Dwayne Johnson Sings Moana Song for Daughter Tiana, Says ‘She Has No Idea’ He’s Voice of Maui
Tiana Gia may love when her dad sings “You’re Welcome” from Moana, but she hasn’t quite put the significance of it all together yet.
The little girl, who turns 2 this week, recently joined Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for an Instagram video in which he “sings along with Maui,” his character from the popular Disney musical, “for the 937th time today,” on Tia’s request.
“She has no idea, we’re the same person,” Johnson, 47, captioned the cute clip, in which Tia looks mostly unaffected at the beginning but smiles widely near the end, as her dad starts bouncing her up and down. “And I have no idea what day it is anymore, but I am sure it’s one that ends with Y.”
Johnson went on to address his fans who were also social distancing during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, writing, “To all the mama and papa bears out there going thru it — we understand. 24hr parenting.”
“Get your sleep and cocktails when you can,” he joked. “#BringItOnBaby
Johnson previously leveraged the rap portion of “You’re Welcome” to teach his youngest child to properly wash her hands — which, conveniently, lasts just about the length of the expert-recommended 20 seconds.
In the home video, the adorable little girl looked up at her dad as he sang to her, lathering her hands and changing one of his lyrics to “coronavirus has gotta go.”
“Our sheltering at home, pre daddy’s shower ritual,” the Jungle Cruise actor began his caption on the post. “Before my showers now, Baby Tia (mama mia) demands I sing the rap portion of my song ‘You’re Welcome’ from MOANA, while I wash her hands.”
“We realized a few weeks ago that the rap portion of the song is perfect timing when getting your little ones to have fun washing their hands. Stay healthy and safe, my friends,” Johnson added, hilariously wrapping up his caption with, “And gotta love how at the start of this vid, baby Tia is like, ‘just shut your mouth and sing daddy’”
