Fans said Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is “dad goals” once again after he wrote his 1-year-old daughter an adorable message in honor of her birthday.

On Thursday, the “Skyscraper” star celebrated Tiana Gia’s first birthday with a simple but gushing tribute that just might melt your heart.

The pro-wrestler turned actor told the little girl he would have her back forever. The famous dad wrote on Instagram:

Happy 1st Birthday to our strong lil’ beauty, Tiana Gia. Get used to daddy’s hands kid ~ they’ll always have your back.

When she was born Johnson made a promise to “love, protect, guide and make ya laugh for the rest of my life,” just as he did with his two older daughters.

Skin to skin. Our mana. Blessed and proud to bring another strong girl into this world. Tiana Gia Johnson came into this world like a force of nature and Mama @laurenhashianofficial labored and delivered like a true rockstar. 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. 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. But, if you really want to understand the single most powerful and primal moment life will ever offer – watch your child being born. Its a life changer and the respect and admiration you have for a woman, will forever be boundless. And to my third and youngest daughter, Tiana Gia – like I did when your two older sisters Simone Alexandra and Jasmine Lia were born, you have my word, I’ll love, protect, guide and make ya laugh for the rest of my life. Your crazy dad has many responsibilities and wears many hats in this big ol’ world, but being your dad will always be the one I’m most proud to wear. Oh and one more thing.. you’re gonna love rollin’ in daddy’s pick up truck. #TianaGiaJohnson🌺 #3rdDaughter #BlessesAndGratefulMan #ImInTROUBLE

In a touching post, following her birth, he told Tiana he was proud to bring another strong little girl into the world:

Your crazy dad has many responsibilities and wears many hats in this big ol’ world, but being your dad will always be the one I’m most proud to wear.

Johnson’s partner, Lauren Hashian, also commemorated Tiana on her birthday.

The couple welcomed their second child together on April 17, 2018.

As reported by Us Weekly, in a series of Instagram stories, the 1-year-old’s mother, Hashian, also penned the little girl a tender message alongside a photo. She wrote:

Tiana…the truest purest love. The puzzle piece that completed the picture we didn’t even know was missing. Baby Tia we love love loooooove youuu!!!

The mother of two also paid credit to her longtime partner and praised Johnson for his dedication as a parent:

And you my man @therock on the cover of @time magazine. It’s unbelievable yet easy to believe … not a wiser, kinder, more intelligent, loving, motivating, encouraging, supportive, brilliant man & partner in life and love and babies and allll things I know.

Johnson graced the cover of Time as one of the magazine’s most influential people this week.
