The Rock Welcomes His Third Daughter Into The World With An Empowering Message

"Blessed and proud the bring another strong girl into this world."

Congratulations are in order for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and his girlfriend Lauren Hashian, who just welcomed their second daughter together. Johnson shared the happy news on Instagram Monday, posting a photo of himself with baby Tiana Gia, along with a heartwarming message about being a father to his girls.

Johnson already has a 2-year-old daughter named Jasmine Lia with Hashian, as well as a 16-year-old daughter named Simone Alexandra with his ex-wife Dany Garcia. "Blessed and proud to bring another strong girl into this world," the star wrote on Instagram, adding that Tiana "came into this world like a force of nature," while Hashian "labored and delivered like a true rockstar."

"I was raised and surrounded by strong, loving women all my life," Johnson went on to write, "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."

Johnson sent a similarly empowering message last month on International Women's Day, posting a video of himself teaching daughter Jasmine to say "girl power." Before that, he led a group of girls in a powerful haka — a traditionally male Māori war dance — on the set of Fate of the Furious

Johnson also shared his wisdom for new fathers, encouraging them to be "supportive" of their partners during labor, and to watch their baby being born. "[It's] a life changer and the respect and admiration you have for a woman, will forever be boundless," he wrote.

As for baby Tiana, the proud dad promised to "love, protect, guide and make ya laugh for the rest of my life," adding, "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."
