Hollywood tough guy Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is a total softie when it comes to his daughters.
The star, 49, who shares Jasmine, 5, and Tiana, 3, with wife Lauren Hashian, "wasn't around a lot when his eldest, Simone [19, with ex Dany Garcia] was young, but he's making up for it now by being a hands-on dad," a pal shares with OK!.
When Johnson isn't on set, "he dotes on them 24/7," the friend adds. "He gets them up in the morning, cooks for them and reads them bedtime stories. And if they have a boo-boo, he's all over it."
The proud papa is so ga-ga over his girls that "he's always gushing about all the cute things they did," adds the pal. "They have him wrapped around their little fingers!"
"Dwayne loves fatherhood," says the friend. "He'd be down for another kid, if he can convince his lady!"
Johnson seemed especially thankful for his supportive family when he contracted COVID-19 last year, a time that the wrestler turned actor found "most challenging and difficult" to overcome.
In a candid Instagram post, The Rock spoke about what it was like overcoming the deadly coronavirus. "This has been one of the most challenging and difficult things we have ever had to endure as a family. We're on the other end of it, we're on the other side. We're no longer contagious, and we are — thank God — we are healthy," the actor said in the video.
Even though Johnson has overcome many obstacles both in and out of the ring, COVID-19 really took a toll on him. "I've gotten knocked around and gotten my ass kicked in the past but testing positive for COVID-19 is much different than overcoming nasty injuries," he explained at the time, "or being evicted, or even being broke, which I have been more than a few times."
