The Rock welcomes baby girl

 For Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Christmas came early this year with the birth of his daughter.

Jasmine was born last week and on Monday he made the official announcement on his Instagram account, thanking everyone for the congratulatory wishes he and girlfriend Lauren Hashian had received.
'Christmas came early! Within minutes of being born she was laying on daddy's chest. And being a grateful man takes on a whole new meaning,' he wrote.
In the sepia photo, the rock is holding his newborn daughter on his chest in a 'powerful skin to skin bonding moment'.
'I had just one wish I asked the universe... Give me the strength to be a better man today than I was yesterday. If I can accomplish that, then I'd have a good shot at being a great father.
'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.'
He says he was 'right there' during labour, helping Hashian breathe through every contraction and every second of pain - watching the birth, cutting the cord and wiping the tears.
'Now don't get me wrong boys, it wasn't like I was at the end of the table, squatting like a catcher waiting for the fastball to come down the pike.. .But as men, it's a miracle we should witness because it'll give you a whole new respect for the strength and beauty of a woman.'
Jasmine is the first child for the couple, who has been together nine years.
She joins Johnson's 14-year-old daughter, Simone Alexandra Johnson, who he shares custody with ex-wife Dany Garcia.
