Johnson, who was previously married to Dany Garcia, has been
with Hashian for eight years -- and he seems as happy as ever. In the new
episode, the 43-year-old action star opens up about the challenging times he
had as a kid -- dysfunctional family, poverty, broken football dreams -- and almost
seems amazed that he’s grown up to be a loving man and father.
“This is the kid who grew up an only child, who shouldered all
the family’s problems,” Johnson says. “That kid who had a hard time with
relationships is this man today.”
