Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is all about his three daughters.
Most recently, the proud father shared a photo of himself and his middle child, Jasmine, in the pool.
According to Johnson, Jasmine is learning how to swim and it’s a joy for him as a father to see his children grow and learn new things as they continue to get older.
The dad wrote:
Truuuuust. I always got you.
Love seeing her work herself up to break thru and conquer her fears as she’s learning how to swim. Man I cherish these blessings and any day off I can get these days to spend with all my ladies at home.
I also cherish the moments when she says “daddy I have to pee” and we both share an evil laugh when I say just pee in the pool…Then I get in trouble with [wife, Lauren]. All in a day’s work
However, as a result of the backlash he received because Jasmine wasn’t wearing a bathing suit, the actor has since deleted the post despite his fans coming to his defense.
Underneath the now deleted photo, fans praised The Rock for how loving of a dad he is:
The way you look at her, unconditional love
Aaaah what a lovely moment between father an daughter fabulous
And others came in his defense when some shamed him for posting a photo of his daughter without clothes on.
People are SHOOK over the child having no clothes on. Thats HIS daughter, in THEIR pool at THEIR home on a lovely day… seriously… the only people sexualising this are the people commenting.
As Johnson explained a few months ago, as a very in-demand celebrity, his schedule can get pretty busy, meaning more nights on the road and fewer nights at home.
