The Rock Shows Off Other Side Of Himself The Public Isn’t Used To Seeing, One Girl Is To Blame
FaithTap Staff 6/14/2017
We all know him as The Rock and for good reason, since his 6'5" gladiator-like frame makes him a celebrity that has a towering presence even on a TV screen! With a real name that's a little less flashy however, Dwayne Johnson, has made himself a household name in Hollywood after starting his career as a successful professional wrestler. Since that time there have even been rumors about why Dwayne Johnson should run for president in 2020. The man has proven time and time again, that he is ambitious and well liked by fans all over the world.
Born in California in 1972, Dwayne was raised in New Zealand and later in Hawaii and Pennsylvania. His larger than life presence from a young age, gave him the perfect training for the wrestling and movie stardom that has followed him since.
While there is no shortage of footage and films giving us a perfect glimpse at his serious and macho side, it is the softer, tender, and real-life moments that his fans can't get enough of.
Take for instance his vacation update from this past Memorial Day which he spent with his family relaxing in Georgia. In the picture, we see a smiling Dwayne holding hands with his almost 2-year-old daughter Jasmine, in the middle of the muddy water of the Chattahoochee river.
In the post that went along with the picture, Dwayne said:
"She grabbed daddy's hand and started pulling me right down the middle of the Chattahoochee. Fearless lil' human. My heart's filled with gratitude for being able to spend this day with my family before I jump on a bird and head to Germany tonight for work."
This simple moment between father and daughter might not show off his physical prowess that he has made a career out of, but gives a peek into what he is really like when the cameras stop rolling.
Fatherhood certainly suites him very well and he looks so comfortable, relaxed, and happy, being there next to his daughter. The picture is a nice change from all the action shots we are so used to seeing on the screen!
And given the occasion, he also used the opportunity to pass on his sincere thanks to the American men and women in service:
"Boundless love and respect to the brave men and women who sacrificed it all for their country and family, so I can love and protect my own. Enjoy your Memorial Day. You guys have some fun and spread that positive energy, gratitude, and love with your family and friends today."
Many sources claim that Dwayne is very private with his personal life which he now shares with his two young daughters and domestic partner Lauren Hashian. The couple has dated for over a decade but rarely fall in the category of the showy Hollywood couples whose pictures are plastered everywhere. Needless to say, any glimpse into the family of The Rock, is something that we will take any day!
Here is The Rock again, singing "Happy Birthday" with his baby girl Jasmine!
As fans, we often get caught up in the characters portrayed by our beloved actors on the TV screen. But proving that there is a whole other side to their existence which resembles much of our own, is truly a great relatable feeling to have.
Dwayne Johnson might be a formidable figure when it comes to wrestling and acting, but seeing how fatherhood can overshadow even the biggest of those other achievements is heartwarming and inspirational! He is truly one of those celebrities that we love for his real life sensibilities, just as much as his film presence!
