Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is already bonding with his newborn baby girl, the proud WWF fighter-and-actor shared the first photo of his new daughter and revealed her name — Jasmine — after his girlfriend Lauren Hashian gave birth to their first child together on Wednesday, Dec. 16.

“Christmas came early,” Johnson, 43, wrote alongside the tender photo. “Within minutes of being born she was laying on daddy’s chest. And being a grateful man takes on a whole new meaning … Thank you guys so much for the awesome congratulatory wishes and love you’ve been sending @laurenhashianofficial and myself.

“We’re extremely grateful. Kinda crazy but in this cool and powerful skin to skin bonding moment with my newborn baby Jasmine, I had just one wish I asked the universe… Give me the strength to be a better man today than I was yesterday,” he continued. “If I can accomplish that, then I’d have a good shot at being a great father.
Johnson then offered up advice to all the young men who would become fathers.

“To all you young men out there who will be fathers one day, the goal of ‘being better’ will never steer you wrong. Trust me. Something else that’ll never steer you wrong is ‘walking thru the fire’ with your baby’s mama.

“I was right there during labor, helping her breathe, every highly intense contraction, every second of pain, right there watching the actual birth, cutting the cord and wiping the tears. Incredible. ”
The Rock –  is already dad to 14-year-old Simone, his daughter with ex-wife Dany Garcia.
“I was raised by and live with amazing and strong women, so the universe felt we needed one more,” he announced in November, revealing the sex of the baby on the way. “IT’S A BABY GIRL!! THANK YOU guys so much for the awesome support and love you’ve sent [Lauren] and myself from around the world. We’re so grateful for this blessing and thrilled to share the news with y’all.”

Again, THANK YOU guys so much for all the love during this blessed time. I always say I’m a lucky dude because I’ve got the greatest fans in the world – and it’s true. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your families from ours. #ChristmasCameEarlyToSayHello #WhileSleepOfficiallySaysGoodbye #2xProudPapaSilverback #SheCanDateWhenShes40 💪🏾👊🏾💯
