Last month, on an episode of Today, Johnson discussed how Jasmine loves to introduce her famous dad to his fans. The Red Notice star said she's come to realize how notable her dad really is and catches on when others around her recognize him.

"So now, what [Jasmine will] do is if she gets wind that someone is noticing me — we're at a park and kids are noticing or parents — she'll come up and grab me and she'll go, 'Dad, come on! They recognize you. Come, say hello. Come on, you're The Rock!' " he shared on the show.

"So she pulls me over to this family. And she's, like, 'Here. This is my dad,' " he recalled with a laugh. "It's the best."

Back in June, the Jungle Cruise actor opened up to PEOPLE about life as a girl dad. Johnson insisted the most important thing he's discovered while raising his daughters is "just be there."

"You can be wired, as a lot of fathers are, to fix things. Just having an expanded capacity to listen and be more tender and gentle really gave me that ability to solve whatever the issue is, but with them compared to for them," he added.

At home, daughters Jasmine and Tia "are tornadoes and very passionate about how they feel," the actor said, laughing. "Lauren and I like raising them in an environment and a culture where there are no limits to life. You can do anything you want, and you can achieve anything you want. However, I need you to be flexible with how we get there."
