Dwayne Johnson Buys Mom a House for Christmas and Her Reaction Is Priceless

Best son ever.

The Rock/Instagram

Dwayne Johnson has earned the nickname “Dwanta” after surprising his mom with a brand new house this Christmas. In a heartwarming Instagram video shared Sunday, The Rock captures mom Ata crying tears of joy as she opens her gift.

“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,” Johnson says in the emotional post’s caption. “I always say, if you got a good mama, then you gotta pretty good shot at becoming a decent human being.”

The 46-year-old Rampage actor describes how “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.” And while it’s not the first time he’s bought his parents a house (he notes that he bought them one in 1999, five years before they divorced), Johnson says this time it’s different.

Now that he’s “one lucky SOB to be able to make stuff like this happen,” the dad of two explains, “This one felt good… the house this time is a special one and the timing is very meaningful.” He closes the note with, “Merry Christmas Ma and WOOOHOOO enjoy your new home,” and signs it “Dwanta.”

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 5yrs later and as with life, stuff happens and things got a little complicated. 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. I always say, if you got a good mama, then you gotta pretty good shot at becoming a decent human being. And somehow, somewhere along the line I became one lucky SOB to be able to make stuff like this happen. Merry Christmas Ma and WOOOHOOO enjoy your new home. Dwanta ????????
