"Christmas came early! Within minutes of being born she was laying on daddy's chest. And being a grateful man takes on a whole new meaning," he captioned the photo of his baby girl laying on his bare chest. "Thank you guys so much for the awesome congratulatory wishes and love you've been sending @laurenhashianofficial and myself. We're extremely grateful."
The Tooth Fairy star got very emotional as he continued with his inspirational message.
"Kinda crazy but in this cool and powerful skin to skin bonding moment with my newborn baby Jasmine, I had just one wish I asked the universe... Give me the strength to be a better man today than I was yesterday. If I can accomplish that, then I'd have a good shot at being a great father," he wrote to his 36 million followers.
"To all you young men out there who will be fathers one day, the goal of ‘being better' will never steer you wrong. Trust me. Something else that'll never steer you wrong is ‘walking thru the fire' with your baby's mama," he added. "I was right there during labor, helping her breathe, every highly intense contraction, every second of pain, right there watching the actual birth, cutting the cord and wiping the tears. Incredible."
While this is his first daughter with his longtime girlfriend, Johnson also has a 14-year-old daughter with his ex-wife Dany Garcia.
