The Rock’s Announcement of His Daughter’s Birth is Everything!

I just had to share this because when I read the Instagram post, it truly touched my heart. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson announced the birth of his baby girl on Instagram today, and the post he wrote is just so beautiful. Did you see it? If not, here it is:

 

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. 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. #TianaGiaJohnson🌺 #3rdDaughter #BlessesAndGratefulMan #ImInTROUBLE

So beautifully written! I love seeing fathers supporting their partners through pregnancy and birth. I think Dwayne Johnson’s post is very inspiring for men who are unsure of how to support their partners during birth.

I remember when I was in labor with Zephaniah, Travis was by my side for every moment. He held my hands as I tightly squeezed his hands through each contraction. He held me in his arms and rocked with me as I swayed my hips from side to side. As he drove us to the hospital, he held my hand the entire time and shared encouraging words with me to let me know he was there with me.

During my labor, Travis never left my side. He told me how proud he was of me and he kept coaching me on to not give up. He knew how important it was to me to birth our baby naturally.

So to see a celebrity like The Rock also share his beautiful experience of supporting his partner and witnessing the birth of his daughter, it brings me so much hope and joy for other families who need to know pregnancy is a great blessing. Family is everything. And birth is beautiful.

Whether a mom births her baby without pain medication, with the aid of pain medication, or delivers via C-section, it doesn’t matter. The birth of your baby is a beautiful experience and family support is very important. I just love seeing people share their pregnancy and birth stories. It truly encourages other families.

Thank you, Dwayne Johnson, for sharing this with the world. Congratulations to Lauren Hashid and Dwayne Johnson on the birth of their beautiful baby girl!
