Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson is making sure his daughter knows early on in life that she can grown up to be a strong woman.

In honour of International Women's Day on Monday, the actor shared an adorable throwback video of himself and his three-year-old daughter, Tiana Gia, reciting a series of empowering and positive affirmations.

In the clip, the actor can be seen holding the tiny tot close to his chest, while asking her questions like 'Can you say I'm a pretty girl?' to which the youngster adorably replies: 'I'm a pretty girl'.

The star makes sure to run though some affirmations that refer to his daughter's character, rather than her appearance alone, at one point adding: 'That's right, and even more importantly than that can you say "I'm an awesome girl?"

Tiana replies with a cheeky smile: 'Awesome girl.'

The Fast and Furious actor then proceeds to tell his daughter to tell herself that she's a 'smart girl', which is promptly followed by a sweet 'very smart girl' declaration.

The father-of-two ends the video with a toast to the future, noting: 'And I want you to say "I can do anything"', to which the toddler eagerly agrees and says 'Anything'.

This isn't the first time the actor has given fans a glimpse into his home life with the toddler and the wisdom he's trying to impart.

Last year, Johnson shared a hilarious video of himself attempting to prove to the then two-year-old that he indeed is Maui, from the Disney film Moana by singing his animated character's (for which he provided the voice) signature song.

The actor captioned the clip 'Could this be the glorious day my sweet baby Tia, finally accepts that her daddy is the demigod, Maui from MOANA?' and revealed that it was 'a very firm NO' from the toddler.

Better luck next time, Dwayne?
