This story may not be entirely about romance, but it is still romantic all the same. Everyone loves a good heartwarming story, and I am no different. So when I found out that one of my favourite male actors is to become a dad again, I just had to share the news. Where would we be without Social Media? Facebook, Twitter, Instagram….it’s the way of the world in 2015. Without it we wouldn’t know when our friends are scratching their bottoms, or picking their noses 🙂 and without it, I would not have found out that ‘The Rock’ had planted a little bitty seed inside his cute and adorable longtime girlfriend Lauren Hashian. Awww….you know you want to swoon 😉
Now if you have seen Dwayne in the movie The Game Plan, you could quite easily imagine how great a dad Dwayne would be. In the movie, Dwayne played the role of bachelor football star Joe Kingman, a man who seemed to have it all. In the movie, he is wealthy and carefree and his team is on the way to capturing a well deserved championship. Unexpectedly Joe is faced with some unexpected news, he has a young daughter, the result of a last fling with his ex-wife. Joe must learn to balance his personal and professional lives with the needs of his child. Dwayne played the role so well. The scene where Joe plays the guitar for his daughter is so beautiful…yeh…I got a tad soppy. But we could all see what a wonderful dad Dwayne would be.
43 year old Dwayne Johnson was best known as a WWE wrestler (World Wrestling Entertainment) from 1996 to 2004… hmm, that man could wrestle me into a mat any day 😉 oops……lol 🙂 he returned for a little itty bit from 2011 to 2013 but thankfully for all us hot blooded women, he reappeared back on the big screen to star in such movies as Furious 7, Hercules and San Andreas. Dwayne was married to Dany Garcia on May 3rd 1997, but on June 1st 2007, the couple announced they were separating amicably and intended to remain good friends. The result of their marriage was a beautiful daughter named Simone Alexandra who was born August 14th 2001. For the most part, Dwayne has kept his personal life as private as possible, but thanks to his Instagram account, he has given a little preview of his wonderful father-daughter relationship over the years.
Soon after Dwayne’s divorce from his college sweetheart, Dwayne began dating Lauren Hashian, the daughter of Boston drummer Sib Hashian. They cute couple first met in 2006 while Johnson was filming The Game Plan (aha, that wonderful daddy movie) and have been inseparable since. It was reported in a few gossipy sites back in September that the wrestler-turned-actor and his partner of nine years were expecting their first child together, but the Instagram post shared only a few hours ago is the first time the couple have confirmed the news.
Dwayne ‘The Rock” John may have a few movie plans in the pipework, but it wont be long before the big bear of a man add’s ‘diaper duty’ to his list of commitments for 2016. I wish the couple all the best for the future, and I am sure they will both make wonderful parents. I know I will be looking forward to more of Dwayne’s Instagram posts in the future.
