A little less than two months ago, The Rock’s girlfriend Lauren Hashian gave birth to their second daughter Tiana “Tia” Gia Johnson. If I had to guess what kind of help The Rock was being around the house, I might guess he’s been good at crushing Diaper Genie sausages into ultra-compact 2″ diaper discs, or saving a little energy by keeping the baby’s motorized swing in a state of perpetual motion simply by exhaling near it. As it turns out, The Rock is way more helpful than that. Yesterday, The Rock posted a picture on Instagram of himself feeding Lauren a bowl of food while their baby had a meal of her own at Chez Boob. The Rock wrote:
“I’ll handle this business. 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. Just landed and good to get all my girl’s settled in. Now, I gotta go satisfy my own appetite…Iron Paradise, here I come. #EveryoneGetsFed #DaddysGottaGoToWork #ChivalryIsToughOnTheKnees”
If the internet isn’t hissing at a celebrity’s parenting displays on Instagram, then they’re usually applauding. And The Rock’s chivalrous daddy dinner service got him the internet equivalent of a standing ovation. Some may roll their eyes and say that’s literally the least The Rock could do, but not me. We know how The Rock gets around food. He deserves a medal for the restraint he showed by not immediately wolfing it down, fork and all.
