Video of the day: Dwayne Johnson gets emotional talking about daughter Simone

Dwayne Johnson might look intimidating, but the wrestler-turned-actor is just like most dads – a total softie when it comes to his relationship with his daughter. The Furious 7 star opened up about life, love and fatherhood during a revealing interview on Oprah Winfrey’s Master Class. “I realized that being a father is the greatest job I’ve ever had and the greatest job I will ever have,” says Dwayne, who welcomed his daughter, Simone, in 2001. “When I held her when she was born, I said to her, ‘I will always take care of you. For the rest of your life, you are safe.’” In the video, the actor also reveals his gratitude for finding the love of his life, Lauren, with whom he is expecting a baby girl. “I wake up every day so grateful and so thankful that you have someone like that. Someone you can walk through this world with,” he says. Watch the emotional video below to find out the greatest lesson the leading man has learned and the words spoken by his daughter that brought him to tears.
