The Rock's Big Plans for His Toddler Daughter Are Feminist & Fantastic
Dwayne Johnson, aka "The Rock," may come off as a tough action star, but to see that he's actually a real softie, you can look no further than his Instagram. Two days ago, the proud papa-of-two shared a photo of himself with his 16-month-old daughter Jasmine. While the photo itself is truly heartwarming, the caption is on another level of sweetness.
"There are mornings in life where there are no words.. this is not one of those mornings. Jazzy, let daddy tell you his goals," The Fate of the Furious star wrote. "By 5, you'll be looking people in the eye when you firmly shake their hand. By 8, you'll know how to fish, drive daddy's pick up truck and do cardio. And by 10, you'll be able to directly say to people, "Great job, I like it a lot, but let's see how we can make it better". Helluva plan right sweetheart? Buh! *she points to the ground at a bug. It was a good talk. #DaddyDaughterMoments #TeachEmYoung #PickUpTrucks #AndBuh."
Every daddy of a daughter has goals for her, but The Rock's agenda clearly illustrates that his goals for his baby girl are gender-neutral!
It's no surprise that he feels this way, considering that last month, he shared a beautiful collage of the women in his life, in honor of International Women's Day, writing, "I come from a family of beautiful, strong, diverse and intelligent women. They inspire and challenge me daily to become a better man, father and role model.”

Love it! The Rock's badass feminist attitude obviously informs how he parents lil Jazzy alongside longtime girlfriend Lauren Hashian, as well as his older daughter, 15-year-old Simone, who he shares with his first wife Dany Garcia. The girls certainly are lucky to be able to call Johnson their dad! And he's lucky to have the privilege to raise two daughters who will undoubtedly be like the other women in his family: seriously empowered!
