Actor Dwayne Johnson married his partner of 12 years on August 18, 2019 in a private ceremony in Hawaii. The couple initally shared only a picture of the two of them, but now a new bunch of photos show how their daughters were the real stars at the wedding.
Actor Dwayne 'the Rock' Johnson, 47, recently married his long-time partner Lauren Hashian, 34, in Hawaii and their two daughters were among those present for the private ceremony. He and his wife dressed in white on their special day on August 18. Initially, the couple had shared only two photos saying, "We do. August 18th, 2019. Hawaii. Pōmaikaʻi (blessed)."
However, the new adorable photos, taken by photographer Jon Brandon Cruz, shared on their social media show that the stars of the show were his two daughters, Jasmine Lia, 3, and Tiana Gia, 16-months-old.
In one photo, the happy family of four, all in white framed against an azure background, can be seen. The big man of the family kisses his new wife while the couple holds their two little ones close to them. The caption shared by Lauren says "cloud nine" in emoji.
In another photo, Jasmine, who was a flower girl, throws flowers towards the camera, while daddy Dwayne can be seen grinning ear-to-ear while he holds on to the basket of flowers. According to People magazine, he responded to the photo shared by Lauren with “My ❤️.”
In another photo, the youngest daughter, Tiana Gia, who was also a flower girl, was guided by her two grandmothers on her both sides down the aisle with a flower basket. She smiles broadly while walking towards her mother, not pictured in the photo.
In another photo, Dwayne's mother Ata, Lauren's mother Suzanne, Jasmine, and another woman can be seen doing steps from the traditional Hula dance.
Almost a week after the wedding, the actor opened up about the day and told Access, “I feel great. It was a beautiful ceremony and it was phenomenal.” He also added that it was a "very quiet" wedding. “We kept it under wraps,” he added. “Private, which is perfect.”
Johnson was promoting his next film Jungle Cruise with Emily Blunt when he spoke about the wedding. Blunt said that his wedding was so private that the invite came too late for her to attend.
The photos of the couple in idyllic Hawaii seemed like a fairytale wedding, where they brought their dream of formalizing their vows to each other alive. The couple shares a committed relationship, and the photos say it all.
The couple wanted to get married last year but they got pregnant with Tiana and they wanted to wait until after her birth to legalize their strong bond. They have been together since 2007, a few months after his first marriage fell through. They have been supportive of each other through the years and brushed aside questions of choosing to not get married for so long.
They were joined by close family and friends at the intimate event, which was conducted at a venue right by the sea.
He also revealed in his interview with Access that his wife was waiting for him to finish with work before they embarked on their honeymoon. “She’s waiting, and I fly back to her now and we are going to have a honeymoon,” he shared. “It’s going to be great, it’s going to be fantastic.”
