PEOPLE names The Rock “Sexiest Man Alive” because fatherhood looks good on him
PEOPLE just named Dwayne Johnson “The Sexiest Man Alive.” We could have told you that. We’ve been hearing the sounds of ovaries exploding throughout the land since he became a father for the second time, earlier this year.
Yes, fatherhood looks good on the man. His cute little dog doesn’t hurt either. Regardless, we’re pretty sure his irresistible daddy-hood Instagram posts secured his spot.
Okay, maybe it’s just that he’s… The Rock. Who knows. But we gathered a few of the posts anyway to make our point.
Exhibit A: Tiny, adorable newborn on giant chest.
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. To all you young men out there who will be fathers one day, the goal of “being better” will never steer you wrong. Trust me I’ve been down this road. Something else that’ll never steer you wrong is “walking thru the fire” with your baby’s mama. I was right there during labor, helping her breathe, every highly intense contraction, every second of pain, right there watching the actual birth, cutting the cord and wiping the tears. Incredible. *(Now don’t get me wrong boys, it wasn’t like I was at the end of the table, squatting like a catcher waiting for the fastball to come down the pike..😂 but as men, it’s a miracle we should witness because it’ll give you a whole new respect for the strength and beauty of a woman). Again, THANK YOU guys so much for all the love during this blessed time. I always say I’m a lucky dude because I’ve got the greatest fans in the world – and it’s true. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your families from ours. #ChristmasCameEarlyToSayHello #WhileSleepOfficiallySaysGoodbye #2xProudPapaSilverback #SheCanDateWhenShes40 💪🏾👊🏾💯

What the hell is it with men and babies? What is it?
Exhibit C: Awww.
I’m always asked – What inspires YOU? My answer’s easy and honest.. what inspires me the most is always waitin’ for me to walk thru my front door when I come home. Happy 4 month birthday Jasmine! One day you’ll know just how happy, proud, lucky and blessed you, your sister and your mama make me. You’ll also thank me one day for your toughness and your mama’s everything else. 😉 #HappyBirthdayJas #DaddysLilToughGirl #GratefulMan #Ohana4L

Exhibit D: Diaper duty.
Basically, The Rock + babies = ovaries exploding everywhere, forever. So yeah. We’re not surprised at PEOPLE’s pick.
