me. I've asked several times.
Obviously, The Rock is very in love with his little family, which includes their other daughter Jasmine. Both girls have middle names honoring their great grandmothers, Lia and Giavanna.
Family, and especially the women in his life, are extremely important to Johnson's public philosophy and persona. He often posts about the women in his life who have influenced him, like his grandmother.
In the caption to this #tbt he posted of dancing for his grandmother in 2015, The Rock wrote:
In Samoan culture there's a very special dance called the "Taualuga" where we, as men honor the women by dancing around them out of love and great respect. On my grandmother's 80th birthday she danced her Taualuga while I proudly danced around her while she laughed and beamed with pride.
She had the greatest birthday and her smile was from ear to ear. My grandmother, Lia Maivia was a strong willed, highly respected and tough pioneer in the world of pro wrestling, becoming wrestling's first successful female promoter. But when we hit hard times and my family was evicted, shortly after that my grandmother became homeless.
When I finally could afford it I bought her a place of her very own that she LOVED! I always asked after that, "Grandma are you happy?" To which she'd call me by my Samoan name and say, "Tuifeai I'm so happy.. thank you.. oh and can you please sing that song I like.."
Ha! I'd start singin' away (off key of course) and she'd laugh and smile from ear to ear. A few months after this picture was taken my grandma passed away peacefully in her sleep. I know we all experience loss and it's so tough to deal with... but I'm forever grateful for the one of kind life lessons only grandma's can teach us. Miss you grandma and I hope you hear me cause I'm still quietly singin' away to you.. Misiga tele 'oe Grandma, alofa tele atu mo 'oe.
It seems like he is continuing with the tradition of celebrating and supporting the women in his life. In a post on Monday, The Rock shared an image of himself helping Hashian eat as she breastfed the new baby:
He captioned it:
I’ll handle this business 😉💪🏾
Mama @laurenhashianofficial has her hands full nursing/feeding Baby Tia, so I’m feedin’ mama her dinner.
So much respect to her and all mamas out there holding it down and running things.
Just landed and good to get all my girl’s settled in.
Now, I gotta go satisfy my own appetite.. Iron Paradise, here I come.
And people are absolutely loving it:
It's actually a really nice way to help out, according to actual professionals!
Though no one can be The Rock, some husbands are trying.
Trying, they're trying.
