Dwayne Johnson: Being a father is the 'greatest'

Dwayne Johnson says being a father is the "greatest job" he's ever had.

The 'Furious 7' hitmaker - who has 14-year-old daughter Simone with his ex-wife Dany Garcia - insists there is nothing he wouldn't do for his little girl.

He shared: "I realised being a father is the greatest job I have ever had and the greatest job I will ever have. I always wanted to be a great dad. I always wanted to give Simone things that I felt I never got. I said to her, 'I will always, always take care of you, for the rest of your life. You are safe.'

"Throughout the years, throughout the ups and downs, I've realised that the most important thing that I could do with my daughter is lead our life with love. Not success, not fame, not anything else but, 'I'm always here for you. I love you.'"

The 43-year-old actor recalled a particularly special moment when he asked his daughter what she loved most about their relationship and she gave him a beautiful response.

Speaking on an episode Oprah's Master Class, he added: "There was a time where I said, 'Do me a favour: I want you to tell me what is the thing that you love most about our relationship.' And she said, 'Well, that I trust you.'

"And for a 13-year-old girl to say that to her dad, considering where I was at 13, the instability I had. She said, 'Well, that I trust you and that we have a very special bond,' that moved me. And so, you know, at 13, she's saying that and I couldn't ask for anything else."
