It’s official: Spring has sprung! The cold snow has melted (hopefully in your neck of the woods, too!), the flowers are beginning to bloom, kids are counting the days until summer vacation starts, and plenty of itty-bitty babies are entering the world.
Just this past week, we gave you insider deets on Prince William and Duchess Kate’s newest prince, as well as John Stamos’ late-in-life baby boy, Billy. Yep, it sure had been an active week on the baby front, but it got even more active when Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s newest daughter came into the world on April 23rd.
As you can see by the picture at the top of this post, the adorable baby girl, Tiana Gia Johnson, looks positively tiny in the arms of her hulking daddy. But, brawn and muscles aside, anyone who knows anything about Johnson is well aware that the real-life Hercules is as sweet as you can get.
Don’t believe us? Just check out what he penned for his newest daughter’s birth announcement:
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 @laurenhashianofficialand 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. It’s 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.
Yep, it literally doesn’t get any sweeter than that, folks. We don’t know if the iconic action star was secretly hoping for a boy this time around, but we think his tenderness is best-suited for little girls. Also, it’s gotta be really wonderful for his wife, Lauren Hashian, to get such a heartfelt shout-out after what sounded like a difficult birth. Now, that’s a husband who has his priorities straight!
As the actor mentioned in his post, Tiana Gia wasn’t just born into a family with two wonderful parents, she also has two wonderful sisters.
The eldest, Simone Alexandra Johnson has a face that you might recognize– she served as the very first Golden Globes Ambassador at the 2018 Golden Globes.
You might not recognize his youngest daughter, Jasmine Lia, because she’s just a wee toddler, but we have a feeling she’ll continue in her family’s famous footsteps, too!
Congratulations to the Johnson family! Tiana Gia is one lucky girl!
We’d love to hear your thoughts on this beautiful celebrity baby. Are you a fan of The Rock? If so, what’s your favorite movie of his? Did you welcome a new baby into your family this spring?
