Who is Dwayne Johnson’s wife?
Johnson’s second wife is Lauren Hashian. The actor’s real-life leading lady is a singer with several singles on iTunes, including “Ride the Wave” and “Step Into a Love Like This.” In a 2017 interview with Vydia, Hashian revealed that she started “singing consistently” when she was a kid in middle school and draws inspiration from her “family and friends,” as well as “amazing voices and storytellers.”
While her husband is in the spotlight, Hashian loves “keeping a low-key profile and holding onto privacy and normalcy.” She explained, “Especially for [daughter] Jasmine, I don’t want to lose that. Since my man spends much of his life in front of a camera, I’m a little more reserved with stepping out and being ‘out there’ as much. It just gives us balance, and makes you appreciate privacy and a ‘normal’ life even more.”

“Within 30 seconds, I thought, ‘Wow, this girl’s stunning,’” the Jungle Cruise actor said of Hashian in an interview with WSJ Magazine (via USA Today). “At the time, I was going through my breakup with Dany, and she was just coming off a big breakup too. Ironically, when you’re not looking for something, the power of the universe kind of takes over.”

Prior to making things official, The Rock told Entertainment Tonight that he was in no rush to get married. “I just refer to her as my wife all the time. So a lot of people are like, ‘Oh, did you get married?’” he said. “I’m like, ‘No. Easy. Don’t rush big daddy.’”
The actor had been hesitant to get married again following his divorce from Garcia. “My divorce did a number on me,” Johnson confessed to WSJ Magazine (via Men’s Health). “I wasn’t fearful of getting married again, there was just some hesitancy. But Lauren was incredibly patient: ‘I love you, you love me, we have this amazing life together—no presh.’”

“You know, we get snippy with each other, we argue,” Johnson noted. “I’ve got to be honest with you, when this thing first started, the first two weeks of quarantine for me, I was really wobbly at times, and I was trying to get my sh*t together and trying to understand it, because I was also trying to think 10 steps ahead, what does the future look like, what does the new normal look like when I go back? Work, school, my household. There’s a lot of sh*t that we’re all thinking about; husbands, wives, you name it, we’re all thinking about it.”
