Yes, the birth of the third royal baby captivated the world. But Prince William and new mama (for the third time) Kate aren’t the only couple who recently became parents. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and girlfriend Lauren Hashian also became parents again! The proud parents already have a toddler, 2-year-old Jasmine Lia, together. Johnson has a 16-year-old daughter, Simone Alexandra, from a previous relationship.

Johnson may seem like just another muscly macho action star, but he’s so much more. The new daddy posted a sweet birth announcement pic on Instagram, adding the caption, “Skin to skin. Our mana. Blessed and proud to bring another strong girl into this world.” Aww.

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 @laurenhashianofficial and 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. Its 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. #TianaGiaJohnson🌺 #3rdDaughter #BlessesAndGratefulMan #ImInTROUBLE

The actor went on to write, “Tiana Gia Johnson came into this world like a force of nature and Mama @laurenhashianofficial labored and delivered like a true rockstar.”

Oh, and he didn’t stop there. The kind of surprisingly sensitive star also IG’d, “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 @laurenhashianofficial and all mamas and women out there.”

Whoa! Johnson didn’t just give major props to his baby mama, but he also gave just about every other mother out there a big shout out, too.
