Actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and his pregnant girlfriend Lauren Hashian have made their first public appearance after announcing that they’re expecting a second baby girl.

The couple appeared at the red carpet premiere of Johnson’s new film, “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Monday, Dec. 11. The couple posed for photographs, with Johnson wrapping his arms around Hashian to gently touch her baby bump.

The singer-songwriter wore an elegant short-sleeved red velvet dress with a thigh-high slit, while the former professional wrestler rocked a maroon suit.

The appearance of the expecting couple came just hours after Johnson announced the good news to the public. The actor shared the news on social media with the help of their first child, Jasmine Lia. On his Instagram account, Johnson posted a photo of the child sitting under a giant Christmas tree where an announcement can be seen.

“It’s a girl!” the sign said. “Can’t wait to be a big sister and finally be the boss!”

Johnson said that he and Hashian are “boundlessly grateful for this blessing as this spring we’ll welcome our second baby. Plus, Jazzy is excited to boss around and protect her lil’ sis.”

“And once again, big daddy is completely surrounded by beautiful estrogen and loving, powerful female mana,” The Rock continued. “All girls. One dude. And a boy dog. I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

The 45-year-old actor expounded on the thought during his appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Monday.

“The crazy thing is, I was raised by women, and still to this day, I’m totally and completely, 100 percent surrounded by only women!” he said. “And I love it.”

The forthcoming baby will be Johnson’s third daughter. He is also father to 16-year-old Simone Alexander, his daughter with ex-wife Dany Garcia.
