(MEDIA GENERAL) -- He's sweet, smart—and sculpted! Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is People Magazine's 2016 Sexiest Man Alive.

The reveal was made Tuesday on "Good Morning America."

Johnson took to Twitter to thank People Magazine and his fans.

"Grateful for the luv!" he wrote.

The former WWE champ turned actor is dad to two daughters, 11-month old Jasmine with longtime girlfriend Lauren Hashian and 15-year-old Simone with ex-wife Dany Garcia.

He stars in the upcoming Disney film "Moana," which hits theaters next week.

"I said, ‘That's awesome.' And then what went through my mind was just how cool and exciting it is," Johnson told People when learning of the title. "And then I thought, ‘Wow, we've pretty much reached the pinnacle.' I'm not quite too sure where we go from here. I've done it all. This is it."

People's Sexiest Man Alive issue hits newsstands Friday.

Johnson is the 31st man to hold the title. David Beckham was last year's Sexiest Man Alive.
