A newborn baby and a shirtless Dwayne Johnson—what more could you want?
We were quick to double-tap Dwayne Johnson’s latest uber-touching Instagram pic.
Johnson and his girlfriend, Lauren Hashian, welcomed baby girl Jasmine into the world last week, and yesterday, The Rock gave us our first look at their bundle of joy.
“Christmas came early!” he wrote. “Within minutes of being, born she was laying on Daddy’s chest. And being a grateful man takes on a whole new meaning.”
Johnson, who also has a teenage daughter, prayed for the strength to be a good father and encouraged other dads to embrace the miracle of birth in the delivery room.
“I was right there during labor, helping [Lauren] breathe, every highly intense contraction, every second of pain, right there watching the actual birth, cutting the cord and wiping the tears,” he wrote. “(Now don’t get me wrong boys, it wasn’t like I was at the end to the table, squatting like a catcher waiting for the fastball to come down the pike. But as men, it’s a miracle we should witness because it’ll give you a whole new respect for the strength and beauty of women.)”
Take as long as you need to bask in the cuteness of this picture (and we won’t tell if you want to make this your new iPhone background).
