Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson was taken by surprise when his daughter arrived three weeks early, complicating his work schedule.
The actor reportedly shut down the set of his TV show Ballers so he could be at the birth of his daughter.
The action star has been dating Lauren Hashian since 2007 and in December 2015 they welcomed little Jasmine. It was earlier than expected and took the actor, who was working on TV sports drama Ballers at the time, by surprise.
“That was a great conversation… 3 o’clock in the afternoon, I’m on the set of Ballers, I get a text from my girlfriend saying: ‘We’re inducing at 6, baby comes tonight’,” Dwayne recalled in an interview with Extra.
“Three weeks early! I pull my director aside and say: ‘Buddy, we’re shutting it all down’. So for two weeks we shut Ballers down. But it’s great, we’re back to shooting now.”
The doting dad would clearly do anything for his daughter and also revealed he’s been getting hands-on for fatherhood. No task is too big for the 43-year-old muscle man.
“I do everything!” he laughed. “I change diapers, I do it all, because I’m a man and a half and I do everything.”
Dwayne should be used to the process by now, as he also has daughter Simone, 14, with his ex-wife Dany Garcia. His eldest even got a taste of her father’s glitzy lifestyle recently as he took her along as his date to the Golden Globes.
Dressed in a lacy black dress, the dark-haired beauty looked stunning next to her dapper father in a red velvet jacket and smart trousers.
On the night Dwayne helped present the Best Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture for TV prize alongside Jennifer Lopez.
The star clearly had a great time, but now it’s business as usual as he returns to shooting Ballers.
“We owned the night! THANK YOU #GoldenGlobes for a spectacular evening. Wheels up and Miami bound. #BALLERS set here I come. Let’s shoot. Ball so hard.. #VelvetBlaze (sic),” he wrote on Instagram.
