    Writing in the caption, the Fast and Furious star said: ‘Our Jasmine Lia would like to make a big announcement – IT’S A GIRL! 🌺 @laurenhashianofficial and I are boundlessly grateful for this blessing as this spring we’ll welcome our second baby.

    Shortly after announcing the news on social media, the couple made a red carpet appearance for the premiere of his new film, Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle, where Lauren showed off her baby bump.

    This will be the pair’s second child together, after welcoming Jasmine in 2015.

    The Rock is also dad to 16-year-old Simone from his marriage to Dany Garcia, whom he divorced in 2007.

    ‘When I held her when she was born, I held her in these two hands, and I said to her, “I will always, always take care of you. For the rest of your life, you are safe.”‘
