In 2019, Johnson made waves when he posted pictures from his highly private Hawaii wedding with his longtime girlfriend, Hashian. DJ addressed it on the show and said, “It was a beautiful, beautiful wedding. And I gotta tell ya, with something like this. As you guys can imagine, it’s hard to keep something like that under wraps. But it was so private, and there was maybe ten people with our babies and it was just the best wedding.”

Moreover, when pressed on why it was private, he explains, “It’s noisy, as you know, so with all that, we just figured we wanted to pivot and go the other way.” The Rock is, after all, always in the spotlight, and he has said that it can be stressful to be constantly in the eyes of so many people.

Therefore, he and his wife decided to keep it private where there were only 10 people. Interestingly, despite being a Hollywood superstar, Hashian initially showed little interest in ‘DJ’.
