Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is loved by all, men, women and children. Here are Explica's top 7 reasons why, though we know there are tons:

 

1. He encourages other fathers to be there for their daughters and wives: On Instagram, Johnson said, "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."

 

2. The men his daughters will date in the far future will have to answer to The Rock: As a dad of three girls, he knows there will come a time when his daughters will bring home suitors. The actor said, "Just promise me I get one hour of 'special alone time' with any boy you decide to bring home in the far FAR future."

 

Think about that guys.

 

3. He dresses as their favorite characters: Johnson posted a video dressed as Pikachu and ran around playing with his daughter. The actor knows committing to a character is key.

 

"Well, Pikachu didn't account for the fact that now Jazzy RUNS and for 2hrs straight she wants to play her new favorite game, "I run away and you chase me Pikachu. And you're not allowed to take a break until I go night night," he explained on social media.

Your crazy dad has many responsibilities and wears many hats in this big ol world, but being your dad will always be the one Im most proud to wear.

4. He does his share of the work at home: Diaper changing is no problem for this tough guy. Johnson doesn't mind changing diapers, and he shared his thoughts in a post on Instagram, writing, "Regardless of where we're at.. when #2 happens with my baby girl.. I'm the #1 man for the job."

 

5. He brings his daughters to work: Well, kind of work. Johnson always brings his eldest daughter Simone to his premieres and events. She was even an ambassador for the Golden Globe Awards.

6. He teaches his daughters about hard work: Johnson starts teaching them about hard work at a young age. He is always talking about the bigs goals he has for his young girls, saying, "Baby girl when you grow up, you get out there and dent the universe thru hard work and sweat. And always make sure you do it in a positive way with class, dignity and respect."

 

7. He respects all the women in his life: The Rock loves all the strong women in his life. He posted, "Not a day goes by where I don't think about the women in my life, shake my head and consider myself the luckiest SOB on earth. I come from a family of beautiful, strong, diverse and intelligent women."

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 Tias delivery, its 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, its critical to be by your ladys head when shes 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, Ill 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 Im most proud to wear. Oh and one more thing.. youre gonna love rollin in daddys pick up truck. #TianaGiaJohnson #3rdDaughter #BlessesAndGratefulMan #ImInTROUBLE
