Johnson is enjoying every moment with Jasmine and is feeling very grateful this holiday season.

"Christmas came early," he wrote in the Instagram caption. "Within minutes of being born she was laying on daddy's chest. And being a grateful man takes on a whole new meaning ... We're extremely grateful. 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."
