Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's Daughter Named First-Ever Golden Globe Ambassador

The Fate of the Furious star's daughter is making history—and she's only 16 years old!

According to ABC News, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson's child, Simone Garcia Johnson, would be the first-ever Golden Globe Ambassador, ahead of the January 2018 event. As such, she'll work with GlobalGirl Media, an organization that seeks to develop the "voice and media literacy of teenage girls and young women" in disadvantaged areas.

The Golden Globe Ambassador title replaces the previous role of Mr. or Miss Golden Globe. As part of the role, Garcia Johnson will assist in handing out awards to the night's winners, ushering them onto and off of the stage.

A statement from HFPA president Meher Tatna read, "As we look forward to the 75th anniversary of the Golden Globe Awards, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association members decided to expand this role to embody the HFPA's philanthropic efforts year round," adding, "The honoree will now be referred to as the Golden Globe ambassador and we could not think of a better representative than Simone to carry on this tradition, as her values closely reflect everything the HFPA stands for."

Regarding her new gig, Garcia Johnson said, "As the newly minted Golden Globe ambassador, I hope to serve as a role model to young people everywhere and empower them to speak out on issues they are passionate about."

On social media, the teenager added, "Finding words to describe exactly how i feel right now is a bit hard... I feel so blessed to be a part of this incredible journey and be known as the first Golden Globe Ambassador."

And, of course, Johnson is a proud father. The actor addressed his daughter's big news on Instagram, writing, "We're extremely proud and thankful for this moment. Congratulations to our daughter @simonegjohnson on being selected as the very first #GoldenGlobes AMBASSADOR. Thank you to our friends and colleagues of the #HFPA for recognizing her value and voice. An amazing and cool honor to rep our community and the #Globes75."
