Dad to 3 girls, he is constantly spending as much time as he can with them, despite his busy schedule.

This isolation business doesn't seem to be affecting anything, but I mean if you're stuck in the house with Dwayne Johnson, how can you be sad?

This isn't the only time The Rock has been forced to sing by his daughters, and the latest video just proves the lengths he'll go to make them smile.

After the birth of his third child, he posted this on Instagram:

Have you ever read something so heartwarming?

2. He's amazing to his fans!

He spends a lot of time surprising his biggest fans and giving them probably the best experience of their lives.

And most of them would risk their lives to get a picture with their favorite celebrity. On multiple occasions, people have stopped traffic to try and get close to him!

3. "You can feel him before you see him."

In an article by Rolling Stone, director Brad Peyton said: "There’s a buzz in the air – a rumble. Maybe that rumble comes from the fact that he’s 250 pounds of muscle, I don’t know. But when he walks on set, there’s a definite sense that it’s game time."

4. He eats a lot!

It might be a weird thing to love him for, but listen to this! The Rock has a daily diet that consists of 5,165 calories! This comes out to 7 meals a day! Keep scrolling to meet the guy who spent a month eating and training as much as The Rock every day...

This is the real-life "Man vs Food!"

His "Cheat Day" consists of: "Chocolate chip & peanut butter cookies with Oreo cookie ice cream, 1 slice of cheesecake, 1 big ass chocolate fudge cookie with salted caramel chips." You could never devour this sugar infested meal like The Rock could. Props.

5. He 's one of the greatest wrestlers of all-time.

From epic storylines to fierce battles in the ring, The Rock has given us some of the best WWE matches in history.

If you haven't watched The Rock demolishing his opponents in the ring, then you're really missing out.

His most dramatic rivalries include the likes of John Cena, Brock Lesnar, and Stone Cold Steve Austin.

6. He takes care of his mom.

This one tugs at the heart-strings quite a bit.

In a Facebook post, he revealed this:

"At fourteen, I saw my mom crying about our only car being repossessed. This felt good. Merry Christmas, mom." If you don't love him already, then you need to go and see a doctor. I think you're missing a heart.

7. He doesn't take himself too seriously.

You only have to watch one of his interviews to realize that, or take a look at his Instagram page, which is equally as uplifting...

A few weeks back Johnson also opened up about the Black Lives Matter movement.

And, in an 8-minute clip shared to his Instagram, the star directly called out Trump for his lack of compassionate and empowering leadership during these times.

In the video, the star asks Trump one very simple question... Where are you?

"Where is our leader at this time?" he questions. "This time when our country is down on its knees begging, pleading, hurt, angry, frustrated, in pain, begging and pleading with its arms out just wanting to be heard?"

Johnson spoke emotionally during the clip.

"Where is our compassionate leader who is going to step up to our country who's down on its knees and extend a hand and say, you stand up. Stand up with me. Stand up with me, because I got you," Johnson said. "I got you, I hear you, I'm listening to you."

The star also took some time to address the "All Lives Matter" debate...

Of course all lives matter. Every single one," he said. "All lives matter because we, as Americans, we believe in inclusivity, we believe in acceptance, we believe in human rights. We believe in equality for all. "But in this moment right now, this defining, pivotal, explosive moment where our country is down on its knees -- the floorboards of our country are becoming unhinged -- in this moment, we must say the words black lives matter," he continued. We must say it because so many people believe that they don't ... or at least not as much as white lives," he added.

You can see the video below.

But now Johnson is in the news for a much more light-hearted reason.

The Rock is a big guy.

Perhaps you didn't notice it, but The Rock is a pretty large and muscular fellow - and I'd take a wild guess and say he's fairly strong.

But just how strong is he?

Well he's stronger than a metal gate if this story is anything to go by...

His front metal gate wouldn't open.

Apparently there was a technical problem with the gate caused by 'severe storms' so The Rock called a technician but they couldn't come round right away.

So... he 'did what he had to do'.

And by that, he means he literally ripped the gate from the wall. More specifically, The Rock explained:
I pushed, pulled and ripped the gate completely off myself. Tore it out of the brick wall, severed the steel hydraulics and threw it on the grass. My security team was able to meet the gate technician and welders about an hour later — and they were apparently, “in disbelief and equally scared." Not my finest hour, but I had to go to work.

Only The Rock could do this.

I certainly know that I couldn't. I struggle to open my door with the key in my hand most nights.
