Father’s Day is Sunday and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is sharing his proudest moments as a dad thus far.

During an interview with PEOPLE, the Baywatch star detailed what he loved most about being a dad and offered a super comforting message to his daughters.

“My proudest moment as a father would be, umm … well I have two,” the star said. “When Simone was born, I remember looking at her and saying, ‘I’m gonna take care of you for the rest of my life.’ And then when Jasmine was born, I held her and I held her on my chest and I said the exact same thing. So there’s a lot of cheese on this pizza right now in that delivery (laughs). It’s very easy, but it’s the truth.”

Last month, the proud father of two posted an adorable image of him and his baby girl enjoying time at the Chattahoochee River.

“She grabbed daddy’s hand and started pulling me right down the middle of the Chattahoochee,” the star wrote in an Instagram post uploaded on Memorial Day. “Fearless lil’ human. My heart’s filled with gratitude for being able to spend this day with my family before I jump on a bird and head to Germany tonight for work. Boundless love and respect to the brave men and women who sacrificed it all for their country and family, so I can love and protect my own.”

Simone and Jasmine seem to have a wonderful dad. May Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson continue to be an inspiration to dads throughout the world.
