Who knew that The Rock was such a ball of emotions? The rough and tough former WWE star got a bit choked up in a new interview where Dwayne Johnson discussed his wonderful relationship with his daughter, Simone. Click to watch the touching interview.
On the new episode of the Emmy-nominated series, Oprah’s Master Class, Dwayne Johnson, 43, (The Rock) discusses his tight bond with daughter Simone Johnson, 14. The actor wore his emotions on his sleeve as he told the cameras how it felt to hold baby Simone in his arms and how their relationship continued to grow.
“I always wanted to be a great dad. I always wanted to give Simone things that I felt I never got,” the Furious 7 actor stated. “When I held her when she was born, I held her in these two hands and I said to her, ‘I will always, always take care of you, for the rest of your life. You are safe.’ Literally held her in these two hands. Throughout the years, throughout the ups and downs, I’ve realized that the most important thing that I could do with my daughter is lead our life with love. Not success, not fame, not anything else but, ‘I’m always here for you. I love you.'” So sweet, he truly is an amazing guy.
The tears started to flow when Dwayne discussed an imtinate conversation he had had with Simone when she was 13-years-old. “There was a time where I said, ‘Do me a favor: I want you to tell me what is the thing that you love most about our relationship. And she’s like, ‘Oh, come on.’ ‘No, no. What’s the one thing that you love most about our relationship?’ And she said, ‘Well, that I trust you.’ And for a 13-year-old girl to say that to her dad, considering where I was at 13, the instability I had…She said, ‘Well, that I trust you and that we have a very special bond.'”
Dwayne went on to add, “And that moved me. And so, you know, at 13, she’s saying that and…you know, I couldn’t ask for anything else… I love that girl.” He is so wonderful. We can’t wait for him to be a dad again to another little princess. These girls are super lucky to have such a loving and passionate father in their corner.
