From spinning the whole Dwanta Claus fantasy to tricking her daughter into believing that he is a dinosaur, Dwayne Rock Johnson is certainly a typical dad. On Wednesday, the 48-year-old actor took to Instagram to share two pictures from one of his dad pranks that he played on his youngest daughter, Tiana Gia Johnson.
The post showed the two-year-old daughter of the actor looking at his calloused hands. The caption read that she was deeply fascinated with his callouses and wondered how they felt and what they meant. The toddler’s confusion prompted Rock’s typical dad mind to spin a story that the innocent child would most likely believe. The Rock explained the reason for his callouses and told Tiana that it means that he is actually a dinosaur who is 250 million years old. The actor even shared the priceless reaction of his daughter as she heard this and was trying to process his father’s dinosaur phase.
The post has garnered over 3,586,611 likes since it was shared. Fans and celebrities are leaving their comments to the hilarious Instagram post. While some loved the Rock’s post, others shared teary eyed laughing emojis to the prank. For some, the popping veins on the actor’s hand stood out as one user commented, “Those veins are nurses’ best friend." Another fan commented, “One paper cut and you are done for. Please be careful.” Another comment read, “Big flex with the resting vascularity.”
Meanwhile one of the fans shared a similar incident as he commented, “My niece does the same thing, poking at mine and trying to pick them off like they arent part of my hand (sic)." Justifying little Tiana’s reaction, one comment read, “To be fair, learning that Dad’s a dinosaur is a lot to process."
This is not the first time Dwayne has pranked his daughters. In an Instagram post from 2017 Christmas, the actor was seen entering his five year old daughter Jasmine Johnson’s room claiming that he is Dwanta Claus. The actor modified Santa Claus to go with his name and asked his daughter if she wants any gifts. However, Jasmine looked like she had better things to do as she shut the door and went back to painting.
On the work front, the actor will be next seen in a bunch of projects including Red Notice with Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot. He will also be seen in and as the DC anti-hero Black Adam.
