By Tiffany Meier

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is ecstatic about his daughter’s graduation.

The 47-year-old “Rampage” star proudly shared a set of photos of his 17-year-old daughter Simone’s high school graduation on Instagram, on Friday, May 24.

“And then your babies graduate,” he captioned the photos. “Very proud of my first daughter daughter graduating high school, kickin’ ass and is now NYU bound.”

In the second photo, Simone can be seen shying away from Dwayne as he attempts to give her a kiss on the cheek.

“I love you and one day you’ll stop pulling away from my beastly arms & kisses,” Johnson added.

One person commented on the post, “How funny…what girl would pass up a hug and a kiss from you. No one but your daughter! Lol.”

Simone also posted about the special day, sharing a photo of her and a friend with matching graduation caps.

“I’m with you until the end of the line,” she captioned the post, referencing a line from Marvel’s “Captain America: Winter Soldier.”

The cap featured half of Captain America’s shield, while the other half was that of Bucky Barnes, a fictional superhero who fought communists.

Laughin’ at the time back in high school when I got into a Valentine’s Day argument w/ my girlfriend and she so clearly told me where I could shove ????????????????‍♂my roses. Flew from LA to Miami so I could spend an awesome afternoon and lovely dinner with my #1 Valentine @simonegjohnson. Little sleep but so well worth our invaluable and fun father/daughter time. SO PROUD of her and that apple sure didn’t fall far from this tree. Dropped her off, gave her a massive bear hug and back on the bird to get to work. A special Valentines and now excuse me while I get crazy and bring new meaning to the term “mile high club” by goin’ to town on my chicken and pasta. #fatherdaughter #grateful????
