The Rock welcomed a baby, too

MONDAY was all about welcoming the new royal baby—Prince William and Duchess Kate welcomed a new prince. But Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson also welcomed a third baby.

“Skin to skin. Our mana,” Johnson said in the caption of a photo of himself cuddling his baby girl.

This is the third child and girl for Johnson—his second with partner Lauren Hashian. He also has a 16-year-old daughter with ex-wife Dany Garcia.

The new baby girl is named Tiana Gia Johnson.

“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,” Johson also shared on Instagram. “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.”

Meanwhile, an eastern Minnesota teen who asked her celebrity crush Johnson to prom got a huge surprise when he actually responded.

Stillwater Area High School Senior Katie Kelzenberg asked the actor to “Rock” it with her at the school’s May 5 prom in a Twitter video posted last week. The self-proclaimed fan was dressed like The Rock in the video, sporting a black turtleneck, jeans, a gold necklace and fanny pack.

Johnson’s recorded response was played over the school intercom. Johnson said he admires Kelzenberg’s courage, but that he won’t be able to attend prom because he will be in Hawaii filming “Jungle Cruise.”

Instead, Johnson rented out a nearby movie theater on Saturday for Kelzenberg and her friends and family to watch “Rampage.”
