Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson says it is “the best thing” to be surrounded by so many “strong, badass women”.
The 47-year-old actor who has daughters Simone, 17, Jasmine, three, and 15-month-old Tiana loves having “all this estrogenic energy” in his house and he hopes he can “set a standard of what a man should be” in their lives.
He told Extra: “It’s just the best thing … I have a house full of just strong, badass women. I grew up an only child. My dad was tough.
“He kicked my ass, so there was a lot of testosterone growing up. So there is this balance – having all this estrogenic energy – then also me having the opportunity to infuse father and hopefully setting a standard of what a man should be in their lives.”
The former wrestler revealed he has a new respect for women after he helped to deliver his baby.
He said: “I was encouraging her – holding her hand. And the doctor said, ‘Would you like to come down and watch and help?’ I said, ‘Yup, I’m going to come down. Watch. Help. I will say, it was the most amazing experience I’ve ever seen. I look at Lauren, and women and mothers, in a different light than I ever have before. And it was beautiful. I’m holding legs, everything. And out comes the baby. I know, right? Crazy. Cause you roll the dice, you don’t know how it’s going go to go. A lot of stuff happens.”
Dwayne announced the birth of Tiana in late April when he posted a photo of himself holding his baby with a bare chest on Instagram and admitted at the time it was “life-changing” to have been involved in her delivery.
As reported by The Sauce, The Rock is starring in the upcoming Fast and Furious spin-off, Hobbs & Shaw Film which is slated to be released on the 1st of August 2019 alongside Jason Statham and Idris Elba.
