Dwayne Johnson is the ultimate BFG and family guy, as he’s demonstrated time and time again.

This Christmas was no different, and he took the opportunity to show some appreciation for his mum by gifting her a huge and life-changing present.


The WWE star-turned-actor shared a touching video of his mum, Ata, opening her Christmas present.

The present was a brand new house for her to move into – what an incredible present.

The Rock wrote on Instagram:


This one felt good. Surprise! Bought my mom a new home for Christmas.

All our lives growing up we lived in little apartments all across the country. Lived like gypsies on the road from one state to another.

The first home my parents ever lived in was the one I bought for them in 1999. They divorced about 5 years later and as with life, stuff happens and things got a little complicated. [sic]

The post continued:

Since then I always made sure my mom and dad have everything they’ll ever need – houses, cars etc.

But the house this time is a special one and the timing is very meaningful.

I told her to treat this card like it’s “Willy Wonka’s Golden Ticket” because she gets to choose any home she wants – anywhere she wants. [sic]

I always say, if you got a good mama, then you gotta pretty good shot at becoming a decent human being. [sic]

And somehow, somewhere along the line I became one lucky SOB to be able to make stuff like this happen. [sic]

Merry Christmas Ma and WOOOHOOO enjoy your new home. [sic]

The pair have an incredibly close relationship and have experienced a lot of turmoil, including when she attempted to take her own life.

Throughout the course of his career, from his rise to fame in the wrestling world and then eventually Hollywood, Johnson’s mother has been there every step of the way.

The two are often pictured together at film premieres, and on Mother’s Day back in 2015, he shared a photo of her crying while eating breakfast on a private plane – which was out of pride for her son.


The best part of the post was he signed off with the word ‘Dwanta’.

What a guy.
