"Yes, I'm very proud of Simone," Johnson said in an interview on Access. "She's my oldest daughter. She's 18-years-old. It's so cool.

"I'm so proud of her because you know that world, it's a difficult world, not only to be in but to make it in. It's also doubly difficult when you're a woman.

Meanwhile, the Rock's former wrestling partner in the Nation of Domination, Mark Henry has hailed the superstar as the no.1 entertainer in the world.

“He is the no.1 entertainer in the world," Henry said. "I mean nobody can inspire to be the no.1 entertainer in the world.

"That’s the kind of that happens through hard work and work ethic and talent, and Dwayne is f****** pretty. I hate pretty people. A man shouldn’t be pretty. He should be rugged and rustic."
