Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Lauren Hashian Could Have Married a Year Ago but Put off the Event
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson revealed why he and his girlfriend, Lauren Hashian, chose to tie the knot only this year.
After numerous questions have been asked about why Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson did not walk his girlfriend down the aisle sooner, the “Rampage” star told ET’s Nancy O’Dell a reasonable answer as to why not.
A POSTPONED WEDDING
“We were going to get married in the spring, and we got pregnant,” Johnson revealed last year. “Lauren felt like, well, you know, mama [doesn’t want] to take pictures being pregnant in a wedding dress.”
Johnson and his girlfriend, Lauren Hashian, were already parents to two-year-old Jasmine and were expecting a second child. While the couple was sure about taking their relationship up a notch, the big when wasn’t answered abruptly.
“We’re just going to wait and not quite sure when, but it’s going to happen,” Johnson added.
RECENT MARRIAGE UPDATE
On Monday, the “Hobbs & Shaw” star revealed their union, which happened in Hawaii, on August 18, after eight years of dating. Johnson shared two photos of the bride and groom before a scenic sunset landscape.
Johnson and Hashian met while the actor filmed “The Game Plan” in 2006, but it wasn’t until the following year that they formally dated. Last month, speculation spread about a secret wedding taking place, which the actor denied.
“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. “I’m like, ‘No. Easy. Don’t rush big daddy.”
Johnson welcomed his second daughter with Hashian on April 23 of last year, who they named Tiana Gia Johnson. Young as she was, Tiana’s father already promised to love, guide, and protect her for as long as he lives.

Skin to skin. Our mana. Blessed and proud to bring another strong girl into this world. Tiana Gia Johnson came into this world like a force of nature and Mama @laurenhashianofficial labored and delivered like a true rockstar. I was raised and surrounded by strong, loving women all my life, but after participating in baby Tia’s delivery, it’s hard to express the new level of love, respect and admiration I have for @laurenhashianofficial and all mamas and women out there. Word to the wise gentlemen, it’s critical to be by your lady’s head when she’s delivering, being as supportive as you can.. holding hands, holding legs, whatever you can do. But, if you really want to understand the single most powerful and primal moment life will ever offer - watch your child being born. Its a life changer and the respect and admiration you have for a woman, will forever be boundless. And to my third and youngest daughter, Tiana Gia - like I did when your two older sisters Simone Alexandra and Jasmine Lia were born, you have my word, I’ll love, protect, guide and make ya laugh for the rest of my life. Your crazy dad has many responsibilities and wears many hats in this big ol’ world, but being your dad will always be the one I’m most proud to wear. Oh and one more thing.. you’re gonna love rollin’ in daddy’s pick up truck. #TianaGiaJohnson🌺 #3rdDaughter #BlessesAndGratefulMan #ImInTROUBLE
In a lengthy and emotional post, the actor shared his joy and shared his gratefulness to be “raised and surrounded by strong, loving women.” He also left words of advice for men who have special ladies in their lives.
