Can you smell what the Rock is cooking?
Perhaps not, but his long-term partner, Lauren Hashian, has a bun in the oven and Dwayne Johnson cannot wait to be a dad again.
Johnson and Hashian, who’ve been together for a decade, announced the news online mere hours ago and the Internet has lost its collective mind over the incoming tiny newborn pebble.
Check out the Rock in action below:

Knowing his way around social media, Dwayne announced the newcomer in the perfect way to garner the most likes and validation from his fans, with what can only be described as a cute overload.
Using his other little baby girl, Jasmine Lia and a Christmas tree:
Our Jasmine Lia would like to make a big announcement – IT’S A GIRL! ? @laurenhashianofficial and I are boundlessly grateful for this blessing as this spring we’ll welcome our second baby. Plus, Jazzy is excited to boss around and protect her lil’ sis. And once again, big daddy is completely surrounded by beautiful estrogen and loving, powerful female mana. All girls. One dude. And a boy dog. I wouldn’t have it any other way. #ItsAGirl #GratefulMan #TequilaTime ????
Sitting in front of the family tree, Johnson shared Jasmine’s thoughts with fans, writing; ‘It’s a girl! Can’t wait to be a big sister!!! And finally be the boss!’
Dwayne then shared his own thoughts, writing:

#MOANA was absolutely magical – the animation was so real at times it looked tangible, the storyline was so incredibly touching and the MUSIC was unforgettable! They captured and embraced the spirit of the Polynesian culture, islands, music, and people and truly honored their beauty in this film. It's a culture that is so close to my own heart and a big part of my life. We will be so proud when Jasmine watches this one day! Went through an entire pack of tissues ? ❤️ The actors, filmmakers and everyone who worked on this movie poured their hearts into it and it shows ? Congrats!! @therock @auliicravalho #LinManuelMiranda @disneysmoana ? And thank you to the dream team "village" who helped me prepare & @mercglow for hiding the circles under my eyes and helping me look awake and non sleep deprived ??????
The Moana star announced how happy he was to be surrounded by such great women in his life, having been previously outspoken about the importance of gender equality.
Hashian gave birth to little Jasmine in 2015, after her and Johnson got together a decade ago. The Hollywood actor and former wrestler also has a 16-year-old daughter, Simone, with his ex-wife Dany Garcia.
The Rock has been doing his rounds on the press circuit in recent weeks for his soon-to-be-released homage to Jumanji, titled Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.
In fact, appearing on The Graham Norton Show this Friday, fellow guest Rebel Wilson alluded to the former wrestler’s fertility, when he demonstrated his Presidential smoulder – needless to say, Dwayne also responded to those Presidency rumours.
Exclaiming she’d been impregnated by the look from across the red couch, Graham was quick to quip, ‘Rebel’s Pebble!’, making a subtle yet smart remark about Johnson’s former ring nickname, ‘The Rock’.
It’s been a big week for the Johnson family all round, with Simone becoming the first ever Golden Globes Ambassador.
What a morning for our ohana! Very proud of my first born @simonegjohnson carrying the torch for our industry’s #GoldenGlobes as the first ever #GoldenGlobesAmbassador. I’m also super impressed this 16yr old got up at 2am this morning to get ready — a full 2hrs before her maniac papa bear dad gets up to workout. ?????. #OurDNA #GoldenGlobesAmbassador #Nominations #75thGoldenGlobes
She’s the first-ever Golden Globe Ambassador of the upcoming 2018 Golden Globe Awards.
The title replaces the previous Miss Golden Globe which the Hollywood Foreign Press Association chooses each year from a pool of celebrity offspring.
Previous years have seen Sylvester Stallone’s three daughters, take up the mantle, as part of the glamorous awards ceremony which will take place on January 7 2018 and honour the best and brightest in film…
Or so we thought. Nomination snubs this year have clouded the Best Director category, as neither Greta Gerwig nor Patty Jenkins received nods for Lady Bird or Wonder Woman.
You can watch the trailer for Gerwig’s debut below:

Perhaps, as the future President, The Rock’s love, admiration and respect for all women – not just his daughters and partner – will translate into better gender equality in film.
The Rock for President!
