Dwayne Johnson hearts Lauren Hashian: The couple that redefines love, and gives every one of us hope
The former WWE star met the singer while shooting in 2006 and began dating her in 2007, after his divorce from first wife, Dany Garcia. Now the couple has two children.
Thousands across the world Google search if 'Dwayne The Rock' Johnson and his long-term girlfriend, Lauren Hashian, are married, often prompted by the adorable pictures the couple posts on social media and The Rock constantly referring to Lauren as his "wife".
On April 23, the couple welcomed their second child and Johnson's third daughter, filling the internet with love. With the actor calling his girlfriend a "true rockstar" and gushing over his "another strong girl in the world," it was established that the duo is here to prove that a big happy family is a possibility, even without marriage. Not that they don't think of tying the knot soon; they were planning to wed last spring, but Lauren got pregnant and she did not want to "take pictures being pregnant in a wedding dress."
In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 'Skyscraper' star stated that he was in no rush to marry his girlfriend, even though, she basically takes care of 'The Rock' household and the business. Their love has been transparent for the public eye even though the couple keeps it private, and their chemistry is now emerging as an epitome of relationship goals. The Rock, who was first married to his high school sweetheart, Dany Garcia, before finding love with Lauren, said that he was lucky to experience love twice.
“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,” he said in an interview to People.
Lauren Hashian is the daughter of John “Sib” Hashian from the classic rock band Boston, and just like her father she has pursued a career in music and is known to have co-penned the song, 'Only You' for hip-hop artist, YaBoi Shad. She also appeared on 'R U That Girl', on UPN in 2005 and was one of the finalists in the competition show.
The 33-year-old singer met Dwayne Johnson in 2006 when he was filming his movie 'The Game Plan'. At that time Dwayne was married to Dany Garcia and their daughter, Simone Alexandra Johnson was six years old. The couple split in 2007, and Dwayne and Lauren started dating; though Dwayne continued to maintain a good friendship with his ex.
In a 2015 interview, Dwayne revealed to Esquire the secret to his blissful family life. "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. “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.”
The couple welcomed their first child, Jasmine Johnson, in December 2015. In December 2017 they announced they were expecting their second child and welcomed daughter number three in the Johnson household, Tiana Gia, in April. The former wrestling star took to Instagram to announce the birth of Tia and praise Tia's mother for all that she means to him.
“It’s hard to express the new level of love, respect and admiration I have for @laurenhashianofficial and all mamas and women out there,” he gushed in a long heartfelt caption.
Skin to skin. Our mana. Blessed and proud to bring another strong girl into this world. Tiana Gia Johnson came into this world like a force of nature and Mama @laurenhashianofficial labored and delivered like a true rockstar. I was raised and surrounded by strong, loving women all my life, but after participating in baby Tia’s delivery, it’s hard to express the new level of love, respect and admiration I have for @laurenhashianofficial and all mamas and women out there. Word to the wise gentlemen, it’s critical to be by your lady’s head when she’s delivering, being as supportive as you can.. holding hands, holding legs, whatever you can do. But, if you really want to understand the single most powerful and primal moment life will ever offer - watch your child being born. Its a life changer and the respect and admiration you have for a woman, will forever be boundless. And to my third and youngest daughter, Tiana Gia - like I did when your two older sisters Simone Alexandra and Jasmine Lia were born, you have my word, I’ll love, protect, guide and make ya laugh for the rest of my life. Your crazy dad has many responsibilities and wears many hats in this big ol’ world, but being your dad will always be the one I’m most proud to wear. Oh and one more thing.. you’re gonna love rollin’ in daddy’s pick up truck. #TianaGiaJohnson🌺 #3rdDaughter #BlessesAndGratefulMan #ImInTROUBLE
Even during the birth of their first child, he had praised the “strength and beauty” of his girlfriend. Around Christmas in 2015 when the couple welcomed their first child together, the 45-year-old actor shared a picture of his adorable newborn resting on his chest and captioned alongside; “I was right there during labor, helping her breathe, every highly intense contraction, every second of pain, right there watching the actual birth, cutting the cord and wiping the tears. Incredible,” he said, adding that “as men, it’s a miracle we should witness because it’ll give you a whole new respect for the strength and beauty of a woman.”
