Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is a married man again. The actor secretly married his longtime girlfriend Lauren Hashian and shared photos from the wedding ceremony.
It’s difficult to enjoy privacy when you’re a celebrity, but it seems Dwayne and Lauren went the extra mile to make sure there was no hint of their wedding plans before the big day.
The “Hobbs & Shaw” star shocked social media users a few hours ago when he posted two photos from him and Lauren’s nuptials with the caption:
August 18th, 2019.
In one of the pictures, the newlyweds posed against an idyllic backdrop of the Hawaiian clouds and ocean, wearing some of the brightest smiles we’ve ever seen.
Still To Come: "I just refer to her as my wife all the time. So a lot of people are like, 'Oh, did you get married?'" ~ Dwayne Johnson
Dwayne, 47, looked dapper in a slightly unbuttoned white shirt and matching pants while his 34-year-old bride wore a white sleeveless lace dress with a plunging neckline and long train. In a second photo, the newlyweds shared a kiss by the edge of the water.
Well-wishers and celebrity friends of the new couple trooped to the comment section with kind words.
“Congrats man,” wrote Dwayne’s “Jumanji” co-star Kevin Hart while another cast member Nick Jonas echoed: “Congrats brother.”
Dwayne and Lauren first met in 2006 and started dating a year later after the former wrestler divorced his first wife, film producer Dany Garcia. Dwayne and Dany were married for ten years and now co-parent their daughter, Simone, 18.
Back in 2012, the “Rampage” star opened up to PEOPLE about falling in love again and described himself as “lucky.”
“I was so fortunate to have fallen in love once. To fall in love again? That’s a hard thing to do twice in the position I’m in. I’m one lucky son of a [expletive].”
In July 2018, however, Dwayne told "Entertainment Tonight" that he was not in a hurry to marry his singer/music producer beau.
"I just refer to her as my wife all the time. So a lot of people are like, 'Oh, did you get married?'" he said at the time. "I'm like, 'No. Easy. Don't rush big daddy.'"
Guess Dwayne and Lauren finally decided to take the big step. Congratulations to the new couple!
