Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's Baby Girl, Jasmine, 'Loves Looking at Daddy's Tattoos': Photo
This would melt the toughest heart. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson shared a cute pic on Instagram on Sunday, May 29, showing his baby daughter, Jasmine, inspecting his tattoos.
“After we feed her, Jasmine just loves looking at daddy’s tattoos. I think it helps her digest,” he captioned the photo. “Can’t wait to one day explain to her what all this means. Chat about her cultures (Samoan, Armenian, African American and Italian). And while these symbols may appear to be primitive, unsophisticated and crude — they’re extremely sacred, thousands of years old and very powerful. My mana (strength).”
“Ironically enough the symbol she’s fixated on is our ATUA (our God) protected by the small building blocks of my life and then by shark teeth,” the action hero, who grew up in Hawaii, continued. “Yuuuuup, we gonna have some good daddy/daughter chats. Until then she’ll continue to use daddy’s tattoos as a place to scratch, drool and spit up.”
Jasmine, who was born in December, is the first child for the action hero, 44, and his longtime girlfriend Lauren Hashian. He also has a teenage daughter, Simone, from a previous marriage.
Johnson, whose father is a Black Nova Scotian and mother is Samoan, is set to star in Moana, an animated Disney movie about a Polynesian princess. He will voice (and sing) in his role as the demigod Maui in the film that’s due out in November.
The busy actor also shared a first look at his character, Hobbs, from the upcoming Furious 8, which is currently shooting.
“When you strip a man of all he has. All that’s important to him. You force him to return to his roots.. and sometimes that’s a very dangerous and twisted place,” Johnson captioned the black-and-white pic on Instagram.
“If I was going to return for another FAST & FURIOUS I wanted to come in and disrupt the franchise in a cool way that got fans fired up and their blood pumping to see a new version of Hobbs and his “Daddy’s gotta go to work” mentality and set the table in a cool way for where the character goes in the future,” he explained.
“Maybe it’s a spinoff movie. Maybe it’s more#FF movies,” he teased. “Or hell maybe Hobbs just gets on his motorcycle and rides off into the sunset never to be seen again.”
Furious 8, which also stars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Charlize Theron and Scott Eastwood, is set to be released in April 2017.
