Prepare yourself for a proud papa moment that will steal your breath away.

On Sunday, Dec. 20, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson shared the first photo of his newborn baby girl Jasmine on Instagram and the heartwarming daddy-daughter moment has us clutching our chests IRL.

In the touching black and white photo, the 43-year-old actor can be seen affectionately cradling the days-old daughter he shares with longtime girlfriend Lauren Hashian. If that doesn't get the tears and the awws flowing, The Rock's caption will definitely force out a good, long ugly cry.

"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," he wrote. " If I can accomplish that, then I'd have a good shot at being a great father."

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..πŸ˜‚ 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 πŸ’ͺπŸΎπŸ‘ŠπŸΎπŸ’―

SIGH. It doesn't get any sweeter than a new father dishing out advice to the guys and praying that he can be the best dad ever all while praising women for our strength and beauty.

Those are some serious #DadGoals.
