Dwayne Johnson, the Rock, is one of Hollywood’s most warm-hearted stars. Recently, the 10-time WWE champion celebrated his birthday and already has a great gift: being a father to three amazing daughters, Jasmine (5), Tiana (2), and Simone (18).
His large arms are a reminder of his big heart. He cherishes time spent with his wife and three daughters. He also loves sharing the most special moments of their lives with followers via Instagram. When it comes to his girls, he’s not a wrestler or an action hero, but a father who cares deeply about his children. Despite the fact that he just celebrated his 48th Birthday, he still takes care of himself and works out regularly at the gym. This special occasion has been captured by us as we collected his most memorable moments via social media.
