Johnson, 47, shared a video of his daughter Tianna Gia, 1, where he encouraged her to repeat some self-affirming sentences. While holding her in his arms, the “Jumanji” star said: "Can you say I'm a pretty girl?"

The cute little girl mumbles through the phrase before her father asks her "Even more importantly than that, can you say I'm an awesome girl.” Johnson asks the toddler to say: “I'm a smart girl,” and “I'm a very smart girl," which she also repeats in her cute little voice.

Tianna repeats affirming messages

The “Fast & Furious” star then encourages her to repeat: "I can do anything," which she mumbles through again. His last phrase wasn’t said before he jokingly looked around and asked: “Where is your mother?”

The world will hear from you one day

Noticing that his wife, Lauren Hashian, wasn’t around, he tells little Tianna: "And really the most important thing... [say] daddy's the best!" The toddler quickly shouts “Mother!” to show who she truly believes if the best.

Being a father to girl children

She recently signed her first contract with WWE to become one of their newest recruits. Last July, Johnson made an appearance on “Good Morning America” where he opened up about being a father to just daughters. 

He confessed, at the time, “Having all daughters, it’s the greatest blessing I’ve ever had.”
