Johnson has often talked about living in a house full of women — he and Hashian share young daughters Tiana and Jasmine, and he has an adult daughter, Simone, from a previous relationship — saying it’s made him a better man.
“It’s just the best thing … I have a house full of just strong, badass women,” Johnson told Extra. “It’s terrifying, but it’s awesome.”
“I grew up an only child,” he continued. “My dad was tough. He kicked my ass, so there was a lot of testosterone growing up. So there is this balance — having all this estrogenic energy — then also me having the opportunity to infuse ‘father’ and hopefully setting a standard of what a man should be in their lives.”
In a photo that melted hearts around the world, Johnson fed Hashian while she breastfed baby Tia.
“Mama @laurenhashianofficial has her hands full nursing/feeding Baby Tia, so I’m feedin’ mama her dinner. My pleasure. So much respect to her and all mamas out there holding it down and running things.”
Hashian posted the sweetest photo of the growing family when the couple welcomed Tia in April 2018.
What a Star
Jasmine and Hashian were at Johnson’s side in December 2017 when he received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Stealing a Kiss
Though they don’t often walk the red carpet together, Hashian was happy to come out in December 2017 for the Hollywood premiere of Johnson’s film Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.
News to Share
The couple’s best productions? Their daughters Jasmine — here, announcing the news of baby sister’s impending arrival — and Tia.
Hashian practically looked like an Oscar statuette herself when joining Johnson for the 89th annual Academy Awards in February 2017.
Agreeing with many that Hashian is the “nicest person [he’s] ever met,” Johnson said in 2018 that the two were in no rush to get married.
“I just refer to her as my wife all the time. So a lot of people are like, ‘Oh, did you get married?’” he told Entertainment Tonight. “I’m like, ‘No. Easy. Don’t rush big daddy.’”
A 2014 selfie posted by Hashian brought it back to the couple’s early days.
“I’ve learned that when you love, you’ve got to love powerfully,” Johnson told PEOPLE of his life now. “When you’re grateful for everything you have, it just leads to happiness.”
In a 2012 interview with PEOPLE, Johnson reflected on how lucky he was to find Hashian.
“I was so fortunate to have fallen in love once,” said Johnson. “To fall in love again? That’s a hard thing to do twice in the position I’m in. I’m one lucky son of a bitch.”
Lots of Laughs
After being crowned as PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive in 2016, Johnson gushed over the pair’s love for each other, explaining that they have “the greatest relationship” because they know how to make each other laugh.
“First of all, she teases me about everything. Everything,” he told PEOPLE. “Nothing is off-limits in our house. And it’s the beauty of it. And I tease her with everything.”
Despite her rare red carpet moments, Johnson told Esquire Hashian is always top of mind when he’s working on major projects.
“We do these stories and we talk so much about the business end, the success end, but then Lauren isn’t mentioned and my daughter [Simone] isn’t mentioned,” he said before the births of Jasmine and Tia. “I always like making sure we find the balance and my home life is in there and Lauren Hashian is in there and my daughter is in there.”
Rooted in Love
On co-parenting with Hashian and ex Dany Garcia, Johnson told PEOPLE that they’ve found a good groove.
“The one thing that helped Dany and I was to remember what we once were to help us move forward. And I’m so grateful,” he said. “We just have this awesome family that is truly non-traditional but so rooted in love.”
Eyes on the Prize
In his SMA interview with PEOPLE, Johnson also added that Hashian wasn’t going to be surprised when he told her the good news because “she already thinks I’m the Sexiest Man Alive.”
The Rock brought together Hashian, his ex Dany Garcia and more family and friends to celebrate daughter Simone’s birthday in 2016.
“We gather to celebrate and honor your 15yrs of sheer awesomeness,” he wrote on Instagram. “We joke all the time about it, but when I was 15, I was hustlin’ cars from crack heads and here you are the most amazing, humble, hilariously sarcastic, brilliant, down to earth 15yr old that any dad could ask for. I’m one lucky man.”
“I love you. WE ALL love you. And thanks for always being down to watch The Purge movies with me.”
Talent in the Family
Hashian is a singer and music producer who caught the bug for the music business at an early age thanks to her dad Sib Hashian, who was the drummer for the band Boston for their first two albums in the mid-’70s.
The couple’s low-key 2016 New Year’s Eve was just the way they like it. In fact, it’s the little things that make their relationship work.
Speaking to PEOPLE in 2016, Johnson recalled a particularly romantic moment.
“I was in the kitchen one morning, and we were talking about Percy Sledge — [he sings] ‘When a man loves a woman.’ And Lauren goes, ‘Oh! I love that song!’ And then before we went to bed, I called her into the bedroom, put my phone on, hit play, and it was that song. And we slow-danced. On the romantic chart, that might be up there,” he said.
In his SMA interview, Johnson also lavished Hashian with the sweetest praise.
“Watching Lauren be a mom has been one of the most enlightening things I’ve ever seen,” he said. “You see as a man, you see your lady, your partner, your woman, your one, you see them in a certain light and then when they become Mom, it’s a whole other perspective that if you open your eyes wide enough, it’s like a kaleidoscope. You click it a couple of times and it just changes everything.”
Bump in the Road
Sharing the couple’s first round of happy baby news in 2015, Hashian wrote: “So grateful and in awe of this time. To experience creating a little life is just incredible. This beautiful cycle of life and womanhood beginning again. And like Big Daddy says – Couldn’t be prouder of all the kickass women she’s going to have around her! And Men of course ;)”
Hashian and her love were all dressed up for the 2015 Oscars.
In 2017, Johnson surprised Hashian on her birthday.
“I had my trailer decorated as a surprise when she walked in as we sang some happy birthday.. But why stop there when we can have mo fun… as she was getting this trailer surprise, I had a crew go to our house and decorate so when she got home she was surprised yet again,” he wrote on Instagram.
“We celebrated all weekend and to cap it off our lovely mamas performed a beautiful Polynesian hula for the honored birthday girl,” he continued.
“THANK YOU TO EVERYONE, family, friends and all who was involved in creating such a phenomenal birthday weekend for Lauren. Amazing and so cool to see all the endless love that everyone has for this girl. Myself included. Happy Birthday darlin’ darlin’! I love you and you already know, but it’s appropriate I say it again, I’m a grateful man you were born. Now excuse me while I go destroy the rest of your cake.”
