Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is showing off an early (and adorable!) Christmas present – his newborn daughter!
Four days after welcoming a baby girl with longtime love Lauren Hashian, the "Ballers" star officially introduced the little one on Instagram with a touching picture and note.
"Kinda crazy but in this cool and powerful skin to skin bonding moment with my newborn baby Jasmine, I had just one wish I asked the universe," Dwayne wrote on Sunday, captioning a sepia-toned shot of himself cuddling his bundle of joy. "Give me the strength to be a better man today than I was yesterday."
The 43-year-old former WWE icon included a lengthy and emotional message with the sweet photo, thanking fans for their well wishes and offering some advice for "the young men out there who will be fathers one day."
Describing the importance of "walking thru the fire" with Lauren and being present throughout her labor, Dwayne said the birthing process was a "miracle" that all men "should witness because it'll give you a whole new respect for the strength and beauty of a woman."
Baby Jasmine is Dwayne and Lauren's first child together. The actor shares 14-year-old daughter Simone with his ex-wife Dany Garcia.
"Being a grateful man takes on a whole new meaning," he added of the new addition to his and Lauren's family.
