Now that little “pebble,” Tiana Gia, is nearly two months old. Johnson shared a photo of Hashian breastfeeding the precious baby.
But it’s what Johnson himself is doing in the photo that is really getting attention.
Johnson captions the photo that you’re about to see with: “I’ll handle this business.”
The image depicts him feeding his girlfriend, Lauren Hashian, while she cradles their two-month-old daughter, Tiana Gia, breastfeeding her.
“Mama @laurenhashianofficial has her hands full nursing/feeding Baby Tia,” Johnson explains. “So I’m feedin’ mama her dinner.”
He continues, stating that to do so is: “my pleasure.”
Johnson says that he has “so much respect to her and all mamas out there holding it down and running things.”
“Just landed,” he says, adding: “And good to get all my girl’s settled in.”
Awwww! This is such a wholesome family photo.
Johnson’s captions aren’t done.
“Now, I gotta go satisfy my own appetite,” he announces. “Iron Paradise, here I come.”
He tags: “#EveryoneGetsFed”
Apolgetically, he adds: “#DaddysGottaGoToWork”
“#ChivalryIsToughOnTheKnees,” he admits.
While some might argue that what he was doing deserves a better label than chivalrous, knees grow much less tolerating over time.
This was a cute family photo.
The post received over 5 million likes in the first 24 hours alone.
But why, you wonder, are so many people talking about it?
One might be tempted to say that this is because Hashian is breastfeeding their daughter, but she’s covered and angled in such a way that no part of her breast is exposed.
(Which is fine — women’s liberation is about showing or concealing as much as you like, not about just shedding clothing no matter your comfort level)
No, what makes this picture so beautiful has less to do with the breastfeeding and more to do with Johnson’s actions.
Even with his busy schedule, he continues to play an active role in his family.
He can’t nurse Tiana himself, but he can certainly be involved. And that’s beautiful.
Last month, Dwayne Johnson penned a beautiful Mother’s Day tribute to Lauren Hashian.
In it, he praised her virtues as a mother, but also as a human being.
She takes on tremendous responsibilities when it comes to his life and the life of their family, from working out the logistics of uprooting their lives to travel with him while he films to taking on added parenting duties to compensate for his work schedule.
He has also praised each of his daughters, lauding them as “strong women” from the moments of their respective births.
Johnson is the sort of high-energy man who cannot contain his excitement about the women he lives — and he would never try to hide that.
Johnson has a tendency to be straightforward with his fans.
Earlier this year, he revealed his depression battle and even his mother’s suicide attempt.
Of course, he has also shared — or potentially overshared — about much lighter subjects.
When DJ Khaled shared that he is what some would call a pillow princess, he got roasted by everyone. Johnson was loud and proud about how enthusiastic he is about performing oral sex.
You know what? We think that by modeling good behavior for his fans and followers, he’s making the world a better place.
Also, he’s just a great dude.
