Actor and former wrestler, Dwayne Johnson aka ‘The Rock’ has finally put to rest his presidential ambition saying he has chosen parenting over the oval office.
This was despite his initial plan last year when he said he has an ambition to unite the country, ‘if that is what the people want.’
Dwayne also buttressed the possibility of him running for the presidency as he is being urged to run in a new Instagram post.
However, the 50- year-old Jumanji star, in a CBS programme recently, explained that though he loves his country but he prefers to be more of a father to his daughters.
He said: “It’s off the table. I will say this because it requires a B-side: I love our country and everyone in it. I also love being a daddy. And that’s the most important thing to me — is being a daddy. Number one, especially during this time, this critical time in my daughters’ lives, because I know what it was like to be on the road and be so busy that I was absent for a lot of years in my first daughter’s … life. And that’s what the presidency would do.”
Johnson has three daughters; six-year old Jasmine, and four-year old Tiana, with wife, Lauren Hashian in addition to 21-year-old Simone from his first marriage to Dany Garcia.
