Can you smell what The Rock is cooking?! It's a bun in the oven!

Yup, Dwayne Johnson is expecting a baby with his pregnant girlfriend, Lauren Hashian. The Rock and Hashian have been together for nearly a decade.

Hashian is 12 year's her man's junior, at 31, and a singer-songwriter. When it comes to public appearances, the couple mostly keeps a low profile, rarely walking red carpets together. But in interviews he has gushed about his other half, and the unwavering support she provides.

The 43-year-old actor already has a 14-year-old daughter with his former wife, but it will be the first child the pair will have together.... sort of!

The family recently became parents to two new puppies over Labor Day weekend! And they're already getting into trouble: The star posted an Instagram photo (below) of himself, fully clothed in the pool with the two sweet French bulldog puppies, one under each arm. A lengthy caption included the details about how he had to jump in (with his mobile phone still in his pocket—oops!) and rescue the pups from their ambitious and nearly deadly adventure in the deep end. (What parents would do to save our children, human and furry alike!)

Looks like the Johnson family will be plenty busy when the new baby comes. Congrats to the star couple!
