Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson would like to get some shut-eye before he welcomes his second child with girlfriend Lauren Hashian, but there’s just one problem: With Hashian due on April 25, the 45-year-old dad is a bundle of nerves.
“When the baby mama is sleeping, any movement in the middle of the night, any kind of just turning over, I’m like, ‘Hey, are you OK?’ Constantly,” Johnson told Us Weekly at the Wednesday, April 4, premiere of his sci-fi action movie Rampage in Los Angeles. “It’s an exciting time.”
The former wrestler added that he’s been spoiling Hashian in simple ways. “I’m being very flexible and nimble,” he told Us. “‘Are you OK honey? What do you need?’”
While Hashian, 33, was home resting with the couple’s daughter Jasmine, 3, Johnson squeezed in quality time on the red carpet with his eldest, 16-year-old Simone. (Johnson and Simone’s mom, CEO Dany Garcia, ended their marriage in 2007, but they remain close and she manages all of his enterprises.)
Johnson revealed during his Tuesday, April 3, appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that baby No. 3 will most likely be born within the next two weeks. The action star also explained that he’s “on code Red, high alert.”
But the actor, who is in the middle of promoting Rampage, will fly to Shanghai on Friday.
Even Kimmel was in disbelief, declaring: “You can’t go to Shanghai!”
“I have got to go, but we have an understanding,” Johnson replied. “As of now the doctor said we should be OK. The baby would be born when it’s due, which is April 25. So, we’ll see. We’re taking a chance here. We’re taking a shot. I have to go Shanghai, then I have to go to London for Rampage.”
Rampage opens in theaters on April 13.
