Rejoice my friends for the world will so be blessed with a tiny pebble ready to be carved into his/her father's chiseled yet cheerful image. That's right, Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and his girlfriend Lauren Hashian are having their first baby together!
According to US Weekly magazine, the happy couple are "so excited!" about the baby news, and a source told Radar Online that:
Dwayne and Lauren couldn’t be more thrilled. They’ve been rock solid for about nine years now and felt it was time to expand their family. Lauren’s brother is also expecting a baby, so the entire family is overjoyed!
Considering Johnson's strong feelings about the importance of a fulfilling home life, it's no surprise that he is absolutely over-the-moon about the prospect of welcoming a new baby into his life. Last year everyone's favorite soft hard man expressed his love for his family in Esquire when he said:
We do these stories and we talk so much about the business end, the success end, but then Lauren isn't mentioned and my daughter [Simone] isn't mentioned. I always like making sure we find the balance and my home life is in there and Lauren Hashian is in there and my daughter is in there. You gotta get the better half in there. With all the cool s--t and success that I've been lucky enough to get? That doesn't happen unless the home life is solid.
One things for sure, The Rock is certainly well-equipped for throwing himself into all of the trials and tribulations of fatherhood for the second time. Just last week he proved his heroic dad skills when he adopted two adorable French Bulldog puppies and plunged into a pool fully clothed to save one of his defenseless fur babies from drowning.
Although Johnson and Hashian have not yet confirmed their exciting news, the baby is reportedly due in January 2016.
