Dwayne Johnson has become a household name for more reasons than one. He is a WWE legend, a much-loved actor, and was even interested in becoming a Presidential candidate sometime in the future! However, he holds another “profession” above it all – being a father.
Yes, all the achievements Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has had in his extensive career are absolutely insignificant when it comes to being there for his daughters. He has said it loud and clear; if a job requires him to put his family on the back foot, then he simply doesn’t want to be a part of it. Even if it is possibly running the country from The White House!
Dwayne Johnson is Sticking with his Family
Dwayne Johnson recently shared an interview on his Instagram where he talked about the possibility of him ever running for President. In the post, he left a heartfelt message in the caption for all the fathers out there. He addressed the men watching his video that they would agree that out of all the roles men play in their lives, being a dad tops the list.
“I know a lot of you men out there understand me when I say, of all the roles us men play in our daily hustle and grind of life – my favourite one of all is ‘dad.’”
Johnson continued that he knew what it was like working his dream job as a pro wrestler. However, he was apologetic for the time he lost with his firstborn child due to the job. The Black Adam actor swears an oath that he wouldn’t be seen doing business ever again which would put a strain on his family time.
Dwayne Johnson Says No to Presidency
Previously, a survey of thirty thousand people conducted by Pipslay revealed that 46% of the people would be willing to vote for Johnson if he ever wishes to run for President. He addressed the survey stating that while he wasn’t sure that the Founding Fathers would have envisioned a “six-four, bald, tattooed, half-Black, half-Samoan, tequila drinkin, pick up truck driving, fanny pack wearing guy” becoming a President, he would still be honored to do if the chance ever comes.
However, in the above-mentioned interview with CBS Sunday Morning, The Rock revealed that he has changed his mind. When asked if running for the President was off the table now, the WWE legend-turned-actor replied in an affirmative. While he loves the country and the people in it, he also loves being a father. Sure there might be things that Johnson loves doing, but being there for his daughters is his number one priority, especially during the critical time of their lives when they are growing up.
“I love our country and everyone in it. I also love being a daddy. And that’s the most important thing to be is being a daddy number one. Especially during this time, this critical time in my daughters’ lives. I know what it’s like to be on the road and be so busy that I was absent for a lot of years. My first daughter’s growing up in this critical age at this critical time in her life and that’s what the presidency will do.”
A glimpse into what Johnson is like as a father can be very easily seen on his social media where he has time and again shared extremely cute videos of him spending time with his daughters. While sometimes it is building lego sets with his daughter (and failing to do so), other times it’s having a lavish tea party. The bond is certainly oh-so-adorable!
