As far as celebrity dads go, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is basically killing it in every way. In a recent Instagram post, the 47-year-old actor revealed the brilliant prank his daughter Jasmine pulls on him – and the sweet reason he’s perfectly okay with it.
The photo shows The Rock cradling his three-year-old on his lap while pouring from a water bottle. In the caption, he describes the “prank” Jasmine is obsessed with pulling on her old man. “I know how this dance goes with my lil’ Jazzy who clings to me like a spider monkey 24/7,” he begins. He then describes how Jasmine asks for water and when he pours her some, she dumps it on a towel and laughs. The Rock feigns anger, then the two break out in laughter.
“Repeat until there’s no more water,” the actor says. “Then she runs off and I’m left with an empty water bottle. One of the many reasons I cherish 😂🙏🏾🖤 my off days.”
Obviously, this isn’t an Ashton Kutcher-level prank, but in the eyes of a toddler, it probably is nothing short of pure genius. Regardless, it’s clear that Johnson loves spending time with is kids and has a great sense of humor – which is basically all anyone needs in a dad.
Besides, all evidence points to the fact that (harmless) pranks are key to a healthy father-daughter relationship. Kevin Hart recently shared the prank war that he and his daughters got into on Father’s Day, and other celebrity dads commended Jasmine on her shenanigans. Avengers: Endgame star Josh Brolin commented on The Rock’s post: “Fantastic”, while Ryan Reynolds left several raised-hands emojis.
Agreed on all fronts.

I know how this dance goes with my lil’ Jazzy who clings to me like a spider monkey 24/7 🐒 Daddy, I’m thirsty, can I have some of your water? Of course you can baby. I pour it, she takes the water, looks at me and slowly dumps it on the towel. I look angry. She smiles. I smile. She laughs hard. I laugh harder. She laughs even harder. Repeat until there’s no more water. Then she runs off and I’m left with an empty water bottle. One of the many reasons I cherish 😂🙏🏾🖤 my off days.
