The Rock celebrates wedding anniversary
Seiuli Dwayne The Rock Johnson and his wife Lauren Hashian Johnson celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary on Tuesday.
The pair met while Seiuli was filming his movie Game Plan back in 2006 and have been dating ever since and have two daughters Jasmine and Tiana.
They were married last year in a secret ceremony in Hawaii in the early hours of Sunday morning on 18 August 2019.
Lauren, who is a musician, has a handful of songs online and also wrote a song in honour of their marriage last year called, 'Step into a love like this'.
Seiuli posted on Facebook about their one-year anniversary, where he said that from the moment he heard the song's opening line, of "...every angel in heaven is singing for us today...", he got very emotional as it is a tribute to their loved ones who have passed on and are no longer with them.
"I still get emotional today when I hear those words and watch this wedding footage," he said in a Facebook post
"Lauren is a gifted and soulful songwriter who wrote every single word of this song [and her vows] to reflect our life and blessings on our wedding day."
He expressed his appreciation to his wife in his post and also acknowledged the Pacific Island artist Fiji. The post reads:
The mate to my soul ❤️💍
One year ago today, on August 18, 2019 - I had the honour of marrying Lauren Hashian.
Later that night she surprised me with this beautiful song, “Step Into A Love Like This” that she wrote and sang herself in honour of our marriage.
From the moment I heard the song’s opening line, of “...every angel in heaven is singing for us today...” as a tribute to our loved ones who’ve passed away and no longer with us - I got very emotional.
As I still get emotional today when I hear those words and watch this wedding footage.
Lauren is a gifted and soulful songwriter who wrote every single word of this song (and her vows) to reflect our life and blessings on our wedding day.
I’m not a writer, so all I can do is speak from my heart and gut — and other than my three daughters being born — this is the greatest gift I’ve ever received.
Bottom line, I’m a lucky and grateful husband, father and man to have such an amazing woman by my side through this unpredictable, yet beautiful thing we call life.
Special shout to my extremely loving daughters, Jazzy and Tia for accompanying daddy as I got down on my knee to do the honors of asking for Lauren’s hand in marriage. Technically, she never said, “YES!” as she just bursted out laughing and then ugly crying, BUT I’ll take that response on the Hawaiian cliffs any day 😉💍
We hope that you all enjoy “Step Into A Love Like This” and our wedding day moments - as much as we are privileged to share it with you all on our anniversary.
With love, gratitude and mana - DJ 🖤

And fa’afetai lava to my uso Fiji (one of the greatest singers on the planet) for his beautiful Samoan song “Tualaga a Solomona” that I chose to play as I walked down the aisle.
