Dwayne Johnson is choosing children over country.
The "Black Adam" actor has long been thought of as a potential (and popular) Presidential candidate, but he said a run for the country's top office is "off the table" for now.
"It'd be my honor to serve you, the people," he told CBS Sunday Morning. "I love our country and everyone in it. I also love being a daddy."
The Rock has three daughters — Simone Johnson, 21, Jasmine Johnson, 6, and Tiana Johnson, 4.
"That's the most important thing to me, is being a daddy, number one," he added, "especially during this time, this critical time in my daughters' lives."
Reflecting on his professional wrestling days in which he traveled the country for weeks on end, he said he learned his lesson in regard to being away from Simone. Campaigning for POTUS — or being the commander-in-chief — would often keep him busy… too busy to be an effective father.
"I know what it was like to be on the road and be so busy that I was absent for a lot of years when my first daughter's growing up in these critical age and this critical time in her life and that's what the presidency will do," he said.
The "Jungle Cruise" star spoke more about his decision on Instagram, too.
"With midterms here and a presidential election 2 years away, I've been approached by the most influential in politics on both sides of the aisle asking and supporting that I run for President," he said. "It's a humbling, grateful and inspiring feeling to even have these conversations, as I'm not a politician nor have I ever aspired to be one."
Saying he's a "patriot to my core," he insisted that fatherhood is the top priority.
"To raise 'em and always be there, during these critical years in their life," he said. "I know what it's like to not be there all the time as a father, because of an unrelenting work schedule. I won't let that happen ever again. Choosing parenting over presidency."
A Newsweek poll from last year indicated that 46% of Americans would support The Rock for POTUS, which is more support than either potential 2024 candidates Joe Biden or Donald Trump.
