Dwayne Johnson fishes for compliments from his baby girl, and it's legit adorable

Do you remember when you were in elementary school and your peers would bicker over whose dad could beat up whose?

Baby Tiana Gia Johnson will probably win that argument once she explains, “He’s the Rock.”

Dwayne Johnson posted a sweet video of himself with his third daughter, Tiana, who was born in April, softly asking for compliments. As she looks up to the actor with a gummy smile, you know that the compliments she offers are genuine.


The man who went from football to wrestling to being the highest-paid actor in history (yes, history) obviously takes his role of daddy seriously.

Tiana couldn’t help but gush in agreement when Johnson asked her if he was the “coolest daddy in the world” and the “smartest daddy in the world.”

Johnson isn’t new to daddy duty — in fact, he’s pretty experienced at the gig. The Rock has a soon-to-be-17-year-old daughter named Simone from his first marriage and shares 3-year-old Jasmine with his partner, Lauren Hashian.

Johnson pokes fun at himself in the Instagram caption by explaining that their dog, Hobbs, is in the background thinking, “Baby Tia stop encouraging him. It’s making me nauseated.”

And, in a form true to their friendship, he drags comedian and actor Kevin Hart into the bit by writing, “For the record, this is the same way I speak to [Kevin Hart].”


Dwayne Johnson perhaps channels his love for his babies in his latest film, Skyscraper, which came out July 13. The action-packed movie involves Johnson launching himself into the world’s tallest skyscraper as it catches on fire to save his family.
