Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has a new nickname this Christmas — “Dw-anta Claus.”
The action star took to Instagram on Saturday to share a touching video of his mother, Ata’s, reaction to the gift he gave her this holiday: a brand-new house.
DWAYNE JOHNSON’S STUNT DOUBLE AND COUSIN CRIES WHEN RECEIVING A SWEET GIFT OF THE ACTION STARS
“This felt good. Surprise!!! Bought my mother a new house for Christmas,” he began, before explaining that his youth was full of moving from small apartment to small apartment in the whole country as his parents tried to make ends meet. “The first house my parents ever lived in was bought for them in 1999. They divorced about 5yrs later and as with life, things happen and things went a bit complicated. Since then I’ve always ensured that my mum and dad have everything they’ll ever need.”
“This gift is a special and although the timing is very meaningful. I told her to treat this card is, as the ‘Willy Wonka’s Golden Ticket’, because they get to choose for a house that they want – wherever they want,” Johnson continued. “I always say, if you’re a good mama, then you should have a fairly good chance to be a decent human being. And in one way or another, somewhere along the line, I was a lucky SOB to be able to make things like this happen. Merry Christmas Ma and WOOOHOOO enjoy your new home. Dwanta 🎅🏾.”
THE ROCK SAYS THAT HE ‘LOVES’ THAT HIS TEENAGE DAUGHTER, SIMONE WANTS TO WRESTLE
There is nothing more important than family for the Rock, who recently shared a precious photo of himself cuddling his youngest two daughters, Jasmine and Tiana.
“Daddy’s arms. I’m not going to be able to hold ’em, like this forever, so you better believe I snatch these cookies and love ’em up every moment that I can,” he wrote. “And I know there will come a day, where in papa’s arms is the last place where they want to be. Baby Tiana Gia is already there with the ‘help me’ look on her face 😂🤦🏽♂️.”
“You can’t guarantee that I’ll love and protect all my daughters for the rest of their lives, but I can guarantee that I will use for the rest of the mine. #xmas #daddysarms #helpme,” he added.
