13 moments in pictures that show actor Dwayne Johnson The Rock and his wife Lauren Hashian are the world’s hottest couple – a timeline of their relationship.
After years of being one of the leading actors in Hollywood, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has had his eye for one lady, his wife, Lauren Hashian.
The Rock counts himself lucky to have found love following his divorce. “I was so fortunate to have fallen in love once,” the Hollywood star told PEOPLE in 2012. “To fall in love again? That’s a hard thing to do twice in the position I’m in. I’m one lucky son of a b*tch.” So, just who won the heart of the beloved actor?
Their relationship started on the low but the couple in recent years has been outspoken about their love and adoration for each other, often sharing intimate looks at their lives on social media.
In July 2019, the Baywatch actor praised the Massachusetts native in a heartfelt Instagram post while promoting his film Hobbs & Shaw.
“I set the tone and tempo, but she’ll always be the life anchor who makes this whole thing happen and shine,” Johnson wrote alongside a video of the pair. “Pleasure to rock the @hobbsandshaw world premiere w/ my much better half & beautiful smoke show @laurenhashianofficial. The best part about this night is by 11 pm, we’re already at home, in our sweatpants and sippin’ on tequila. My kinda night and my kinda gal 😉🥃 The strength & coolness of a woman come in many many different forms”.
Prior to tying the knot in August 2019, the couple welcomed their first child, daughter Jasmine, in 2015, and a baby girl, Tiana, in 2018. Johnson is also the dad of Simone, whom he shares with ex-wife Dany Garcia who is a film producer. The former WWE wrestler and his ex-wife were married from 1997 to 2007 and remain on good terms, even working together on movies post-split.
But come to think of it, Dwayne Johnson is surrounded by ladies in his family – from his wives to his three daughters. Speaking with Extra in July 2019, Johnson revealed “It’s just the, I have a house full of just strong, badass women. … It’s terrifying, but it’s awesome.”
He added: “I grew up an only child. My dad was tough. He kicked my ass, so there was a lot of testosterone growing up, so there is this balance, having all this estrogenic energy, then also me having the opportunity to infuse ‘father’ and hopefully setting a standard of what a man should be in [my daughter’s] lives.”
Hashian isn’t an actor, but she and her husband have still found ways to work together. In July 2021, the pair collaborated on a song she wrote for an Olympics commercial advertising the beverage ZOA Energy.
“It’s a dream to team up with my man,” the musician wrote via Instagram at the time, alongside a video of the ad.
After the commercial debuted, the Young Rock executive producer sang his wife’s praises on social media, saying that he was “personally proud” of her achievements. “What an incredibly gratifying moment this is,” he added. “Listen to Lauren sing this song ~ there’s some real soul and mana in these powerful words.”

While her husband is in the spotlight, Hashian loves “keeping a low-key profile and holding onto privacy and normalcy.” She explained, “Especially for [daughter] Jasmine, I don’t want to lose that.

It just gives us balance, and makes you appreciate privacy and ‘normal’ life even more.”

Because you’re always aiming to grow, get better, gain wisdom from every situation, and genuinely learn from them. You never stop those things. You inspire me.

“You know, we get snippy with each other, we argue,” Johnson noted. “I’ve got to be honest with you, when this thing first started, the first two weeks of quarantine for me, I was really wobbly at times, and I was trying to get my sh*t together and trying to understand it because I was also trying to think 10 steps ahead, what does the future look like, what does the new normal look like when I go back? Work, school, my household. There’s a lot of sh*t that we’re all thinking about; husbands, wives, you name it, we’re all thinking about it.”
