The Rock shares first image of his newborn: Jasmine

DWAYNE 'The Rock' Johnson has shared the first picture of his newborn daughter, Jasmine.

The former professional wrestler and his long-term girlfriend Lauren Hashian welcomed their new baby last week and the proud dad took to Instagram to share a sweet snap of Jasmine lying on his chest.

He wrote: "Christmas came early! Within minutes of being born she was laying on daddy's chest. And being a grateful man takes on a whole new meaning...Thank you guys so much for the awesome congratulatory wishes and love you've been sending @laurenhashianofficial and myself. We're extremely grateful."

"Kinda crazy but in this cool and powerful skin to skin bonding moment with my newborn baby Jasmine, I had just one wish I asked the universe... Give me the strength to be a better man today than I was yesterday. If I can accomplish that, then I'd have a good shot at being a great father (sic)."

Dwayne is already father to 14-year-old daughter Simone but this is his first child with Lauren.

The couple announced the pregnancy news in September, with Dwayne revealing last month they were expecting a girl.

He posted a picture of himself cradling Lauren's baby bump, and captioned the image: "I was raised by and live with amazing and strong women, so the universe felt we needed one more... IT'S A BABY GIRL!! THANK YOU guys so much for the awesome support and love you've sent @laurenhashianofficial and myself from around the world. We're so grateful for this blessing and thrilled to share the news with y'all. (sic)"
