There are few bromances quite like the one between Kevin Hart and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
Though the pair relentlessly take digs at one another over social media, it’s obvious that it’s always in good humour and out of nothing but affection for one another. After all, though his stature might fool you, it’d be hard to imagine The Rock being aggressive towards anyone these days. He’s the very definition of a gentle giant.
That doesn’t stop him taking to Instagram to roast his bezzie in front of his 108million followers though.
As we all know (or are just finding out… better late then never right?) it was father’s day yesterday, Sunday June 17. Sadly, The Rock was celebrating father’s day alone due to work commitments. He still found time, however, to post a message for all the dads out there.
Check out the video here:
Happy father’s day to all the papa bears out there and all the daddies who are doing everything they gotta do to hold it down for their families, taking care of their families.
After a heartfelt moment thanking his partner and daughter for their surprise gift to him, The Rock just couldn’t help but throw in a little dig at Hart.
Simone, I love you, baby Jazzy, baby Tiana, daddy loves you. Baby Kevin Hart, daddy loves you too, even though you’re adopted. Happy father’s day.
Captioning the message, The Rock wrote:
Bitter sweat [sic] Sunday, but my baby girl’s made it the best they could and I’m grateful and proud to be their daddy. Even @kevinhart4real who’s having a rough Father’s Day as he’s just finding out on the ‘gram that he’s adopted. Sorry Kev, I may not be your real father, but I’ll always be yo daddy
Though Hart is yet to respond – and we’re sure he will – he wasn’t entirely absent from social media for the day either.
Posting on Instagram with a picture of himself pushing a stroller, he wrote:
Happy Father’s to me damn it #DaddySwag
This isn’t the first time the two dads have fought it out on social media.
After the birth of his daughter Tiana, The Rock shared an image of himself and the new arrival:
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
It’s a beautiful moment between a proud dad and his newborn daughter. Unfortunately, it didn’t last very long.
Hart then posted this very creepy image:
He captioned the image: ‘The Internet will forever be undefeated. This is hilarious as hell.’
The Rock went one step further and reposted the image but added a touch of poetry to it.
And here it is:
To my beloved son, @kevinhart4real
Twinkle Twinkle little Hart,
I just don’t know where to start,
Daddy will always love and protect your tiny little soul,
Even though you were delivered directly out of the butthole.
#Shhhh #JustShutYourLittleMouth#AndGoNightNight #OnDaddysPecMeat
The photoshop skills didn’t stop there, however.
A few days later, Hart made things even creepier:
Long talk with this little big jackass last night about the business & how hard we work & setting new goals for ourselves and also making 2018 possibly our biggest year yet. He got so excited because we started talking about Jumanji 2 & doing another movie together that I had to pop him in the mouth and tell him to shut the fuck up! The bottom line his that Kids will be Kids….I’m taking him to Disney land today to apologize. Good morning world HAPPY TUESDAY ???? #HardestWorkersInTheRoom #MyGuy #TheInternetIsUndefeated ….He’s also a slobbering baby which is annoying as hell…I think it’s the protein shakes ??? ….Also my post is funnier because you can tell that I just smacked the shit out of him in this photo. He's also the first baby born in the world with grey hair. We are going to make a shit load of money together #HeWontStopDinkingMilk #HisNickNameIsBabyBigHead ??? #Revenge ??
If their social media is anything to go by, the chemistry between them onscreen is definitely real. We can’t wait for their next film together!
