It's no secret that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is the hardest working man in Hollywood; he wakes up at 4:30 every morning to go to the gym for three hours and somehow has his fingers in twenty different projects at once. But we've all seen rom coms and "Mad Men" and so many other stories about baller, hard-working career leaders — so that has to mean his personal life is in shambles, right? Nobody can truly have it all, right??? 

Wrong. Not only is Johnson the perfect Hollywood superstar, he's also the perfect dad to his daughter, Jasmine, as evidenced by how adorable and caring and hilarious he is with her on his Instagram. And as much as it is inspiring and motivating, it's also a real bummer. If and when I have kids, how am I going to be able to live up to The Rock's impossible example? He's just too good!

Let's break down all the moments so far that made even childless people feel like they probably weren't good enough parents: 


When he insisted on being right there in the room for his daughter's birth.

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... Thank you guys so much for the awesome congratulatory wishes and love you've been sending @laurenhashianofficial and myself. We're extremely grateful. Kinda crazy but in this cool and powerful skin to skin bonding moment with my newborn baby Jasmine, I had just one wish I asked the universe... Give me the strength to be a better man today than I was yesterday. If I can accomplish that, then I'd have a good shot at being a great father. To all you young men out there who will be fathers one day, the goal of "being better" will never steer you wrong. Trust me I've been down this road. Something else that'll never steer you wrong is "walking thru the fire" with your baby's mama. I was right there during labor, helping her breathe, every highly intense contraction, every second of pain, right there watching the actual birth, cutting the cord and wiping the tears. Incredible. *(Now don't get me wrong boys, it wasn't like I was at the end of the table, squatting like a catcher waiting for the fastball to come down the pike..???? but as men, it's a miracle we should witness because it'll give you a whole new respect for the strength and beauty of a woman). Again, THANK YOU guys so much for all the love during this blessed time. I always say I'm a lucky dude because I've got the greatest fans in the world - and it's true. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your families from ours. #ChristmasCameEarlyToSayHello #WhileSleepOfficiallySaysGoodbye #2xProudPapaSilverback #SheCanDateWhenShes40 ????????????????????

If women have to actually pass the baby, men should have to watch it. The Rock knows what's up.

Look at that costume! This should be terrifying to a child. It is only through the sheer force of The Rock's magnetic charm and charisma that it is heartwarming instead.
