Previously, her title was called "Miss/Mr. Golden Globes."

On Saturday, Dwayne posted some adorable photos showing Simone at the Globes' rehearsal.

The caption says:

She’s focused and ready.
That’s a wrap on rehearsals.
I’m proud to the bone that my baby girl @simonegjohnson will be the first ever Golden Globes Ambassador.
This amazing apple didn’t fall far from that big ol’ tattooed tree.

Then today, Dwayne posted a video where he mentioned how happy he was to be introducing his daughter during the show.

He said:

As part of the 75th anniversary of the Golden Globes, the HFPA is creating a new honor: Golden Globe Ambassador with an expanded role that embodies the HFPA's year-round philanthropic efforts. Throughout my personal and professional life, I am surrounded by brilliant and strong women. Ladies and gentlemen, I am thrilled to introduce the first-ever ambassador, my 16-year-old daughter, Simone Garcia Johnson. Simone, I am so incredibly proud of you.


Simone responded, "Thank you. I want to thank my parents and I am so honored the HFPA selected me to be the first ambassador. I look forward to working with GlobalGirl Media, an organization that works to empower young women from underserved communities and new media journalism."

And never one to miss a joke, Dwayne had the best reply:

I love that honey and I love you. And charitable causes are great, which is why I let Kevin Hart be in all my movies."


The name of the organization Simone is working with is called GlobalGirl Media. Previously this post identified it as Golden Girl Media.
