Dwayne Johnson shared a sweet video of him surprising his mother with a new car for Christmas, and her reaction was pure joy.
The actor, 49, better known as The Rock, posted the heartwarming family footage on Instagram as he revealed it brought him even more joy to be able to get his mother the gift as he doesn’t take his current lifestyle and success for granted.
He wrote: ‘This one felt good. Surprised my mom with a new car for Christmas today. She was shocked. She got a few good ugly cries in. Then once her grand babies joined her inside the car. She was overcome with pure joy joy.
‘Hell, even Hobbs, my dog wanted to peep the whip with his new Christmas chicken.’
Dwayne was seen leading his mother Ata, 73, over to the car with his hand over her eyes as two of his daughters, Jasmine, six, and Tiana, three, countdown and shout ‘Merry Christmas!’ before the big reveal.
Ata’s face is a picture of shock as she covers her mouth after seeing the white Cadillac CT5, before heading over to Dwayne’s eldest daughter Simone, 20, behind the camera, who can be heard saying: ‘Merry Christmas Grammy!’
She could then be seen beaming with joy as she hopped behind the wheel with Jasmine and Tiana also clambering in, and Dwayne’s dog Hobbs – named after his character in the Fast and Furious franchise, John Hobbs – was seen sweetly carrying his own Christmas present to the door of the car to show Ata.
Dwayne admitted he doesn’t take having the means to buy his mother such a lavish gift for granted and appreciates the life they are able to live since he found fame.
He added: ‘I’m so grateful I can do this kinda stuff for my mom, who’s had one helluva life. I don’t take any of it for granted. Neither does she.
‘Merry Christmas ma, enjoy your new ride!!! And your Elvis records. We love you. You deserve a lot more ~ dj.’
