Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson may be one of the strongest men in Hollywood, but the Rampage actor has a soft spot when it comes to his kids — and he isn’t afraid to admit it.

The 46-year-old semi-retired professional wrestler got emotional on Christmas when he saw his 3-year-old daughter Jasmine’s eyes light up when she realized that Santa had come, comparing it to “kinda like heaven, I guess.”

Kinda like heaven I guess. This moment of carrying Jazzy downstairs as she sees her toys for the first time that Santa left her is truly one of my greatest joys. When I was a kid I saw Willy Wonka (one of my all time favs) and I’ll never forget that feeling when I saw the kids faces of awe when they walked into the Chocolate Factory for the first time. Now years later, I (very selfishly) try and create that feeling with children and people anytime I can. As cool as I’m being in this vid, on the inside I’ll always be one of those awestruck kids from Willy Wonka. You know, the little brown, buck toothed boy with an afro who had features so soft people often mistook him for being a little girl. True story, but I digress and clearly need therapy. Simply put, I live for movements like this and I’m one lucky SOB to make them happen. Merry Christmas everyone and sending a ton of Dwanta Claus luv your way. Wait til’ Jazzy see’s the surprise carousel that’s waiting in the backyard 😈🎅🏾❤️ #DaddyLuv #DwantaNeedsTherapy

Johnson posted a sweet video of the curly-haired little girl squealing alongside a heartfelt caption. “This moment of carrying Jazzy downstairs as she sees her toys for the first time that Santa left her is truly one of my greatest joys,” he wrote. “When I was a kid I saw Willy Wonka (one of my all time favs) and I’ll never forget that feeling when I saw the kids faces of awe when they walked into the Chocolate Factory for the first time.”

The California native continued: “Now years later, I (very selfishly) try and create that feeling with children and people anytime I can. As cool as I’m being in this vid, on the inside I’ll always be one of those awestruck kids from Willy Wonka. You know, the little brown, buck toothed boy with an afro who had features so soft people often mistook him for being a little girl.”

Johnson — who shares Jasmine and 8-month-old daughter Tiana with girlfriend Lauren Hashian — added, “simply put, I live for [moments] like this and I’m one lucky SOB to make them happen.” (He also shares 17-year-old daughter Simone with ex-wife Dany Garcia.)

The Baywatch actor, who jokingly referred to himself as “Dwanta Claus,” concluded his post, “wait til’ Jazzy see’s the surprise carousel that’s waiting in the backyard” with the hashtag, “#DwantaNeedsTherapy.”
