- Lauren Hashian, 34, is a singer, songwriter, music producer, and oh—Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s wife/
- Hashian is from a musical family and started her career in her dorm room at Emerson College.
- Lauren Hashian, by all accounts, seems pretty down to earth.
The longtime girlfriend of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Hashian has been a singer, songwriter, and music producer since the age of 19, when she turned her dorm room at Emerson College into its own private studio. Music is in her blood—her father was the drummer in the rock band Boston—and the mother of two is making a name for herself in the music industry. She told Vydia in 2017 that she loves to keep “a low-key profile” for her children, especially since Johnson “spends much of his life in front of a camera.”
Over the weekend, the Rock posted a photo that confirmed they officially got married on August 18 in Hawaii.
Hashian and Johnson have been together since 2006.
Thirteen years can feel like a lifetime in Hollywood, and Johnson credits the longevity of their relationship to humor. “First of all, she teases me about everything. Everything,” he told People in 2016. “Nothing is off limits in our house. And it’s the beauty of it. And I tease her with everything.”
Hashian and Johnson met in Boston on the set of his movie The Game Plan, according to The Boston Herald. At the time, Johnson was married to producer and professional bodybuilder Dany Garcia, with whom he has a daughter, Simone. Garcia and Johnson split in 2007, but it was amicable, with Garcia serving as Johnson’s manager.
In an interview with Esquire in 2015, Johnson revealed that he and Hashian had been living together for “going on, like, eight, nine years now,” meaning they moved in together quickly after they began dating. The couple made their red carpet debut nearly seven years into their relationship when they walked the red carpet for the G.I. Joe: Retaliation Los Angeles premiere in 2013. They’ve only walked the red carpet together a handful of times in their relationship.
Hashian’s second pregnancy delayed their plan to marry in the spring of 2018, according to Johnson’s interview with Rolling Stone. “And Mama don’t wanna take wedding pictures with a big belly—Mama wanna look good.”
Johnson gushed to Entertainment Tonight about Hashian: “I’ve got a lot of things happening in my life, and I’ve been so lucky and fortunate to be blessed with a lot of things. The relationship part to me is my most prized thing. The people in my life. I’ve learned the power that we have to make other people happy and content in a relationship. And I have the love of my life, Lauren, who I’ve had for eight years now. I wake up every day so grateful and so thankful that I have someone like that, someone that you can walk through this world with.”
And Hashian considers him a massive influence on her as well. She told Vydia: “He is my motivator and my sounding board every day. Always giving me notes on the work, always motivating me to outdo my last effort. Honestly, if I impress him with a track then I feel accomplished, it’s true! He is an example of how anything you can imagine or dream up, you can do because he lives that way.”
Hashian comes from music royalty.
Hashian is the daughter of Sib Hashian, the drummer for the band Boston. Despite growing up in a musical household, her father didn’t have musical aspirations for his daughters. Hashian told Coveteur: “We were a musical family, but he would constantly say things like, ‘You guys don’t want to get into this business,’ because he had faced a lot of challenges and a lot of distrust between some people he had worked with in the past. I grew up thinking that we wouldn’t go in that direction. I really thought that I would go off and get a normal nine-to-five, but I don’t know; if you love doing something, you just find a way back to it no matter what, right?”
Her musical career began with winning an award during her time at Emerson College, where she graduated with a B.A. in public relations and communications in 2006. She told Coveteur, “We formed this little collective and started turning our dorm rooms into recording studios. Our school was big into the arts, and it supported kids’ creativity. There was a [school] show called The Evvy Awards, and it was a version of the Grammys or the Emmy Awards. Myself and this kid who called himself ‘Reality’ recorded a song—I sang and he rapped—and we ended up winning the award that year.”
Hashian has released two songs on SoundCloud, “Memory” and “You Are Mine.” In addition, she co-wrote “Only You” with hip-hop artist YaBoi Shad, and dropped two music videos for 2017’s “Go Hard” and 2018’s “Samson” with Naz Yokio. Her most recent track is a feature on “Serve It Cold” by Manus.
Hashian and Johnson are the parents of two daughters.
A few days before Christmas in 2015, Johnson and Hashian welcomed baby girl Jasmine into the world. Johnson commemorated the event with a touching Instagram post.
In 2017, Hashian told Vydia about how Jasmine’s birth changed her: “When you have a daughter you realize right away you’re their main example as a woman, as a human being, a mother, a friend, a wife, a dreamer, everything… and it inspires you. To be the best version of yourself and to give 110 percent of yourself, in not just motherhood, but in all areas of your life. As cliche as it sounds, after you have a child you understand more than ever what’s truly important in life.”
In April 2018, they were joined by daughter Tiana. Johnson’s Instagram caption included a salute to the “strong women” in his life.
Both Hashian and Johnson love sharing images of their adorable children on their Instagram feeds, too:
Johnson’s not the only one with a television career.
Hashian, according to IMDb, appeared on one episode of R U The Girl, a reality competition show from 2005 where the remaining members of TLC (Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas) looked for a third member to join their group. She didn’t win, but her life only flourished from then on.