Christmas came early! Within minutes of being born she was laying on daddy's chest. And being a grateful man takes on a whole new meaning... Thank you guys so much for the awesome congratulatory wishes and love you've been sending @laurenhashianofficial and myself. We're extremely grateful. Kinda crazy but in this cool and powerful skin to skin bonding moment with my newborn baby Jasmine, I had just one wish I asked the universe... Give me the strength to be a better man today than I was yesterday. If I can accomplish that, then I'd have a good shot at being a great father. To all you young men out there who will be fathers one day, the goal of "being better" will never steer you wrong. Trust me I've been down this road. Something else that'll never steer you wrong is "walking thru the fire" with your baby's mama. I was right there during labor, helping her breathe, every highly intense contraction, every second of pain, right there watching the actual birth, cutting the cord and wiping the tears. Incredible. *(Now don't get me wrong boys, it wasn't like I was at the end of the table, squatting like a catcher waiting for the fastball to come down the pike..😂 but as men, it's a miracle we should witness because it'll give you a whole new respect for the strength and beauty of a woman). Again, THANK YOU guys so much for all the love during this blessed time. I always say I'm a lucky dude because I've got the greatest fans in the world - and it's true. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your families from ours. #ChristmasCameEarlyToSayHello #WhileSleepOfficiallySaysGoodbye #2xProudPapaSilverback #SheCanDateWhenShes40 💪🏾👊🏾💯
Apart from these, the 'Rampage' star took to the social media platform on Mother's Day to declare his love for Lauren and thank her for all the hard work. He posted an adorable candid picture of Lauren in bed with Jasmine and Tiana and added a long gushing caption: "I’m in constant respect and grateful awe of all the things this incredible mama accomplishes on a daily basis."
He continued: “Happy Mother’s Day to my main squeeze @laurenhashianofficial, holding my little main squeeze, Jasmine Lia, who’s holding my tiniest main squeeze, Tiana Gia.”
Then, turning all his attention to Lauren, he gushed about how she has managed to balance her motherhood, “managing the wonderfully fun, Terrible 2’s with Jazzy” and the “Hi, I need to eat every 3hrs and preferably from your boob (just like daddy)" and at the same time managing her career as a singer while he’s often away filming.
Happy Mother’s Day to my main squeeze @laurenhashianofficial, holding my little main squeeze, Jasmine Lia, who’s holding my tiniest main squeeze, Tiana Gia - both our daughter’s middle names are in honor of their great grandmothers, Lia and Giavanna. I’m in constant respect and grateful awe of all the things this incredible mama accomplishes on a daily basis. Here’s a fun small recap: Having a two and half year old and a newborn attached and clinging to her 24/7. Managing the wonderfully fun, Terrible 2’s with Jazzy. The “Hi, I need to eat every 3hrs and preferably from your boob” (just like daddy;) with Baby Tia. Managing multiple family properties. Managing an ever growing staff of family employees across the country. Picking up the ENTIRE FAMILY, STAFF AND DOG and moving to multiple locations AROUND THE WORLD, throughout the year because of my filming and production schedule. All while continuing to build an amazing career as a music and song writer/producer. As an artist and businessman myself, I recognize how incredibly hard this part is of her job is. She’s a brilliant visionary storyteller and lyrically gifted - all qualities that are hard to tap into when you’re managing this nonstop life of ours. But she does it like a brilliant bad ass. And here’s the best part and the thing I’m most proud of... Lauren does it all with a big genuine smile and is truly, the kindest and sweetest soul you’ll ever meet. People tell me all time after they spend time with her, “Lauren’s the nicest person I have ever met”. I always say, “Yes she is and being nice runs in our family... and so does kicking ass, so don’t ever get on her bad side” Lol. And finally - of all the human beings on this earth she could have as her partner - she chose me. One big, brown, bald, tattooed, very lucky SOB. Happy Mama’s Day Lauren. Take a bow and Queen it up - you’re an amazing mama and amazing mama’s make this world go around. #yvpagm x
And of course, the 'Jumanji' star doesn't just need a special occasion to treat his lady love. On June 10, he uploaded a picture of Lauren breastfeeding their 7-week-old daughter while he fed her pasta.
“I’ll handle this business,” Johnson captioned the Instagram post. “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.”
The couple also demonstrate what a give and take relationship is. On Father's Day, Lauren took to Instagram to wish her partner and called him the "protector." She captioned the video: “I already love you but to see you as a father made me fall in love you even more. Playing and laughing constantly every time you’re together. Leading with your wisdom, guidance, patience, and compassion as they grow up.”
“Always asking yourself how can I be the best father to each of my girls. Doing things to help me be the best mom I can. Allowing our 2-year-old daughter to hold you hostage in her toy room daily, and steal your food from you every time you eat,” the mother of two wrote.
“Being so hands on even though sometimes it seems you work 8 days a week And you still rush home on those days to tuck in your babies. I’m so grateful. We’re so grateful. There is really no other like you,” she continued.
“Endlessly loving… And just to receive their love back makes you the happiest Daddy on the planet. That’s why… Happy Fathers Day to our man, our protector, our heart. Thank you for being the best Dad & partner and I love you! Xoxo,” Hashian concluded.

When in 2016, Johnson was crowned the title of People's Sexiest Man Alive, the only thing he focused on the interview was that Lauren already thought that he was the sexiest man alive. Sharing their ultimate secret of being a happy couple, he said; "First of all, she teases me about everything. Everything. Nothing is off limits in our house. And it’s the beauty of it. And I tease her with everything."
