Christmas definitely came early for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as he and girlfriend Lauren Hashian welcomed a baby girl on Dec. 16. And on Sunday, he shared one of her first photos with the world on Instagram and revealed her name: Jasmine. Next to the beautiful black-and-white close-up photo of tiny little Jasmine laying on his tattoo-adorned chest, the proud papa wrote a beautiful message to his new little girl.

"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. 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." (Read the full message in the post below).

The new arrival is the couple's first child together; Johnson is also a father to 14-year-old Simone from his previous marriage to Dany Garcia.
