A proud Dwayne Johnson shared the first photo of his newborn daughter, Jasmine, in a heartfelt Instagram post over the weekend.

"Christmas came early! Within minutes of being born she was laying on daddy's chest. And being a grateful man takes on a whole new meaning," Johnson wrote.

The former wrestler expressed his gratitude to his fans and praised his girlfriend, Lauren Hashian, who gave birth on December 16.

"It's a miracle we should witness because it'll give you a whole new respect for the strength and beauty of a woman," he said on the post.

Johnson also wrote that he was present during labor, watching his daughter being born and helped cut the umbilical cord.

The new parents first announced their pregnancy news on an Instagram post in November.

Jasmine is Johnson's second child. He has a 14-year-old daughter, Simone, with his ex-wife Dany Garcia.
