When a kid holds up a banana and says “ring ring,” you answer the damn banana. When they tell you they made pizza and then hold out their empty hands, you eat that imaginary pizza like it’s the best air slice you’ve ever inhaled. Being a parent is all about being fully present in the moment, stretching your comfort zone, and being open to things you never imagined. Dwayne Johnson frequently shares his adorable adventures as a girl dad, jumping in feet-first and embracing every second.
The Rock has an almost unbelievable work ethic, regularly pushing his physical limits to prepare for his next big role. Of course, this sort of training comes at a price. The soreness, the dietary changes, and of course, the calluses. Fortunately, the Brahma Bull has a full team of supporters behind him to help out when things (or palms) get rough.
Leading the way in Johnson’s training recovery is his daughter, 5-year-old Jasmine. In a video The Rock recently shared on Instagram, Jasmine has a big job in front of her – tending to her dad’s callused hands.
“Her ‘wipe wipe blow’ just warmed my cold black heart,” Johnson captioned the video. “My baby girls are obsessed with “daddy’s cal-suss” and Jazzy had the brilliant idea to file them down.”

Using a brightly-colored nail file, 5-year-old Jasmine gets to work on her dad’s hands. Filing carefully but firmly, she tries her best to take off some of her 49-year-old dad’s hard-earned calluses.
“You’re doing so good, thank you so much,” Johnson says.
Turning his hand over slightly to get a better angle, Jasmine notices a small cut.
“What is that? That thing?” She asks, slightly alarmed that her patient may be worse off than she initially thought.
“That? It’s just a booboo,” Johnson responds.
“Oh,” she says, sounding relieved.
Jasmine continues filing away as she hums happily, taking great pleasure in a job well done.
“From having tea parties to Barbie adventures to scraping daddy’s calluses off his beat up dinosaur hands – there’s nothing like loving daddy/daughter bonding,” Johnson concludes. “Btw, her answer to ‘will you have calluses one day?’ was ‘Yup.’ That’s my girl.”
