Taking to the photo-sharing app, The Rock treated his followers to the first photo of his baby girl and it's totally adorable.

In his picture, Dwayne can be seen lying down with little Jasmine on his chest all wrapped up. Alongside his post, he paid a lengthy tribute to his newborn and his daddy duties, writing: "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.

He added: "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."

Opening up about Jasmine's birth, he said: "I was right there during labour, 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."


Jasmine is Dwayne's first child with his long term girlfriend Lauren Hashian. They first announced they were expecting a child together back in September.
