Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Announces Birth Of Third Child

Closer Weekly

Welcome into the world, Tiana Gia Johnson!

Congratulations are in order for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and his girlfriend Lauren Hashian who just gave birth to their second bundle of joy.

Tiana will be joining her two-year-old sister Jasmine in the Johnson brood, which also includes their father's 16-year-old daughter Simone, who he shares with his ex-wife, Dany Garcia.

Johnson announced that he and Hashian were expecting their second child together in December when he posted an adorable snapshot of his daughter Jasmine in front of a sign that said, "It's a girl! Can't wait to be a big sister!!! And Finally be the boss!"

"Our Jasmine Lia would like to make a big announcement – IT’S A GIRL,” the actor captioned the photo on Instagram. "@laurenhashianofficial and I are boundlessly grateful for this blessing as this spring we’ll welcome our second baby," Johnson captioned the Instagram post.

"Plus, Jazzy is excited to boss around and protect her lil’ sis. And once again, big daddy is completely surrounded by beautiful estrogen and loving, powerful female mana. All girls. One dude. And a boy dog. I wouldn’t have it any other way."

Fast forward to April 23, and Johnson took to the social media site again to show off his precious newborn and praise the other wonderful women in his life.

"Skin to skin. Our mana. Blessed and proud to bring another strong girl into this world. Tiana Gia Johnson came into this world like a force of nature and Mama @laurenhashianofficial labored and delivered like a true rockstar [sic]," Johnson wrote on his lengthy Instagram post.

"I was raised and surrounded by strong, loving women all my life, but after participating in baby Tia’s delivery, it’s hard to express the new level of love, respect and admiration I have for @laurenhashianofficial and all mamas and women out there."  

"Word to the wise gentlemen, it’s critical to be by your lady’s head when she’s delivering, being as supportive as you can.. holding hands, holding legs, whatever you can do. But, if you really want to understand the single most powerful and primal moment life will ever offer - watch your child being born. Its a life changer and the respect and admiration you have for a woman, will forever be boundless."

"And to my third and youngest daughter, Tiana Gia - like I did when your two older sisters Simone Alexandra and Jasmine Lia were born, you have my word, I’ll love, protect, guide and make ya laugh for the rest of my life."

"Your crazy dad has many responsibilities and wears many hats in this big ol’ world, but being your dad will always be the one I’m most proud to wear."

"Oh and one more thing.. you’re gonna love rollin’ in daddy’s pick up truck."

As this is his third child, Johnson knows what to expect in the coming weeks with a newborn in the house.

"I’m just being there and being very flexible and nimble … a lot of fathers understand this: We don’t sleep," he told Us Weekly. "When the baby mama is sleeping, any movement in the middle of the night, any kind of just turning over, I’m like, ‘Hey, are you OK?’ Constantly. So it’s been like that. It’s an exciting time!"

The joyous occasion of his third daughter is exactly what Johnson needed, as Jasmine was rushed to the hospital back in March. Luckily, his middle child is on the mend and he has nothing but happiness surrounding his entire family.

But, that wasn't the only time Johnson's experienced a scare in his family. When he was 15 years old, Johnson saved his mother's life after she attempted to commit suicide.

He said his family was going through a difficult time and struggled to make ends meet, which led his mother into a deep depression.

"She got outta the car on Interstate 65 in Nashville and walked into oncoming traffic," Johnson wrote on Instagram. "Big rigs and cars swerving outta the way not to hit her."

"I grabbed her and pulled her back on the gravel shoulder of the road. What’s crazy about that suicide attempt is to this day, she has no recollection of it whatsoever. Probably best she doesn’t."

Thankfully, she recovered from the incident and is able to see her son bask in his rightfully deserved success.

Tiana isn't the only famous baby to come into the world today, as the Duchess of Cambridge just gave birth to her third child.

Just seven hours after Kate Middleton delivered her son - who's name is still unknown - she and Prince William stepped out with their newborn, sharing the first glimpse of the little prince in front of the Lindo Wing at St. Mary’s Hospital in London, England.

"Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge was safely delivered of a son at 1101hrs. The baby weighs 8lbs 7oz. The Duke of Cambridge was present for the birth. Her Royal Highness and her child are both doing well. The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales,The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry and members of both families have been informed and are delighted with the news," Kensington Palace announced on Twitter.

During the photo shoot, fans of the royal family noticed Middleton had paid tribute to the late Princess Diana in her outfit choice. The pair both wore a red outfit with a a white Peter Pan collar. While the Duchess wore this outfit while presenting her third child, Diana adorned her ensemble while introducing Prince Harry into the world 34 years ago.

While bookies are taking bets on what the newborn's name will be, fans are speculating their son will have a more modern name.

Earlier this month, Prince William said he would insist the name of the new baby would be named after midfielder Jack Grealish, a player on his favorite soccer team, Aston Villa.

"I’m going to insist the baby is called Jack,” before adding after a pause "... or Jackie."

How do you feel about the births of these famous newborns?
