Former wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson definitely has hard body, but that doesn’t mean he lacks a soft spot. When it comes to his children, he is all heart, and in a recent Instagram post, Johnson revealed he loves hugging and holding his daughters… and will do so as long as he can.
“Daddy’s arms,” Johnson wrote on Instagram. “I ain’t gonna be able to hold ‘em like this forever, so you better believe I snatch these cookies and love ‘em up every moment I can. Plus, I know there’s gonna come a day where in daddy’s arms is the last place they want to be.” Aww. (Also somewhat ironic considering how many adults we know who would sure love some contact with those particular arms.)
In the post, Johnson also acknowledged that his youngest is already apprehensive about Dad cuddles.
“Baby Tiana Gia is already there with the ‘help me’ look on her face,” the father of three joked. But even when his kiddos don’t necessarily want him around, he will always want — and be there for — them.
“Can’t guarantee I’ll love and protect all my daughters for the rest of their lives,” Johnson wrote, “but I can guarantee I will for the rest of mine.”
This isn’t the first time Johnson has shared a super sweet (and personal) parenting moment on social media. In June, the actor posted a photo of him feeding his longtime girlfriend, Lauren Hashian, while she breastfed, and in October, Johnson shared a snapshot of his freshly painted fingers while talking about how his daughter’s emergency manicure made him late for work: #papabearpriorities #sorrynotsorry.
And we love it. So stay sweet, stay sensitive and stay present, Papa Rock.
