The actor has a beautiful relationship with his mother and continues to shower her with gifts and surprises.
Dwayne Johnson is a prolific actor and is known for his big personality and the multiple franchises he started and continued. But anyone who follows him on his social media knows that he is extremely soft when it comes to his family. Like when he uploaded a video of him and his mother, Ata Johnson dancing a Samoan dance on her birthday, PEOPLE reported. He wrote on his Instagram, "Happiest of Birthdays Mom — our matriarch of our aiga 🌺❤️🌊🌴 We all get such joy seeing you radiate and smile and proudly display our culture. Grace, beauty, dignity, respect and strength. You can feel the mana of our ancestors all around us✨. And thank you for teaching our little girls “the way” thru kindness, love and strength. Even though these little tornados run in to swoop up some cash 🌪🌪🏃🏽♀️🏃🏽♀️💰😂 Happy Birthday Mom! We love you 🌺❤️"
While this may already place the actor on a higher pedestal, there are multiple ways Johnson has made his mother feel special. Like the time when he bought his mother a house and designed it for around eight weeks, according to PEOPLE. In a video, Ms. Johnson was seen taking a tour of the house that he had bought for her. Writing on Instagram, he said, "Love you mom, and surprise! When I was a little boy, I hated when my mom would cry ~ these days, I’ll happily take her tears of joy " Adding, "I surprised my mom and bought her a new home. Took me and my design team 8 weeks to get it ready, where she could walk thru her front door for the very first time and everything she saw was brand new and a total surprise."
In the caption, he also mentions how his mother would like to settle down after moving houses for a long time. "I’ve been lucky enough to have bought her a few homes over the years, but this one is special as she’s told me over and over these past few years, 'After a lifetime of traveling, I want this home to be my last. That's my dream,'" he wrote. "Mom, there’s no greater feeling than to make you happy ~ welcome home 🏠❤️🌺," he added. "I always say, if you got a good mom then you got a shot at becoming a good, caring human being. Let’s all give our mamas a big grateful squeeze this weekend and make ‘em happy," he concluded in his post.
Another time, he gifted his mother a car for Christmas, a brand-new Cadillac, PEOPLE wrote. The Jungle Cruise actor got help from his two daughters to celebrate the holidays with pomp. Once again, Johnson shared the excitement on Instagram. In the carousel, the first slide showed Ms. Johnson with her eyes covered while her granddaughters counted down before screaming, "Merry Christmas!" As she opens her eyes, it takes her a second to get used to it before she hugs Johnson. He wrote on Instagram, "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."
