Dwayne Johnson has joked that he will name his third child after comedian Kevin Hart, after revealing his partner is expecting.
The 45-year-old actor recently announced his partner Lauren Hashian — with whom he has a 23-month-old daughter, Jasmine — is pregnant with their second daughter, and the Moana star has teased that out of “honor and respect” for his Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle co-star and “bestie” the couple may give their baby the moniker “Kevina.”
Speaking about the exciting news to “Entertainment Tonight,” the former professional wrestler who was known as The Rock, said: “I’m very, very blessed.”
Hart, 38, added: “Word on the street, the name is Kevina. .. Kevina Johnson.”
To which Johnson — who also has 16-year-old daughter Simone with his ex-wife Dany Garcia — replied: “I talked to Lauren — we may name her Kevina … out of the honor and respect I have for my bestie here.”
The Central Intelligence star publicly declared he was expanding his family on Monday, Dec. 11, 2017, as he posted a photograph of his youngest child sitting underneath a Christmas tree while holding a piece of paper above her.
The note read: “It’s a girl! Can’t wait to be a big sister and finally be the boss!”
And the post, which was shared on Dwayne’s Instagram account, was captioned: “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.
“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. All girls. Only dude. I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
