Dwayne Johnson’s daughter ‘refuses to believe’ he’s Maui from ‘Moana’
Los Angeles : Hollywood star Dwayne Johnson shared that his youngest daughter Tiana refuses to believe that he voiced the character Maui from the animated film ‘Moana’. The ‘Moana’ voice actor shared an adorable clip of himself enjoying a tea party with his four-year-old daughter Tiana, reports people.com. “Man these daddy/daughter/bunny tea parties have a special way of kinda putting life into real perspective,” Johnson, 50, wrote in the Instagram caption. “My ‘why’ becomes even more clear,” he added.
“She just turned 4 and probably won’t remember this, but I sure will.” The ‘Jungle Cruise’ actor also revealed that his youngest daughter “refuses to believe that her daddy is actually MAUI from one of her favorite @disneymovies, MOANA!” “She always says, ‘Daddy, you’re not Maui, you’re The Rock’,” he explained. In addition to Tiana, Johnson is also dad to daughter Jasmine, 6, with wife Lauren Hashian, as well as daughter Simone, 20, whom he shares with his ex-wife Dany Garcia.
In April, the actor celebrated Tiana’s fourth birthday, marking the day with a sweet post shared on Instagram. “Big Easter/Tia’s birthday weekend!!!,” Johnson wrote alongside a series of images of Tiana’s birthday festivities. “She runs around NON-STOP like the little tornado she is and when it comes to eating her birthday cake, it all comes to a hard stop – meaning I have to stop doing what I’m doing when she says…. ‘Daddy feed me’,” the proud dad continued.
Johnson often shares footage on social media of his time at home with his daughters. In March, the wrestler-turned-actor posted an adorable throwback video with Tiana, in which he taught her to tell herself a variety of positive affirmations in honour of International Women’s Day.
While holding Tiana close to his chest, Johnson asked her, “Can you say I’m a pretty girl?” which prompted her to adorably mumble back, “I’m a pretty girl.” “That’s right, and even more importantly than that can you say ‘I’m an awesome girl?'”Johnson then asked, to which Tiana replied with a smile, ‘Awesome girl’. The father of three also taught his little one how to say that she is a “very smart girl.”
