Dwayne Johnson, also known as The Rock, and girlfriend Lauren Hashian announced in September that they were going to be having a baby. Johnson and Hashian revealed on Instagram that the baby is going to be a girl.
“I was raised by and live with amazing and strong women, so the universe felt we needed one more. IT’S A BABY GIRL!! THANK YOU guys so much for the awesome support and love you’ve sent [Lauren] and myself from around the world. We’re so grateful for this blessing and thrilled to share the news with y’all.”
This will not be the first child for Dwayne. Johnson was previously married to Dany Garcia. The couple has a 14-year-old daughter, Simone. Johnson and Gacia were married for 10 years, divorcing in 2001. The couple divorced on positive terms and remain friends. An anonymous source who is close to Johnson spoke to People magazine about how Dwayne is as a father.
“He’s a great dad already, and now he’s being blessed with another child. Everyone is so excited.”
After leaving WWE, Johnson quickly climbed the Hollywood ladder to “A-list” status. Fully embracing the movie star lifestyle was likely not hard for Dwayne due to his past as one of the greatest pro wrestlers in history. As a pro wrestler, Johnson was traveling for over 300 days of the year. Now that he is one of Hollywood’s best draws, Dwayne is traveling a lot. Johnson spoke with Esquire about the difficulties of making sure he still makes time for his family.
“I always like making sure we find the balance and my home is in there and Lauren Hashian is in there and my daughter is in there. You gotta get the better half in there. With all the cool s–t and success that I’ve been lucky enough to get? That doesn’t happen unless the home life is solid.”
Johnson and Hashian met in 2006 while Johnson was filming The Game Plan. Dwayne was still married to Dany Garcia and rumors quickly began to spread that Johnson and Hashian were dating. It was also speculated that the reason for Johnson’s divorce in 2007 was due to his relationship with Hashian.
Johnson is still staying really busy in Hollywood. Currently, Johnson is doing voice work in Moana. Moana is an animated Disney production about a girl who goes on an epic voyage with Moana in order to help her family.
Dwayne will also be joining the DC movie universe. Earlier this year, an announcement was made that Johnson will be Black Adam in Shazam. The movie is slated to be released in 2019.
Besides his successful Hollywood career, Johnson also appears sporadically in the WWE as The Rock. Johnson’s performance as a pro wrestler is what helped in springboard to the top of Hollywood. It has been rumored that Dwayne will be a part of WrestleMania 32 next April in Dallas. Johnson is still a huge draw for the WWE when it is announced that he will be at a future event. Vince McMahon wants nothing more than to sell out all 80,000 seats in AT&T Stadium. In order to do that, McMahon needs to have Johnson in the show. It is speculated that Dwayne will end up in a wrestling match with one of his formal rivals, Triple H.
Will the arrival of his second daughter force Dwayne Johnson to not spend as much time making movies and performing for WWE? Do you think that Johnson will show up at WrestleMania 32? Lastly, what should Johnson and Hashian name their daughter? My vote would be for The Rock to name is daughter pebble.
