Dwayne Johnson, aka “The Rock,” is a big ‘ol tough guy — literally. He’s MASSIVE and has made a career out of pulverizing opponents in the wrestling ring and on the big screen. You don’t think “aww-dorable” when thinking about The Rock, until now. Today he posted a sweet Instagram picture with his longtime girlfriend Lauren Hashian that revealed something incredibly personal and sweet in a cute and creative way: the gender of their baby.


Lauren is pregnant and the couple is having a baby girl! The announcement had a super touching caption that read, “I was raised by and live with amazing and strong women, so the universe felt we needed one more… IT’S A BABY GIRL!! THANK YOU guys so much for the awesome support and love you’ve sent @laurenhashianofficial and myself from around the world. We’re so grateful for this blessing and thrilled to share the news with y’all. #BringOnMoreEstrogenInOurHome #MeAndPuppyHobbsAreTheOnlyDudes #Proud2xPapaBear #JustOverHereMakingBabiesAndStuff.” What a caption, right?!

In the photo, the couple looks *thrilled* as they should, as Dwayne hugs Lauren’s growing baby bump. This happy twosome also fully embraced fall for this photo opp — those bright orange autumn leaves are stunning — so now when they look back on the announcement, they’ll always remember the time of year they found out about their baby girl. Congrats to The Rock and Lauren!
