You don't need many reasons to fall in love with The Rock. He's, um, easy on the eyes and has a voice that can make you melt out of your knickers. But did you know Dwayne Johnson has a soft side, particularly with the ladies in his life? Watching The Rock playing with his 8-month-old daughter, Jasmine, will give you all the feels for so many reasons.
As great as it is to see baby Jas smacking her papa in the head, it's the song, Justin Young's "O' Tiare," playing in the background -- and its significance -- that makes this father-daughter moment truly perfect.
Finally my big head is used for more than just a place to hang my hat.ðï¿½ï¿½ï¿½ The joys of being home w/ my ohana and playin' one of our fav games - slap daddy's head 'til I can see his big scary face. Song playing in the background is "O Tiare" (Justin Young). A song I started singing to her every day since she was one week old. Samoan lyrics are beautiful, "Ia alofa le Atua, ma tausi ia te 'oe..." which translates to "may God take loving care of you". When Jasmine learns to talk, I'm sure she'll ask me to please stop singingðï¿½ï¿½ï¿½. I must now go do something very manly and bad ass to counterbalance this post. #Ohana #Aiga #Grateful #SlapDaddysHeadCauseItsABigToy
As The Rock mentions on Instagram:
... I started singing ["O' Tiare"] to [Jasmine] every day since she was one week old. Samoan lyrics are beautiful, 'Ia alofa le Atua, ma tausi ia te 'oe...' which translates to 'May God take loving care of you.'
Aww. How sweet!!

I will just about drool over anything related to The Rock, but this is really, really precious. I can only imagine how much little Jasmine loves hearing her daddy sing such a beautiful song to her each and every day.
(It's probably really comfy in his biceps, too!)
It's a truly wonderful way to bond with baby, and I also love how The Rock is finding different ways to incorporate his Samoan heritage into parenting. The lyrics to "O' Tiare" are not only beautiful to hear, but have an even more amazing message that's warm and uplifting as well.
Great job, Dad!
