“I wake up every day so grateful and so thankful that you have someone like [her]. Someone who you can walk through the world with,” Johnson says in an exclusive look at his upcoming episode on Oprah’s Master Class, which airs Sunday, Nov. 15 at 8 p.m. on OWN.
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.”
“The smile is real when I think about that,” he adds.
This week, the couple confirmed they’re going to have a baby girl. This will be Johnson’s second child. He shares a 14-year-old daughter with his ex-wife. Get more info about the pregnancy news in the video below:
