DWAYNE 'THE ROCK' JOHNSON "feels lucky" to have been able to create his own schedule because it means he can spend more time with his young children.

The 51-year-old actor - who was initially married to Dany Garcia and has 22-year-old Simone with her - now has Jasmine, seven, and five-year-old Tiana with current wife Lauren Hashian and explained that it has been "really nice" to be able to organise work around his family life, because that wasn't always the case.

He told People: "I think I've reached a point in my life where I can create my own schedule, which has really been nice, because it wasn't always that way, and I'm really lucky.

"And I think, in the spirit of creating my own schedule, it allows me to get closer to the girls and where they're around every corner they're with me. "

The 'Fast and Furious' star spends a lot of his time in Mexico and whilst he hasn't had the little girls down there just yet, he still plans to and when he is at home in his LA mansion, his office has become "daddy central" because it is where his kids like to spend their time whilst he carries out all of his business as one of the world's top movie stars .

He said: "So even though they haven't joined me down in Jesus Maria, I do plan on bringing them there. And some of the other things that we have coming up ... My office at the house is Daddy Central, where they're always hanging out, so they're always privy to all the stuff that's going on.

"It's like they're privy to the chocolate factory."
