Ever since Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson announced he and long-time girlfriend Lauren Hashian were expecting a baby, the star has been abuzz with enthusiasm and anticipation. Now, little Jasmine has joined the world, and Johnson couldn't be prouder of his tiny pebble.

In an Instagram post on Sunday, the 43-year-old thanked fans for their kind wishes, sharing that Jasmine made him want to be "a better man today than I was yesterday," and continued with a bit of advice for the males of the world.

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. 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..πŸ˜‚ 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 πŸ‘ŠπŸΎπŸ’―

The Furious 7 star finished off the wise caption with a few humorous hashtags: "#ChristmasCameEarlyToSayHello #WhileSleepOfficiallySaysGoodbye #2xProudPapaSilverback #SheCanDateWhenShes40"

Meanwhile, mom Lauren Hashian is said to be doing well and experiencing a life that's "busy in the best ways."
