Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson spent International Women’s Day doing what any good feminist ally would do—educating his daughter, Jasmine, about the power of girls.

In a video he posted to Instagram Thursday evening, Johnson asks his 2-year-old “queen” if she knows how to say the words “girl power” and “International Women’s Day.” Jasmine totally nails both of them, by the way.

Of course, Johnson couldn’t help but add in a joke so he also asked Jasmine to say that he was the “most handsome, brilliant, and sexiest man alive.” Jasmine didn’t fall for it, though, and only laughed at her father.

Girl power. To every woman out there ‘round the world—all ages and races—I proudly stand by your side to always honor, protect and respect,” Johnson wrote on Instagram. “Especially, the loves of my life at home. Now if I can just get Jazzy to say the daddy is the most handsome, brilliant, sexiest man alive part, then we all gonna be cool.”

Johnson shares Jasmine with his girlfriend Lauren Hashian. The couple is expecting a second child, as well.

Johnson’s post comes just a few days after Jasmine was taken to the emergency room for an unspecified health scare, according to previous posts from Johnson. Fans online expressed relief to see Jasmine looking healthy and happy.
