The Rock is honeymooning at a Disney convention.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson got married last weekend in Hawaii to longtime partner Lauren Hashian—and then spent Saturday promoting “Jungle Cruise” at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California.

He says his new wife didn’t mind.

“She loved it because she knows D23—as she knows—is named after me. Dwayne. That’s where the D comes from,” Johnson joked on a red carpet at the convention. “We had a great wedding. Yes. It was really beautiful.”

Johnson partnered with Emily Blunt to make the movie “Jungle Cruise” based on the Disneyland ride, set to be released next year.

Blunt said her favorite moment making the film came during a comedic bit with Johnson while escaping an “Amazonian tribe.”

“The dialogue that happens and the comedy that happened in that—we could not make it through a take without laughing. So I have such a fond memory of it. It was like agony to try and get through the scene,” Blunt said.

Johnson added: “It gave me so much joy to make her laugh so hard that the takes were ruined.”

“Jungle Cruise,” directed by Jaume Collet-Serra and also starring Paul Giamatti and Jack Whitehall is to be released next summer.

The Wedding

Johnson shared his celebratory event in an Instagram post stating he had tied the knot with Lauren Hashian, whom he had started dating back in 2007 after they met in 2006 on the set of the movie, “The Game Plan,” according to People magazine.

“We do. August 18th, 2019. Hawaii. Pōmaikaʻi (blessed),” he wrote in the post. Johnson was wearing an all-white dress shirt and pants, while Hashian wore a long white lacy dress while holding on to an assorted flower bouquet. They celebrated their marriage near the water in Hawaii.

In the same post, he tagged his now-wife, as well as Hiran Garcia, his ex-wife’s brother, who currently served as the president of Seven Bucks Productions, the production company that both Johnson and his ex-wife, Dany Garcia, founded. Johnson split from his ex-wife back in 2007 amicably after a 10-year marriage, and the two have remained close as friends.

Hiran Garcia also congratulated Johnson on his marriage to Hashian on an Instagram post, writing, “Massive congrats to my brotha [Dwayne Johnson] and his glowing bride/best friend [Lauren Hashian]. It was an honour to be there for your big day. Cheers for years!!”

Many people online have given the couple congratulatory messages in the comment section of both Johnson’s and Garcia’s post.
