Dwayne Johnson Gushes About Daughter Simone Signing with WWE: 'It Blows My Mind'

Dwayne Johnson is one proud dad!

During a virtual appearance on The Tonight Showing Starring Jimmy Fallon, the 48-year-old actor gushed about his 18-year-old daughter Simone signing with the WWE.

“She signed her contract with the WWE and you know it blows my mind,” Dwayne said. “First of all, what an honor that my daughter wants to follow in my footsteps but more importantly, follow in my footsteps sounds cliché, but she actually wants to create and blaze her own path, which is so important.”

Dwayne shares Simone with ex-wife Dany Garcia. Simone officially signed with the WWE back in February. Dwayne revealed that Simone is “the youngest signee in the history of the company.”

“She’s 18 now, at 16 she was working her ass off quietly under the radar, in the ring getting thrown around, you know all the bumps and bruises that go with pro wrestling,” Dwayne said. “But she hung in there, and I’m very very proud of her.”

Dwayne wrestled for the WWE for eight years before transitioning into acting.
