Dwayne Johnson’s family is growing! The 43-year-old actor and professional wrestler is expecting a child with longtime girlfriend Lauren Hashian, Us Weekly reports.

“They are so excited!” a source told the magazine.

This will be the first child for the couple, who have been together for nine years. Johnson is already a dad to a 14-year-old daughter named Simone, who he had with ex-wife Dany Garcia.

The Rock’s exciting news comes just after he announced that he welcomed two fur babies into his family. Over Labour Day weekend, the “Furious 7” star shared an Instagram photo of his two French bulldog puppies, Brutus and Hobbs.

Here's a fun Labor Day weekend story... We just decided to add two new members to our Johnson family. Baby French Bulldogs. In my right hand is BRUTUS and in my left hand is HOBBS. Bring them home and immediately take them outside so they can start learning how to "handle their business and potty like big boys". I set them both down and they both take off in a full sprint and fall right into the deep end of our pool. HOBBS immediately starts doggy paddling while BRUTUS (like a brick) sink heads first to the bottom of the pool. I take off into a full sprint, fully clothed, dive in the pool, swim to the bottom, rescue my brick, I mean BRUTUS and bring him back to the edge of the pool. He was a little delirious.. took a moment, threw up all the water he swallowed and looked up at me as if to say, "Thank God you didn't have to give me mouth to mouth!" and then ran off to play with his brother. A few lessons I've learned today.. A) Not all puppies have the instinct to doggie paddle. B) Some puppies (like BRUTUS) will be so in shock by experiencing water they will sink extremely fast so react quick. C) While spiriting to save your puppies life, before you dive in, try and throw your cel phone to safety. Don't keep it in your pocket... like I did. #BRUTUSLives #HOBBSCanSwim #MyCelPhonesDead #AndNoMouthToMouthNeeded #HappyLaborDay

Johnson has always made it clear that his family is very important to him. In a recent interview with Esquire, the actor revealed that he wished people would ask him more about his home life.

“We do these stories and we talk so much about the business end, the success end, but then Lauren isn't mentioned and my daughter isn't mentioned,” he said. “I always like making sure we find the balance and my home life is in there and Lauren Hashian is in there and my daughter is in there.”

“With all the cool shit and success that I’ve been lucky enough to get? That doesn’t happen unless the home life is solid.”

According to Hollywood Life, Johnson and Hashian’s baby is due in January 2016.
