The Rock Is This Year's Sexiest Man Alive and We Are SO Not Surprised

But the People mag cover star promises to keep changing diapers!

Proof that changing diapers is a turn-on: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson was just named the 2016 Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine!

Not only is the 44-year-old Moana star "sweet, smart, and sculpted", but he can sing, he can act, and he can rock a Tooth Fairy tutu like nobody's business. He's also got some pretty serious social media game, and, most importantly, he's a proud hands-on papa to daughters Jasmine, 11 months, and Simone, 15.

In fact, after being handed the prestigious title that puts him in the company of studs like Clooney, Cruise, and Pitt, the former WWE champ couldn't help but give his kiddos a shoutout in posts on both Twitter and Instagram, where he announced his provocative new designation.

"Still up at 4am trainin' hard & takin' care of my babies.. sexily;)," he captioned a pic of the People cover that features him standing on the beach in jeans, a white tee, and a look on his face that can only be described as 'Who, me?'

Later, he turned up on Ellen, where the talk show host bestowed him with the sexy honor via an epic tribute video called "Dwayne The Rock Johnson: The Evolution of a Sex Symbol." We'll give you a minute to watch it because trust us—you won't want to miss that pencil-thin mustache phase!

As for whether the transition from mere mortal to SMA will be a tough one, The Rock told Ellen he doesn't see many big changes ahead.

"I can tell you now that what this means is I'm still gonna have to drive in my pick-up truck and change Jasmine's diapers," he explained. "But now I'm the Sexiest Man Alive."

No argument here.
